How I Save Money At CVS: 1 March 09

Today I paid $1.75 for $11.75 worth of items. I have not been to CVS for a while because I have not been impressed with the items on sale lately. I decided to go today because I have ECBs that were going to expire before next weekend and I did not want to lose the money. Luckily I got things that I really wanted, instead of having to buy more toothpaste just to get the ECBs back.

I messed up by not having my CVS gift card with me because then I would not have  put the $1.75 bill on my credit card. Arrrgh!!!
