    Not the greatest deals today but I decided to save my $5/$25 Q for next week’s deals. I figure I paid for one of the four newspapers today (one of them was for my neighbor who reimbursed me the $1.50). That put me OOP only $1.74.

    Today’s deals:

    (1) Vaseline Sheer Infusion Lotion @ $7.99
    Used (1) $1.50 Q

    Spent: $1.89 OOP
    Used: $5.00 ECBs
    Got Back: $7.00 ECBS

    (4) Wrigley’s 15 pc packs @ $1 each
    Used (2) B1G1 coupons
    (2) Gold Emblem Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds @ $.99 each
    Used (1) CVS CRT $2 off 2 Gold Emblem nuts
    (4) Washington Post newspapers @ $1.50 each

    Spent: $1.35 OOP
    Used: $7 in ECBs
    Got Back: $1 ECB

    Merchandise Total: $19.97
    Total Spent: $3.24 – $1.50 reimbursed = $1.74
    Used: $12 in ECBs
    Got Back: $1 ECB
    Saved: $16.73

    I figure I saved at least 91% today. If you add back in the $1 ECB I still have, I was only out-of-pocket 74 cents. Now that’s sweet!

    I am not sure if you used the CVS near us, but I was in there mid-day and they still had a few newspapers. I was happy to see that and am hoping that they will still be carrying a fair number. We’ll see.
