Went CVS'ing today...Oh, and pic of my tattoo

Total purchase came to $36.65
Subtract coupons and ECBs 30.09
Amount I paid $ 6.56
ECB's I got on receipt 9.96
So, basically CVS paid me $ 3.40 to take $36.65 worth of stuff home with me.

I limit my purchases to stuff we actually use so I'm not doing as well as most. And I pick up stuff we need that isn't on sale because I'm new at this and don't have a lot of coupons yet. But still pretty good right? Josh is excited about it, and so am I.

Before you go feeling too bad for CVS - the prescriptions I picked up for Snew today had a $40 co-pay, and insurance paid for the rest. I'm pretty sure they make out okay in the long run :).

Wanted to post a pic...blogs just seem more interesting with pics, right? Hmmmmm....

Don't have any CVS themed pics, but i do have this pretty bird of paradise:

as well as a pic of the version on my back:

My Bird of Paradise Tattoo

Designed by graffiti artist "Wombat" and applied somewhere in Boston, MA back before it was legal. I still love it as much as I did when it was first applied many, many, many moons ago.

You just never know where you'll end up when you first set out to post about coupons, lol.

I've never been much good at coupons but it looks like you've got a knack for it :)

Natalie said...

LOL...when I realized my tattoo post was visible on my main page I got a little nervous. I know there are many who don't like'm and I didn't want anyone to think badly of me. But seriously though...I love it! :)

Thanks all :) and my Mom doesn't like it either nikkicrumpet...but all 3 of us have'm...poor Momma.

Won't be adding color because I'm a big fan of black & grey.

I want to get another one. An "N" in this beautiful font I found in honor of my daughter.
