FMM Weekly Savings Facebook Live


It’s only taken 8 months (that’s how long it’s been since we moved to Florida), but I finally have a coupon savings worthy Facebook Live to share with you  I titled this

Wondering why it’s taken so long?  It’s because Florida grocery stores don’t double coupons.  Not only that, but prices on non-food items like shampoo and conditioner are much higher.  For that reason we have been living off the stock pile of toiletries that I had purchased in Pennsylvania.  Well after 8 months, the pile is definitely dwindling and this frugal minded mom almost went in a panic over shampoo.  No way was I going to pay $4 for a bottle, especially when I have 5 kids who go through it like crazy.

Fortunately for me, CVS had some great deals this week that allowed me to stock up on shampoo, conditioner, laundry soap, and razors.  All items that I need and used to buy using double coupons at Giant Eagle, but no longer can.

I was so excited, I just had to share my coupon “high” with you.  I am hoping to do this weekly and while I won’t be sharing Giant Eagle anymore, it will include National Stores like CVS and maybe Target and Walgreens in the future.  The other thing that should help you out is in most cases it will be based on just getting one paper a week (might be 2 in rare occasions, but there is no way I’m buying 4 – because the newpapers are more expensive here too.)

So here are the deals and transactions I did at CVS this week.  To make the most of the ECBS, I did do this is 4 different transactions so that’s how I am going to share the deals.

Out of Pocket $37.37 and have $10 ECB still to use
Coupon Savings $81.35 PLUS $34 worth of ECBS  **I would say that’s worth buying 1 (maybe 2) papers
Store Savings $70.75

Remember, I only had 1 1/2 papers and didn’t have a stash of printed coupons.  So it is totally doable to save big even without a huge pile of coupons.

Preview of What I will used my $10 ECBs on next week at CVS

Well, I had hoped to give you some great deal ideas here, but upon looking at the preview of next week’s ad, there really isn’t anything that jumps out to me right now that I just really need.  So since my ECBs are good until 2/11/18 I think I’ll be waiting a week.

I will tell you, that if you don’t get to the Boost for 99 cents a pack deal I got above by Saturday, you still have a chance next week.
