I have come to realize that it is totally unnecessary to pay top dollar for name brand merchandise at local drugstores. This took awhile to figure out and learn, but I think I have it figured out now and would like to share what I have learned to help others to learn how to pay only penny's on the dollar. As of 3/15/11 my 2011 CVS saving is $1233.10. That's over $120 a week in savings. That ads up to a whole lot of free stuff when playing the drugstore game. I will be posting my weekly shopping trips and would love others to post their cvs shopping trips as well. Any comments, feedback, tips or tricks from others are very welcome here, we can all learn from each other. By using my CVS weekly sales and combining them with coupons and ecb’s (extra care bucks) deals I have been saving hundreds of dollars every month and you can too. It’s a lot of fun, It’s so exciting when I walk out of the store with bags of stuff and usually only pay less then $1 out of pocket. I no longer pay for things like, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, deodorant, soap, laundry detergent, candy, gum, household cleaning supplies, over the counter medicines, and even cosmetics. Lets play!!
