Save Money Monday 2

Week 2 was not a great week to go couponing. Not a whole lot of deals out there. None that I wanted to go after at grocery stores. So I only hit up CVS and Walgreen’s this week.

Couponing, CVS, Chicago

I was running low on detergent and shampoo so I was scouting out the best deals I could find. I got the Purex 3 in 1 for .99 each with a $3 coupon from 2/20 Red Plum. My Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner were .49 each after coupons and extra care bucks. I finally decided to get a bag tag from CVS so that every 4th visit I’ll get $1 off.
