How I Save Money At CVS: September 5

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. Once again I was able to go into CVS and NOT buy any toothpaste…..although the urge was very strong.

I have decided to keep including pictures but they will now be original pictures from Amazon.com. That way if you wish to purchase any item but do not want to go to CVS then you can order from the Amazon site (and I will get a percentage of your purchase as a referral).
