CVS Trip #2

I stopped by CVS this evening to take advantage of the sales for the week before they ended and items were unavailable. I got two more Revitalift Face Wash Cloths and two Dove Deodarants, I made out very well money wise.

2 Revitalift Face Wash's $5.99 x 2 = 11.98 - 3.oo M.C. = $8.98
2 Dove Deodarants $2.29 x 2 = 4.58 - $1.50 M.C. = 3.08 (1.54 each)

- $10.00 ECB
= $2.06 OOP

$8.98 -$10.00 ECB = $1.02 earned on 2 Revitalift Face Wash
$3.08 - $2.00 ECB = $1.08 for 2 Dove Deodarants (.54 for each)

ECB Earned :
$10.00 - 2 Revitalift's
$2.00 - 2 Dove Deodarants
Total $12.00

Total ECB after today's trip and 1st trip: $19.49

February Stitching Goals

After looking back on how I did in January lets look ahead and see where I want to be at the end of the month.

1. Start my Seasonal R.R. to be mailed at the end of the month.

2. Participate in the February Stitch A Thon.

3. Finish Seasonal R.R. from 2005.

4. Finish up page 2 of Circles.

5. Complete 1 santa from Old World Santas.

28 days and a lot to get done, see you at the end of the month with an update.

January Stitching Wrap Up

Here is a refresher and update on what I wanted to accomplish stitching wise in January.
1. Complete half of a page for Cirque des Circles. There are six pages total and my goal is to complete half a page each month to complete this piece in one year.
I almost completed a half a page but I was short. I hope to do more next month to catch up.

2. Complete Colonial Houses

3. Complete one santa from Old World Santas I
I didn't even come close and only managed a few stitches, I didn't even take a picture because of how much I didn't get done.

4. Participate in January Stitch A Thon
Yes I was able to stitch 16 hours and get a lot done on Easter Fairy.

CVS Deals 2/1/09

I went by CVS today to grab some great deals before they ran out of items. I normally don't do the CVS game but I just couldn't pass up the deals this week and I think I did pretty well, let me break it down for you.

6 Reese's Minature Peanut Butter Cups 2 @ $3.00 = $9.00 minus 3 $2 off 2 coupons = $3.00 for six which breaks down to .50 each!

1 Bounty Basic 8 Roll $5.99

1 Tylenol Arthitis 20ct $2.99 - $1.00 = $1.99

2 Lorel Revitalift Face Wash $5.99 each = $11.98 - $3.00 off 2 = 8.98

4 Progresso Soups B1G1 Free $3.19 x 2 = $6.38 -$2.00 off 4 = 4.38 for four which breaks dow to $1.10 each

1 Excedrin 10ct. $2.49

1 Curel National Healing Lotion $7.99 - $1.00 = $6.99

1 Jergen's National Renewal $7.99 - $3.00 = $4.99

Extra Care Bucks Earned
$10.00 for buying Loreal Revitalift = $1.02 earned
$5.00 for buying Curel and Jergens Lotion = $4.49 Curel and $2.49 Jergen's
$2.49 for buying Excedrin 10 ct. = Free

Plus I recieved a $4.00 off $20 purchase that I will recieve once I turn in a e-mail update the next time I stop by and give it to the cashier. I will get that coupon in 3 weeks from the time I turn it in. They are having some good deals through the month of February so I am going to use my ECB that I got today on items I will use that I can earn ECB on and see how much I can get without spending another penny.
