Of course it beeped requiring the manager's key because it was a high amount. There was an older laker couple behind me that were buying a bottle of booze and beer. I apologized for the hold up but they were ok with it. When they saw me only pay around $1 for my whole purchase and saw my register tape was as long as I am tall they couldn't believe it. The wife literally said Woooohooo honey you know you're stuff!!!! I was laughing by then. Her husband asked me outside if he could see the receipt.....he did this when he saw my savings for the year on that card was well over $800...which is low around here I know.
$800 sounds amazing to me! I am up to about $350. My family thinks I am the queen of deals. Next to some of you I am small potatoes, but they don't need to know that!

The way you explain things and take the time to help everyone out is very much appreciated!
Thanks, that's so sweet of you to say. I only like writing about CVS deals with the people who post here. Feels like I am in a room surrounded by old and new friends.

I am not good at grocery store couponing but I pretended it was like a drugstore trip to get through these last few days, I only did the deal and that's it. Grocery stores overwhelm me, I like small stores like Aldi where I can memorize where everything is.

Me to. There is one site I use fro Publix, called Publix for pennies, but right now I have it worked out so that I get most of our stuff from CVS or Sam's. I haven't seen Target or Walmart in months. Almost all of the kid's school supplies were free at CVS or part of my Sam's (or cheap at CVS stuff)

Carnation Instant Breakfast deal

My CVS had Carnation Instant Breakfast discounted to $1.42. There is a coupon in today's redplum for $1 off 2 products.

Carnation Instant Breakfast is located with the diet and nutritional supplements.

$5 off $25 is beeping. The cashier this morning said to me that it's so stupid to send out coupons that beep and pushed it through.
I bought the revlon makeup, 2 cover girl products, irish spring wash, and a Bic Soliel razor. Before coupons it was over $40. I paid $6 out of pocket and 3.94 of that was TAX . The guy behind me in line told me good job!

  • If you have more than 1 computer, take the quiz on a different computer and a new code will be generated, print one for each card you have.
Lana it sounds so good and TIA for always helping us.

I really want to do this but I can't even see / find the rotating sections! When you say rotating, are they actually moving / changing on the site? Because nothing is moving or rotating on the site. Is it my computer yet again? Could some please tell me *specifically* where to look? Thanks!

LanaJae,
YOU ROCK GIRL!!!
Thank you so much for telling us how to delete the flash cookie! WooHoo!
I did it. It's easy peasy (and I was worried I'd screw something up! ) and I got a different # the second time too. YAY!!
I'll be heading out soon for some CVSing.
BTW, DH is on the road all day long. So I have made it his mission to collect a ready fill book at each CVS he sees. So far he got 3 for me on Friday and none of them were from our local stores.
I'm making him hit the locat ones this weekend. Good reason to give him to take his motorcycle out for a ride.
Thank you! Thank you! LanaJae

Good for you for saying something! I probably wouldn't have said anything and then would have thought about it all night letting it get to me!
