If you’re just tuning in, I’m mentoring Hayden in The Drugstore Game. If you’ve always wanted to play but weren’t sure how to get started, follow along with Hayden as he becomes a Drugstore Game Master. You can read all of the posts in this series here, in reverse chronological order. Please read my Drugstore Game Primer and Common Sense with Money’s FAQ to get an overview of the Drugstore Game and definitions.
At CVS I see:
Puffs $.88. I think there was a coupon in the newspaper a few weeks ago, I’ll check for sure tomorrow. I have a few boxes stocked up from a Walgreens deal a few weeks ago so if you don’t think this is a good enough deal I can wait on them.
Colgate Toothpaste $2.99 2 ECB. If I don’t have any coupons I can wait on it. I’ll check for sure tomorrow. There is a 2/5 2 ECB deal next week which might be better if there are any mfc coupons.
I don’t see anything I can’t live without.
Only the Puffs 3/5 but since I don’t have any RR to work with I’d rather purchase them at CVS or Rite Aid.
I’m also looking for some Tums (gen) so I’ll probably just buy those at Rite Aid because I have the Rx [prescription gift] card.
I usually stock up on tissue when there are moneymaking deals to absorb the cost, or as a filler, since tissue is rarely totally free. I’ll have to take a look at the ads to see if there’s a way to craft a deal like that to minimize the cost. I didn’t list the details, but I mentioned here that I worked 6 boxes of tissue into my Walgreens deals last week, paying $2.21 plus tax for the tissue plus a whole lot of other stuff. That’s how I try to buy things I need, but it doesn’t always work out that way. Hopefully, we can make it work for Hayden!
