I did not think I would be able to make it to CVS this week, as the air quality has been bad due to wildfires, and I have not been able to go out, since the kids and I all suffer from asthma. In the end I did manage to swing into CVS, before I went to Publix, but there was not much I wanted or needed, and I had to roll over $2.74 Extra Bucks which were expiring. Since I could not find any good deal to use them on, I ended up buying a curling iron on clearance. It is one of those things that I have wished for for a while, but I have not been able to find a good deal. At $3 it was hard to beat.
My Final CVS Totals – The Gift Card Challenge Week 10.

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.
