Yes, you read that correctly. CVS ExtraCare Bucks were an answer to prayer.
You see, while my husband has found a job, it doesn't offer much to live on after insurance, rent, and utilities.
So we found ourselves facing the end of the pay period with no money and little food. In fact, the past few days I've literally been praying for food to feed my family. I'm not talking about not having anything we like. I'm talking about not having anything to fix AT ALL.
I faced today with a half pound of ground turkey, a box of couscous, and a few cans of veggies. That could be one meal, but I needed one more meal to make it until my husband gets paid tomorrow.
CVS to the rescue.
Yesterday, I received an email with a $3 ECB from CVS. At first, I dismissed it but then I realized that could be $3 in free food!
Today I scrounged up about $2 in pennies and proceeded to CVS.
Here is what I purchased:
Both items were on sale 2/$5. The total before the sale and ECB would have been $7.28, but I only paid $2.00 which is a savings of 73%.
This will give me 2+ meals.
1. I'll mix the Mac & Cheese with the cooked ground turkey with some canned veggies on the side. I "splurged" on the Deluxe because we are out of butter and milk; with the deluxe those items are not needed.
2. Fried sliced ham with couscous and canned veggies.
3. Left over ham with ?
So thankfully, God answered my prayer to be able to feed my family through CVS ExtraCare Bucks!
