CVS Trippin' and Clothes Deals

Not too much happenin' for me in the CVS ads this week. But I did manage to turn my $14.00 ECBs into $15.99 ECBs for $1.17. Watch how. :-)

L'oreal moisturizer - $15.99

l'oreal - $1.00
$14.00 ECBs

TOTAL out of pocket - $1.14
Received back $15.99

There is a really good batteries deal going on where I could get tons of batteries for a few dollars. I may or may not do that. BUT, with Christmas coming up, it always seems like we're searching for some size of battery for a toy.

I've also scored some more great deals on kids clothes in the past few days. Being frugal for me means always keeping my eyes peeled for deals. Even if that item isn't on my list. I went to K-mart the other day to buy some random things...bday present, toilet paper, etc. As I was just walking around, I spotted a $0.99 rack of kids clothes. And they just happened to be another 30% off that!! I found four pairs of shorts for Landon (next year of course) for $0.69 a piece!!! Even if they fall apart or don't work, I'm out the amount of money I could probably find in my couch right now.

I also snagged another $0.99 Bailey Boys outfit for Lillian from Jimmy Hale. I debated a little because it looked pretty gender neutral and not as girly as I usually dress her. But I was thinking about adding some bows to the shoulders and ankles. I think I may have some from some other Bailey Boys outfits. You can pin them on and take them off to wash it.

Have you had any frugal finds lately?


  1. Good for you, Linz! You're doing great!!! :)

  2. Hi! My name is Ann and I ran across your blog through Lindsey Slagley's. The title of your blog caught my eye. I am trying to take advantage of the CVS deals, but don't always do so well as some that I read about. Just a quick question: Did you already have that many ECBs? How did you only pay $1.14? Also, do you do grocery game or anything like that, or do you figure out the deals on your own? P.S. You have a beautiful family!

  3. Okay, sorry. I just went back and read and you clearly put that you had $14 ECBs already. So, my next question is: are you always able to roll/keep that many ECBs? It always seems like I only keep 2-4.

  4. Hi Lindsey!
    I just wanted to thank you again for helping me get on this coupon thing. I randomly came across your blog awhile back from Elizabeth (Sullivan) Snodgrass' and saw your CVS trip and sent you a message and was hooked from then. I also found out about the Financial Peace Univ that your husband Robert is leading and both my husband and I have been attending that and love it as well. So between you and your husband - you both have put us on the right financial track and I couldn't thank you enough. I must say that it is def strange to have met both your husband and your parents (who are WONDERFUL by the way) and have not met the one person that got me on this path. So - even though I haven't met you in person, you have greatly touched my life and wanted to say thanks and hopefully one day I will get to thank you in person. Take Care!

    P.S. I hope you don’t mind but I have told my friends about your blog and they are hooked on the whole couponing thing too!


If you don't have anything nice to say, then, please don't say anything at all! THANKS!
