Another Dorky Coupon Brag

The original total was over $50 at CVS....I paid $0.67 by using coupons (no extra care bucks, just coupons) and got $7 in extra care bucks, so basically I was paid $6.33 to take this stuff! If you got today's paper, in the P & G coupon insert there is a buy one get one free cover girl lip gloss coupon. They are buy one get one free at CVS, so take that coupon and you can get two free lip glosses there this week (they are orginally $9.99)! And for those wondering why in the world I got a glucose monitor, I was paid $5 to take it, so if anyone wants it, it is all yours!

I was wondering why you bought a glucometer. Do you ship overseas? :) Seriously, that's the brand of glucometer I use, but I haven't seen the mini before. It would come in really handy. Please email me (you can contact me from my profile) -- you can mail it to someone who will be visiting Vienna soon or if someone else has already claimed it you can tell me how you got it so I can send my parents after one. I love mini stuff!

Suzanne, I rely on coupon message boards to get all my ideas from. There are tons of other women out there who are much better than me with coupons, so I just steal all their ideas. It just takes time to figure out the sales and to cut all the coupons! I didn't really understand how CVS worked with the extra care bucks for a long time, but now I rarely pay for things there. Email me (katiedmcdowell@yahoo.com) and I will send you all the message boards I look at.

I'm about to post my goods from the day!! Thank you so much for your help! I don't know why, but I was kind of nervous..LOL!! The new checker was nervous too so the manager came over and she was not very friendly! ONce I got home I noticed that on one receipt they scanned my coupons twice (only two of them) and on the other receipt they did not scan my 2.00 off cvs coupon...so i guess it equals out! The other thing I didn't realize is that I should have only bought one of the wetslicks...oh well, I'm learning! I really appreciate you taking the time to help me today!!

You're too funny! I love it! By the way, there's another mcdowell family blog out there. I thought you had changed up your blog, but no, I was looking at the wrong family!

Elaine, yeah ,there is a mormon McDowell family that I look at every so often http://www.themcdowellfamily.blogspot.com/ It is kind of fun to look at another family with the same name.
