Watch the video above to see my fourth straight week of CVS shopping and see how much I saved.  I’ve saved everything we got for the last 4 weeks, and at the end of video laid it all out. It covered my dining room table!

If you aren’t shopping the drugstore deals, I hope these weekly videos have helped get you going. See all the deals at CVS this week and get out and at least grab something. It’s best to start very small until you have things figured out.
