The Queen Goes to CVS

I have been visiting this blog, Money Saving Mom. This woman is brilliant. She must spend all day looking for deals. She has this amazing way of shopping. Her budget for the week is 35$!!!! She shops alot at CVS for free and even gets them to pay her in CVS money. Incredible if you ask me.

For a while I have been reading Money Saving Mom for motivation, and finally I plunged in. We don't get the paper delivered, so I went out and bought a paper. And I clipped coupons.

And clipped

And clipped

And clipped

And it was totally worth it!

Since it was my first time, I had to pay some money. But let me tell you what I did.

I got all this, over $40 worth of stuff, for only $9.23. That right there is over 75% off the original price (and the $40 was after the sale prices too). Then I got $11 back in Extra Care Bucks, which is basically CVS money. I am super excited about this! Now next time I go, I can use my Extra Care Bucks and not spend money out of pocket. How about that?!

You should go. Check out Money Saving Mom, she'll tell you how to do it. But be careful. It's addicting!

If you do go, let me know about your deals!

Hey I was thinking...we should get together occasionally. We're not that far away are we??? We could meet halfway or something. After all, we pastors wives have to stick together :)
