More Ways to Get Cheap and Free Flu Shots 2012

UPDATE: Please check out this piece on Parade.com for the most up-to-date information on free and cheap flu shots. The CDC started tracking flu outbreaks this month, with a few cases being reported nationwide. Since it takes two weeks for your body’s immunity to kick in after you receive a flu vaccine–shot or intranasal–you still have time to get some protection against the flu. You also still have time to find a cheap flu shot or a free flu shot clinic, if you know where to look. Here are some ideas on how to get a free vaccine this...

Where to Find Coupons

Where to Find Coupons

I look for coupons everywhere. You probably do, too. Ever since our family started living frugally five years ago, I have been on the constant hunt for ways for us to save. This includes using coupons, something I shunned at first but which I now see can go a long way towards cutting our spending. Unlike the shoppers on TLC’s show “Extreme Couponing,” I don’t get 90% or 100% in savings. That’s just not realistic. But if I can save between 10% and 30% on each of my trips to the grocery store, then I feel like I’ve accomplished...

You’ve heard me wax poetic before about my extreme couponing at CVS. Well now CVS is helping me accomplish even bigger savings. Between July 15th and July 18th, you can get a $4 coupon, off $20 spent, just by scanning your CVS Extra Care card at the coupon kiosk in the store. I visited CVS today, and everyone in the world must have been scanning their cards, because it took forever for the coupons to print out. But then I thought that the $4 off $20 coupon wasn’t there, until I found it was the very last coupon to...

Get Beautiful on the Cheap

I love to wear makeup. Do I wear it everyday? Heck, no. But when I have the time to do my hair and makeup, I’m always glad that I made the effort. When it comes to stocking my cosmetics kit, it probably comes as no surprise that I always try to get beautiful on the cheap. Sure, I splurge on certain beauty products or services–such as having my hair professionally cut and colored–because I’ve found that when it comes to hair, you get what you pay for. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t find ways to save money...

Here’s how you can turn this transaction into an extreme couponing opportunity. Click over to SmartSource.com and look for General Mills’ cereal coupons.

Normally, when I see coupons for Listerine, it is something like $1 off 2, and then those coupons never include the Total Care line, which is what my dentist recommends we use. It’s also the priciest Listerine out there. However, this week, there is a deal going on that makes buying Listerine at CVS a real money saver.

Two Triaminic Coupons in Time for Flu Season

My kids have already been sick this fall, but thankfully not with the flu–just colds. I’m sure getting them flu shots has helped, and I hope that no one in our family ends up ill this winter. Even so I always like to plan for a worst-case health scenario and tend to keep lots of cold and flu medicine on hand at home–especially when I can stock up when things are on sale and I have coupons. Based on that logic, now could be a good time to stock up on Triaminic medicine. That’s because you can get a...

Extreme Couponing at CVS

As you know from past posts about what I’ve learned from watching “Extreme Couponing“ and my ability to extreme coupon at CVS, I am a devout CVS shopper. It helps that CVS is the only convenient pharmacy-like store to where I live–within walking distance and around the corner from my daughters’ school. Last month I shared with you about how I was beginning to build my shampoo and conditioner stockpile, thanks to extreme savings at CVS. Well, those extreme savings are back.

Current Extreme Couponing at CVS

September 16, 2011

I’ve posted in the past how I find that I can do my “best” extreme couponing at CVS. Well, a trip to CVS this past week proved that sentiment to still be true. As I do whenever I shop at CVS, I scanned my Extracare Card at the kiosk in the front of the store. (Collin over at Hip2Save calls it the “CVS Magic Machine.”) One of the coupons that printed out was for $5 off a bottle of Zyrtec, 25 count or more. Considering our family has allergies and responds to Zyrtec better than any other allergy medicine,...
