Deals and Steals, Week of 1/3/10

Chloë and I ran to CVS at noon on Sunday to get the weekly deals that we could use. We saved lots of money and got all this for about $25 after coupons and Extra Care Bucks (no pictures because Rob put everything away before I could get the camera):

  • (2) 64-oz bottles of V8 Splash juice
  • 12-pack of 16.9-oz Aquafina water, since our filtration system needs repair
  • 60-watt GE Energy Smart lightbulb
  • Nivea Men's Body Wash
  • (2) Nivea Lip Care tubes (mmm, feels good)
  • (2) 12-packs of Coke
  • (2) 12-packs of Caffeine-Free Diet Coke
  • (2) boxes Post Trail Mix Crunch cereal
  • Box Fruity Pebbles cereal
  • Box Cocoa Pebbles cereal
  • Bottle of Softsoap pump soap

Sweet deals! Now for the Walgreens shopping trip with Sophia, later in the afternoon:


I spent right about $40, after sales, coupons and Register Rewards, and I still came home with $8 in Register Rewards for next time in my pocket! This stuff represents WAY more than that - more than twice as much, I would venture to guess - at full retail price. Here's what I got:

  • Sensodyne Pronamel "For Children" toothpaste
  • (2) Reach Total Care toothbrushes, adult
  • 60-count Viactiv Chews, chocolate
  • (2) 25-count canisters of travel wipes (can ALWAYS use those in the car!)
  • Huge chocolate chunk cookie, for Sophia
  • Reese's PB Cups, for Jack and Chloë
  • (2) Neosporin Nighttime Lip Care (definitely need that right now for the kids)
  • Kellogg's Special K original cereal
  • Kellogg's Special K Vanilla & Almonds cereal
  • (8) cans Progresso Chicken Noodle soup
  • Children's Tylenol Plus Cold
  • Children's Tylenol Plus Flu
  • Electrasol Finish tablets
  • Visine eye drops
  • Children's Robitussin
  • Robitussin Nighttime Cough & Cold (Rob needs this NOW)
  • (2) Neosporin Antibacterial Ointment tubes

Motorcycle helmet not included! ;) The best part of saving all this money is when I show and tell to Rob, and he says, "Thank you for being such a smart shopper!" and then he makes me up a nice first-aid kit with all the good things I'm able to buy for so cheap. Of course, I must say thanks to Deal Seeking Mom for helping me put all these deals together. So thanks, Tara!
