  • The Drugstore Game in June: Zero out of pocket at CVS

    That’s right! Thanks to ECBs and free gift cards that I earned through MyPoints, won from My Good Cents, and received for new prescriptions, I spent zero dollars out of pocket at CVS during the month of June.

    The amazing thing is the tally of things that I picked up this month, all for free: lots of toilet paper and paper towels, Lysol wipes, Listerine SmartRinse (regular Listerine devastates my mouth, but this stuff is great), bandages, batteries, toothbrushes, diapers, wipes, and more.

    I saved over $150 by shopping at CVS. That’s the amount I would have paid at Target during my pre-Drugstore Game days, and that’s assuming the best price scenario with sales and coupons.

    I didn’t even include in my $150 savings the stuff that I wouldn’t have bought if it wasn’t free or almost-free at CVS: things like deodorant, cotton swabs, cookies, and more. I’m now finding a use for these items, giving them away to friends and family, or donating them to a good cause. And I just have one thing to say . . .

    I love The Drugstore Game!
