The cheapest Revlon my store had was $4.49, so I ended up paying .50 instead of making it. I also had to buy wipes because we suddenly ran out, so that cost $3.99, then I filled in with my favorite soup so I could get the extra $2.00 off. I lost a small coupon somewhere in the store, then the cashier forgot to ring up my batteries and I couldn't see it on the display before I paid, so it messed my checking out order up, but I figured it out thankfully before I left. I could have had a bit more savings had those things not happened.
All in all, I went in with $20.29 in ECB's, and left with $15 in ECBs, and paid $2.23 out of pocket. So my total "spent" was $7.52, 50 more cents than the unexpected purchases of soup and wipes plus their tax. Not bad, $.50 for all the rest of it. Oh, and then if I get my Tylenol rebate of $5, I will have made $4.50.
I wonder how my family will like Tylenol and Alkaseltzer for stocking stuffers? ;)
