Whew, now you know why I end up with thousands of dollars in cvs stuff to donate! I keep the diapers and wipes and one tube of the arnicare for my hubby (super sports man!), oh, and the mouthwash….the rest goes in the cvs bin of stuff we don’t need….

When shopping at cvs, my trick is. take the thing I want, figure out how much I can take off the price by pairing it with other items that are free (cause the money is coming back) and a $ off coupon. This reduces the price of the thing i want and makes it more affordable, then we donate some of the excess….
