CVS Trip: Well Over 90% savings


Yes, that's right! I got all that stuff you see above for $2.79 (subtotal, with tax $8.14 ugh...so much tax in this state).  I think I am finally figuring out the CVS madness!

Want to see the break down of how I did it?

Pro tip:  If you are doing separate transactions, or shopping with someone else, put a basket or two inside the cart to keep your junk separated.  I even paper clip my separate coupons together and all that.  (Those CVS carts are so small, too!)

This is coming from a couponer who has worked as a cashier more than anyone ever should.  (Cashiering eats at your soul.  I don't recommend it for soft-hearted folks. haha)  Don't go to the register without "your ducks all in a row."  Just don't.
