I can't stay away. Not when there's discount candy to be had.

"My" CVS only had their Valentine's Day candy for half off. Hmph. Well, I guess I can't complain...I still got it free.

Here's how today's transaction went:
  • Two $2.99 Colgate Total, get $2.99 ECB each
  • Two $3.50 clearanced Mylanta, get $3 ECB each
  • Two $4.99 J&J First aid 5-ct boxes, get $3 ECB each
  • $2.49 (!!!!) box of small envelopes
  • $4.99 box of chocolates
  • $0.88 Pixie Stix filler

Sub-total = $31.32. Used these coupons:

  • $5 off $30 purchase (thank you, machine!)
  • Two $1 Colgate MQ
  • Two $2 Mylanta MQ (printed from Mylanta website)
  • Two $2 J&J MQ (peelies)

Sub-total = $16.32. Paid with a $6 ECB, a $9.98 ECB, and put $1.30 on my gift card. Got back $17.98 in ECBs, making a profit of $0.70. ($17.98 ECBs earned - $15.98 ECBs spent - $1.30 cash spent) Not bad!

Lance had requested the envelopes. Can you believe they were $2.49?? Crazy! But, hey...It's something we needed. And I have to spend my ECBs on something eventually. It's still rough to pay so much for simple envelopes.

Hope everyone had a good Monday!
