CVS on a Ten Dollar Budget

Today I didn't do too well. I used two cards, mine and my husbands. I hate doing it, it's just too confusing. (I have to blame my bad week on something) It's easier if he's with me to buy his own stuff. Some weeks I do great and others I do OK, guess that's how it goes. Hey, but this week I think I'll try Walgreens. I'll let you know how I do. Who knows I may add Walgreens on a Ten Dollar Budget.

T#2: Used $4/$20 Beauty coupon... 6 Tresemme styling products $20 minus 6 $1 coupons, used $8.88ECb, paid $1.62 OOP, earned $10ECB

T#3: Used $5/$25 coupon (scanned card)... 2 Aveeno baby sunscreens $9 and 1 Aveeno lotion $7 minus 3 $2 coupons, used $10ECB, paid $4.70OOP, earned $10ECB

I didn't do so well at Walgreens, since they were COMPLETELY out of all the items I went to get.
