As always, the Frugal RI Mama, Karen, has this week's deals and match-ups at CVS. Check out her full post here.

If you're new to shopping at CVS, please read my CVS 101 post here.

This week there are many items on sale for 3 days only - today (Sunday), tomorrow (Monday), and Tuesday. I'm going to star the items in Karen's list that are on sale for these 3 days only!

My Transaction
I don't have any expiring ECB's and since I don't have any kids, the fabulous school supplies deals don't appeal to me. I'm going to skip this week but recommend that anyone with kids take advantage of these great deals for back-to-school!

Newbie Transactions
If you're new to CVS definitely read my CVS 101 post before beginning. The scenario below assumes you have no ECB's to start with - if you do use them to pay for the first transaction and you'll have little (if any) out of pocket costs!

The scenario utilizes multiple transactions because you want to use your ECB's earned in one transaction to pay for the next one. If there is a line, just head to the back of it after each transaction so no one grumbles at you!

This newbie scenario is good for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday only this week - it gets you 10 items for $3.00 out of pocket but you're leaving with $2.98 in ECB's to use in the future!

Buy 1″ Vinyl Binder, On Sale $3.00 Get $3.00 ECB’s (limit 2)
