I'm Getting the Hang Of This CVS'ing

Here's my latest CVS bargains. Granted, it's not as much as others who post a whole table full of finds, but I'm getting there. I had to go today because I hadn't been in about a month and my Extra Care Bucks expired today. I couldn't let free money go to waste!

My total out of pocket for everything here was a whopping .33! I know how it works, but I still can't believe it. It is so much fun! There's such a joy in knowing you're able to get things for your family without breaking the bank.

Now, I did come away with no ECB's to carry over to next week, but that's because Sweetie has been asking for those vitamins for a couple weeks now so I used ECBs to get them. If I would have been on the ball last week they were on sale. Oh well. And the lamp? Well, that was on clearance and our girl's desperately needed a lamp in their room and I really can't justify going out and spending anything extra on one right now, so I used the remainder of my ECB's to get it for them.

Overall I'm very happy with this trip. I learn a little more each time I go and it gets more and more fun all the time!

That is a great deal! I wouldn't even compare it to other people's stash-- you got A LAMP! And Vitamins!

Isn't CVS so much fun! That toothpaste deal is what really set me up a few weeks ago. Till then, I just couldn't seem to get as much stuff for as little money as others did, but all those ecb's from the toothpaste really helped! You can see my latest CVS trip if you scroll down my blog. It's the picture of a bunch of CVS stuff, lol. Great job on yours!

Way to go! I am a big CVS fan myself!

I find that , while CVS is good at making some things cheap, others aren't. Like envelope and notebook prices?

I'm sorry but if I can get a 60% discount just by buying at my local Walmart, why would I CVS?
