My $5 CVS Charity Challenge

I am SO excited to be able to do this week's $5 CVS challenge. I had to skip last week due to lack of time and matching coupons, but this week could prove to be very fruitful.

Transaction #1
Buy 1 Kotex 16ct: $1.49
Buy 1 Zipfizz Energy Drink: $5.99
Buy 2 Colgate Advanced ($2.79 each): $5.58
Subtotal: $13.06
B1G1 Free Colgate CVS promotion (-$2.79)
Use $2/$10 CVS coupon (-$2.00)
Use $1/1 Kotex coupon (-$1.00)
Use 2 $1.50/1 Colgate coupon (-$3.00)
Grand Total: $4.27
ECBs returned: $1.49 (Kotex) + $5.99 (Zipfizz) = $7.48

Transaction #2
Buy 1 Zipfizz Energy Drink: $5.99
Buy 1 Playtex Gentle Glide: $4.99
Subtotal: $10.98
Use $2/$10 CVS coupon (-$2.00)
Use $1/1 Playtex coupon from sample (-$1.00)
Grand Total: $7.98 (use $1.49 ECB + 5.99 ECB from transaction 1, pay $0.50 OOP)
ECBs returned: $5.99 (Zipfizz) + $3.00 (Playtex) = $8.99

Merchandise total: $24.04
Total OOP: $4.77
ECBs left for next time: $8.99

I will again be making a donation to the USO on base. I also have some samples and other items that I've cleared out from my stockpile that I will be taking along with this week's CVS purchases.

The Coupon Coup is having a giveaway until Friday for a coupon binder with an uncut August issue of All You, so hop on over and check 'em out. Amongst other great coupons, the August issue of All You contained the $1/1 Kotex coupon. I love All You, and it definately work the two dollars or so, simply because I normally save two bucks from just one coupon!
