For anyone that may have missed my previous posts involving this scandalous utterance.. FULL PRICE is the F word in my house.
I have returned! After avoiding CVS Pharmacy for a few months, (I was annoyed with my particular store after a few negative experiences) I decided to just let the past be the past and move onward toward the savings! I started small and this is what I bought:
4 bottles of Dove Shampoo/Conditioner, 12 oz ea
2 bottles of Soft Soap Hand Soap, 7.5 oz ea
6 Renuzit Air Fresheners, 7 oz ea
2 bags of Hershey Chocolate Nuggets, 12 oz ea
Had I not used my CVS store card and coupons, I would have paid $52.62 for the above items. After using my store card and coupons, my total for the above was only $16.68. I saved $35.94 and also received $6.00 in Extra Care Bucks to use on my next purchase.
I was very happy that the Hershey chocolates were on sale (and I had a coupon!). I just barely avoided a disaster ~ I was down to my last few nuggets for my candy dish.
But WAIT! The savings did not end there. After the pharmacy, I headed out to the grocery store... where I invoked the F word three times (technically six times).
5 boxes of Betty Crocker Suddenly Salad (pasta salad)
5 packages of Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs, 10 count ea

*We are planning a big BBQ for the 4th of July so I was happy to stock up on hot dogs, pasta salad, and cokes.
*I hadn't planned to buy milk today but received it FREE after purchasing specific General Mills products.
