CVS Trip today! Spent $4.23 out of pocket and have $6.37 in ECB to spend next time!!!


This is the best CVS trip ever! I literally got paid to shop there today! :D  I went in with a few coupons but most of all, CVS had this awesome, fabulous sale of all sales where they had an unprecedented 20+ freebies! 

I started with no ECB to begin with and really no plan because you never know what they will actually have in stock so I walked through the store and picked out all of the FREE after ECB deals they had. It was literally like a scavenger hunt!!  

Here's my breakdown: (Mind you, I stood up at one of the empty registers and wrote out my scenario in the store. lol)
