CVS 3 Day Sale

Happy Thanksgiving and early Merry Christmas to me!! I LOVE CVS!! Well, if you haven't done these deals, good luck finding the product. Cuz when we got there a little after 11 pm there were already several people there. They were already out of a few items, but lucky for me and Ana they had the items at the store on Crabb River rd. (woohoo!!)

I had such a great time, it was just so exciting getting all this stuff not only for free but to be PAID to take it. I mean how can you not love that. Plus everything went really well except for me going into the negative and having to find something to add on hence my 5 choc. bars. Hmmm, what will I do with them?

For those of you who haven't done these deals my advice is to go to a non 24 hr store atleast 30 mins before opening. I know you don't want to drive but these deals are worth it! And you know what they say you snooze you lose. I'm also excited cuz I spent no money OOP it came off my GC plus even then it still wasn't alot. On to the good stuff here's my load (that I have no idea where I'm going to put):
CVS Thanksgiving
If you don't see Christmas gifts in this pic, you should.

Merchandise total: $198.09
Total Q's used: $47
ECBs used: $138.98
OOP (on GC):$5.19
ECBs Earned: $187.65
Profit: $43.48

I could still get some more Bic and the Quattro and just may go back out in the morning.

Dessert to Die For!

Ok, so if any of you remember that absoulutely devine dessert I made for the anniversary dinner; you'll want to keep reading. I don't like baked fruit makes me gag if you must know. However I had a piece of this and it is really good! OMG! We're talking eyes rolling to the back of your head, toes curling and strange sounds coming from your lips, yes it's that good! Ok, I'll stop. Now, several ladies asked me for the recipe and I being true to form keep forgetting. So, the next best thing is to post it here of course. Make this for Thanksgiving your family will love you! And here it is what you've all been waiting for, the recipe:

Butterscotch-Apple Cake
adapted from Taste of the South by Noble Pig

1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups finely chopped, peeled apples
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup butterscotch morsels
Garnish: caramel sauce and whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350 degreesIn a large mixing bowl, mix together oil and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon; beat well. Stir in vanilla, apples and pecans. (Mixture will be thick).

Spread mixture evenly in a greased 9 x 13 -inch baking pan. Sprinkle butterscotch chips over top. Bake for 55 minutes.

Cool completely in pan. Garnish each serving th caramel sauce and whipped cream.

If you make this let me know how it goes over. I'd love to hear from you.

Profit: $10.26

Let's see what all went wrong with this trasaction? First it wouldn't take my ECB, hence the candy. cashier would not push it through & the lady behind me was UP-SET with him about it. I had to tell him to void it so he could check her out & then we'd try the ECB first (ok 2nd after my $10/50). Well, that didn't work and guess what he pushed it through, ugghhh!! Then (yeah, there's more) I look at my receipt only to see that some of my ECBs did not print. So, I tell him he takes my product goes examines the shelves to make sure it's the right stuff then says he can't help me and calls someone else. Oy! She gives me the third degree but finally turns to the register scans my receipt pushes some buttons and prints my ECBs. I would of been impressed if I hadn't been so tired, instead it was just like; ehh! Ya know?

So, this means now they can print your ECBs on the spot if they don't print (not all stores) and for rain checks. That about sums up my trip, oh no there's one more thing. When my deo was being examined she did not put it back in the bag, which is why you only see two in the pic. Yep, had to call and let them know then go pick it up, and since I was there I let the manager know about his RUDE unfriendly cashier. He assured me he would take care of it and now I'm off to bed as Haley has finally passed out!

Only 1 insert this week

I was wondering why I didn't have a RedPlum in the mail this week. Well, it turns out there won't be one, boo hoo! That means in the paper there will only be a SmartSource insert. Go here to see a list of the Qs in it, this way you can decide if and how many papers you want to buy. Also remember no inserts next weekend due to the holiday.

CVS Week of Nov. 16-22

Hmm, I was so sure I took a pic of my first deal: all my batteries, Loreal, Zantrex, Soft & Dri and the Glade glass scents. I'm guessing it got deleted. Oh, well here are the other deals I did:

$13.98 2 Glade Nightlight PlugIns
$7.98 2 Glade PlugIn Refills
$2.99 1 Glade Scented Oil PlugIn
$1.67 Vitamin Water
$0.99 Big Red
$1.19 Hand Sanitizer
-$13.98 B1G1 Q x2
-$4.99 Try Free Q (she gave me the max. value)
-$8.90 ECB
Earned $10 in ECBs

On this one I could not figure out how my total was not high enough to use my ECBs will it was becuz one I figured the total wrong plus on my FREE Q she put in the max. value of $4.99 instead of the cost of $2.99! This is why I had to add on the other items! Then when it still wouldn't take my ECB she pushed it through but entered 0.90 instead of $9, she then put in $8.90 instead of $8.10! So, I made out really good. Spent $9 in ECBs and .02 cash but made $10 in ECBs!!

CVS 11-19
Transaction 1:

I knew something was off here and I wasn't paying attention cuz Haley was crying. Once I went over my receipt I realized he had taken off $2.99 instead of $5.49. He said he could only give me $3.49 cuz I'd used a $2 Q, I said this was fine but he gave me the full $5.49. He should have only given me $2.50. If he had done it right my OOP would of been $0.48 but due to the mistake it wound up being $.00 plus I got $2.26 cash on top of my ECBs!

$10.98 2 Glade scented oil candles
$7.99 Glade fan PlugIn

$4.99 Calculator
-$5.49 B1G1 Q
-$2 Glade scented oil Q
-$7.99 B1G1 Q

On this one I could of gotten a cheaper filler (wanted to use my $10 ECB) but I really needed a new calculator since I lost mine. I am so sad about this cuz it was a really nice one. (tear) Yes, I know I could of gotten one for cheaper than $2.47 but if I didn't buy it then I would of kept putting it off! I'm weird like that.

CVS Glade Deals

CVS has a Glade deal this week buy $10 worth and get $5 in ECBs. There are quite a few ways to do this deal and still come out on top. Remember this is a cumulative deal meaning if you do one transaction and your total cost is $12.78 the $2.78 carries over to meet your next $10 purchase. Also the limit is 5 just mix and match according to product available plus the amount of ECBs you have to spend (this is where a calculator comes in handy or your cellphone). Another thing to keep in mind is how big of an ECB do you want if you did the limit of 5 in one transaction you'd wind up with a $25 ECB and these can be harder to spend. Now, on to the deals:

2 Glade scented oil candle holders @ $6.39=$12.78

Before any of you go searching in our local area let me just tell you not to even waste your time! However, if you pass a Houston store stop and look you'll need 3 as the limit is 3. Remember to share the wealth (meaning grab some for yo sistas)!

Kroger Mega Saver Event Trip 2 & 3

Kroger 11/06

Okay, on Thurs. I went back to Kroger to get my money back on the items that rang up wrong on the previous purchase and since I was there I went ahead and did another transaction. I got another 30 items (pic is missing sugar and a Vitamin water) for a grand total of $14.58!

Then on Friday I went with a friend to another Kroger that has a much friendlier coupon policy. I'm now jealous of those of you who have a Kroger nearby like this. Back to the issue, here's what I got:
Kroger 11/07
On this transaction I only did 20 items for the Mega Event, however my total items was 26 for a grand total of: $8.16. I'm upset that one of my loadable coupons didn't come off costing me $1.29. Hey, you'd be surprised with what I could do with $1.29? Ok, ok and some coupons.

CVS Deal Plan

Looks like I'm off to a few CVS in hopes of finding the Crest toothpaste and using my $5/$25 Q. My deals will look like this:

2 Pampers $20
2 Crest $6.98
Subtotal: $26.98
Pampers $3
Crest $2
ECBs $10
TOTAL: $6.98
ECBs Earned: $11.98

So, that makes my pampers $5 works for me! Now if I find the trial Crest strips I plan to do this:

4 Crest strips $23.96
2 Crest $6.98
Subtotal: $30.94
4 Crest strips $28.00
2 Crest $2.00
TOTAL: $.94
ECBs Earned $6.98
Profit $6.04

Now if they have 2 Ice breakers and enough candy for the deal than along with my $5/$25 Qs and overage I'd pay $3 OOP for the candy and after ECBs I'd still have a profit of $1.06. Woohoo!! Ok, I'm off to shop.


Of course they were out of stuff so I had to change my plan. Here's what I got:
Subtotal: $29.99
Q's Used: $11.00
ECBs Used: $12
Total OOP: $6.99+tax
ECBs w/purchase: $7.00
Total cost after ECBs: $11.99

Pretty good price on the diapers when you figure in the pantene was $4.99/3 making the Pampers $3.50 ea. I know I didn't get any ECBs back but since they helped to buy diapers I'm ok with it. This deal wasn't as good as the one I had planned but still not bad. If I've learned anything it's to be prepared to have to change you scenario cuz more than likely they will be out of something.

Kroger Mega Saver Event

Kroger 11-6

Well, today's trip went pretty good. I did have to make a few adjustments to my list cuz I couldn't find the Scotch lint rollers and they were out of the BIC Razors. So, I bought 2 Vitamin water, 2 Shout and a Pledge to meet my 30 items. I did have a problem with the Dial hand soap, the one I had wasn't attached to the sale? Got a different scent and all was well. The best thing about this trip: Haley was not a total monster Good! Atleast right up until check out, which really is all a mom can ask for.

On to the good stuff I got all of the above (33 items) for $15.37. I did have a $5 credit on my account from some ESQ's that didn't work so total before that is $20.37. I'm looking at my receipt and see that two items rang up wrong so I will be going back to get my money and thereby geting them for free! That's $2.48 in my pocket. Ya gotta love it!

'08 Election

Today will go down in History as the day the American people voted in the first African American president! We've come a long way and for this I am proud! I wish I could say I'm happy but I'm not. I knew deep down that Obama would win, and now it's time to suck it up and support him, I guess. Ok, well when he's Prez which means I have time to get used to it. Right? LOL!
