Thankful for the bounty...

Last evening we stopped by our local CVS to use our ECB's that we received via email this week. We spent about an hour there in order to split our transactions to ensure that we spent as little as possible. Since our stock pile of shampoo/conditioner and body wash needed replenishing, we decided that was the best way to spend the funds.

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived and found great deals on VO5 and Suave body wash. The total retail value was $28.24, but after all coupons and ECB's, we walked out paying just $3.85.

I'm so grateful that we were able to get all that we needed, but more grateful for the Lords provision. 


  1. That's awesome! Does your cashier act annoyed that you do multiple transactions? I know that the cashiers at my CVS are kind of rude so I don't like asking them to do that. What are your thoughts on that?

  2. The cashiers are very kind at my local CVS. It took us an hour because we split our transactions and that allowed them to help other customers so that they did not fall behind with long lines.
    At other stores we do get stares like we are "vermon", it does feel uncomfortable, especially when comments are made to us. I do my best to ignore it, I remind myself that I have a duty to be prepared in our household and if others look down on us for that, then so be it, I just keep on plugging along. I'm comforted knowing that in the event of a financial emergency we will be ok because we already put in the hard work, so for me it's worth the stares.
