Welcome to an irreverent, not-at-all comprehensive blog about my couponing exploits in Montgomery County, Maryland, with some annoying cats sprinkled about. Try not to step on them; they get ever so cross. Also there may be some law stuff here and there, but not too much, because most law stuff is boring.

My Massive Sunday Haul, 4/7/13


Anyone need any tissues? Perhaps they would make an excellent donation for the teenage boys in foster care I used to represent. That's right. I went there. Edgy humor: That's what you get on this blog.

I was talking about masturbation, btw. Oh, you knew that already? Good. Moving on.

Here's what I picked up today.

CVS:

Bought 2 Physicians Formula Concealer Stick $6.79 each, regular price
Save $6.00
Used 2 $1.00/1 Physicians Formula Product from SS 2/10; SS 3/10 (one was rounded down to $0.58)
And used 1 $4/$12 Any Cosmetic Purchase CVS coupon
Final Price: $4.00 MONEYMAKER (applied to the rest of my transaction)

*I was shocked the $4/$12 coupon actually worked. Perhaps it was also including my Dermasilk purchase? Who knows.*

Bought 1 Brookside Dark Chocolate Trial Size, 0.8 oz $0.67, regular price
Buy 1, Receive $0.67 Extra Bucks, Limit 1
Paid $0.67, Received $0.67 Extra Bucks
Final Price: Free

*Even though this item is regular price, it does not appear as though my 20% CVS coupon took anything off of it. Weird.*

Bought 2 Stride Gum, 14 ct $1.00 each, regularly $1.67 each
Buy 2, Receive $1.00 Extra Bucks, Limit 1
Used 1 $1.00/2 Stride Gum, 14 piece single pack from SS 4/7

Bought 4 Speed Stick or Lady Speed Stick (Excludes Twin Packs) $2.49 each, regularly 3 @ $4.49 each and 1 @ $3.49
Spend $12.00, Receive $6.00 Extra Bucks, Limit 1
Used 1 $1.00/1 Softsoap Body Wash, 12 oz or larger or bar soap from SS 4/7
And used 4 $1.00/1 Men Speed Stick Internet printable coupons (CVSSavingsCentral.com)
And used 1 $2/$10 Deodorant/Oral Care/More CVS coupon that previously printed on receipt
Paid $6.46, Received $6.00 Extra Bucks
Final Price: $0.46 ($0.09 each) for all 5

*Still having newspaper delivery issues since my move, so I only had one SmartSource from this week. Also, the SpeedStick coupons beeped and had to be manually entered.*

Bought 24 Kleenex Regular Tissues, 100 ct; Kleenex with Lotion Tissues, 70 ct; Kleenex Upright Tissues, 60 ct $0.99 each, regularly $1.99 each
Bought 2 All Liquid, 28-33 Loads; All Mighty Pacs, 24 ct $3.99 each, regularly $8.29 each

And used 1 $2.00/2 All Laundry Detergent Liquid, Powder or Mighty Pacs from RP 3/10 (exp 4/21)
Paid $13.74, Received $10.00 Extra Bucks
Final Price: $3.74 for all 26 products (That's like $1.87 for each detergent and all the Kleenex for free!)

*I went to three different stores to pull this off (didn't clean a shelf at any of them), and did each Kleenex coupon in a separate transaction, as CVS coupons tend to beep when you use more than one of the same at once. It was quite tedious.*

The following are regular priced, meaning you can use a 20% CVS coupon on them:
