Weekend Haul 03/11-03/12

This was a great weekend for some small hauls. From cheap cosmetics to free toothpaste at CVS to 82% savings at Publix, these past two days saw a lot of money staying in my pocket!

This first deal is from CVS and is no longer valid (sale dates were 03/05-03/11). I am including the breakdown to show you how far coupons really go at this store. Please ignore my son’s toy. He is under the impression my haul pictures need extra help. Note: ecbs = extra care bucks; extra care card needed for deals and cashback. Check out this post Couponing 101  for more info.
