Yes, you read that right. I only spent .76 cent out of pocket and I did 2 transactions. Sounds impossible for me, doesn't it? It's because I had a lot of ECB's saved from the last couple of trips I did.

Transaction #1

2 packs Huggies diapers $15.98
Donation $1.00

Total was around $19

-3/15 CVS coupon
-(2) 1.00 Huggies coupons
-14.47 ECB's

=$0.63 oop

Transaction #2

4 Nivea shave gels $10.76
1 Brut deodorant $3.39
2 Brut deodorant $6.38

Total was around $22

-3/15 CVS coupon
-.55 Brut coupon
-1.00 Nivea coupon
-18.97 ECB's

=$0.13 oop

$9.00 Brut
$5.00 Nivea

I know you are probably thinking I just bought those Playskool diapers a few weeks ago, right? Well, I tried them and they don't work as well as I had hoped. There have been multiple leaking accidents, not to mention, they seem to come undone, and fall off sometimes.

So I am going back to my Huggies! I have always loved the Huggies diapers, and even better they were pretty much free! Yay!!!!

Hi Nancy --
WOW!!! you did really good. I am glad you posted about the diapers. I was feeling bad that I didn't get those diapers!! Now I am glad I passed! Have a great weekend. Sorry to hear about your chicken.

Nancy, I am amazed!!! What a great shopper you are. Sadly we have no programs like that here in Qatar, but to tell the truth, I didn't do them even in the States. But I'm very impressed. I'll have to sit at your feet and learn how to do this so I can make the most of my $$ when I visit the US next.
