This week I decided to participate in the CVS $5 Challenge, hosted by Alyssa at Kingdom First Mom.com. The challenge is to come up with a scenario to purchase items you need at CVS with a budget of $5.00 out of pocket.
Crest Pro-Health Toothpaste $3.49
Use .50 off coupon from the 3/15 P&G insert - or $1.00 any crest toothpaste from Publix
$2.99 (or $2.49) Out of pocket
Receive $3.49 in ECB's
Schick Intuition Razor - $8.99
Use $4.00 off coupon from 3/22 Smartsource
Use $3.49 in ECB's from transaction #1
Pay $1.50 Out of Pocket
Receive $3.00 ECB's for next week!
Total out of pocket is $4.49 for $12.48 in products. - I have to give Alyssa credit for this scenario - its the best one this week for newbies.
