I love them! They NEVER expire now. They can be stacked with manufacturer’s coupons from the newspaper or Internet, making it legal double-dipping. In fact, I’m planning to earn $3 at CVS this week if I can find a store that has the Sense & Sprays. If I buy 2 Sense & Sprays for $5 each, I get back $3 in ECBs. I have 2 $4 off coupons from Sunday’s paper, and I have 2 $1 off CRT coupons for any Glade product. Yep, that’s $10 off, making them totally free. And I get back $3 in ECBs. So, I’ll probably pay $.70 for tax and get back $3.00. I like that kind of math. And that’s why I love CRT coupons!
But I hate them! Did I mention that they NEVER expire now. That means that the envelope full of CRT coupons just keeps growing and growing and growing. I’ve almost outgrown the letter-sized envelope that I keep them in. What in the world am I going to do with more of them!?!?
But I can’t throw them away. Oh, I sort through them and get rid of ones that I know I’ll never use. (Although I’m pretty sure I tossed Poise CRTs, not realizing that they would be moneymakers this week.) I had to come up with a way to organize them so that I could truly make the most of them. Here’s what I came up with.
I have turned this into a filing system for my CRT coupons from CVS. I am dedicating each page to a specific category of CRTs. For example, the first two pages are dedicated to air fresheners and food items.
I’m going to evaluate my CVS shopping list each week and try to pair CRTs with the items I’m purchasing. I’m hoping that this will help me save even more at CVS. I’m sure that I’m going to end up with more CRTs than this little album can hold, but I’m going to give it a try for now. Hopefully I’ll be using the CRTs, saving money, and keeping the book at a manageable size.
It works for me!
