Weekday Haul – CVS and Publix

I finally got a chance to do a few shopping trips this week and thank goodness for coupons because my budget is pretty low due to the hurricane. If it were not for store sales, manufacturer and store coupons, AND Extra Care Bucks I would have spent over $180 for my haul. Instead, I ended up saving 83% and only spending just under $31! Here is a breakdown of my trips and please remember that my CVS hauls are posted just to show you how it is possible to pay very little out-of-pocket. If you are just beginning, you may not be able to replicate the CVS deals just yet, but one day you will!

(I apologize for the blurry photos. My camera was dirty thanks to little messy hands.)
