Not only has my kids been sick this week, but I have been sick as well, so I have spent most of the time at home or fighting my way under the strong South Florida sun to pick up and drop off kids from school. This means that I did not get to do grocery shopping until today, and of course my CVS was out of almost everything, so I had to settle for rain checks

My final CVS Totals – The Gift Card Challenge Week 5.

The $25 CVS Gift Card Challenge

Cheryl at Simply CVS has challenged me to see how far I can stretch $25 at CVS Pharmacy, and she has provided me with a $25 CVS gift card just for this purpose. With the CVS shopping tips, coupon match-ups and CVS deals alerts from Simply CVS, I hope to be able to stretch the CVS gift card far.
