CVS Hiatus

Okay, so I have money, I just don't want to spend it.

I'm taking a break from CVS for a week or two. I've looked at the sneak peek ad for next week, and nothing is jumping out at me as a stellar deal. There will be a freebie (after ECBs), but it's not something I care to make a trip for. Can you believe it??

It will be kind of nice to take a break, really. As with anything else, you can have TOO much of a good thing. I've been CVS-ing for a good three months straight, so a short hiatus is well-deserved.

Even though I don't spend much at CVS, I'm trying to limit my spending across the board in order to pay off our debt sooner. Fewer store visits means less unnecessary spending each month. Less spending means extra money in the budget to go towards our school loans. And, in the end, no school loans and other debts will mean we can live off one income come Baby Time! See, there's a long-term plan here.

No money, no problems.

Hi Katy,

I've been reading your blog and I find it very interesting. I do have a question for you: where do you get a sneak peek for the week at CVS? I found the monthly booklet online but I would love to get the weekly too!

I'm curious to see if I'm taking a break too!

Hi, Lyse! Thanks for dropping by!

The sneak peaks can often be found at www.hotcouponworld.com/forums/cvs/.

Look for the next range of dates in the title of the "threads." Next week's ad will be 9/28-10/4, and the thread will be called "sticky", because it's still applicable and getting comments.

Hope this helps!
