Still doing CVS deals, reading and sewing

I’m still shopping at CVS, usually once a week but sometimes I skip a week if I’m busy or the deals don’t work for me.
I went yesterday bought these on sale items using ExtraCareBucks, CVS coupons and newspaper coupons. 
It takes a bit of planning but I save so much, it’s worth it to me. 

I opted to get Email receipts so it’s easy to show them here. 
I spent $9.78 cash on all the products in the photo and got back $20 in ExtraCareBucks for my next transaction.  
I rarely buy food with coupon deals but I do get great deals on household and personal care items.
There are many coupon experts on YouTube and Facebook and instagram.  I usually view a few of their posts to see all the details on deals and then I plan my shopping around their advice.  


I just finished this series of books and I enjoyed them so much! 
I bought all my books used from ThriftBooks.com  
I’m happy with their quality, prices and rewards.  

Sewing- son Bobby got a super deal on an older camper for his family and he’s redoing the inside.  
He used some of this cork-looking vinyl fabric to change out inserts in the cabinets.  Then he asked me to sew some pillows with his leftover fabric. 
The 2 bolster shaped ones are for armrests on a bench seat and the oblong one is because that’s exactly how much fabric was left after I made the first 2.  
I like the way the fabric looks and it looks so nice in the camper.
My sewing machine sewed it all just fine.
The difficult part was handsewing the first 2 pillows closed.  I used a thimble and pliers to pull and push that needle. 
For the rectangle one,  I added a zipper closure and that was somewhat easier.  

I’m still fiddling, trying to get my posts to look like I want them to. 
I’m hoping this one publishes right..........

But whatever, I’m done today and need to go put the fresh sheets on the bed, vacuum and prepare a meal or too.  And maybe sew and continue reading the first book in another series.  

Have a great day everyone ❤️ 


  1. I have recovered large pillow forms for camper and using a zipper is by far easier than trying to sew by hand. Good luck to you!

  2. Your CVS trip had so many good deals! :)

  3. Good deals at CVS. I love to read Susan Wittig Albert's Chyna Bales series, murder mysteries set in Pecan Springs, Texas. I love the characters and Chyna's herb shop.

  4. You are so good with the CVS game!

  5. I always enjoy reading about your daily life! God bless you!

  6. Thanks for the book recommendations. I will be looking for this series at my library.


Thank you for dropping by today ❤️
Because of so many spam comments, I’m forced to moderate all comments. I know it’s a bother. I’m sorry but y’all don’t want to read their marketing or trash either. I’m sorry 😐
