Saved 97% on My CVS Deal Shopping Trip for the Week of 6/15/14 ~ Share Your Trip with Us (Link Up)


My CVS deal shopping trip this week took me to almost every department in the store:  health, beauty, personal care, household and groceries!  I pulled out a couple old rain checks for some free fruit snacks and mac & cheese that were free after extra bucks.  The great Bayer aspirin coupon from Sunday's paper combined with the CVS buy one get one 50% off worked out great for my mom's daily aspirin regiment.  More free toothpaste, toothbrush & deodorant for donating and another cosmetic item for my Christmas stocking stash.  Check out all the details below for coupons I used.  I could have a little less out of pocket if I had divided up the aspirins and used one of the smaller extra bucks, but I had miss-figured!  It gives me a little more extra bucks to start next week, so all is good.

Once I was what I would call a "Committed CVS Shopper."  I spent the time to get dozens of deals each week worth hundreds of dollars for just pennies on the dollar.  But currently I can only handle being a "Carry Over CVS Shopper," using my extra bucks earned one week on the next week's deals.  But I still find ways to save big on necessities for my family.  You may enjoy reading the five CVS Shopper Personalities to see which you are or which you may want to become.

You can find all of this week's CVS deals, as well as next week's, listed in the tabs under the Simply CVS banner at the top of this page.  Including posts for $5 & $10 Scenarios and The Best Extra Buck Deals of the Week.
