This week seems to be all about CVS.  Sorry Walgreens, I might show you a little love, but my focus will be just down the street.


**3 day only sale (Sun-Tues)**

CVS filler paper – $.99, get $.99 EB (limit 2)

Papermate Pens – $.99, get $.99 EB (limit 2)

Recycled Pencil Boxes – $1.99, get $1.99 EB (limit 2)

Mini-composition Notebook (80 pages) – $1.99, get $1.99 EB (limit 2)

Phillips Headphones – $6.99, get $6.99 EB (limit 1)

Ladies Fleece Robes – $5.  These would be GREAT to snatch up now & save back for Christmas, Mother’s Day, or any ladies’ birthdays that you have coming up.  Often times you can make a nice spa gift basket out of completely free (or super cheap) items 🙂

Regular Sales

$2 EB when you buy 2 Johnson & Johnson Band-Aid or Red Cross items (limit 5).  This includes the $1 travel sized emergency kits.  The $1 coupon in the 5-17 RP or the 8-2 SS would make these free!  Buy 10 kits, use 10 coupons, and have a $10 money maker.  These kits are PERFECT for donating if you are making school supply backpacks.  That’s where mine are going!

$5 EB when you buy $15 worth of 5-Star notebooks/binders.  There are printable coupons here for $2 off the binders.

Buy a backpack, get a free lunchbox.  Prices for backpacks start at $7.99 (the Character ones are $9.99)

Loreal Deep Set Wrinkle cream $14.99 + Revitalift cleanser $5.99.  Get $10 EB when you buy both (limit 2).  Get a $5 printable for the Deep Wrinkle here, and you can find a $1 coupon for the cleanser in the 8-2 RP.  If you ask about the Ready Fill program at the Pharmacy, you can get a coupon booklet – one of the coupons is for $4/$20 skin care purchase.  Combine this with the other two coupons, and get these items for $.98 after the coupons & EB!!  This would be a great item to put in that spa basket mentioned above.  Also, you can get a free makeup case by submitting your receipts for the Loreal.  Want to know how?  Just check out the details here (basically you just need to submit your receipts & wait for it to come in the mail).

$1 EB when you buy Colgate Max Fresh/Max White.  Lots of stores have this on clearance for $.82, so look for the clearance tubes & have an instant freebie!  Use the $1 printable here (zip code 43537) to make this a money maker!

$5 EB when you buy a $25 AMC giftcard.

Kleenex 3-pack $2.47.  Use the $.50 coupon in the 7-12 or the 8-2 SS to get these for $.66/box.

Revlon & Maybelline makeup – BOGO.  Remember that you can use two coupons on BOGO sales – one per item.  This increases your savings even more.

CVS brand paper towels (like Bounty – these are good) $7.99, get $2 EB back.

Garnier Nutrisse hair color $5.  Get $5 EB when you buy $15 worth.  There will be $2 coupons in the 8-16 RP.  Buy 3 hair colors ($15), use 3 coupons (-$6), and get $5 EB back, for a net cost of $4 for 3 boxes of hair color.  Even if you dont need this, consider buying it to donate, especially to a women’s shelter.  Items like this are greatly appreciated, but seldom donated because most people just dont remember to get these things too.  Ditto for the makeup.


Softsoap Nutriserums body wash $3.99, get $3.99 Register Reward back.

Keep an eye out for Quilted Northern Ultra Plush 6 double-roll packs.  They are being clearanced out, but not always marked on the shelf.  Ask for a price check if you can find them – the are reportedly on clearance for as low as $1.39/pack.  If you find some, stock up 🙂

Enjoy shopping this week.  Dont forget to take your reusable bags with you.  As always, these deals come from the lovely people over at AFC, and some just from my own brains.  Let us know what you got this week!
