Coupon Breakdown of My CVS Shopping Trip

What do you do for your “me” time?  Well, for me ~ other than painting my toenails (fun, guilty pleasure)…I love to go couponing kid-free!  Not always possible (to go alone) , but I feel like I can destress, recharge and save my family money all at the same time.
I did just that last night (02/11) at CVS.  This sale I am going to break down for you is still valid if you want to take advantage of it this week.  If you’re reading this post after 02/16, then the sale is most likely over but that does not mean this post won’t help you understand how matching sales and coupons can save you money!

Before I share my shopping scenario with you, please keep in mind that you may not have the coupons I used.  But you can definitely save the minimum and earn ECB’s (extracare bucks) by signing up for an Extracare Card from CVS. (it’s FREE) 
You also may not want or need the items I do for my household.
