(FYI- I bought the ice cream scooper because it was the cheapest item in site. I had to get over $4.00 so I could use the ExtraCare Bucks from Transaction #2. CVS does not allow you to use ExtraCare Bucks that are over the total amount of your purchase.)

(FYI- I mailed in the rebate for "Buy $5 worth of Pert Plus products, get up to $5 in FREE school supplies". I found this rebate form in the Sunday paper back in July I think. They will send me $5 back for this purchase.)

Grand total of my purchases (after rebate) is $6.01.

Keep saving money and have a blessed week!
