Episode Three.... Brand New Store....

This episode finds our hero well rested from a few days alone with her One True Love, and ready to shop till she drops in her continued effort to save the Almighty Dollar.

Fresh from a great clearance score at Target Super Coupon Mom heads to the other side of the highway to take on the newest CVS in the area.

"WOW!" She exclaimed as she entered the bright and clean store. "This is shaping up to be a promising outing."

Without delay Super Coupon Mom grabs her handy shopping cart, and heads straight to the Magic Coupon Machine.

The Magic Coupon machine must have been in a good mood today, because Super Coupon Mom scored a $5 off $25 coupon. "Woo Hoo!" She thought to herself, "If I can create a pre coupon total over $50 I can use both of the $5 off $25 coupons that I have."

Super Coupon Mom immediately began to calculate her transaction in her head.

"What high dollar items do I need to add to the stockpile?" she asked herself.

Quickly figuring that she definitely needed to add laundry detergent to the stockpile Super Coupon Mom set out to build her transaction around that goal.

After a thorough scan of the CVS Flyer Super Coupon Mom sees that CVS has Arm & Hammer Laundry Detergent on sale at 2/$6.99 with a $2 ECB for each set of two. Since the transaction limit was three per card. Super Coupon Mom quickly added six bottles to her cart.

"That will be a great start to building up to $50, now I need to find a way to fill in the difference." She said to herself.

Quickly remembering the three things she knew she had coupons for Super Coupon Mom added 16 individual packs of Mentos Gum, 1-3 Pack of Mentos Gum, 2 Composition Books (On both kids school supply list), 2 cases of bottled water and 2 packages of cashews. Having finally achieved a total of $51 Super Coupon Mom exclaimed, "Perfect, now to the checkout to save the Almighty Dollar."

With a skip in her step our Hero heads to the cashier already feeling triumphant.

After handing the stunned cashier her coupons and ECB's Super Coupon Mom paid only $14 oop.

AHHHHH... But wait. That $14 came from the gift card that CVS so nicely rewarded me with last week for filling prescriptions with them. So Super Coupon Mom’s total OOP is $0.

Giddy with her victory Super Coupon Mom passes the time by counting her new ECB's as she waits patiently for the cashier writes up her Rain checks for some of the school supplies they were out of.

New ECB's totaling $13 and another $5 off $25 in hand Super Coupon Mom Heads home to rest and prepare for her next adventure.
