Tackle It Tuesday–CVS

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

This week:

My tackle for this week has been learning how to shop CVS and use Extra Care Bucks to save big time on things I’d normally buy anyway. Here’s where I first talked about it.

I don’t have a before and after picture because a before picture would be my empty table. 😉 So here’s what I got this past week and then my running total on cash spent out of my pocket. It is really, really, really amazing!

My running total last time looked like this:

Spent cash: 82.35
– ECB’s rec’d: 58.43
$23.92! That’s 71% off of my total spending!

After adding these two trips:
Spent Cash: 110.13
-ECB’s rec’d: 83.43

$26.70! That’s 75% off my total spending!

  1. Impressive!!!

    I keep reading about the deals one gets CVS shopping, I wish I lived closer to one.

    Thanks for the comment!

    I noticed yesterday that I still have some christmas bells and ribbons left up on my porch.

  2. Great job!

    I love this part of your post:

    …”save big time on things I’d normally buy anyway”…

    This is KEY! So many folks I know will go and grab the deals at CVS or Walgreens but they don’t stop to think about whether they’d have bought those items were they not “on sale”. 😉

    Keep up the great work!

  3. Wow- those CVS cards are worth it!

    I’ve left my Christmas tree up well into March before. It’s so pretty- why not enjoy it, I always say.

  4. One of our best friends is a CVS pharmacist. ;O

    I love Dave Ramsey. Do you see him on his TV show? We watch him.

    You are totally awesome, Mick, and you can come organize my house next. I could use some energy and help…
