CVS Sunday: 5/9/11

CVS Pharmacy logoImage via Wikipedia
It was a wild ride this week! Thanks to Coupon Mom and her drugstore deals, and to Simply CVS. Please let me know if you spot any mistakes in coupon amounts or calculation errors. I'm pretty new at this, and my math skills are rusty.

Here's what I picked up (below). Most of the chocolate is in the freezer. And yes, I spent way too much OOP, but my husband loves his Excedrin so hopefully we'll see some savings in the coming months. ;-) Also, there should be two more peanut butter M&M's in the picture, but they seem to have disappeared. I have NO IDEA what happened to them. *gulp*

I'm having a bit of trouble deciding upon a standard method for calculation of savings. My natural inclination is to consider both ECB's surrendered and ECB's earned. However, it seems like lots of folks don't take ECB's surrendered into account when calculating their savings percentages. I want to be sure to use the most standard and accepted method of calculation among those of us who do this, so I'll watch and learn for a while before settling on a standard method to use going forward.

All You Magazine 2-Year Subscription for $25, with $9 to help tornado victims!

Help Southern Savers help you and the Alabama tornado victims at The West Alabama Food Bank with your $25 purchase of a two year subscription to All You Magazine by clicking HERE. With your order, a whopping NINE dollars will go to feed the hungry! I'm literally kicking myself, having just spent $35 at Amazon last week for a two-year subscription to All You Magazine, with no proceeds going to The West Alabama Food Bank.

I'm sure most of you have heard of All You Magazine by now. Every issue includes around $50-$100 in coupons. I've seen "AY" referred to in a steadily increasing number of weekly coupon matchups, including those done by the ever-popular Southern Savers and Coupon Mom.

Here's how to do it!

1. Visit Southern Savers at Fundraising Online by clicking HERE.

2. Click "Support Us".
3. Type "All You" into the white search field and click on "SEARCH".

4. Click on "ALL YOU"
5. It should default to "30 for $25.00" and "New Subscription". In any case, click what is appropriate for you and then "ADD TO CART". Follow through to confirm your purchase.

Enjoy your All You Magazines, the fantastic coupons within, and bask in the glow of contentment in knowing you did a good thing!
