My CVS Run and.......A Giveaway!!!

Yesterday was my weekly CVS run. I am pretty much on a spending lock down so I can pull money out of my butt for uncle Sam. I have limited myself to about 5.00 per week OOP at CVS and this includes necessities. One of these days I will post a picture of my little stockpiles. I love stockpiling because these are the times when you need them. It is my belief that you should always have at least one months supply on hand of basic necessities IE, laundry detergent, toothpaste, TP, Soap, deodorant etc. My little trip reflected my budget! I choose to go to a store that was close to my Cardiologist's office to see their layout, nice store. I finally saw the trial size Crest white strips that every one is always talking about so next time that coupon comes out I know where I am going! Here is the run down of my little trip.

Purchased:

1 gallon milk 2.99

(2) Sally Hansen nail polish B1G1 50% off 7.03

Fusion Gamer razor 7.99


Coupons used:

3.00/2 Sally Hansen Q(RIB book from CVS)

4.00 fusion razor

2.00 cosmetic Q (from scanner)

4.00 ECB

Total OOP 5.74 Received 4.00 ECB net 1.74 spent! Not bad but If I would have had my Q's with me I had a 1.00 Sally Hansen Q that I could have used to sweeten the deal! I wanted to find the Renuzit triscents but they did not have them it would have been a MM.

Ok do key, now I'm sure you want to know about the giveaway huh? Well since I am such a CVS addict and I get a lot of great deals, I think I will put together a nice little package of my finds just for you! What will it include? It will include any or all of the following: Cosmetic's, razors, Healthy and beauty items ie lotion, facial cleansers etc. Perhaps some items to pamper yourself with! All I can guarantee(because I have yet to get these items together) is that it will be a nice little package that I myself would love to receive! Because of the nature of the items I can only ship to a US address . The contest will run until Tuesday 3/3 at 8AM MT. I will use a random number generator to pick a winning comment. You do not need to have a blog to win but PLEASE make sure I have a way to contact you, If your blogger profile is not public and you do not leave your email in your comment, I will have to pick another winner.

Ok here's what you need to do to enter. Leave me a comment below and let me know when you have been broker then a joker what did you do as not to go stir crazy at home? Valid comments only, all off topic comments will be deleted. Would you like extra entries? you can do any/all of the following for an extra entry each(please leave a separate comment for each)

I cleaned my house really well, and did loads of laundry.

Thanks

Jenn in AZ said...

Hi..found you with a google blog search about CVS savings!! So, we would go to KFC 10 or 15 minutes before they closed and see what kind of deal they would give us for the chicken they had left! Also, played board games and had read alouds with the kids (haven't delved that far into your blog to see if this applies!)...we read the Chronicles of Narnia, The Hobbit (etc.), The Secret Garden...lots of fun. Had people over for a potluck. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

Mary Stovall said...

I've been out on FMLA for about 6 wks. due to a serious health problem. And what I have done is...finally folded & put away all the laundry thats been piling up on top of the dryer. Did alittle early spring cleaning, and took advantaged of the double cents off coupons at K-Mart, even though the money has been tight(est) here since I'm out sick.
Sorry to ramble on...Please enter me in your "giveaway".

Lissa said...

This past summer was the worst! My library kept me sane.( They actually have new releases dvds and the wait is not too long plus I love to read books)

mar said...

I was so broke when I attended college during summer school, I had no shoes. I went barefoot to class. They did not serve food on the weekends so I existed on popcorn and water. I survived, it can be done.

5webs said...

The library has been a godsend for this family. Ours has first run movies, just-released books, and every magazine that you can think of. My husband and I take two huge duffle bags and load up every two weeks, and it is all FREE, FREE, FREE! Also, my kids get to watch new movies all the time, which they love, since we don't have cable.

Rita M said...

We take advantage of Netflix & TiVo and do our movie watching at home. The popcorn doesn't taste quite the same and we don't have a fancy surround sound system so the special effects aren't quite the same, but it does save us a lot of money.

Proud Wife of a U.S. Soldier said...

Hubby & I have been putting back money like CRAZY to save for the house we just bought. We've saved up an increible amount so we're continuing to live well below our means just in case.. yanno, for a rainy day. So when he's home (he's currently in Iraq) we woukd watch movies from our collection, make some jello (cheap) & scrounge up whatever we could make.

PAIGE said...

I'm so broke that i put my pennies in wrappers and am getting ready to make them crazy at the bank.

We have family nights that consist of playing board games and watching dvd's that we get (for free) from our local library. Thanks so much for this giveaway.

traymona said...

I have friend and family get togethers and grillouts and it's BYOE. (Bring Your Own Everything.) Nobody seems to mind. They're as broke as I am. We just like being together, broke or not. We have a boat for taking out on the river but it sat in the yard all of last year, (and most likely this year, as well), because we couldn't afford the gas for the van to tow the boat or the gas for the boat itself.Maybe I ought to pull the boat into the backyard and we can sit in it and ACT like we're on the water. After a couple of cocktails, we might actually forget we're on dry land. And if anyone fell overboard, at least they woiuldn't drown.
traymona[at]aol.com

KR312 said...

Used to eat out several times a week. Now, we do all meals at home and hubby is becoming quite the cook. Eliminated cocktails on the beach which was an every weekend kind of thing. Basically, we stay home, clean the house, take care of the yard and then GO TO SLEEP. No more going out and partying the night away.

MOMFOREVERANDEVER said...

had game day and made homemade pizzas and watched videos- used redbox code..wait I guess we are broke alot becuase we just did that

susan1215 said...

I read, surf the internet, watch movies on cable or if I get real ambitious I clean the house.

Alisha said...

When my husband and I first got married we were BROKE. Broke-Broke. We watched staticy TV via bunny ears , ate tuna noodle casserole and walked across the street to walk around the park. Hard times but fun times.

tutugirl said...

Ok, this goes way back to my college days but we used to sell our plasma so that we could go out. I could sit and do my studying while they had me hooked up and then I was set to go out afterwards. Nowadays, we'll just rent movies and pop popcorn. I prefer the later.

CAmom04 said...

Geocaching! This is a much tighter year for us financially and I discovered geocaching from a Christmas letter we received from one of our friends. There are literally dozens of these little treasure chests hidden around our area and thousands more within short drives. The kids LOVE the activity and it is a great way to kill a few hours without spending anything!

Last summer we were at our worst point with a car that broke down. My husband was out of work for a couple months with no pay. We spent our summer home watching tv and bringing the kids outside to play. We only left the house if we got rides to places. We walk down to the grocery store together as a family carrying back groceries since the car was broke.

When I'm really broke and trying to find ways, *any* ways, to make some money, I fill out surveys, enter sweepstakes, and click on "click-for-points" emails. Not only do I gain things, but it is also very entertaining sometimes!

Pat said...

I began reading again. I also started gardening.

Betty N said...

When we were first married, I worked part time and my husband went to school. We ate cheaply but my husband never acted like he missed anything. We had a young child so we spent time with him. We did have a small tv to watch. He did homework while I did the bath and get ready for bed with our child. We went to bed early and got up early. We really didn't feel like we were missing a lot.

Todd said...

Fortunately I live near a library. Free movies and books a plenty.

donna gonzalez said...

well, i have been visiting the library alot more these days- catching up on some great reads, i also surf the net looking for coupons, and freebies-anything to save some money-as someone who is not working, every little bit helps.

kathy55439 said...

I watch movies form the Red Box for a dollor or I get books on tape for a dollor or two......

We check out movies and books from our local public library. Our tax dollars are already paying for it, so it's free entertainment.

Anonymous said...

When you are broke the best thing you can do is entertain yourself until the money comes flowing in again and you do that by playing board games, or spending time with family passing along stories from work or your day..when you get that money CVS is the best..don't you love their CVS savings card and deals...awesome!

We have rented a cabin in the winter too. They give us a real deal about $25 a day.

DARLA KIDDER said...

Right now my husband is out of work because he got laid off due to the economic crisis and we had to move into a smaller and cheaper house to rent and i had to apply for welfare for cash aid ,food stamps and medi-cal . right all we do since we dont have a car is watch t.v at home .

Sharon Harmon said...

The time I was poorer than old Mother Hubbard with bare cupboards was when I first moved out of home after graduating college and got my first real job. I was a freelance stenographer and the paychecks from lawyers didn't start coming for a few months, so I lived on ramen noodles and water for 3 months! I had moved out of state and didn't know anyone, so I found an ad in the paper for free kittens and went to the farm where they were. I had to chase down 2 wild kittens!! I didn't want just 1 because I thought it would get lonely when I was working, so I got 2. oh, my gosh! They were so wild, they climbed the curtains, raced across my bed when I was sleeping, and jumped off my second-story balcony!! After I finally started getting paid, I didn't eat ramen noodles for 15 years! lol! Thank you for this great contest!

This past years has been a living hell trying to stretch a dollar let's say trying to stretch a penny. What we did during the summer break with two tweens and no money. We listened to our local radio station to give a secret location of where their promotional van would be for the day and we would race to it to get free tickets to the movies or free dinners at CiCi pizza. We got lucky several times and was able to have a semi normal summer break.

joannaonthelake said...

I was broker then a joker when I purchased my first home! The mortgage lender we used estimated our closing costs way too low and when closing day came we ended up owing almost $2 thousand dollars more than what the estimated costs were. The mortgage company had omitted a couple of major fees and we were too inexperienced to catch them beforehand! Needless to say it put us in a pickle of a situation where it literally took us over a year to get that money back into savings so were not totally wiped out! In order to not go stir crazy at home we spent our time scouring flea markets and garage sales to pick up items we desperately need for our new home, and we needed so much at that time. We were able to purchase a new sofa at a garage sale that looked like it had barely been used and we got that for $40! We also purchased tables, lamps, cookware, dressers, all at garage sales and truly never spent more than $5-20 on those items each. We also spent a lot of time doing our own painting of rooms and when we were not at work at our jobs, we focused on becoming proficient at being do-it-yourselfers! Now were have been living in our home for about 8 years and we are still trying to make ends meet by frequenting garage sales and flea markets, but now we are on the hunt for baby and toddler gear of all kinds! We now have 3 young children one of which is 6 months old and money is tight again! Thank you for the opportunity to enter.

I've always taken out DVD's, books and books on tape from the library to stretch my entertainment budget.

idahodad7 said...

I go to the thrift store and buy books for a quarter.

Others beat me to it - go to the library and get dvds.

The Internet (enough said), video games, board games, movies, TV, library books, walks, crafts, scrapbooking, gardening, writing, music, doing surveys and stuff like MyPoints so that I can add to my budget in other creative ways!

Awesome giveaway, thanks so much!

I reread my book collection and watch my movie collection. Clean a lot. And well, go stir crazy anyway.

College years-so broke we would sneak in to see concerts, had to go on food stamps and our only entertainment was having sex.Car we bought for $16 literally held together with duct tape and string. Have had periods of this on and off so we usually watch tv and make meals out of what we can find in the cupboards-haveto be creative.

I follow you

sat and watched the worst tv imaginable - infomercials

When I am broke and am in need of some fun I go to the dog park or the dog beach with my labrador. They are both free and not too far. Going there also de-stresses me when I'm feeling the budget pinch. Thanks!

I took advantage of the public Library, free, books, magazines and videos.

pattycake said...

I gardened and watched TV in my "broke" years.

I have a CVS right down the hill and I use it all the time. You know, just going for milk, and spend $25.00. I love the store. It has everything.

We love to go hiking nearby when we go stir-crazy! It's fun and great exercise for the whole family!

TXsunlover said...

We have always done things on the cheap! We love to go to the walking trails, the playground at our city parks, go to museums on "free" days, go to the zoos on $1 days. Its easy to find fun stuff to do for next to nothing.
Thanks for the chance to win!

My parents recently lost a lot of money, so we are feeling it right now. I enter these sweepstakes so I feel like I can give my family the life we used to have. I know I can never get my home back for my family, but I feel good if I can win some cool stuff for my family. Ps. I'm 13 years old!

right now...our main food staples are now beans, taters & corn bread - reminds me of growing up...we shop kroger only because they triple and double coupons...haven't brought cvs into the fold, but must do that straight away for our cleaning and paper supplies. we went this weekend and i marched right back in and got my $$ on paper towels (basic $15!! - if you can believe) - what a rip off. all meds are now at kroger on the $4 & $9 plan. trinitygsd at yahoo dot com

sharonjo said...

Our relatives lives close by so we go visit them! Thanks!

Pam said...

I was broker than broke when I was in college. I'd just sit and eat an order of french fries while everyone else had meals out. After all, it's the company that counts, not the food!!!
