It’s been a while since I made a CVS run and when I discovered that I accidentally let $3.00 in ECBs expire, I wanted to make sure I spent the rest of my ECBs which expire in a couple days. That’s money earned! I was so angry that I let some go to waste. But live and learn, right? I did OK, I guess, but I’m sure with a little more time and effort I could have done better. The cotton balls were a mistake. I thought they were buy one/get one half off, but the sign must have been referring to something else. Oh well. I needed them anyway. I also could have taken advantage of the other candy deal in order to get $5 in ECBs, but the Mini Eggs are just so much better! (Of course, when I got the new flyer last week and saw that they will be on sale for 99 cents instead of the $1.88 I paid again I could have kicked myself. Still, the price I paid was a bargain compared to the price at Stop & Shop.) So… I ended up getting 2 bags of cotton balls, 3 bags of Cadbury Mini Eggs (for the boys’ Easter baskets), 2 cans of cashews (a treat for Drew), 1 bottle of hand soap, 1 bottle of shower gel, 1 deodorant (with bonus travel size!), and a card for $4.25 out of pocket. That’s still pretty darn good — probably the regular price of one container of cashews! I got back $2 in ECBs.
