Share Your CVS Shopping Trip for the Week of 10/10

I learned best how to CVS by reading what others did and how they did it on their own trips.  So I am going to put up this post each week for readers to share their CVS shopping trips--large and small.  If you blog you can leave a link in the linky below to your blog post about this week's CVS trip (link directly to your
shopping trip post--and ONLY CVS trips, please). If you don't blog please share in the comment field.  Thanks for sharing.

Way to go, Deborah!! I have read of other stores having a lot of food clearance--nothing at mine. I have one shift manager that is always trying to get me to buy their clearance stuff--she'll let me know if it is marked down and the signs aren't up yet, too.

Great trip, Madeline, with a fantastic $/$$ coupon--I never get those. Don't you love walking out with more extra bucks than you used?

Madeline said...

Yes, love getting more extra bucks!
Also, forgot to tell about this deal. That $5 off any Halloween purchase that was coming out the machine. I got 2 bags of the snack size M&M's they were 2/$5 and on each bag was a .50 coupon off the bag, so I threw in 2 candy bars that were on sale for 2/$1. Paid .04 oop. Got my treats for Halloween night thanks to CVS!!!

Cheryl @ Simply Shoeboxes said...

Wow--that was another great transaction, Madeline.

Cheryl @ Simply Shoeboxes said...

That was a great trip, Crystal! I need to get braver about spending my extra bucks down. I know I miss some good deals because of that. But I never get the $/$$ coupons any more and rarely get to increase my extra bucks so I have been shopping conservatively. I think seeing what others are getting will help me see what I am missing :-). Thanks for sharing.
