I shared in another post that we didn't as yet have a set spending budget. That we just spent the same amount as we used to, basically. After the school year starts (and I get a regular paycheck again), we'll be instituting the budget I outlined in this post.
Since my drug store budget will be $10 a week, I thought I'd share what I would have gotten this week if I had done my weekly CVS shopping. I am getting my information from multiple blogs, and I'm not planning to confirm whether or not our area got these coupons. It is hypothetical, after all. Oh, and I'm a bit lazy on this Sunday night.
I'm starting with no ECB's because I used them at Publix yesterday. :)
