day 098 – CVS Deals

Growing up, my mom would often come home with bags from CVS as she excitedly told us of how many items she received for having only spent a few dollars. She got so into it that she even had me sign up for a card so that she could get the extra benefits! Now that I’m on my own, I wanted to try my hand at it. It involved a couple hours with papers sprawled absolutely everywhere around my living room floor, two cups of coffee, and some inquisitive looks from my husband…but I finally figured out how to use the printer.

The couponing all came together after that ;)

With the help of Coupons.comMoney Saving Mom and some other resources, I managed to get

$68.90 worth of stuff for only $19.85.


I came home and found a 25% coupon from CVS in my email, so it could have cost me even less…especially if I had ExtraBucks (EB) leftover from any previous transactions!

Stay tuned this next week for a more in-depth post on CVS ExtraBucks  and how you can earn free stuff. But for now, here is the step-by-step process for what I did to earn these items…
