More Shopping Deals (6-13-2008)

After dinner Friday night we packed the boys up and went to CVS for some shopping. I had a game plan and a slew of coupons. When we arrived they did not have some of the cereal that we had planned on buying. We toyed with some options and eventually figured out ones that we all like and will use. The boys wandered around with me and JL held the coupons as I planned my attack. I had thought about buying the Dove face SkinVitalizer. It was on sale for $9.99 and I had a $3.50 coupon, the $3/15 CVS coupon,  plus it qualified for the $10 Dove purchase for $3 ECBs. It would have been a great deal, but the refills are quite pricey and it may bother my really sensitive skin, so I opted to pass on the deal.

I also wanted to try the new Dove Frizz Control shampoo and conditioner. They were BOGO this week, plus I had $2/1 coupons to use! That made them 50 cents each! Worth a shot at that price. Everything else were fillers that we needed or had coupons for and would use to get to the $15 to use the $3/15 CVS coupons.
