Today I really remembered my love for saving money.
I brought my son to a friend's house for a playdate. On the way home, I stopped at CVS and got 3 newspapers. I had $5 ECB that I used, so it only cost me $4. Took the papers home and started sorting my coupon inserts. I was a bit bummed that there was only one insert, but it was larger than usual. I was most interested in the b1g1 Speed Stick coupon to use later at CVS for free deodorant.
I took the ads and matched up a few deals between CVS and Target that would give me back rewards to use at their stores later on. I also had earned gift cards to both stores via Swagbucks (I will post more about that in a later post), so I was taking that into consideration as well. My internet coupons were also printed via Swagbucks link.
I went to Target first. They showed in their ad that when you purchase 10 select items, you would get a $5 Target gift card in return. There was also a deal on L'oreal hair products that you would get a $5 gift card when you spent $20 on these hair products.
Here is what I purchased:
