I prefer to go at this time because the weekly ad has just started and sale things are usually in stock.
Also my favorite CVS manager, Cole, is working then. He is also a couponer and knows exactly how deals are supposed to work.
Everything else was on sale and bought with coupons.
My receipt says I saved $100,06 which equals 100% and I spent no actual cash- just ExtraCareBucks from previous week's and coupons. I got back $17 in ExtraCareBucks.
I blog about my deals and some of you have commented asking where I keep it and what do I do with all of it.
First, we live in a pretty normal Oklahoma home that has quite a bit of room.
Second, I do share these purchases with my family and with others in need.
Our hall bathroom has a deep, floor to ceiling linen cabinet.
I didn't photograph the baby wipes, they are on the top shelf of the toy room closet.
I can fit more up there and I think paper towels are a deal next week at CVS.
Remember- I plan ahead by looking at the future CVS sales at IHeartCVS.com
The lower cabinet is deep and holds about a dozen bottles of laundry detergent and a few bleach and fabric softener.
The bottom shelf has a few bags of laundry pods and assorted laundry products.
The rest of the CVS stockpile is in our big, walk-in master closet.
On one top shelf is more toilet tissue.
The other items are in containers on this tall shelf in the master closet.
The bottom shelf is dark so I put a lantern to help light it up for the photo.mm
On the left are shampoo and conditioners,
In the middle are mouthwashes
On the right are liquid soaps and lotions.
And I forgot to photograph the tray of face moisturizers and makeup wipes.
My tips for stockpiles
I rarely spend much cash.
At CVS, I focus on sale products that give ExtraCareBucks and then use my ExtraCareBucks for future sales.
I do almost all bargain shopping concentrating on just CVS. I see great deals on line that people get at Walgreens, Dollar General, Publix, Target, KMart. Pick one store available to you and focus on it.
Buy stuff you will use.
Join a Facebook group that posts for the store you shop.
And have fun!
I like that couponing stretches our income but I also consider it a hobby and a game.
