Money Maker at CVS -- My Steals Today

Here's what I got at CVS today. I'll need to make another trip to get all I wanted, but to maximize my ECBs I just made one smaller purchase to start with.

Old Spice or Gillette Body Wash 10-18 oz. $4 = $4 Ecb (Limit 2)
Buy 2 Old Spice body wash at $4 each
Use BOGO coupon from the 6/6 P&G
Pay $4 OOP, get back $8 ECB
making this a $4 Money Maker! Yay! 
**Note that the ad says limit one, but I have confirmed that it is actually TWO**

Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power or Manual Razor  $9.97 + 5 ECB (Limit 2??)
**the ad says Limit 1, but my receipt shows otherwise...I'll check later**
Buy one razor at $9.97
Use $4 coupon from 6/6 P&G
Pay $5.97 OOP, get back $5 ECB
Final cost: $0.97!!

Did you know that Starbucks offers Free 5lb bags of used coffee grounds for free?? Why would you want used coffee grounds, you ask? They are great fertilizer for your garden and even house plants. You might want to call ahead to make sure your store participates in this program. Free fertilizer. Woohoo!!
