How I Save Money At CVS: 4 April 2010

Today I paid $0.00 out of pocket for $5.98 worth of items. I was almost out of shampoo and conditioner so I decided to get these sale items. After I paid for them I realized that there were coupons in today’s paper (which I did not buy since there was only one insert) that might have made my total be even less. I wanted to use up the ECBs I had before they expired so I went ahead and got the items anyway.
