Yep. What are the chances? My last two CVS shopping trips have both turned out to be $.22. I’m guessing I couldn’t do that again if I tried.

My new method of couponing worked like a charm. I’ll admit, it required a little bit more work up front. But I’ve discovered that if I go to CVS without a well-organized plan, I end up spending much more than I intended and I end up completely stressed out as I’m trying to figure out which coupons go where and how many items I can get for the amount of ECBs I have without going over or under. That always seems to be the time that my youngest starts screaming and my oldest starts running around the store. (Please tell me I’m not the only one this happens to!)
I learned that I’d like to label some of the pages in my couponing book. But, I’m excited about this new method! Plus, I looked all stylish and stuff!
By the way, if you’d like to look as stylish as me, stay tuned for some sweet news later this week!
