End of the Month Coupons-November

So today is the last day of November. It was that time again to go through my coupon binder and pull out expired coupons. I love using my coupons at CVS. I feel that they always have better deals than Walgreen's.
CVS has a promotion going on when you buy $30.00 worth of specially marked items you receive a $10.00 gift card. The gift card does not have to be a CVS card it can be for Macy's,GAP,and a few others. I always choose CVS. In my coupon binder I had $5.00 in ECB and my $10.00 CVS gift card from a purchase I made a few weeks ago. After looking at the CVS ad. last night, I made my list of items that I wanted. I also calculated the cost before and after coupons.
Unfortunately, last night, I miss read a coupon and did not realize it until I was going through my coupon at the store parking lot. Once I was able to get the items above, I had to figure out what else to get without spending too much money. My goal was to spend $5.00 out of pocket. I ended up getting a few things that I did not have coupons for.
Puffs Tissue-$1.98
Cottenell Wipes-$1.99
Gain Softer-$5.94-$.50=$5.49
My total before coupons was $30.78. After coupons and ECB's my total was $16.04. After using my $10.00 CVS gift card my grand out of pocket total was $7.36 tax included. I also received  my $10.00 CVS gift card that I can use towards another purchase. I am very pleased with this purchase. If you are not a couponer, I would highly recommend to start. Its fun,simple and especially rewarding. Please let me know if you have any questions. As always, thanks for stopping by.
