On this trip I paid $0.00 out of pocket for $10.96 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 had not been to CVS for a while because I was not impressed with the selection of items that gave back ECBs and I was still using up items from the stash that I had collected over the last few months. I want to start replenishing my stocks while things are on sale and I am down to the last tube of toothpaste anyway!!!!
