Cvs Run Today - done until next week

I apologize for not posting a matchup post for CVS or Walgreens this past week. I am trying to get more on a blogging schedule to actually remind myself to post matchups and such regularly but I am such a sporadic shopper. When I wake up in the morning, I might THINK I am going to HEB, but if I get a text or email from a buddy, or read a hot deal on a forum, my schedule changes instantly!
Anyway, that is quite fair to you guys so I will attempt to at least do better telling you what is on my list for the week. As I have stated in the past, I will not do matchups for EVERYTHING in the ad for chain stores like Walgreens and CVS because to be honest, there are tons of bloggers out there that make this their full time gig and run circles around me trying to compete, lol!

So anyway, on to my shopping trip. I had not really done any of the deals this week, actually today is the first day I have been to CVS all week. I HAD to go to get my Kotex MM I posted about here.

Well, while I was there, I could not pass up the money maker deal on Revlon tools.  Buy 2 get $7 in ecbs.  The emery boards pictured were $3.39 at my store.  I used a $1 insert from 1-15 SS making them cost $4.78 but getting back $7, so a $2.22 profit.

I also read on SD about the Neosporin Eczema anti inch cream ringing up $8.49 and triggering a $5 ECB.
We have $3 insert coupons from 1-22 SS or a $3 IP here, making it just .49 after ecb.

And I am not sure where I read this, but a blog mentioned the Carmex Healing lotions can be found at some CVS stores for .99.  We have $1 off any size coupons that expire 1-31 from the 10-30 RP.  I found them at a CVS on my way home from Staples and the manager told me to take all I wanted(thanks Jon :D)  These are perfect size for my kids rooms and for stocking stuffers for next year.

So overall my trip costs:
1.50 profit Kotex
$2.22 profit on Revlon
.49 cost on Neosporin
Break even on Carmex

A positive shopping tally of $3.23 :D
