How I Save Money At CVS: October 18 and 19

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 ended up going to a CVS out of town because the CVS where I live did not have the items in stock. Now I did not make a special trip just for this but since I had to be in that other place I decided to stop at that CVS.

  1. I thought they have some very good deals this week. The GUM toothbrushes were a great deal combined with coupons. We stocked up on some of the crayola ones for the kids stockings for the holidays.

    I actually did go back and get some of those toothbrushes. I did not like them for my use but I figure they would be great for guests. 🙂

    Also, I can throw one in an overnight bag and forget it..and never have to deal with that ‘did I bring a toothbrush?’ problem because there is now one in each bag.

  3. I also bought the toothbrushes, but was only able to get 3, they were already out of them when I got there Monday morning!

    I did the diaper deal too, hopefully soon my youngest will be potty trained and I won’t need to be looking for these deals anymore!

  4. I really have to go to CVS again. I haven’t been in months.
    I’m going to have to start checking the sales flyer again.
