My CVS Shopping List 9/18-9/24

CVS is great for stocking up on household and beauty items.  I have been able to find free or close to free items such as, shampoo, razors, toothpaste, etc.  CVS usually has a couple of totally free items(after Extra Care Bucks) each week.  After shopping CVS for just a few weeks, you can build up your supply of Extra Care Bucks (ECBs). You can also usually score some money making deals at CVS using coupons.  After collecting ECBs for a couple of weeks, you can mostly eliminate your out of pocket expense by purchasing items using ECBs.  Thus, you are buying items for "free". 

You will have out of pocket expenses when you start out, but can then roll your ECBs each week.  I didn't believe it at first but, it really does save you money in the long run. 

Here's my list for this week:
Gold Emblem Candy Corn, Autumn Mix or Pumpkins 8oz $0.99
ECB: $.99 wyb 1 (Sun-Tues ONLY limit 1)
Pay $.99, get back $.99 ECB
Total: FREE

Buy $10 worth of Nestle products and get $3 ECB (limit 1) Buy (4) Nestle Fun Size Candy Bags  $2.50 ea
