Labor Day Shopping

Joe and I decided to take a little shopping spree today since we had to run out for cat litter at Walmart and I needed to pick up my prescription at CVS and drop another one off. We did find some great deals too...
1st Stop, CVS:
Picked up my prescription and used a coupon to get that FREE $25.00 CVS Giftcard in the picture.
2nd Stop, Office Depot:
We dropped off 3 used ink cartridges, which will earn us $3.00 ea towards a gift card using their rewards program. Total Made: $9.00
3rd Stop, Michael's:
We stopped into Michael's and used the 50% off coupon only good today towards a bottle of lamp oil. $4.99 - 50% off Coupon + $0.15 Tax = $2.64 Not a great price, but it is getting harder and harder to find it, Walmart doesn't even sell it anymore :-(
Last stop, Walmart:
We needed some cat litter so the cheapest overall place to shop for that is Walmart. Unfortunately the kind of litter we really wanted (Yesterday's News), they no longer sell, so we ended up with some Tidy Cat (not picured) and used a coupon on it. Other deals at Walmart included...
2 Carmex Lipbalms $1.04 ea - $1.00/1 MC x 2 = $0.04 ea = $0.08/2
4 Meow Mix Wet Cat Foods $0.48 ea - $1.00/2 MC x 2 = 4 Free + $0.08 Overage
Waterproof Bandaids $2.88 - $0.50/1 MC = $2.38 (However, I saved $2.00 just by buying them here at Walmart instead of CVS, where they were $4 and change a box)
Cat Litter $6.50 - $1.00/1 MC = $5.50
Total with Tax ($0.51): $8.39
On our way out the door at Walmart, we stopped to pick up our FREE Redbox DVD using code T46T3Q7. If it is returned by 9 pm tomorrow night (Tues) they will not charge you for it, making it a FREE rental :-)
