Yesterday was the first time I've ever asked to have my purchase broken up into 2 seperate transactions, but it paid off in spades!
4 Nivea Lip Balms
On sale for 2/$5
Used 4 $1 MQ

Used $10 ECB from my Excedrin deal last week
Used $5 ECB from my Nivea lip balm purchase
Used $1 ECB from my green bag tag
**But that's not the best part! The items I purchased were part of CVS' weekly Spend $30 on participating products get a $10 CVS gift card promotion!
So in the end I spent $18 out of pocket and got $10 back!
Now seriously folks, for anyone who thinks couponing is stupid, think about the fact that a bag of diapers (which is less than half of the diapers in the box I bought) costs $9.49 on average. Pretty darn amazing!
