Helpful Savings Blog Links

This week, I made the above purchase in two transactions at CVS and paid just under $5 total out of pocket for the lot. For those of you who regularly do far better than that, this post isn't for you. And it's not to brag about how well I did. Rather it is to motivate and help those of you who are new to saving money at CVS.

If you want to learn more about how to make CVS work for you or even just want to make sure you're not missing anything, visit one or all of the following CVS Primers. They each explain it slightly differently, and maybe one or another will make more sense to you.

Then be sure to pick up a copy or two of the Sunday paper and save the coupons!

Abundant Frugal Life
Couponing 101
I Heart CVS
Deal Seeking Mom provides information on how to save at CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid.

These sites offer deal senarios, as well (you can surf their sites further), but I chose these particular links because of the help they give to beginners.

A Frugal Living Blog List that covers a wider variety of savings opportunities is next on my list to provide for you. I know that many of you already have a list which you check daily, but some of you don't, and have been asking where to look.

My list could go on and on forever, but somehow I need to narrow it down. I already have a bunch of favorites I'm sorting through. But if you write a savings blog or have a favorite you think should be included, you may email me, or leave the blog title in a comment.

In this economy, it is a wonderful thing to help families save money!
