My poor husband, we had the opportunity for a date night...and what did we do? Well, he had no better suggestions! :o) We were going to go to a movie but when you haven't been to the movies in over a year, welllll over a year, you want to see something GOOD...and nothing was meeting my standards at least, so we opted to go another time. We did have a nice quiet dinner though, and as usual the kids had a blast at grandma's and didn't even notice we were gone.


  • 2 Tylenol Cold - $6/ea. Used $3/2 coupon.
  • 2 Children's Tylenol - $6/ea. Used $3/2 coupon.
  • 1 Colgate 360 toothbrush - $2.99, used a $1 coupon
  • 1 Revlon nail polish - $3.99, used a $1 coupon
  • 2 M&Ms - .89 for both (they were B1G1)

I used a $2.50 off $10 in pain relievers store coupon, and a $5 off $30 store coupon, and $14 in ECBs. I paid $2.37 out of my own pocket. I earned $3 for the nail polish, $2 for the toothbrush, and $10 for the Tylenol products, so I at least got back $1 more in ECBs than I spent.

The Tylenol was an awesome deal since I was paying with (mostly) ECBs... $24 - $6 in coupons - $2.50 store coupon - $5 store coupon = $10.50...and I got back a $10 ECB, so since I paid with ECBs it really only cost me .50, for all four! Awesome. The toothbrush and the nailpolish were completely free, so really I only paid for the M&Ms and .50 + tax for the Tylenol. I would have had to pay less but I handed over my ECBs in the wrong order and the last I had was for $4, not worth it to have it adjusted down. Whaaaatever, haha :o)

Rite Aid:

I had a $5 off $20 store coupon and a $5 off $20 in My Little Pony merchandise coupon, so I wanted to see if they even carried them in there. I ended up grabbing the last 2 ponies they had on the shelf at $8.99 each (Ugh! That's so expensive!) and then I saw a coloring book priced at $2.99. That brought my total to $20.97, used both $5 coupons that took it down to $10.97, and I had a gift card that had $8.84 left on it, so I used that. Paid $2.79 for the lot...I only went ahead with this one since I had $10 off in coupons and a gift card to use up. I am nearly done Christmas shopping ;o)


Three separate transactions...
  • 1 Glade candle - $2.50. Used a $2 store coupon...paid .65
  • 1 Disney Princess doll - $5.49. Used a $2 store coupon...paid $3.82 (they cost $3.99 at Toys R Us, so this was just a bit less, and what I paid does include the tax)
  • 1 Disney Princess doll - $5.49. Used a $5 store coupon, and paid .52!

So basically, I paid $4.99 for everything there, and that's less than one of the dolls there so not bad. I put the dolls away for Christmas.
