Super Savings Saturday

cvsloot.jpgThis week I learned a valuable lesson about carefully following the flyer and comparing it to the stock on the shelves. In my defense, I was shopping at a different CVS that I never visit, but still. I messed up on the Oral B toothbrush deal this week and didn’t realize that I never got my ECBs until I was going over my receipts. I purchased the wrong one. Oh well. I still had a B1G1 coupon and hey – now we’ve got vibrating toothbrushes! LOL… I’ll chalk it up to experience. And I guess on the bright side, I can still get the monthly Oral B deal too if I want. Anyway! Here were my deals for the week:

Total $32.95

Still, I can’t complain. I now have $24.97 to spend at CVS on upcoming sales and there are some good deals in the near future (check out the forums at SlickDeals if you want to get a leg up). I also am really glad I decided to try out the Glade Wisp flameless candle because I really like it! The vanilla smells really good and the flickering light really does look like a candle. Every time I try to light candles in the house, Noah wants to blow them out, so this is perfect. (Plus, no soot!)
