Well, this week is shaping up to be very frugal because we have been home with a sick kid. I’m feeling grateful that this virus is not visiting us a week from now on the eve of Thanksgiving!
Meals have been pretty simple around the house this week. Tonight we will have some leftover turkey in gravy from the freezer, potatoes and fresh green beans. No trip to the grocery store required!
While my daughter lounges on the couch binging on “Geronimo Stilton” books, I have been getting ready for Black Friday at CVS, which actually starts this Sunday. You can preview the Sunday CVS ad at iheartcvs. This is one sale I hit every year, and it doesn’t involve camping out overnight or shopping on a holiday. If you are new to CVS-ing, you will need their Extra Care store loyalty card. When you use this card, it will give you access to the ExtraCash deals. For example, starting Sunday when you buy a box of Kraft Mac and Cheese for .99 cents, you get a .99 ExtraCash back coupon on your receipt which you can use at a later date on any products you want, except things like stamps and alcohol. (Um, you have to remember to get back to CVS to use the ExtraCash!)
Deals I particularly like this year include free after ExtraCash:
- Starbucks Double Shot or Refreshers
- Theatre Box candy
- Sparkle Paper Towel
- GUM toothbrushes
- Hershey candy bar
There are many more deals to be had. I have visions of stocking stuffers dancing in my head. You can also use manufacturer coupons! Let me know if you are a CVS-er too.
