CVS / Walgreens: Spent $5.71, saved $14.66

After a few weeks of excellent drugstore shopping, my luck ran out this week.  There weren't too many great deals this week.  I didn't want to purchase some of the good deals, like on dental floss, because I have lots in my stockpile. 

And for other deals, I didn't have the coupons.  For instance, the one for Dasani water intrigued me, but the B1G1 Dasani Recyclebank coupon was a mailed coupon instead of a print at home coupon.  And I doubt that I'd receive it in time to use for the sale here.

But I was happy to find the Green & Black 70% Dark Chocolate bars on sale.  I absolutely adore dark chocolate!  And the milk deal at CVS was good as well - $2.69 per gallon after ECBs.  That's a better price than at ALDI, where milk is $2.99 per gallon in my area.

I also picked up some barrettes that were free after RRs at Walgreens, and some eye makeup remover that I found on the discount shelf at CVS.

Here are the details of the deals:


2 Green & Black organic chocolate bars @ $2.00 = $4.00
