I was in need of some new makeup and decided to see if I could find the lowest cost way to go about it and still find brands that I know I do not have a problem wearing. I scoured the internet and sales and decided to go with CVS. We already have prescriptions filled there so I had a membership card for discounts.
I was given a $30 gift card from a friend so I wanted to keep my costs as near that as I could.
I combined a $3 coupon from CVS with a sale on Maybelline and L'oreal products.
My total for the make-up was $46.25 - $3 coupon so $43.25 plus they gave me $10 in ExtraBucks rewards that I will use to pick up bathroom supplies. I came really close to my $30 and overshot by $3.25. A total I was quite happy with.
While I was there I also picked up 4 packages of small note tablets marked down to 50 cents each.
For $2 we got 6 5"x8" tablets and 8 3"x5" tablets. These are ideal for school and for keeping in the car for notes and messages.
