Welcome, my fellow CVS fanatics and newbies! It’s Sunday, time for our weekly CVS $5 Challenge. The place to go for simple CVS scenarios with step-by-step instructions.

This is a much better week at CVS! Be sure to hit the 3-day sale to score some free school supplies, through Tuesday only.

Don’t forget you can grab a clickable CVS $5 Challenge Button for your post or blog.
