In the mail last week I got the October P&G coupon booklet. This is the first time I have ever got one of these in the mail. I usually just get them in the newspaper like everyone else. Well the wonderful thing about getting one in the mail is that I finally got CoverGirl coupons. Every time we get a P&G in our area, there are no CoverGirl coupons, just an ad. Which was just plain annoying. While lots of CVS'ers were getting free CoverGirl wetslicks at CVS with the deals and the coupons they got, we were left to looking for other things to get because no CG coupons.

So this P&G had a coupon for $1.00 off any CG product and a buy 1 CG foundation get a CG makeup product free. And when I got the regular P&G in the newspaper, of course it had no CG coupons in it. So I thought of these two like finding gold.

Turns out it was a good week to use them, so holding onto them didn't last me long. The bad part of coupons is that we do not have a printer at home. We could just buy a cheapy printer that would do me just fine. But my husband is a tech junkie and refuses to buy just a cheap one. He wants a wireless fancy one, and I am just not willing to part with the money right now. Scotch is having a good ECB sale at CVS and I can always use the lint removers. I only had 3 of the $1.00 off coupons for the lint rollers left, so I couldn't do the whole deal in one shot. I have to wait until I get to work tomorrow to print off the rest of the lint coupons so I can finish that deal. But still not a bad purchase.

1 CoverGirl foundation $5.49
1 CoverGirl compact $5.79
2 Scotch Lint Rollers $5.00
1 Birthday card $2.29 (brothers birthday on Tuesday)

Total $18.57

(1) $1.00 off any CG product
(1) Buy CG foundation get CG face product free
(2) $1.00 off Scotch lint rollers
(1) $2.00 off any purchase of $10.00 at CVS

ECB's used $5.99
Total oop $2.45
ECB's earned $5.79

Of course my oop would have been lower if I didn't get the birthday card. But I had to, its family. And I didn't have any smaller ECB's that would have made up for it. I have to go back and get 4 more of the Scotch rollers to finish up the Scotch deal and earn my 5 ECB's for that. But I think that will then be it for me this week with CVS, not as many good deals as last week.
