CVS trip, Great makeup clearance but husband ruined trip! : )

Thanks to a tip from my friend Susan W. I went tonight looking for 75% off make-up and I found it!!
I happened to buy some Physicians Formula makeup last time it was on clearance and I have fallen in LOVE with it. That is my favorite brand now! Sometimes the tags are hard to see because they are green and the packaging is green.
I got up to the register with my make-up all 75% off, plus $1 off coupons for the L’Oreal so I figured I was spending about $2.50 out of pocket for all the make-up below, I had $21 in coupons and ECB’s from a while ago.
BUT…. I had my husband with me and as I was checking out he threw in pain medication, oral gel and diapers, none of which I had coupons for!
So my total for all was $22.85
I did save $95.69 though!
This is the way I look at it. I was frustrated with him for tossing in the extra stuff esp. since I didn’t have coupons but if you needed it it doesn’t make sense to wait for coupons.
At home I have an entire tub of pain medication, my husband just had major dental work done and says that none of what I had was doing anything for him, so he needed something else. I can’t argue with that!
As for the diapers, there have not been any great deals lately on diapers. Does anyone know of any that are coming up?!
P.S. I am teasing about him ruining the trip! šŸ™‚

    Well I found one find at the CVS clearance sale tonight. Eye shadow for 27 cents post coupon. I learned once again the value of clipping every coupon because I am sure I didn't cut out some of the coupons that I would have been able to use on the makeup clearance. However since I don't wear make up often it isn't a great loss. Thanks for the great tips you give!

    Target has pampers boxes on sale for 18.99, you can find $2.00 manufacter coupons plus $2 target coupons as well. I was able to a box of 96 pampers for 14.99 which is the best price i've been able to find lately.

    I know how you feel. My husband threw in a magazine one night & completely ruined my savings. That was definitely not a need, but oh well.

    Sometimes we just need things when there aren't coupons. That is just life. Great deals on the makeup though. I have never tried Physicians Formula. I think it would be a neat idea to do a post on makeup. This is an area where I have wasted alot of money. I will buy something, get it home and try it on, and then regret my purchase. I also have been guilty of spending big bucks on makeup just because of the label when maybe a cheaper product would work just as well. Does anyone else have this problem?

    You can use the coupons on clearance items? our Walgreens won't let you. I've never tried to do so at CVS

    90% of the time you can at CVS. Actually come to think of it I do it at Walgreens all the time! I wonder why they don't let you??At CVS unless you find the clearance items in a clearance section with a line drawn through the bar code than you can always use coupons!I always use coupons also at the grocery stores on mark down dairy. great deals there!

    I accuse my husband of ruining my shopping trips all the time. It never fails when he is with me, he always finds something he can't live without:) I can't NOT take him with me though, he enjoys it way too much. He calls our shopping trips, our "treasure hunt."

    I have tried in the past to always use coupons with the Huggies and find the best deal, but I am so hooked on Kirkland brand from Costco. They run about 23 cents/diaper and they dont leak…which seems to be an issue with my boys!

    I don't know if I missed something or not. Can you use Loreal coupons for Physician's Formula brands?

  10. MyLitter Says:

    Kristi,No I just used the Loreal coupons on the Loreal products. I didn't have any q's for the PF brand at all. I had $1 off on Loreal. I used ECB's to pay for the PF.
