How I Save Money at CVS: August 11

Welcome to How I Save Money. I am on a quest to see how much stuff I can get from CVS without spending any extra money out of my pocket.

I went a little bit nuts this time and ended up spending money out of pocket by not paying attention. I also don’t have all the pictures for this shopping trip because I was all frazzled and opened the packages and they look too messy to post pictures.

I know my ECBs could have gone a lot farther this week but my mother needs to monitor her blood pressure and she really wanted the item so I got it for her. I still have $10 ECB to play around with so it is okay.
