Extreme Couponing?

Ever since I saw the first episode of Extreme Couponing, I was HOOKED! I watched a bunch of episodes and decided I was going to challenge myself like they do. So, maybe this isn't exactly extreme, but I thoroughly enjoy the fact that I only spent $3.19 (w/ tax) on almost $19 worth of stuff!

I'm an avid CVS shopper, and I have been since their beauty clearance last year! Basically, CVS has a beauty clearance sale twice a year, with markdowns up to 75% off! I'm obsessed with makeup, so of course, I can't resist. Plus, they totally take coupons! You can read an updated list of the CVS clearance here. She updates it daily and explains it pretty well. Now, onto what I got!




I had two L'Oreal coupons, one for $2.00 and the second for $1.00. I had two Rimmel Stay Matte coupons for $3.00 off each Rimmel Stay Matte foundation (which you can find online at Coupons.com & CVS.com). And I scanned my CVS card and got a $5.00 off a $15 dollar purchase plus a $1.00 off any St. Ive's cleanser. So, that's a total of $15 off my entire purchase!

So, here's the breakdown:
L'Oreal Concealer (Clearance): $3.07 - $2.00 - $1.00 = $.07
Revlon Concealer (Clearance): $2.82
Rimmel Stay Matte (Clearance): $1.75 - $3.00 = -$1.25
Rimmel Stay Matte (Clearance: $1.75 - $3.00 = -$1.25
Sally Hansen Polish (Yellow) (Clearance): $ 2.07
Sally Hansen Polish (Teal) (Clearance): $1.75
St. Ive's Scrub: $3.99 - $1.00 = $2.99

Basically, not only did I get the two Rimmel foundations for FREE, but they also gave me $1.25 (each foundation) to shop with! If you're looking for a new foundation, I definitely suggest trying this one out! Not only is it FREE, but you get money back and it's actually a really awesome foundation that lasts for hours!
