I love shopping, but sometimes I need to take a break from shopping at certain stores to keep my sanity and to keep up with everything else in my life. This is why I ended up taking a couple of weeks off from CVS shopping. There was not much I needed (if anything) from the last couple of week’s sales cycles, so I decided to stay home as long as my CVS extra bucks would let me since rolling extra bucks is how I save at CVS. Some how I did manage to shop free at CVS despite the lack of motivation, and I only had to pay $0.17 in taxes.

I took almost a month off from CVS shopping, but I had to go back yesterday, because I had four CVS extra bucks that expired on November 9th. I found a great CVS deal to roll my extra bucks on, andI kept my fingers crossed that they had it in stock. 
I know that my CVS usually runs out fast of the products on sale, so I went there yesterday morning. Of course there was no Smuckers Jelly on the shelf, and I immediately started looking for other deals. However, before I claimed defeat, I asked the manager and she kindly went to the back and found some Smuckers Jelly.
