I would like to do this deal several times as Dove is the only bar soap we use at our house. I hope to roll the Register Rewards into the Huggie's Deal that is coming up on Sunday.
From what I have read on several forums, you will need to purchase $25.00 in select huggie's merchandise and you will receive a $10 Register Reward. Use the new Coupons.com printables that are $5.00 off and $3.00 for a great deal!
3 - Huggies Jumbo Packs @ $10.00 each (-$5.00, -$5.00, -$3.00) = $17.00
I will need a $3.00 filler and then I will use 2 of the $10 Dove Register Rewards making my diapees free!!! Can't beat that :)

4 - J&J washes/lotions @ $3.74
2 - J&J vapor baths @ $5.24 (a little on the expensive side but this is fabulous stuff and Nicholas is sick)
1 - J&J powder @ 3.36
1 - J&J oil @ 3.59
I also picked up the following items in the same transaction:
1 - Nivea lip balm @ $2.99 (-$1.00 in ad coupon/$1.00 off Manufacturer's Coupon) = $0.99
1- packge of PEEPS (cause they look so yummy) @ $0.39 with in ad coupon.
I paid $29.14 out of pocket including tax and received $10 in RR back.
THEN I did this transaction.
3 - packs of paper plates (which we needed desperately) @ $0.99 with in ad coupon
2 - packs of puff tissue (again Nicholas is sick!) @ $0.99 with in ad coupon
2 - bags of jelly beans @ 2/$1.00 with in ad coupon
2- boxes of candy @ $1.00/each
1 - bag of Funyuns (to go with my sandwich for lunch) @ $1.29
2 - pacakges of peeps @ $0.39 with in ad coupon
My total came to $10.64. I used my $10 RR and ...
TOTAL OUT OF POCKET FOR TRANSACTION #2 = $0.64!
So All together I spent $29.78 for $67.00 worth of merchandise. Plus I have the paper plates and tissue that I need as well as a start on my baby shower gifts to my sister!
I did try to do the Ritz Cracker deal - they are 2/$1.99 and there is a $2.00 off 2 manufacturer's coupon but unfortunately even though the coupon says ANY - the cashier would not let me use it.
Well that's it for me today. I hope to hit up CVS later this week for the hershey bar sale because that is the favor for the baby shower and they are 2/$1.00!

2 Gillette Shampoos @$4.99 each (FEB ECB DEAL - get $3.00 ECBs)
I used a $1.00/1 Q and a $2.00/1 Q
And my $5.00 in ECBs.
I paid $2.49 out of pocket and received $6.00 back in ECBs. Not bad for the shampoo my husband likes.
3 - Suave Body Washes @ $2.00 each (Buy $6.00 get $2.00 in ECBs)
2 - boxes of candy on sale for $1.00 each (I need something to get me through the afternoon here at work)
Used $1/1 Q and a $0.50/1 Q on the Suave
And my $6.00 in ECBs.
I paid $0.51 OOP and received $2.00 back in ECBs along with a CRT FOR $3.00 off ANY shampoo and conditioner along with a bunch of other CRTS.
2- Herbal Essences (bought the new hydralicious line which smells awesome)
1 - bag of RoldGold pretzels for the Bingo Fundraiser on Sunday
Used $3.00/2 Herbal Essence Q and the $3.00/2 CVS CRT coupon
And my $2.00 in ECBs from above
My OOP was $1.04 and I got $2.00 back in ECBs.
So for $26.85 in merchandise I spent $4.04 out of pocket and I have $2.00 left to spend! Not bad. My sister asked me today how I get away with "robbing" CVS. And asked if I could show her.
I was upset that I couldn't do the neutrogena deal that everyone has been blogging about. This CVS was all out of the bars of soap. I may stop off at a CVS on my way and try there. I have $2.00 in ECBs burning a whole in my pocket.
This is how it would go:
2 Neutrogena soap bars $2.99/each = $5.98 - $2.00 = $3.98 plus tax out of pocket and get back $10 in ECBs!! What a great money maker!

4 Ragu pasta sauces @ $1.99 each (used $0.50 off 2 and a $0.75 off 2 coupons)
2 Jiffy peanut butters @ $1.99 each (used a $0.75 off 2 coupon)
2 Dove Hair care products @ 2/$7.00 (had 2 $1.50 off Dove haircare coupons)
I spent $14.something (I can't find my receipt) out of pocket and received a $10 register reward back.
I went through the line again and got
1 package of bounty on sale for $6.99 ($0.25 off coupon)
2 packages of Dixie napkins @ $1.99 ($1.00 off coupon in today's paper x 2)
2 packages of Dixie paper plates on sale for $1.99 each ($1.00 off coupon x 2)
I used my $10 register reward to pay for it and spent $1.75 out of pocket. I believe the bounty was 6 rolls. So all in all not a bad day. I am good on pasta sauce and peanut butter for a while!
Hopefully I can get the little monster down for a nap so I can hit Jewel and CVS later! HOpe you are having a GREAT sunday!

I started couponing last year and now I am going to become more serious about it. I hope to use this blog as an opportunity to share deals with you and also keep track of my savings/earnings.
Today was an awesome day for me. That's why I'm calling it the Super Sunday Savings Spree.
It started out at Walgreens.
I had 2 items that I needed to return which gave me about $20 back in cash. I also had $10 in my wallet. So $30 total which I was going to use for both Walgreens and CVS. This is how I did.
4 Fructis items @ $2.99 [-$2.00 ESQ and $1.00 MQ = -$0.04]
Electrasol Geltabs @3.49 [-$2.50 MQ and $1.50 ESR = -$0.51 after rebate]
1 Sunday paper
My total OOP was $4.02! Not bad. Plus I will get back $1.50!
At CVS I did 3 transactions.
4 Colgate toothpastes @ 2/$5.00 [-$1.50 PQ/Get $4.00 in ECBs]
1 Pamolive Dish Soap @ $0.97 [-$0.25 MQ]
1 Cottonelle 20 pack @ $12.97 [-$1.00 MQ/Get $4.00 in ECBs]
1 Ziploc Baggie Twic pack @$5.99 [-$1.00 MQ/Get $2.00 in ECBs]
I also used a $5.00 off $25.00 that came in my email for this weekend only. $2.50 in ECBS for fall spending and $5.00 in ECBs that I had from a previous purchase.
My total was $10.62 and I got back $10.00 in ECBS!
2 Infant's Motrin @ 2/$11.00 [-$2.50 MQ]
1 package of Bandaids @ $3.00
1 Tylenol Cold @ $6.00 [-$1.00 MQ]
1 Freedom Lite Monitor @ $9.99 [-$9.99 MQ]
I also used a $5/$25.00 coupon, $2.00 off pain reliever CVS coupon, and my $10.00 in ECBs from above.
My total ended up $0.27 negative so I threw in a package of tic tacs @ $0.99 and my total came to $0.73. I got $10 in ECBS for the motrin/band aids/tylenol.
3 packs of pepsi @ 3/$10.00 [-$1.00 MQ]
1 Johnson & Johnson's baby wash @ $2.99 [-$1.00 MQ]
I used my $10 ECB from transaction #2 and spent $1.24 OOP.
So in total I only spent a little over $16.00 OOP at Walgreens and CVS!
Now, if you have a Jewel near you -- they have a great deal going on. Buy $30 worth of participating merchandise and receive $15.00 on your next order.
I did 3 transactions at Jewel today.
8 Roll pack of Bounty $10.00 (-$0.25)
Trix @ $2.00 (-$1.00)
2 - Yoplait Kids @ $2.50/each (-$1.50/each)
2- Cheerios @ $2.00/each (-$1.00)
2 - Betty Crocker Brownie Mix @ $1.67 (-$1.00)
2- Patene Products @ $3.33/each (-$3.00)
My total OOP: $23.39 and I received $15.00 back
3 packages of Pampers @ $10.00 (-$4.00 in coupons)
I used my $15.00 from transaction #1 to pay for the diapers and spent $13.48 out of pocket. Which is not bad for 3 packages of size 5 pampers! I also received back the $15.00 in coupons and an extra $5.00 good on your next baby product purchase.
2 Packages of prepackaged salad @ 2/$5.00 (they were also running a special on these that if you buy 2 you get up to 2 lbs of Bananas free so I got 2 lbs exactly!)
1 package of baby carrots @ 1.50
1 Green Peper @ $0.77
1 cucumber @ $0.79
1 Johnson's Baby Vapor Bath (to use the $5.00 coupon good on next baby purchase) @ $5.49 (-$1.00 MQ)
1 Package of Jewel Croutons @ $1.00
I used the $5.00 baby coupon and a $5.00 jewel coupon and paid $4.03 OOP. I have $10.00 left to roll sometime this week when they get the Downy back in stock! I am going to be taking advantage of this offer as much as possible. It is good until 1/18!!
The great news too is I can use the products from Jewel transaction #1 and #2 to fufill my $50 requirement to get the $120 worth of Proctor and Gamble coupons. I already filled out my form and will be sending that in tomorrow morning!
Not a bad shopping day! Hope you all had a great Super Sunday!

Most of the glade was gone but I scored 2 apple cinnamon candles (yum) and 2 window scent thingees. Then I knew Revlon was Buy 1 Get 1 Free and I knew I had coupons for Revlon. So I got 2 nailpolishes. I then saw the Vaseline lotion was on sale for $5.99 and you get back $2.00 in ECBs. So I grabbed one of those for my desk (my hands are so dry this time of year). I also bought a bottle of hand sanitizer which was on sale for $3.99 with $2.00 ECBs back. I then needed a small filler item about $2.00. So I noticed that 8 pks of certain candies were on sale. The Reeses and Kitkats were calling my name. My total before everything was over $61.00. After coupons and the $15.00 ECB from the first duracell deal, I paid $22.00.
I know what you are thinking. $22.00 WHOA that is alot. But not really considereding that the batteries alone 4 X $5.99 = $23.96.
And the fact that I got $24.00 back in ECBS!!!!!!!!!!!! This is by far one of my most exciting trips. I need pretty much everything and it included 4 packs of batteries! WOW!
So yes, I <3>
