    Nice money saving! I glanced at the picture and thought it said ‘Durex 3 in 1′ haha I was trying to wonder what the other uses were!

    That’s truly some great savings, thanks for sharing. We should all use coupons more.

    I am a huge fan of both CVS and Walgreen’s. Not really for the savings bit, but because they seem to do a good job of having a little of everything in a smaller store. Really, really tired of the far away parking and aircraft-hanger sized stores at WalMart’s and Target. Takes a half-hour just to buy a bar of soap.

    So, stuff like this is just gravy :)

    I always used expired cvs coupons and extra care bucks my friends also. Check your store and see what their policy is. Most would take them, rather then loose customers.

    I always save money at CVS. If you go to a deal forum like Slickdeals, people always clip coupons. For the unenlightened, it could save you big!
