Keeping Track

So, I decided to start a blog to help keep track of my wonderful savings at CVS thanks to MoneySavingMom,, and other odds and ends websites that have helped me along the way. I have been CVS'ing (as they call it) for 2 months now, and already have saved so much money I just can't believe it! My years of paying for toothpaste are over! (I must have enough to last a few years- lol!) I have been keeping track of my savings using a spreadsheet that I downloaded from a link provided by It has been a wonderful tool for keeping track of the total amount that I am spending out of pocket on my CVSing.
My total amount spent for my first 2 months of CVSing is: $31.39 For that $31.39 I have gotten (and this is by no means a complete or comprehensive list)

26 bottles of Dawn dish soap
5 packs of 8-roll paper towels = 40 rolls of paper towels
8 or more packs of 8 rolls and up toilet paper
10 tubes of toothpaste
20 or more toothbrushes
15 bottles of shampoo

Mouthwash ( about 5 bottles)
6 packs of Face wipes
