I hopped over to CVS to use some soon-to-be-expired Extra Care Bucks (I had $12 worth). I bought:
: CVS pantiliners $0.99 (got $0.99 in ECB back)
: Suave body wash on sale 2 for $4; I bought 2 and used a BOGO coupon and a $0.50 off coupon making those $1.50 total
: Softsoap body wash $5.49 (monthly deal); had $0.75 off coupon and got $2 ECB
: CVS brand jumbo diapers were marked down to 50 percent off ($4.74/pack for size 1). I needed to spend a little more, so I bought one pack.
It was a few cents under $12, but the cashier adjusted my extra care bucks down, so I paid nothing out of pocket, plus I earned $2.99 in ECBs back. I participated in a CVS advisor study this morning and earned $10 ECBs for my time, and I expect those to print on August 1. So no biggie for not having many ECBs to work with at the moment.
Next, I went to Rite Aid. I bought:
: Crest Expressions toothpaste $2.49 (I think) on sale, and will get $2.49 in rebate. I had a $0.50 off coupon as well.
: Electrasol tabs on sale for $2.99. Had a $1.50 coupon and will earn $2 in rebates, earning me $0.50 after rebate.
: Luvs mega diapers are on sale for $9.99 this week (originally $14.99). I had a $5 off coupon, and I bought a pack of size 1s for $5. Diapers for less than $0.06 each is a pretty good deal I think.
Total out of pocket was $8.47 and I’ll get $4.49 in rebates from it, making it a net of $3.98.
So far, I have 142 size one diapers and paid $5 for all of them, making them $0.035 per diaper for my stash. Not too bad.
