$5 and $10 Scenarios for CVS Shopping with No Beginning Extra Bucks for the Week of 12/12


Here are some deal scenarios for the CVS weekly ad for the week of 12/12 for shoppers just starting their CVS shopping adventure or who do not have any or many extra bucks on hand and do not want to spend much cash.  There are scenarios for $5 out of pocket cash and $10 out of pocket cash.  

Beginning CVSing and building up extra bucks to keep them rolling week after week takes time.  By investing just $5 or $10 a week for the first month to six weeks to get the extra bucks built up (if you did not spend them that week on other sale
items) would allow a shopper then to keep rolling that $20 to $50 of extra bucks each week into new extra bucks.  It is like spending the same money over and over again.
