My CVS Coupon Shopping~Stocking Your Pantry Savings

Posted on 17 May 2011 by noelskitchen

Yesterday, I shared with you the beginning of my coupon adventures and how I started to get organized. After browsing through the ads from Sunday’s paper, I found a little bit of savings at CVS.  Most of you know that CVS now offers Extra Care Rewards to their customers. After checking my ECR on their website, I had $9.50 to work with. It’s not a lot to work with but it’s $9.50 of free items in the store. I had found Wisk Laundry Detergent 50 oz. on sale for $4.99, the ad stated with the manufacturer’s coupon for $1 off the customer pays $3.99. I however, had two $2 off coupons. The $1 coupon was no longer available, so I only pay $2.99 per bottle. Irish Spring Bar Soap and Soft Soap was on sale for $.88 (no limit), along with Arrowhead bottled water 24-case for $2.66. I had to make 2 separate transactions in order for my $2 off Wisk coupons to work. This is my Monday’s coupon savings:

Stocking Your Pantry Savings

First Transaction:

1 bottle Wisk laundry detergent $4.00 ($2 0ff) paid $2.99
4 pkgs of 2-pack Irish Spring bar soap $.88 each
4 bottles of softsoap $.88 each

Total paid for this transaction:$.97 (Used my $9.50 ECR)

Next transaction I purchased 3 24-case arrowhead water $2.66 each (limit 3) and another bottle of Wisk $2.99

Total paid for this transaction$14. 99, receipt said I saved $15.09. Not sure if I should have waited to buy the water, but I don’t see cases of water that cheap. Maybe now that I’m getting into couponing, I’ll see better deals. From my calculations I received a better deal for the case of water at CVS for a total of $7.98. Right now Safeway’s sale on a case of water is 3 for$10.

I am slowly working on stocking my pantry with the everyday items my family uses and goes through so quickly. Please keep in mind that the stores I am visiting are in Northern California so store prices and stores deals will differ. If you are in Northern California, I’d love your input on how using coupons works for you.

Have any coupon savings tips you’d like to share? What are some of your coupon finds for the week?
