Extra, Extra Bucks

Help!  I'm stuck in a vicious cycle of Extra Care Bucks at CVS and I can't get out!
Recently I spent a bunch of money at CVS stocking up on sundries to take to my parents' beach house so I didn't have to pack up my over-the-counter life every time I wanted to spend a night out there. 
Well, apparently that put me over some threshold in which I can only receive a minimum of 10 coupons every time I buy so much as a pack of gum.  The last 5 times I've been to CVS I have received at least $5 extra bucks and coupons to receive $3 off a purchase of $15 or more.  That's a potential savings of $8 folks.  Big money!
If you know me, you would know that the only thing I hate more than wasting a free money opportunity is having coupons floating around my purse or car.  So naturally I feel the necessity to get rid of all coupons immediately.  It's like I am an anal robot and someone has detonated a switch in me to save money and declutter ASAP.
Today I'm going to use my extra bucks and coupon to buy some Drano and toilet brushes (seriously, what is the deal with Wilmington water and toilet rings?!).  See!  I told you I need help.
So help my God if they give me more extra bucks this time I am going to have to switch to Walgreens or Rite Aid where you get no coupons.  I cannot handle this money-saving, subsequently money-spending, cyclone I'm in!
*Recently I told my dad a story about a mole that had a hair growing in it for about a month and then the hair disappeared.  I'm fully aware that this is on par with that story as far as entertainment value.  My apologies.  I just had to get this off my chest.

  1. Hahaha! I love CVS and all their coupons too - we have one right down the street from us and I am, literally, there several times a week!
