Time again to get prepared for CVS. These deals start Sunday 3/8. It is a better week that the past few weeks I think. While there are not many completely free deals there are lots of deals that are less than .50¢. I like getting to use the cents sign. I have included my plan for this week and I have put together a plan for anyone with a $4 off $20 coupon, scroll down for those scenarios.

If you are new to “CVSing” and the Extracare Buck system before trying to decipher all of this go read the getting started guide.

My Grand Plan. This is my plan for what I will get with the coupons that I have. I am spending more out of pocket this week than I have in a long time at CVS, but I have been saving a B1G1 Coke coupon for an ECB deal so we are going to use it! I break up transactions to decrease my out of pocket costs and I do go and get everything at one time and then check out. Please go to the back of the line in between transactions if a line forms!
