CVS trip and the Krazy Coupon Machine

Headed over to CVS at lunchtime...I was a bit disappointed. I wasn't overly excited about many of the ExtraCare Buck offers anyway, and of course, the ones I wanted were wiped out, mainly the St. Joseph Aspirin and the Scope Outlast Mouthwash.  I chose to not do any ECB deals but I did get my $10 gas card.

Make sure that you pick yours up!!! There are coupons inside!!!

Spend $30 earn a $10 gas card 
Honestly, this is one of my favorite deals that CVS has going on right now.
Spend $30 on participating products (they are noted by a gas pump in the CVS ad) and you earn a $10 gas card.  The best part....It's $30 BEFORE coupons!!!!

My plan is to map out what I need for my stockpile based on the sales and my coupons and plan accordingly.  Now this trip, didn't work out as well as I would have liked for one main reason.  
I actually did my trip on the fly without planning so I wasn't overly excited by the result, but for a quick lunch trip to CVS, it wasn't too bad. 
Important note:  CVS stocks their shelves on Saturday night.  By Sunday afternoon, the best sales are gone by people like you and me, working the Extra Care Bucks deal.  
Since I was dealing with my vision issues Sunday and Monday, I didn't go until today and my deal wasn't quite as good as I would have liked, but I still scored pretty well.

I spent $19.75 OOP and received a $10 Arco gas card
Net spent = $9.75
