Free Valentine stuff at CVS

I got cheap Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix at Walmart yesterday (.68 a pouch). Our church is collecting baked goods for our adopted Marine Helicopter Squadron for Valentine's Day this weekend, so I thought I'd make a couple of batches of those cookies with the kisses in the middle and send some to Katie, too. Then i got an idea. Instead of kisses, how about heart-shaped chocolates? But I didn't want to spend money.

I had some CVS ECBs so I thought I'd stop by and see what I could get. I had 5 ECBs for taking a short survey on their website and about 7 ECBs from register rewards. Then I got a bonus! The CVS on East Valley at Citrus has a scanner near the front of the store. Usually when you scan your card it prints out a coupon or two from some CVS products. Sometimes people leave their coupons on top of the machine if they don't want them. Guess what someone left? ECBs!! Yep, 2 of them. I swiped my card and got coupons. pfft.

Now that particular CVS is Valentine Central. They've got a big selection. I spotted Dove chocolate hearts, but they were $4 for an 8 oz. bag. I kept looking and found the CVS brand for .88 for 5.3 oz. I picked up 2 bags. Then I treated myself to a lovely door decoration. It's shaped like a heart, and made of artificial roses. It was on sale 25% off for $7.50.

I had more than enough ECBs to pay for it all and I got 1 ECB back for swiping my bag tag (you get 1 for every 4 tag swipes).

Now our Valentine treats will be extra special, and 3 dozen only cost me $1.36.
