My CVS Trip

Last night my husband and I made a late night trip to CVS. I am new to this whole saving money at CVS thing, but I wanted to try it out. This is what I purchased

3 packs of Huggies diapers – $2/1 coupon for each

4 jars of skippy peanut butter – $1/2 coupon for each

4 jars of Ragu- $0.55/2 coupon for each

2 packs of Energizer batteries -$1/1 coupon for each

1 Arm and Hammer toothpaste- $1/1 coupon for each

1 Cottenelle toilet paper – no coupon for this one but we were out of tp!

My total bill was $63.40

After coupons and Extra Bucks I paid $31.40 out of pocket. I realize that is high for those who go and manage to spend $2, but I was able to earn $17 in Extra Bucks for my next trip to the store. Plus, my husband and I are having a great time planning our trip and scouting deals. I am also totally excited because last night we found out that CVS accepts commissary coupons! I am hoping that shopping at CVS will help me meet my February grocery goal.

Menu January 30th- February 5th

I shop during the week so my menus usually run from Wednesday to Tuesday.

Here is what I have come up with for this week.

Wed- Pizza

Thurs- Roast

Friday- Beef Burritos (using leftover roast)

Saturday- Spaghetti

Sunday- Tacos

Monday- Pasta

Tuesday- Leftovers

I got great deals on noodles, sauce, taco shells and beans this past week so I wanted to incorporate them in our menu and save money for my $600 month.

Deals at CVS

Crystal has introduced me to shopping at CVS. Last night we signed up for a CVS card and started shopping. Since I am new at this I went for the Pepsi deal. Three 12 packs of Pepsi for $10. That is not really a great deal since I try to purchase Pepsi for about $.20 a can, but I had a $4 off coupon, plus when you purchased $20 worth of Pepsi products you receive $10 in ECB’s. (Extra Care Bucks), which you are able to use on your next purchase. Essentially I paid $1 per twelve pack once you factor in the coupons and ECB’s. The only way to get a better deal is to quit drinking soda, which for now is not an option.

When I first read that you could grocery shop at CVS I didn’t believe it. I shop at the commissary and it is really hard to beat their prices on most items. If you save coupons and watch the sales at CVS you can save money and sometimes even get groceries for free.
