I did pretty well this week at CVS. In the past I found myself buying tons of things that I didn't need so that I would be able to rack up ECBs. Now that I have a pretty good pile of ECBs to work with, I'm able to buy more things that I actually need. I've also been trying to buy more and more groceries at CVS to help lower my grocery bills.

Isn't it $5 ECB for the Bic Soleil - how did you get $10?

Hi! I live in Queens too, and you are so right about it being so expensive. I've been trying to cut coupons to save money, but I've been having trouble getting my deals to work the way I would like. I just started though, so I guess I'll just have to keep trying. It's nice to see someone else in NYC who does this! I thought I was the only one. Good luck with everything!
