It's so surprising that nobody participates on this thread, but my store just happened to be out of FOUR of the big items on my list!!
It's only the first day, I just knew I was going to get more deals!!! I didn't even get to spend 20 Q's!! I saw like 5 other couponers there with binders!!! Ugh!!
1 Welch's Grape $2.50 - $1 MFR = $.50
4 Welch's Grape $2.50 - $1/2 IP's = $1.50 ea
8 Wet Ones Wipes 40ct $2 ea - $1/2 MFR's = $1 ea
2 Neutrogena Bar 3.5oz $2.99 - $1/1 MFR's = $.99 ea
4 Old Spice Bar Soap 6pk $4 ea -$2/2 MFR's = $2 ea (I was thrilled about this deal )
2 Covergirl Mascara $5.19 - $2/1 MFR's = $1.19 ea
1 Airwick Twin Pack $4.99 - $1/1 MFR = $2.99/twin pk ($1.49 each)
Used a $5/$25 Lowe's Food Q from a local coupon book.
Before Coupons = $65.85 + tax
After Coupons/Total OOP = $22.86 + tax
Used $41 in Coupons
I also left with 4 rainchecks I plan on going back for the items they were out of that were killer deals.

This was a fun trip. My son came along with me. He's great :)
The "Instant" Deal that I did was the Buy $15 worth of participating Frozen Foods, get $5 off instantly.
2 Scott 12pk = 24 Roll TP $4.99 ea - 2 $.75/1 Peelies (Peelies were on CVS TP) = $4.24 ea
2 Jennie-O Sausage Rolls $3 ea - 2 $1/1 IP's = $2 ea
2 Sargento Shredded Cheese $2.50 ea - 2 $.40/1 Peelies = $1.60 ea w/ $1/$3 Dairy FLIP
2 Freschetta Large Pizzas $4.99 ea - $1.50/2 IP = $4.24 ea
1 Pepperidge Farm Texas Toast $2.89
2 Honey Nut Cheerios Cereal 12.25oz $2 ea - 2 $.50/1 IP's = $1.50 ea
1 Lucky Charms Cereal 11.5oz $2 - $.50/1 CSO Q = $1.50
2 Ore Ida French Fries $2.50 ea = $5
less $3/$35 Purchase local savings booklet Q
less $5 Instant Savings on Buy $15, get $5
less $7.30 in individual coupons listed above
less $1 off $3 Dairy Purchase FLIP
less $2 off $5 Frozen Food FLIP
$26.55 OOP + tax!!
Or $1.89 for each item.
Did the Scott/Huggies deal again today for 2nd time and got another $10 ECB's. Seems like you have to get these "limit" deals early or they will disappear before said ending date (like the Tide deal!)
3 Huggies $9.49 ea
2 Palmolive $.99 ea
less 3 Huggies $2/1 IP's
less $10 ECB's from Crest Deal
$14.45 OOP + tax, get $10 ECB's
So $4.15 ea for the Huggies (got 31ct, 36ct, 40ct) = $.11 per diaper
The deal states limit 1 in the CVS flier for the week, but you can atleast do it TWICE! Get it quickly though because sometimes they cut these deals off before the end date.
Honestly it's been a very long time since I have shopped Walgreens, but their road signage pulled me in!
YMMV on quantity. I just got 3 because I only had 3 coupons:
3 Cottonelle 12pk $4.49 ea
less 3 $1/1 WAGS booklet Q's
less 2 $1/1 MFR's*
less 1 $.50/1 MFR
less $2 "Rewards Redemption" Instant Savings (she just said I had $2 on the WAGS rewards card that I could use toward anything, and said I could use it on this transaction so I did! Wahoo, score!)
= $5.97 OOP + tax, or $1.99 per Cottonelle 12pk!
*This was a regional Q.

less $4/$20 CRT
less 2 $.50/1 Crest Toothpaste MFR's
less 2 $1/1 Crest Rinse IP's
less $10 ECB's from T1

Used $31.50 in coupons

I live here, I am telling you.
I went today for the Tide deal but somehow or another it has ended early? The word was that it ended 10/12. Did anyone else wait late and discover that it no longer works?? I talked to store manager and she called her manager and they are saying that it was an old deal. I told her it was unadvertised and a monthly deal. No go. I also tried to confirm with the 1-800 CVS phone number... they said that if it was a store deal and unadvertised, there is nothing they could do Good thing I was able to do it once, but I wanted atleast 4 more.
Nevertheless, I pulled together this deal since NO TIDE!
1 Mitchum Deo $1.99
2 Crest 500ml $5.49 ea
1 Total Home 2-ply 4-roll TP $2.77 (needed)
1 Pet Whole Milk Gallon $3.79 (needed)
less $3/$15 E-mail Q
less $1/1 Mitchum MFR
less 2 Crest $1.50/1 MFR's
less $5 ECB, $2 ECB, $1 ECB
= $4.53 OOP + tax, get $5 ECB's from Crest Deal, $4/$20 CRT also printed (they LOVE giving me these things, and I love spending them!!)
Or $.90 per item.
First time I tried getting milk. The milk did not count toward the $3/$15 Q because it is excluded.

My son must be tired of me taking him on these trips! LOL. I love couponing. I also met someone offline (not from AFC) and got 3 adorable cloth diapes ~ But, that's another thread .
4 Tide 2x 50oz $5.99 ea = $23.96
less $4/$20 CRT from Coupon Machine (yesterday)
less $2/1 Tide MFR
less $5/3 Tide MFR
less $10 ECB's from previous Airwick Deal
= $2.96 OOP + tax! Get $5 ECB's
This means the Tide cost me $.74 each!
4 Mitchum Deodorant $1.99
1 Colgate Total 4.2oz $2.99
1 Crest ProHealth 1L $6.99
1 Crest ProHealth 250 ML $3.79*
less $4/$20 CRT printed at the register after my first transaction!
less 4 $1/1 Mitchum MFR's
less 1 Colgate $.75/1 IP
less 2 Crest $1/1 IP's*
less $5 ECB's from T1
= $5.98 OOP + tax, get $5 ECb's from Crest, get $1 ECB from Colgate
So about $.85 per item in T2
* My store was out of the 1 liter's so she let me substitute!
Before Coupons: $45.69 + tax
After Coupons: $8.94 + tax
Coupons Spent: ($36.75)
Percent Savings: 80%
Received: Still have $8 ECB's left to spend
I had all of the T2 items on my shopping list, but I had to put this transaction together in-store since a $4/$20 coupon printed! I wanted to get more Tide since the limit is 4, but I figured I needed deo more (just beginning to stockpile after my break again).
