profit on both transactions combined: $9.79 ♥
notes:the store only had 2 of the dawn hand renewals in stock, but they allowed me to use my coupons on the regular dawn bottles. :)

today's profit looks impressive, but thats only because i had already bought most of what i needed for the p&g deal previously. if i add up everything i spent at cvs for the whole week, the total cost comes to $3.07. that includes a gallon of milk that i needed which costs $3.29 on its own, so no complaints here!
