I have noted before that I like to keep around $20 in CVS Extra Care Bucks put back, as a stash for the weeks when we’re tight on the budget. This was one of those weeks.
We had a lot of bills due, a lot of extra expenses that had to happen immediately, and a large enough gap between my invoices that there was a fairly well-defined deficit in this week’s cash on hand. Bless you, CVS ECB program…bless you.
We needed diapers…and with the way the little one pee pees every five seconds, we needed a hundred. And I am a brand snob when it comes to diapers. And we had $15.

$9 CVS Extra Care Bucks (ECB) redeemed
TOTAL SPENT: 14.46
TOTAL SAVED: 11
ECB earned: 5
I’m not so concerned with our percent saved, but just happy that I had that stash. For the record, though, it was 43%.
Which reminds me…we gotta get on this potty-training thing. Aside from the fact that we should be doing it anyway, I’m tired of buying double diapers.
