CVS Trip - Teacher Gifts  

Posted by: Julie in


I picked up these items today from CVS. I'm going to use them as end of the year teacher gifts for my kids teachers. Each gift (including bag) cost me $1.56 each. Here's what I did:
CVS is having a special where if you buy 3 items of the Essence of Beauty line you get $5 in ECB's. My store had several of the body wash, hand wash, hand cream and lotion on sale 50% off. I made 2 transactions.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Transaction #1:
(2) Essence of Beauty Hand Soap = $2.50 each
(2) Essence of Beauty Hand Cream = $2.50 each
(2) Essence of Beauty gift bag w/ tissue = $1.49 each
Total: $12.98
Paid with $10 ECB's from the baby deal last week
Total OOP $3.12 (includes sales tax)
Got back $10 in ECB's

Transaction #2
(2) Essence of Beauty Hand Soap = $2.50 each
(2) Essence of Beauty Hand Cream = $2.50 each
(2) Essence of Beauty gift bag w/ tissue = $1.49 each

Paid with the $10 ECB's from Transaction #1

Not too bad, huh? $1.56 each for teacher gifts.
Frugal gift giving, PRICELESS!!

What cute gifts, and great deals! I'm sure the teachers will love them :)

Great idea!

I am having a baby shower for a friend next weekend and I am hoping to score some items for free or cheap at CVS for that this week.

Great job! What a great way to gift to others without spending a lot.
