bargain shopping

I'm still shopping at CVS but no more than needed.  I've built up more than adequate stockpiles so unless I really need something or there is an excellent deal,  I don't shop.  
I read on a CVS Facebook group that CVS is clearancing a number of cleaners and laundry products 75% off.  I stopped at one CVS in Midwest City Oklahoma yesterday.  They did not have much but I'm happy with what I did find.  With the sale and using $6 in CVS extra care bucks,  I got 3 bottles of Wisk laundry detergent and 2 bottles of cleanser that I use on our white kitchen sink for $3 total.  



I previously posted about Schoola, a new online company that resells gently used and like new clothing as a fund raiser for schools.  
This is my Schoola link
If you shop through it, you will get $15 off your first order and free shipping and I will get another $15 off another order. 

   Update -    I'm sorry this changed but I was just on the Schoola site and it seems to only be free shipping when you spend $50 now.  


I've got 2 orders from them and both have been even better than I expected.  

If you don't have children to shop for, they also sell adult shoes and clothing for women and men.  


My first order were these 2 hoodie jackets, I got them for about $1. 



My 2nd order was for these 6 pieces- they cost me less than $4 for all.

  1. Rhonda I love your blog! Your CVS deals has me reconsidering shopping there. I am closest to Walgreens on the corner and CVS is a few miles away, but within my area for sure. You've encouraged me to learn more about their ECB program. I love your lists and in your other post the picture of your 5 grands is gorgeous. What a blessing! Thanks for all of your frugal tips and projects. So industrious and living well! xxxColette

    1. Thank you Colette for all the sweet compliments. :)
      Walgreens has good deals too as well as other stores like Dollar General. I just prefer to concentrate on one store for deals.

    1. Jess, other stores have good deals too. My suggestion is to look on Facebooj for message groups about stores that are available to you and see if you can learn about their current deals.

  4. Wow.. great deals!! I did my groceries for the week and am sitting at just over $200.00. Hopefully we'll only need a couple odd things throughout the week. No fabulous deals, but meat wasn't *too* badly priced this week, so hubby will be glad to see something other on table than chicken! ;) lol!

  7. I love all the deals Rhonda....you always do so well. The last time I ordered from Schoola I ordered me some clothes this time. You can find adult size clothes under the teen section. Maybe they will have free shipping again. Have a great day!

    1. Thank you Judy. I have to go figure out how to put my new stockpile of Tide away now. Thankfully my husband cheers me on when I stockpile, I am sure it would make some people crazy.
