I Just Kicked CVS's Butt!

I tend to be a cosmetics hoarder... not because I enjoy hoarding, but I love to play around with eyeshadows, liners and my mascara. So whenever I can get this stuff inexpensively, I stock up in a million different colors.
I also think I'll be donating duplicates to a place that collects dresses for girls for prom so they can have new, unopened makeup to beautify themselves for the big event.

Lately, CVS has had a ton of makeup on clearance, up to 75% off! Matched with manufacturer's coupons, this has made for the most amazing deals.

I ran around like a chicken with its head cut off right before I had to go and babysit my three loves. In the process I hit up 2 different CVSs, 2 different Rite Aids and Shaws. Here are some highlights

CVS #1
7 HIP L'oreal eyeshadows - reg. $8.49/ea 75% off - $2.12/ea
2 CVS Cocoa Butter sticks - $.99/ea

- $5/2 L'oreal face cosmetics X 2
- $2/1 L'oreal face cosmetics x 3
- $1/2 any CVS brand skin care

Total: $1.04
Saved: $62.53
I'm very fortunate that Massachusetts charges tax post-coupons; therefore, I only paid tax on the .98 subtotal at the end of my order, rather than the original, before-coupon prices.
