A great way to save money on your necessary purchases is to take advantage of certain drugstore coupons and reward systems. With just a minimal amount of time invested, you can make some pretty big savings.....really stretching that dollar!
I don't have any of these drugstores within decent shopping distance of my home, so I am not super familiar with the in's and out's of the savings programs. Instead of trying to explain it all myself, I'll provide you with some great links from fellow bloggers to help you get started.
If you are like me and live in the boonies, you can always use Alice. You can snag some great deals using their coupons and you don't even have to leave your house!
