The Shopping Adventures of Cheapo McFrugalpants

"Hello, My name is Chea
po and I am addicted to free."

What does Cheapo have in store for us this week? Tell us Cheapo, how did you save money at CVS for the week of August 3rd? It looks like Cheapo found lots of good coupons, making that OOP (that's Out Of Pocket to you and me) cash go down, down, down.
Break it down for us McFrug.

First Trip of the

What does all of this mean Cheapo? It means that after paying with a $10.00 prior ECB and a printable CVS q (Save $2 on $10), Cheapo only paid $.69 plus $1.19 tax for a grand total of $1.88 - YES, for ALL of THAT stuff!!
**Use your buy one get one free coupons on items that are sale priced as buy one get one free - you'll end up getting BOTH items free! Also, if the store is having a BOGOF sale - don't forget to use a coupon on the free item as well! Just a lit
tle tip from Cheapo - helping the world save a little money one reader at a time.

Second Trip of the Week

Dean's 2% Gallon Milk - $2.99
CVS Handsoap - $1.69 - $2.00 printable CVS Q
Gilette Power Fusion Razor - $9.99 - $4.00 Sunday Q - $3.00 ECB

After Cheapo paid with an $11.58 ECB and a printable CVS Q (save $2 on $10), with tax, she only paid $3.55 OOP Cash - Yes my friends, only $3.55! She would've paid more than that for a gallon of milk at the local grocery store! And if that isn't good enough, Cheapo received $11.99 in ECB's back. That brings the McFrugalpants grand weekly total to: $5.43

Stay tuned for more "Shopping Adventures" and see what else Cheapo might find this week!
