A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned

I've  earned several dollars this week from saving our hard earned pennies. This shopping trip was done at CVS. I took advantage of their weekly ad, cents off coupons, a partial balance that was left on a free gift card that I was given for transferring a prescription, and by using a few CVS extra bucks. All of which cost me nothing!

The above two items are a couple of my regular buys. If I were to pay full price for these two items it would cost me between ten and eleven dollars. By the way, if you haven't tried L'Oreal EverPure shampoo I highly recommend it. It runs around $6.99 a tube and it only takes a dab. This tube was on sale for $5.99 and with my coupon it was $4.99. It is still kind of a luxury item for me to pay that amount for 8.5 ounces of shampoo. But wait there's more. I got an extra two ounce travel bottle for free with my purchase! 

But wait, there's even more! These were just two items out of 18 that I purchased. My grand total out of pocket expense was right around the price that I would have paid for the above two items anyway. 

All of this for just $11.20 out of my pocket.
I love saving those pennies!

If I hadn't splurged on my shampoo
I would have gotten the 17 items for just for $6.00.
But hey, my new hair is so worth it!


  1. Did I somehow miss the picture of the new hair?

  2. Nope. I haven't posted a pic yet. I am due for a cut so I will post pics after that. What I really need to do is get the before and after pics from my stylist. Loving the Brazilian Blowout!
