$5 & $10 Scenarios for the Weekly Ad of 2/17/13

Thank You for this post. I have been wanting to coupon shop at CVS starting with no ECB'S and never could find a post for it.

Great, Teresa, glad to help. My daughter puts this together each week and I usually post it around noon on Friday. So even when you have a few extra bucks you can still follow her scenarios, just use the ones you have for lower out of pocket.
