My Great Shopping Trip!

These are the items I got today, visiting two stores, Walmart and CVS.
Here's a rundown on the numbers.
CVS:  Starting with 6 and 2 ECBs, plus a 2.50 ECB from the machine when I walked in this afternoon!
  John Frieda and Biore- Buy $15, get $5 ECB.
    Biore wash $6 - used Buy pore strips, get wash free Q.
    Biore pore strips $6
    John Frieda hair product $5 - used $2.50 Q.
           = $5
  Puffs Plus $.99 - used $1 Q from VocalPoint, they adjusted to $.99.
            = FREE
  Dove Shampoo $4.49, get $4.49 ECB
      used $1.50 Q
             =  FREE with $1.50 overage.
TOTAL OOP at CVS = $1.07, paid in change from my coin purse!  Took home 5 and 4.49 ECBs!
                  Savings at CVS $27.96.

Walmart:
   2 Benedryl Itch Sticks $2.28 each - used $5 off 2 Bendryl products from last Sunday's paper.
   Planters peanuts as filler $.48
TOTAL OOP at Walmart = $.04!!!  The cashier looked shocked, and even checked the coupon, almost like she might try that little trick! haha. Love it!
The cashier at CVS and I had a great conversation about teaching our children the value of saving money this way.  She seemed impressed that my children will know from a young age how to be good stewards of what God has blessed us with. Praise the Lord!
