I don't normally do the whole drug store shopping thing. I did when I first started couponing, but quickly acquired a year's supply of toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, etc. I don't really care to store more than a year's supply of anything, so I dropped off the drug store scene.
Then there are the every so often crazy food deals that beat the regular store. That was the case this week at CVS. I paid just $16 for all of this:
6 DiGiorna Pizzas ($3/2 tearpad from WinnDixie x 3)
3 12 pk pepsi products
Used: $1 green bag tag, $3 American Greetings reward on the soda, which brought that total to $6.60 AFTER taxes.
I then received another $4 reward which I applied to the pizzas...for a total of $10.07 AFTER taxes.
It came out to just about 80 percent savings! I didn't get any rewards back from the pizza except thanks from the family.
I also always buy cheese pizzas and we top them at home. It's just easier that way.
