CVS Haul 29 August 2011

On this trip I paid $0.00 out of pocket for $10.96 worth of items. My goal for 2011 is to not spend any money out of pocket, while using coupons and ECBs to get tons of items at CVS, with an initial gift card of $50.

I had not been to CVS for a while because I was not impressed with the selection of items that gave back ECBs and I was still using up items from the stash that I had collected over the last few months. I want to start replenishing my stocks while things are on sale and I am down to the last tube of toothpaste anyway!!!!

  1. Thank you! Extra Care Bucks, I now know what it means! Nothing out of pocket, that is amazing. I have a hard time finding CVS coupons…it would be nice to have them as I live right next to one.

    • I do feel good when I get a great deal with my coupons. You should see how much some of the other hard core CVS shoppers save.
