On this trip I paid $0.00 out of pocket for $6.48 worth of items. My goal for 2011 is to not spend any money out of pocket, while using coupons and ECBs to get tons of items at CVS, with an initial gift card of $50.
I basically got one item free today because the total cost of the ECB and the coupon I used were more than the cost of the item!!!! I lost $3ECB from last time because they expired since I had not been to CVS in a long time.
