Sorry this has taken me so long to put together. I know so many of you have been asking me to create a list of items I purchase and what’s the most I will ever pay for them. Keep in mind , these prices may vary by region since some states don’t double. BUT…may of the products on this list I am purchasing from stores many of us have nationwide.
Hands down CVS is my FAVORITE store to shop in. I score the BEST deals here on household items, beauty items and all of my medicines. I haven’t paid for a Gallon of milk in over a year!The Key with CVS is to always use Extra Care Bucks you earn on previous purchases to buy new items that will earn you MORE Extra Care Bucks. 🙂

Schick Hydro 5 Refills $1.99
Schick Quattro for Woman (4pack) $1.99

One Last Tip: ALWAYS LOOK THROUGH ALL OF YOUR CIRCULARS! I have done this from DAY1 of couponing. Take an hour each week to sit down. Choose 1 Grocery Store and 1 drug store for that week and this is where you will do your shopping that week.
I don’t recommend going to more than 2 stores a week if you are new to couponing because it will be overwhelming.
If you have the time to shop at more than one store and you have the couponing and store deals down pat. Go for it! If you’re saving your family money. I say it’s worth it!
Hope this helps you guys out a little next time you are in the store wondering if the deal you are getting is a REALLY GOOD DEAL!
