My CVS Shopping Trip

I have to admit that I have not been able to coupon lately because of my hectic work schedule.  I also don’t normally go at midnight to my local 24 hour CVS, but sometimes there is a great deal in which you just have to make an exception.  Right now CVS has so many free items after ECB rewards.  If you have not been to CVS then you may want to run, or drive, to your nearest one before these sell out.



I started out with $8 in ECB that I had saved from the previous week.  Most of the items you see in this picture are on sale at CVS and they give you the ECB for the price of the item which makes it FREE.

The 4 pack of Colgate travel is $3.29, but you get $3 in ECB back which makes them $0.29 each, and there is a limit of 2 per household.  I really love these packs because I use them to put in my girls sleepover bags.  The Gum toothbrushes are on sale for $2, and you get $2 ECB back making them free, and they are also a limit of 2 per household.

In the picture above, the products have a retail value of $85.18 and I paid $5.07 out of pocket.  The deal was so great I had to go back this morning.  This morning’s transaction had a retail value is $75.20 and my out of pocket expense was $3.60.  When you add those up I got $160.38 worth of products for $8.67.  That’s savings of a little over 94%.  A great way to start my Black Friday shopping.

Kroger® Private Selection® – Enter the “Culinary Creations” Sweepstakes

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kroger® Private Selection® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

What are the four food staples you always have on hand?

Before heading to the grocery store, I always ensure we have milk, bread, lunchmeat & pasta.  Those items are staples that you will always (okay, almost always) find in my kitchen.  Preparing 3 homemade lunches per day and having the occasional soup and sandwich night, we must have bread and lunchmeat on hand at all times!  Not to mention that pasta is my go-to last minute meal.

Everyone knows that I’m a huge advocate of eating at home and living on a budget.  That’s why I was excited to share with you that Kroger® Private Selection® products are gourmet quality, without the gourmet price. Their motto is ”Quality You Can Taste, Value You Deserve.” You can’t beat that, right!?

ALPO® Brand Dog Food: Part 2 – The Taste Test!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of ALPO® Brand Dog Food for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


We finally had the chance to let Chipper try his ALPO® Chop House Chucks wet dog food. Let me tell you about how much of a treat this was for our four-legged friend! As a pup who is usually limited to the very specific brand of pet food we feed him and a few treats here and there.

He was SO interested in this gravy laden goodness that came out of a can.


Can’t you tell how excited he is to try it!?


Since he can’t read, I told him it was T-Bone Steak flavored. He seemed to like that :P



Chipper LOVED it!

Here is a video of him getting excited to try his new food:

We want Chipper to live a long long and healthy life, and ALPO® wet dog food is here to help!  Did you know that ALPO® wet dog food is 100% complete and balanced and has quality ingredients, like healthy protein sources, wholesome grains and accents of vegetables, contribute to form a complete and balanced diet for each life stage?  You can learn more about ALPO® balanced nutrition on ALPO’S HOMEPAGE.

Make sure to follow along on ALPO’s Facebook Page for more about #HappyStartsHere.

Do you feed your dog ALPO® Chop House Chucks in Gravy or ALPO® Homestyle Prime Cuts Gravy Cravers?

Remember, A healthy dog is a happy dog!
