CVS

As some of you may know, I love CVS. I can't help it...they're always giving me free stuff! They have this extra care bucks (ECB) program that rewards you for buying certain things, then you can use your ECBs toward future purchases. It takes a little planning, but it can be worth it. Sometimes I even make money!

Here's one scenario that I got last Sunday:
5 - 32oz. Gatorades
1 - Colgate Advanced Toothpaste
1 - Bottle CVS brand Vitamin D pills

I had a coupon for the toothpaste and $10 ECB from last week. My grand total was .04 cents and I got $8 more ECBs. So basically I got all that for $2.04. Not bad, huh?

It takes a little money to begin with, but I usually keep between $5-$15 in ECBs and don't have to spent much out of pocket for the stuff I get. This website is really helpful. Check out the CVS for newbies link. You can even see upcoming weeks' flyers. Happy shopping!

I'm so glad I converted you to CVSing! You're doing better than I am--I haven't been in weeks! But, I don't really want to stock up on a lot of stuff since we are moving. Still clipping my coupons though!
