How I Save Money At CVS: 11 Jan 09

Today I paid $1.41 for $6.00 worth of items. I was not impressed with the selection for this week and there was really only one thing that I really wanted today.

I got a few coupons and an extra $2.00 ECB from the magic machine at the front of the store.

You may also notice that the image is a lot clearer than the ones I usually post of my CVS shopping and that is because I took the pic with my new digital camera. This was my late Christmas gift so now I have a real camera….no more fuzzy phone photos!
