My CVS Deals for the week

I now have enough shampoo and toothpaste to last 6 months! Still lacking on the toilet paper department, but I'll get caught up. There are several boxes of kleenex, probably two months worth. And I have all of you to thank for showing me how to work the sales, with a coupon and then add a cvs coupon. I was so happy I was doing the grocery hound dog dance!

My Pantry is filling up fast with toiletries and food. I have enough dishsoap and dishwasher soap to last approximately 6 months.

I'm good for probably 3 months on peanut butter and a couple of months on Ragu and pasta. My freezer has quite a bit in it and we are no longer living paycheck to paycheck on groceries. The only thing I still run out of is perishables such as bread and milk. Need to get those today. It is a good feeling to go to the pantry and it's not empty.


  1. Where's the photo of the bounty... I always like seeing a pic of your deals.

  2. lol. I'll take one later today and post for you!

  3. I agree...its great to look in the pantry and not be able to see the back of it! Everyday, I just take a peak of it and smile!

  4. Wow, I read this and all I can say is wow. I really, really want to do something like this but am so intimidated by the time I perceive it taking to get started and then maintain. You are an inspiration.

  5. well we will have to forget about the photo on this one. Cant get my camera and lapatop to communicate. sorry guys.

    amiyrah I love the pantry not being empty. It makes me feel secure in a way.

    sniz it doesnt take that long to look at the cvs weekly flyer, clip a few coupons and go pick up what you need. Dont be intimidated.
