My first post!

Okay, so I know that there are MANY blogs out there catering to dealseekers and moneysavers, but I've had a few requests asking how I get the deals I do, so I'm going to set up my small corner here with just a little bit of information on how I shop, where I shop, what I get and how I do it. This is mainly for family and friends that have asked me about saving money and so I can share my rewards with them. :)

Since I've been doing a lot of shopping at CVS lately (mainly because they are close to my house and I take trips right near there often), I'm going to introduce you to a few deals you can still snag there this week (4/18-4/24). Here's some deals I found worth mentioning.
