How I Save Money At CVS : November 9

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 $9.08 for $27.32 worth of items. I got $@^&$@# out of $1.59 because of being careless and not watching each item properly. I will definitely have to make up for that mess next week. I got a $10 gift card to add to last week’s balance so that was used to pay for this week’s items.

  1. Great job Lulugal! I also was able to get the L’Oreal this time around. I got to my CVS at 9:05 am (they open at 9am)and there were only 3 of the Revitalift left already! Craziness I tell ya!
