This was an easy transaction...these deals are good through Saturday evening (except for the marshmallows, they may not be marked down at your CVS).
I was asked how long I've been couponing...well, I've been seriously doing it for about a year. I used to clip coupons here and there, but about a year ago I started CVSing and started getting the Sunday paper and clipping coupons regularly.
I was also asked how much I budget. For CVS I don't really set a budget, I just try to get things we need and spend as little as possible. For groceries, I budget approximately $45-$50 a week.
