And the only reason I spend any length of time in a grocery aisle is to get the best deal.
And to get the best deals, I use couponing, rewards cards, and more.
One of my main go-to saving sources is CVS. When you match the Extra Care Bucks deals with coupons, you do a great job saving and making money. (If it's actually something you need that is!)
For instance one week, I purchased $67.86 worth of items for $27.90. Doesn't sound that great except that I then received $20.00 in ECB back which means in the end I only paid $7.90 which is an 89% savings.
The following week I purchased $60.28 in stuff. I paid $3.15 out of pocket after coupons and that $20 in ECB from the previous week. Then I received $16 in ECB back which means CVS paid me $12.85 to take $60 of stuff home. Over 100% in savings!
Now I have $16 to spend next time.
Fairly recently, however, I've learned a few more ways to make money on things I purchased. Come back on Monday to find out more details on that!
