Picked up this deal for only $4.24. That makes it only 26.5 cents per roll from Staples. Who would think to pick up toilet paper from Staples? It's on sale for $4.99 and then I used a coupon here to get 15% off!

This week CVS is advertising the Doves Men+Care bodywash for $5. The register rings these up at $3, but here's the kicker. The buy one, get one free coupon in the 6/26 Red Plum insert subtracts $5.99 off your total! I also picked up 2 Dove's Men's Care Antiperspirant. It was advertised at 2/$7, they also rang up as $3. I used 2 $2 off coupons for those. I also picked up 2 Xtra laundry detergents at $1.49 each and used a $1 coupon for them. And received $5 in ECB!
I used $5.99 in ECBs from a previous purchase which brought my total down to $1.00!
Trip Summary states: "Today You Saved 32.43"!
Not bad... huh... Spent $1 to get $5 and took home all these wonderful things!
Pick up these 18 bars of soap for FREE! And no out of pocket expense thanks to Walgreen's faulty computer systems. These were suppose to be on sale for 3 $18, but they rang up at full price. The cashier told me if he did a price adjustment, I would not receive my register rewards. After consulting with his manager, he informed the cashier to sell me the items for $4 each which would have been my final price after register rewards. I applied my $4 off coupons from Today's Red Plum insert and walked out paying only $1.08 and that was sales tax. My subtotal was $0.00. These bars retail for $8.49 at Walgreens.

I took advantage of the $5 off Zyrtec coupon from WalMart's web site. Their price guarantee is real! I went to the WalMart near my job and noticed the 5 cnt, Zyrtec was $5.27, but the store shelves were empty, so I went to the WalMart near my house. The same Zyrtec was $5.97! At first, I though, heck, I'll still get the Zyrtec for .97 after my coupon. But then, "The Millionaire Next Door" book thoughts popped in my head and I decided to get my discount.
When I got to the register, I told the cashier that the WalMart down the street had the Zyrtec for $5.27. She simply scanned the item, overrode the price and let me have them for $5.27 with "NO QUESTIONS ASKED!" Just like the commercials say.
I purchased 2 Zyrtecs at $5.27 each, used 2 $5 off coupons. Total cost: .54 and then ended up paying $.95 in taxes! That's effectively over 100% in sales taxes! I'll be willing to bet you a dime to a donut that at 5.4 cents a pill, the company is still making a hefty profit.

All free and walked away with $9.99 in Extra Care Bucks.
The Zyrtec was on sale for 5.99 and you receive $5.99 in ECB. On top of that, I used a $4.00 off coupon from the 4/10 Redplum insert. CVS paid me $4.00 to take the Zyrtec home with me!
The Shick Hydro 3 was on sale for $8.00. I used the $4 coupon from today's Smart Source insert and CVS gave me $4 in Extra Care Bucks so this item was free also.
My subtotal was $5.99 and I used $6 ECB from a previous shop to pay for this. I wasn't aware CVS would allow this until the cashier told me that he owed me $.01. However, I still had to pay $1.26 in sales taxes.
I broke my transaction up into 3 separate transactions is an attempt to minimize my out of pocket expenses.

1 Nestle Crunch Bar (.39). I had to purchase this item so that I could use more coupons. Walgreens coupon policy states that you cannot use more coupons than items purchased. By making this purchase, I was able to use $4 in register rewards coupon from my Wal-Fex purchase above! So I paid .39 to used a $4 off coupon!
Total: $1.38 (received $4 in RR)
(2) Lysol Bowl cleaner $2.99 (By one get one free coupon from today's insert or pick one up from the store)
Used $1 in Register Rewards. I could only use one because the store coupon for the BOGO counts as a coupon

CVS is running a special this week on their Nestle water. I had a devil of a time trying to find a CVS store in my area that had the water. Many of the stores told me they substituted the water for another brand because the delivery truck didn't bring the water.
The water is on sale for $2.88 (reg$ 4.99)
I used a Nestle coupon for $1 off 2 packages of water, which brought my cost down to $2.38 for each one. This brings the cost down to under .10/bottle.
