Thank You CVS!

She rang everything up one time and somehow she owed me .17 so we had to re-ring it and i lost out on some overage:( It's ok though i still did good. They all were amazed at how much shit i got. She was like "are you gonna take all that Excedrin?" I said NO! just most of it. I told her i would only do it if it was practically free or if i could sell it and make a profit. she asked how long it took to do all the couponing stuff, i said that i had no life so i stay up all night researching it! they were really nice. i told them i was lucky to have nice people who worked there because i have heard of the nasty ones that people on HCW have encountered. I think i made new friends with the CVS crew!!

A Few Pictures of My Stockpile categorized

That is a girls Dream!! Makeup, who could ask for more, Free makeup that is.
Well i guess i haven't really worked on that pile, but that shit aint cheap, even with coupons!
Holy Crap, you would think my house smells great, But i really haven't even used any of this stuff yet.
Another pile i haven't been able to work on too much, this is another item that is not so cheap after coupons.
I got great deals on this stuff, with my BOGO coupons and $$ of coups...these were pretty cheap, but not free.
Yeah, i will never have to worry about a headache or migraine again! that makes me happy
And who the heck needs that many effin toothpastes!!!! i guess i do, now i don't ever have to worry about buying them with actual money ever again. WWWWAAAHHHAAAAHHHAAAA!!


My supplies

I use a binder when i go grocery shopping so i can keep track of everything i am spending and saving so when i get home to check my receipt i can make sure everything came off as planned. I can't keep track of that shit in my head i need to write it down:) and i keep my printouts of my shortcuts, cellfire, and P&G coupons that are on my card in here too.
This is my coupon box, i have it categorized down just the way i like it!

my Full-A-Shit closet

I have tons of toilette paper and paper towels. I know most of that toilette paper was free, but i did pay for the paper towels.
this picture does no justice for how much is hiding behind all the stuff up front. Look how many bottles of excedrin i have!!! oh and all the Glade. there is a ton of toothpaste back there too.
this is all my body wash, shampoo, deodorant, bath product shelf. those mascaras were free, all the sauve soap was really cheap if not free, can't really remember.
the back row there is all laundry detergent, then my fabrese , oh and dish soap i will never run out of for the rest of my life!. those clorox bleach toilette bowl cleaners were $.26 ea and i got a free clorox disinfectant towels for free when i got the bowl cleaner!!
