While there aren’t a ton of exciting deals this week at CVS, I couldn’t resist money maker makeup and money maker Nexxus!  I only started with $8 in ExtraCare Bucks so it took me a few transactions to get things so I wouldn’t spend much out of pocket.

Tip:  Don’t get caught up in just money makers.  If things you regularly use are running ECB’s you should consider them.  That was the Cetaphil for me.  I love the stuff and we have new printable coupons plus I had a store coupon… they were begging me to buy it.
