CVS 101


I’ve shared the news with many of you about how I’m getting free diapers, wipes, toothpaste, toothbrushes, bath soap, razors, and lots of other things from my dear friends at CVS.  Because of them, our food and “toiletries” expense category in our budget was only $50 for the three of us.  Before you think that’s too great, though, you should check out my friend, Keren’s blog, who lives on only $20 a week!!

Let me recommend a couple of sites that can really help you “newbies”! and both have excellent posts on getting started with CVS.  In fact there’s even a post for beginners to build up their Extra Care Bucks (you’ll understand that soon!) with less than $2 out of pocket! 

So, good luck, and let me know how you’re all doing!  I’ll put up a picture soon of all the stuff I’ve gotten in the last 4 weeks or so (minus the four packs of diapers I’ve already used!) for less than $30 out of pocket.  Here’s a picture of what my friend, Keren, got  – and actually made money! 🙂  Go, Keren!


About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!

  1. I’ve been doing really great there too . . . I’m trying to get the Weekleys onboard with it all . . . too funny. 🙂 Tim and I are hooked! I did FANTASTIC at Kroger this week too . . . I put a picture on my blog.

  2. Aww…thanks, Kim! I’m glad you’re doing so well with CVS.

    Although we do only spend $20 per week on groceries (at least for the moment), it does take a little bit more to live off of. 😉

    I wish we had a Kroger here, though. 😦
