How I Save Money At CVS: August 14

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.

I needed some Neosporin because mine ran out and I cut a patch of skin on my neck (different story!!!). I only had a $10.00 ECB coupon so I needed to get something else to make up the difference so I would not lose all the ECBs.

I love colored inks so I decided to get a pack of sparkly colored pens that I can use at work and at home.

  1. Actually I was picking at something small and decided to take some drastic measures to get rid of it…and then it morphed into me missing a patch of skin. Ouch.

  2. Isn’t it funny how addicting CVS-ing can become!?!

  3. It is really too addicting because I now find myself poring over the ads to see what I can get.

    If I don’t go to CVS when the new ad comes out I feel like I am missing out on something.

  4. Man, that’s too cool.

    There is a CVS about 3 blocks from my house. I go there all the time.

    Do you have any other tips?
