CVS Deal Shopping for Sharing Shopping List for Week of 5/25/2014

CVS Deals for Charity

Here's my $5 CVSing for Sharing Challenge Shopping List for the CVS weekly ad of May 25, 2014.  Variety of destinations this week for the items I am finding deals on.  M&M's will go to sailors deployed, toothpaste will be saved for my Operation Christmas Child stockpile, and the cereal will go to our church food pantry.  I am loving the CVS cereal sales lately for donating.

Not a massive amount of savings this week, but I'll still able to get a nice selection for way below retail price.  By rolling the CVS extra bucks from the first transaction to the second I have less out of pocket cash expense.

The two match-up posts here at Simply CVS I use most to find the best deals for my charity shopping are:
These help me spread my $5 further.

My $5 CVSing for Sharing Challenge is much like my $50 CVS Gift Card Challenge, but with a bit of different twist.  I will be budgeting $5 each week total for shopping at CVS for items to donate to local or global charities or others in need of encouragement.  I will be emphasizing food as much as possible, as I often get free health & beauty items already.

About my Charity Chest:  One of my favorite things about deal shopping is having more to share with others.  Not only can I get great things with coupons and CVS extra bucks, but by saving on my own budget I have more cash to share, too.  So whenever I can get a fantastic deal on an item that my family does not need I pick it up and tuck it away in my Charity Chest until I find someone who needs it.   Another way I have more to give is by earning free CVS gift cards thru Swagbucks.  I have been able to give thru local charities and my own church as well as thru national ministries like Operation Christmas Child.
