So happy to make my first big coupon purchase! I always found it hard to imagine walking out of a store with so much product and so little money actually spent. If you are a beginner like me you will find it is how you look at it. So I will break it down in the way I purchased it. I made 3 separate transactions. Keep in mind I had $10 CVS Bucks to begin with from a previous purchase.

I know it seems confusing (even to me!) but hopefully it will help some. Trust me I spent hoards of time reading through posts trying to understand before I went today! I was inspired by the CVS deal that was posed by KCL but since I didn’t use some of the products there I opted to buy what we normally use in my household.
If you go by what I listed above, the products come out to be as follows after all my coupons, CVS Bucks, Ibotta rebates & Current Sales Price:
Persil Laundry Detergent: $1.34
Colgate Toothpaste: $0.99
ZzzQuil: $5.48 (for both) or $2.74 each
Speed Stick Deodorant: $0.00 (EACH FREE!) 😃
Schick Quattro Razor: +$0.21 Money Maker 😃
Total for all receipts + taxes combined = $2.93!
There is no way you can go wrong with savings like this! Definitely worth my time to find the coupons, clip the coupons, and learn how to correctly use them! Hope this helps you!
