CVS is looking a little better this week. There are numerous freebies and a few things that are not free but great prices.  I’m always happy when there is a Bayer Meter deal!  I think every household should have one for safe keeping, then after you have your one, as you continue to coupon give the rest to homeless shelters, medical missionaries, free clinics etc.
If you see anything else in the store please share!shoppinglist1

Remember to get and use your CVS Bag Tag for $1 ECb every 4th shopping trip!

This is not necessarily what I will do in the store, it is more an example to show folks that you really can use CVS to get most anything you need for pennies on the dollar!

Why do I put it in numerous transactions?
This is to reduce my out of pocket cost.  If you group this all together this would cost you up front $24.92 rather than the total $1.98 I spent.  Your goal is to break it into transactions that equal the ECB’s that you have in your hand.

Do they care about the many transactions?
Not if you are a nice shopper.  Get it all in your buggy at one time, go to the corner of the store and get your transactions ready.  Seperate items into groups and even put the right coupons with them so that you will be fast checking out.  As you check out if anyone gets behind you in line, finish the transaction you are on and step to the back of the line.

I personally think CVS has the best cashiers ever.  Most every one of them is out to help you and will cheer you on.  If they have no idea what you are doing, then they will ask at the end of it all “How did you do that??” and be eager to learn!
