Today I paid $0.79 out of pocket for $3.79 worth of items. I love this ACT mouthwash because it restores minerals to your teeth. My dentist is pleased with my teeth so I guess it works.

I got a $1 ECB from the coupon machine at the front of the store, as well as $10 off $50 worth of items. I amnot sure if I can find enough to fill that order between this week’s sales and the upcoming ones but it would be a blessing if I could combine that with coupons and make a killing.
