CVS Deals for the week of 3-16 to 3-22

It was a pretty good week for me at CVS even though I'm frustrated about not being able to find ANY store in my area with the vitamins, toothpaste, or razors on the shelves. I think maybe they stock the shelves at the first of the month and then never stock them again. But that's a discussion for another day.

The first picture above includes diapers, diaper cream, 5 Johnson's Buddies Easy Grip Soap, 5 mouth washes, toothpaste, 3 deodorants, and 6 bottles of shampoo. The second picture is 2 boxes of Hershey's Pot Of Gold candy, 2 bags of jelly beans, 2 packages of large plastic eggs, 3 chocolate bunnies, and 4 Russell Stover Cream Eggs.

Cost before coupons -- $75.05
Coupons & Extra Care Bucks -- $68.10
Out of pocket cost -- $6.95
Extra Bucks issued for future use -- $25.94

Yes, I find that with some stuff you really have to hit them the first of the month. Especially if it's the free stuff. Frustrating, I know. You'd think they'd know they are going to run out and keep the shelves stocked, but oh well.

Maybe they only give each store so much of certain items and once they're out, they're out. I've had to go to more than one CVS in the past to get what I needed.

I've had to go to many different CVS stores to get stuff, too. Luckily there are quite a few in my area so I don't have to drive too far and just stop by when I'm out anyway.

Ok, Lisa, I am going to quit ignoring CVS even though I don't like them as much as Walgreen's! You have me convinced! Thanks!

Wow, that's amazing! I tried couponing for a month and saved $50 once off a huge grocery bill. That was it - takes a lot of work!
