My 7/4 CVS Trip – $51.15 for $9.15 or 82% Off

One of the questions that people ask most often is how to get the best deals on paper products.  Toilet paper and paper towels can be very pricey if you’re just buying them when you need them, so I always watch for the best sales and then stock up.  Usually, the best deals can be found at drugstores like CVS and Walgreens when they combine a sale with an ECB, RR or other type of rebate.  For example, this week at CVS you get a $10 gas card back wyb $30 worth of certain products, including Bounty paper towels and Charmin toilet paper.  It’s never enough in my opinion to just use a coupon on paper goods, I always wait until I can combine coupons with a sale AND a rebate.  Today I bought $51.15 worth of products for $9.15, or 82% off after paying with $9 ECBs from last week.  Here are the deals:
