If you're new to Couponing for Charity, it works like this. I share what I feel are the best deals for the week, give scenarios for what I'm buying, and tell what I'm keeping for my family and what I'm donating. I try to focus on the freebie and money maker items that are non-perishable or foods with a long shelf life, but a few other good deals slip in there too. If you're new to shopping the deals at pharmacies, this is a GREAT week to get started, provided you have the right coupons. If you're interested in the CVS deals, I suggest you go today or tomorrow, before some of the coupons expire 2/28.
- 2 Crest pro-health 4.2oz toothpaste ($3.29, get $3.29, used 2 $.75 MC = $1.50 MM) The cashier wouldn't accept the $1 Pro Health for Me coupon; depends on your clerk. You could buy Oral B floss instead.
- 2 Oral-B crossaction power toothbrushes 1ct ($6 each, get $3ECB for each, used 1 B1G1 expiring 2/28 and 1 $3/1 coupon in 2/27 insert=$3MM)

I'll probably go for most of these deals except the anti-aging product. Coupon Katie gave a good deal scenario to minimize your OOP.
