Natwionwide Thrift Store Directory

I discovered a Thrift Store Directory.  You can enter either the zip code or name of the city and it will list charity driven thrift stores, ratings and reviews.

Thrift stores are great places to find items for less than retail stores.  Many things can be found with original price tags and boxes.  One thing about it is that you are not guaranteed to find what you are looking for.  Part of the fun of thrift shopping is the treasure hunt or unplanned purchase of something you have been looking for, for a lower price.

I have found many things for a fraction of the regular price that either were brand new or looked brand new.

Vitamin Deals

There are a number of brands of vitamins that are Buy 1 Get 1 Free this week at CVS (with a CVS card which is free to apply for).  Included are the CVS brand, Natures Bounty, Nature Made. The sale runs thru Saturday, February 9.

Also, in the coupon insert in the Sunday (2/3) newspaper there are coupons for Nature's Bounty vitamins that can be used with this sale.  There is a $4 off Protein Shake Mix, $3 off Optimum Health, $1 off Fish oil and $1 off any Nature's Bounty vitamin.

There is also a deal on Renu Contact solution.  The regular price is $9.99, sale price with CVS card $7.99 and you get a $5 ECB (coupon) off a future purchase in the next month.  So the final price would be $2.99.  I also had a $1.50 coupon that expired today so the final price was $1.50.

I had a $9 ECB from a previous purchase so I ended up getting $110 of items for $40. Plus I received the $5 ECB for a future purchase.

If you take vitamins it may be worth it to stock up when they are on sale, you can get 2 for the price of 1 or less.
