ABC’s Good Morning America had a feature on Walgreens and CVS Pharmacy on January 24 explaining that buying groceries on sale at drug stores can be very economical. Diehard CVSers already know the benefits of their extra buck program, sales and the combining of CVS and manufacturer coupons on household budgets, but to the uniformed it is a new concept.  Who would think you could buy groceries economically at a pharmacy?  Not me.  I shopped at CVS for years before I actually started looking at the groceries as a viable means of saving money. As my last three trips indicate, I have learned that to really save on my grocery budget I need to focus more on grocery deals at CVS Pharmacy.
