I'm Still Here!!!

Wow, has it really been almost 2 months since I last posted anything? Yikes! Much has been going on during that time frame, though my mind is a bit fuzzy on everything. I will try to post what I can on separate posts otherwise this would be super-duper long.


The reason for this post is that I have recently been introduced to CVS via a blog here & there (mostly here) and am quite excited about the possible savings options. Now that I'm getting a feel for how it works, I'm all giddy!

You did great on your shopping trip and the post. Now you have enough EB's that you really don't have to invest much more out of pocket money at CVS. Keep on looking for FREE after EB items to inlcude in your order especially ones that you have a coupon for. You are doing great and I am glad that my posts are helpful.

Food Lion, Kroger and Walgreen's sell the paper all week long until they run out.

Be sure to ask at your stores if they do as well.

Thank you for the Dry Idea update. I edited my post to include the new limit and linked to your blog. Thansk again.

Are you going to CVS this week?

Other news...My church has asked me to teach a coupon workshop every Wednesday for the next 8 weeks. I'd really been praying for the opportunity to share all of this money saving information so when I was asked I was really excited.

I hope that you are having an awesome week.
