Had $6.00 ECB expired last week, so I had to go spend it.

Saw the children's Advil deal posted: it's on sale for Buy One - Get one 50% off. They have these little 1oz Travel size for $2.49 (up to $2.69 prices may vary).
I have $2.00 any Children's Advil q's from the Doctor's office.
On the first deal I believe the last one beeped for overage, but the cashier put it in manually for the whole $2.00 so I got a little overage. At the 2nd store both coupons went through at $2.00 with no beeps. Yay for overage!
$1.25 50% sale
-2.00 mq x 2 = +26¢ overage

Total Cost $17.78
Also read that the Big Red Machine is giving $1.00 off Any Toothbrush every day this week (so far) which makes the Colgate toothbrushes free.
$2.99 - $1.00 CRT = $1.99, get $2.00 ECB = Free

And that the 2.7oz Crest Complete were counting towards another deal. These were $2.77 at my stores, didn't have any coupons, got $3.00 ECB back for each, limit 2. I bought both of mine at the same time and got $6.00 ECB =  46¢ overage/2

The Mars single candy bars are 75¢, get 75¢ ECB = Free (There were coupons but I didn't get any.)

+$3.86 moneymaker

I still have some Rainchecks from when the 5ct Zyrtec was $5.99 Free After ECB, so I used my $4.00 off mq from the 4/15 SS and they were a $4.00 moneymaker.

I didn't want to go home with ECBs so I spent the ones I had on the candy deal. Reese's Mini's bags are $3.00 each; deal is Buy $15.00 and get $5.00 ECB.
I bought 5 bags, used (2) $1.00/2 mqs from 4/15 SS = $13.00, get $5.00 ECB = $8.00, or $1.60 a bag.
King size candy costs about that, or more, and I looove these Reese's Minis, so I thought it was a good deal.

What wasn't a very good deal was the Starbucks K-cups, in comparison with deals I've gotten on other kinds of K-cups, but I guess for being Starbucks they were probably an okay deal.
They're on sale for $7.49 for a 10ct box, and I used $2/2 IP, making them $6.49 per box, or about .65 per cup.

Final total $13.92 oop 


I ended up with 25 more $4.00 coupons from the 4/15 SS after I bought all those last month, and as they are expiring day-after-tomorrow, I had to get out and use them.
Visited Walmarts (yes, plural) for these.

Total cost including tax = $37.17 (about 32¢ per pill)


Aldi's produce special this week included 59¢ lettuce and 59¢ on-the-vine-tomatoes. A large garden salad for $1.18!

Bread, milk (I got 4 gallons @ $1.99 each), cokes (I got 8 cokes @ 69¢ each), refried beans, hot dogs, eggs, poptarts, chocolate milk syrup, corn chips, and tortilla chips are all cheaper at Aldi than other stores I shop.

Meats are hit and miss at Aldi, but this week I found boneless, skinless chicken breast for $1.99lb, which has lately been my stock up price.

Total cost including tax $37.77
