CVS Trip - January 5th ... $9.86 OOP



CVS has a number of good deals this week and, with almost $45 in ECBs to roll, I planned my transactions with an eye toward rounding out my current stockpile. My husband and I hope to donate between 50-75% of our CVS purchases monthly to our church's local outreach program.

Starting with $44.94 in ECBs, I purchased $151.96 in merchandise, was out of pocket a mere $9.86, and still have $12 ECBs left for next week.
