Super Savings Saturday

Well it's that time again! Crystal over at MoneySavingMom.com hosts Super Savings Saturday every week and every week you can check out her site and others for some AMAZING tips on how to get the things you need for little or no money at all!

Like chocolate and jelly beans, for instance. Who doesn't need that? *hangs head in shame*
Now, to be fair to myself, the jelly beans were for the Easter eggs I stuffed for our family Easter Egg hunt and the box of chocolate I took to share with my MOMS group at church.

So nanny-nanny-foo-foo!

On with the more mature aspects of the post, shall we? Okay. What I have in the pic above is $55.29 worth of product. I have a hard time believing that myself! Since I've been doing the deals at CVS it's hard for me to imagine someone paying 55 bucks for that small assortment but back in the day that would've been me. Thank you, Crystal, for showing me the light!

I ended up paying $15.94 OOP for the above and received $24.95 in ECB's back! That's a profit of $9.01! Can I get a WooHoo?!

Items I got for free:

-The Hershey's Pot of Gold chocolate
-The Maybelline Lip Color
-The Jelly Beans
-The Vitamine C
-The Speed Stick
-And one of the Dove Hair products

Not bad for 45 minutes of work!

Also, a couple weeks ago I got a coupon with my receipt for a $25 CVS giftcard for any new prescription. Well, lo and behold, the kids got sick with ear infections and I ended up with a prescription for antibiotics. I now have a $25 CVS giftcard tucked safely in my wallet. Though, I have to be honest, I would have rather had healthy kids! The little sickies have a tendency to keep my up at night when they are not feeling so well. Poor babies. But everyone is well now, praise the Lord!

I hope the rest of you CVS'ers had a profitable week and for those of you who have yet to try it out, please check out MoneySavingMom.com and click on her "CVS 101" link. You won't be sorry!
