      If you have a CVS near you, it’s a great place to shop. CVS has a reward program called “EB Bucks ,which are register reciepts that offer you cash off your next purchase. Typically they expire about a month after they are issued.

       CVS typically has a few items each month that are free, after your EB bucks. This month, aspirin was one of them. Pay $2.99, and recieve $2.99 off your next purchase.

       Many items will offer a little less in EB bucks than the purchase price. Colgate toothpaste might me $2.99, and recieve $1.99 back in EB bucks. But if you have a $1 off coupon, you toothpaste ends up being free.

       Each week, I shop CVS with my EB bucks. I find the items that offer EB bucks, and match them up with my coupons. Right now, I have $10 in EB bucks, so I will find the items offering EB bucks in return, and pay with my existing EB bucks.

       In the end, I hae very little money out of pocket, if any, and recieve more EB bucks for the following week.

       There are times when I get stuff I really don’t need, but it’s free. Right now, I have a stockpile of toothpaste and aluminum foil. I got it for free, and will continue to get it when I can. When I have too much, I bring my excess to church, and give it to families that need help. What the heck, if I can drop off a few toiletries, a few cans of soup every week that were free, I’m spreading the wealth an doing my part to help people though these rough times.
