Unplanned trip- 4/14

Total before sales & coupons: $29.73
Savings: $26.11 or  87.82%
OOP (out of pocket): $4.67

Had to go and pick up a few things and opted to use the rewards than real money to pay for stuff. Visited CVS first as I had a few CVS free coupons and $3 Birthday coupon. I also had a $1/2 coke coupon after realising that I had atleast  2 $5 ECB's I was going to use I opted not to use the coupon. We were short on Honey nut Cheerios and pasta sauce and wanted  also to take advantage of the current sale on xtra detergant and prunes.Unfortunately there were no prunes in store so i took a raincheck. Received a sweet surprise when I scanned my CVS card I received $5 ECB reward as I had reached $50 for the Beauty Club rewards. I also had the CVS online coupon to get a free mesh sponge when you buy any essence of beauty bath & body purchase but they were out asked for a raincheck. The cashier didnt want to do it asked if I could visit another store.
