CVS $5 Challenge

The challenge is to spend no more than $5 out of pocket at CVS using coupons and EBs (Extra Bucks). Make sure that you have a CVS loyalty card and scan your CVS card at a CVS scanner prior to taking your goodies to the cash register b/c you may save more money! Also, hopefully, you have bought a couple of the Sunday newspaper to get you going. See my previous post for a full preview of the CVS deals.

Plotting and Planning

The weather has been pretty nice just in the mid-70’s, although, I’m not use to the overcast in the month of April because we usually get the overcast in May and June.  At work, a little birdie gave me the heads up that they are going to ask me to reconsider going back to work at that office with the micromanager supervisor.  Aaaah, that means I can negotiate deal.  No offer is ever dead if there is something both parties want!  I liked what I was doing but it was the supervisor who was problematic.  We shall see what happens next!

We will get the Smart Source and a small Red Plum in Sunday’s newspaper.

On Sunday, I will stop by Rite Aid for the Money Maker Right Guard Dry Spray and Persil and maybe the Advil PM and GE LED light bulbs.  Nothing is exciting me at CVS for next week so I will skip CVS.

If your store was out of the FREE Canada Dry Ginger Ale 2 Liter then grab a rain check because CVS rain check never die!



It is being reported that the Revlon 2 Steps to Gel Envy Nail Kit is ringing up at $4.99 and producing the $3 Extra Bucks (limit 6)!!!  This means that you get the nail get for only $1.99!!!
