Crystal, I had the same issue. It turns out the shaving cream isn’t on the list of Aveeno items for the $8 Extrabucks (I checked the CVS web site after I got home). I still did well–I had $4 in coupons, a CVS 20% off coupon, a CVS $3 off $10 of shaving items, and paid for my purchase with part of a $10 CVS card I got from the “Buy $30 of these items . . .” promo. I had plans for the $8 Extrabucks, though, so it messed up my plan when I didn’t get them. Oh, well . . .
You never know until you try! And you still had lots of other great savings 🙂
How do I get the healthy essentials coupons to print? When I click on “get your coupons” it just goes back to the email my coupons page.
Gretchen, have you ever done a post about how you organize your coupons? I’d love see your suggestions. You seem so good at it.

Great prices on the candy! I was in my CVS today and saw a 50% off sign, so I price checked the regular/plain M&Ms they had. They were still $2.++ (over $2 — cannot recall specifically) and showed as regularly being $4.++ (over $4) on the scanner. That didn’t even make sense to me — never seen them over $4 a bag, even at CVS! I went to Target and got some for 86 cents each, plus had a Target coupon to use. YAY for inexpensive M&Ms!
Wow, your candy was cheap!!! I like to pick up some for holiday baking 😉
