So everyone knows how I can't stand to spend money. I seriously hate it. Also, I do lots of things to save money like grocery shop once a month, use coupons, etc. Well, I have been reading abot all the great deals you can get at CVS. I finally decided to try it. I was leary because I hate going o lots of different stores, etc, and it sort of seemed complicated, but today was my day to learn the ropes.
I got the above items all for $13! Well, really I spent $23 out of pocket, but I got $10 back in CVS bucks to use on my next trip. Without the sale and coupons I would have spent $41.26. I got the 3 sunscreens (expensive Aveeno too!) for $7, the mustard for $.50, and the Lifewaters for free. The milk was regular price, but we needed it and since I was already there I went ahead and got it.
I had 3 more items I wanted to get; deodorant, Thermacare heat wraps, and 5 SoyJoy granola bars, but they were out of those items. I would have gotten all of those for $.99. Next time I know to go earlier in teh week.
I already know some of the things I am going to get next week and I get to use my $10 CVS bucks, so I am hoping to get more sunscreen andstuff for under $5. If I can do this right then we will not be paying for things like shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, etc, which will save us a lot on our already cheap grocery bill. Now if I can find te time to go to 3 different stores to get groceries then we would be saving even less. I doubt that will happen though, so at leatthis helps out some. I think I did pretty good for my first time, and after this I should be spending less than $5 a trip. Yea!
