Making Money at CVS

There weren't a whole lot of things that I wanted to get from CVS this week. I did the Coke deal and then I used some monthly deals to make more ECBs for the future. Boy-howdy, do I love CVS! I am so excited about my money makers this week! I am stocked back up on ECBs and can't wait for the June deals to start!

Here is the breakdown minus a picture (disappointing I know) because I am too lazy to dig all the stuff back out and take a shot!

$1/2 Dr Ps x2 - 2.00
$1/Tums - 1.00

I could have used more ECBs and paid nothing out of pocket but I wanted to save them.
