Share Your CVS Shopping Trip for the Weekly Ad of 4/1/2012 ~ No Shopping for Us This Week

Simply CVS Gift Card ChallengeNo shopping for me this week still, and Elizabeth is not sure she will make it so I thought I'd just put up a reader's trip post for you all to share with us your trips.  We are finalizing our packing (and my Mom's) and will be moving Thursday (wellllll, I don't think we will be all the way ready, so will be moving small stuff still over the weekend, too).  Elizabeth is in physical therapy for her shoulder and Sarah strained a muscle near her knee moving boxes last week and with my weak, painful muscles from Fibromyalgia we almost make a whole person trying to pack up 30+ years of stuff for four adults and my mom's, too. lol

Did you find any good deals  from the CVS Weekly Ad of 4/1 to purchase?  Are you taking the Simply CVS. CVS Gift Card Challenge?  If you blog about your shopping trip I'd love for you to put a link to your post (a link back would be appreciated, but is not necessary); and if you don't blog please leave a comment below.  I really enjoy seeing what others get and it is a great way to learn how to CVS.  I learned from reading and reading and reading what others did. I am still learning!

If you have a linky on your blog and are linking up here, add "link up"
to your title below so readers can link up at your blog, too.
    PLEASE NOTE:  ONLY link up to your CVS shopping post directly, all others will be removed.  I have had readers mention too many links are not to CVS shopping posts.
If you are doing the challenge please note that in your link title below.

    I agree, Kayde, not much, but then I see others who find all kinds of goodies to buy. I always find it interesting that weeks that don't interest me someone else will find exciting.

    Nice little trips, Valencia & Lisa. Those little trips are just as important as the large ones in keeping up a stockpile and saving.

    I thought this would be a no shop CVS week then I heard about the $4ECB printing with every 3 Kellogg purchase and all the Special K products are 2/$5. I've done 3 transactions now rolling each 4ECB wiht other ECB's on hand to pay for the items. I've paid nothing out of pocket, plus I made the $20 spending for the Savings Star $5 rebate.

    Go CVS!

Paid $8 for 6 shampoos and got the $5 ecb from the garnier. #2 bought the Venus razor for $12 minus my $2 coupon and the dawn soap $.99 with $.50 coupon minus the $5 ecb from transaction 1 = $7.10 plus got $5ecb for the razor and a $4 coupon for Allegra. # 3 $29.49 Allegra coupon 1 $4 from trans #2, minus my $5 ecb and plus the $7 coupon from the paper$ $13.49. Total of $27.
