a few samples that arrived

A few of the samples that arrived recently.   

A while back my boyfriend ordered from Volpi and finally it arrived! Here are some photos.  Basically it was a small piece of vacuum-packed salami (called salamini! so cute!) in an envelope.  No adverts, no coupons.  Weird

I got the Aveeno haircare samples, not impressed because once you open the little packets they make a mess and you have to use them.  Not like the pantene shampoo/conditioners that come in little bottles you can actually bring along when travelling.

Pobre salamini alli solito

A bit blurry but you can see it on the package.

cvs 5-18

CVS deal of the week...

1 Covergirl outlast lip color (comes with 2, one color and one sealant!) @ $7

2 Dry Idea deodorants @ 2/$5

Coupons used
-$2 any Covergirl Lipcolor
(2) -$2 Dry Idea
-$5 ECBS 

Paid $1.51 (tax incl) OOP

Earned 5 ECBs for later.

I might do the Aveeno hair care deal...I have a 2 coupon, but I am trying to hold out for the  Neutrogena or Aveeno "buy 15 get 5 ECB" deals they have so often.  I always use toner so I like to stock up.


We had free dinner at Captain D's since they have been sending my boyfriend so many coupons.  A free fish dinner with fries and a free fish sandwich.  Much better than I expected, though I try not to eat fried food ever.  :)  If you sign up for their "club" they will send you coupons too!

cheapie sunscreen

Right now at Walmart there are many many sunscreens on sale, from Neutrogena to Coppertone, the good ones that usually cost 8-12 each. They are on sale for $2 each.  There is a coupon for Coppertone $1.50 off!  I got a Coppertone faces oil-free for 50 cents!!!  I also bought another one to give to my younger brother who has oily skin like me, so this one is oil free.  I have to use sunscreen on my face because I put a lot of acne products

Also Venus disposable razors 3-pack are on sale for 2.50, so I used a $2 off coupon, and also paid 50 cents!

Tropicana OJ on sale for $2.73, bought 2 to use the $1 off 2.

Organix try-me-free - Received my 6.99 check a few weeks ago

The Natural Dentist - waiting on my $10 rebate to arrive, has anyone else gotten it?  That will make this FREE plus some (I paid 9.98 and got 8 ECBs)
