ExtraSavings at CVS All Summer Long

With summer officially upon us, I’m sure you guys need your “go to” store for last minute essentials to keep you going throughout these busy summer weeks.  I know I sure do!  My store of choice has been CVS this summer – there is a store just down the street from our home and I’ve found that I can rely on CVS for all the little things my family needs this time of the year.

We are lucky to live just a few miles from the beach here at the beautiful Jersey Shore!  With the beach so close comes lots of Saturday beach trips.  Now that we’ve got a toddler in our midst (she was just a baby!) as well as an 8-month old, beach trips are much different!  No more need to pack headphones and magazines for a relaxing afternoon, now it’s time to pack sand pails, shovels, baby sunscreen, goggles, beach balls, a first aid kit, the list goes on!  As we got ready for our first trip to the beach as a family of 4, I realized I was in need of so many kid-friendly beach essentials.  Did I want to spend a crazy amount of money on a sand pail set down at the beach? Well of course not!

CVS quickly came to mind – my go to for all my summer needs!  Using my ExtraCare Card, I scored all we needed for a trip to the beach with kids at such reasonable prices – all beach essentials were 20% off plus part of a gas card promotion the week I shopped!  Score!  I got Annabelle’s much needed sand pail set, sunscreen (I’m such a fan of the spray sunscreen over lotion for kids), a beach ball, goggles, a beach towel and of course I needed a small first aid kit for our bag.

We had a blast this 4th of July weekend spent on the beautiful Jersey Shore.  Going to the beach prepared makes for such an enjoyable experience – our kids were happy, protected and entertained and we made some awesome memories!
