Here's my $5 CVSing for Charity Challenge shopping trip for the CVS weekly ad of May 4, 2014.  I had planned on getting some of the B1G1 free small boxes of crackers & cookies for mailing to sailors, but Sarah said they didn't have a good variety so she went with the 2/$4 sale.

Buy:   2 -- Keebler Cookies @ 2/$4
         2 -- Cheez It @ 2/$4
Use:   2 -- $1/2 Kelloggs, Keebler or Sunshine printable coupons from Kellogg's Family Rewards

Total Paid (excludes tax):  $ 5.00

Total Savings:  $ 10.26 ~ 68%

My $5 CVSing for Charity 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.

About my Charity Chest:  One of my favorite things about deal shopping is having more to share.  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.  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.
