How I Save Money At CVS: November 27

I am on a quest to see how much stuff I can get from CVS without spending any extra money out of my pocket. Today I paid $31.78 for $72.35 worth of items.

I could have paid $9 less if I had checked my ECBs better but I got careless again. I got the ECBs mixed up with some other CVS store coupons and forgot to use them on the first transaction.

The good news is that I now have a ton of ECBs for later use.

Transaction 1

Item: Aussie shampoo and conditioner

Price: $2.99 each

Total coupons used: $10 off $50 purchase + $7.50 MFR

As you can see all of the above items were FREE after ECBs so if I had that amount stocked up then I would not pay for those items.

  1. Thank you for sharing useful information.I save plastic bowls from cottage cheese, yogurt, cream cheese, etc. They are great for organizing small items like nails and screws, or can be used when painting. Same for coffee cans. I save my daily newspapers and then wet them and roll into logs that I use in my fireplace in the winter. Freecycle is another great thing! I also clean and reuse plastic water bottles. I save my large plastic bottles for my greenhouse though. I will fill them with water, paint them with black spray paint and use them as a heat sink when the weather gets cold and my greenhouse needs warmth. When it warms up and the bottles are not needed, I use the water from the bottles to water my plants.
