Reader Shopping Trip: CVS

Mindy’s shopping trip to CVS saved her over $200.  She found a bunch of clearance items at up to 90% off.

I have been getting very discouraged playing the pharmacy game at CVS, due to rude managers and no product on the shelves but tonight revived my spirit and I am ready to keep on going! The cashier told me that many CVS stores will be putting up tables like we found tonight throughout the week this week if they haven’t already done so.
