$5.00 CVS Challenge - Weeks 5 & 6

My week 5 had nothing good available for our family either by using coupons or obtaining Extra Bucks so I avoided the store completely.

I guess I missed the store all week and that is why week 6 started off with 2 trips!!

All of the items above would have cost a total of $39.21 with no sales, coupons or Extra Bucks, but I paid $6.48 - a savings of $32.73. Plus I earned $3.00 in Extra Bucks to use on my next trip (which was 2 miles up the road).

All of the above items would have cost $35.15 without sales, coupons and Extra Bucks. I spent a total of $9.47 out of pocket which is a savings of $25.68. Plus I earned an additional $3.00 in Extra Bucks.
Total value of merchandise purchased today - $74.36 , by only spending - $15.95 ($58.41 saved/79%).

***As a side note that I learned through viewing the $5.00 CVS Challenge entries - I laid out $2.00 to buy the 4 bottles of Dry Idea Deodarant (a product that I normally do not use) but I had obtained $4.00 in Extra Bucks, so I earned $2.00 for buying it.
