Sorry...no picture to go with this one. I just saved what I think is a significant amount of money and thought that I would share it with all of you. There are a gazillion websites out there for couponing and I am sure that most of you are already aware. And frankly some of them take way to long to navigate through and require much higher level thinking than a mom with a 17 month old can provide on a lunch break at work. I have a deal for you that requires ZERO coupon clipping. Did you hear me??? ZERO Coupon Clipping for a great deal.
At CVS....you get $15 extra care bucks for every $20 in Duracell Batteries that you buy. Since Christmas is right around the corner and just about every kids toy requires batteries, I needed to stock up.
So, I go to check out at the register with my batteries and the clerk says I have (2) $5.00 off coupons for your batteries today. So I bought $30 worth of batteries for $20.00 (applying the $10.00 in coupons from the clerk) and received $15.00 in Extra Care Bucks upon check out.
Here is the Diaper part....
The CVS brand of Diapers was on sale "buy 1 get 1 50% off." Sooooo....I bought 3 packages of 40 diapers each and one package of "training pants" for Aida. After the sale I was able to apply my $15.00 in savings plus another $2.00 in Extra Care bucks I received from buying Children's Advil, and there you have it. I bought $38.96 worth of diapers before tax for $12.46 or 68% off.
To top it all off...CVS is running a promotion right now where they will email you a coupon for $4.00 in ECB if you fill out your email address. So, I now have an additional $4.00 in store credit coming.
So killing two birds with one stone....batteries and Diapers, all at CVS, no coupon clipping required.
This made me so excited I wanted to share with all of you. Now go stock up and save lots of money.

This year was Aida's first time to really experience Halloween. Last year we dressed her up like a pumpkin but she was 6 months old and too little to enjoy it. This year was so much fun. Every time Aida took a bite of her candy with the wrappers on of course she would say "mmmm." You could just tell she totally enjoyed it. Grandma and Pops Alford came to visit and had so much fun with Aida. They took her from house to house for trick or treating. Aida really enjoyed visiting both our neighbors houses, every time kids would head up to the front door she would run over and head up too. I think she visited our neighbors 3 or 4 times that night. She really enjoyed just being in her costume (thank you Andrea!) and being the cutest lady bug in the neighborhood.
All dressed up in my lady bug costume...
