I’ve partnered with CVS to bring you a very fun giveaway to celebrate your life as mom. Congrats to the winners: gina.lang@, jackierwood83@, mwadeteacher@

Five years ago, when I first started writing in this space, we were deep in consumer debt. We paid it ($18K) off after 18 months of really hard work. One of the means that we saved money was to use coupons and chase the deals mercilessly.

That is when I met CVS, this week’s advertising sponsor. Each week I would pore over the weekly ad, match my coupons to the items they had on special, and visit two to three times a week to buy household items at a great discount.

I had kids in diapers during that time, so I absolutely LOVED the diaper and baby product deals. I found that their store brand, even five years ago, was just as good as the bigger name brands. I stocked up at every sale so as to have a stockpile when FishBaby arrived.

I had never thought to do that with my other kids. I was amazed how much one could save with anticipation buying!

By purchasing items that we regularly used on sale and stocking them in a cupboard, I guaranteed that I wouldn’t have to pay full price on those items when we really needed them.


CVS was the place where I could earn ExtraBucks, coupons toward cash back. I earned ECBs when I made certain purchases and also when I filled prescriptions.

New to CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare? Here are the Top 3 Ways to Save More:

1.   Enroll in the ExtraCare program to start getting savings personalized just for you, and ExtraBucks Rewards® you can spend on most things in the store.

2.   Make the ExtraCare Coupon Center your first stop every time you’re in the store to snag exclusive coupons you can use right away.

3.   Personalize your ExtraCare experience: with opt-ins, you can save how you want to save. Enroll in the ExtraCare Beauty Club to save more on beauty; join ExtraCare Advantage for Diabetes to earn double rewards on diabetes needs; register for ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards to earn bigger, faster rewards on prescriptions and the other little things you do to stay healthy.

Nowadays, I don’t clip many coupons much anymore, but CVS is still our go-to pharmacy for OTC and prescription meds. I scan my ExtraCare card everytime —  well, the littles love doing that, so they scan it — and we see what coupons are ready for us to use.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
