Shopping Scenario Sunday, 04/20/08

It's SUNDAY! Time to praise, time to relax, and time to scour the weekly ads for the best deals out there!

Let's all join together, Frugal Faithful, and share our best, most hopeful shopping scenarios for the week!

New to Shopping Scenario Sunday? Check out the rules here.

My CVS Scenario, 4/20-4/26:

Buy (2) SoftSoap Spa Radiant, $4.99 ea

*use (2) $1.50/1 coupons (not sure which Sunday insert)

Buy (1) Speed Stick 24/7 for Men, $3.99

*use (1) $1.00/1 coupon (RP, 3/30)

Buy (2) Gallons Milk, $3.29 ea

Total cost after coupons: $16.55 + tax

ECBs to use: $14.99

OOP cash paid: $1.56 + tax

New ECBs earned: $13.97 ($4.99 on each SoftSoap; $3.99 on 24/7)

While I'll lose about $1.00 in ECBs on this transaction, I'll still come out ahead with new ECBs for next week, some great stockpile items (we all like to be clean and smell good, right?), and (2) gallons of milk for only $1.56 + tax oop cash.

There are still lots of great monthly ECB deals at CVS and many other B1G1Free deals this week. Check out Slick Deals CVS deals list for this week here or Slick Deals monthly list for April here.

Put together your best, most hopeful scenario - whether it's CVS, Walgreens, Target, Wal-Mart, or your local grocery store - post it at your blog, then come back here and share it with the Frugal Faithful.

Then after you've made your deal, come back and comment to let us know if it went as planned or not.

Let's share information and help each other so we can be frugal with both our money and our time!
