    I have been wanting to try this for so long but I just can’t seem to get started. I know it makes sense! I’ve actually done it by accident before by buying something I wanted that I happened to have a coupon for and then catching it on sale. Just wish my brain would connect and make the whole CVS ECB savings thing work. :o)
