Christmas is coming and if your family is anything like ours you are going to be needing some batteries. Don't miss out on the nearly free batteries this week at CVS!

The ECB deal is buy $20 in duracell, get back $15 ECBs. Limit of THREE per household!

The Duracell are on sale for $5.99 and $9.99. There are coupons out for $1.50 off and Duracell, and also .75 cents off any Duracell.

Buy a package for $9.99 and two at $5.99 = $21.99

Use three $1.50/1 = $17.47

Get back $15.

Now you already have $1.99 toward your "buy $20".

You could purchase 2 @ $9.99, use 2 more coupons, pay $16.98 and get back $15

For another $1.98 you could go one more time!

Starting with $0 ECBs you could spend $21.43 and leave with $61.93 worth of batteries and $15 in ECBs for next time!

Thank you CVS!

We try to give gifts that do not require batteries because batteries are bad for the environment AND we would rather the kids use toys that stimulate their imaginations.

However, for those of you going the traditional route, please, please, please, please, PLEASE RECYCLE YOUR OLD BATTERIES!!!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, etc............

Most Staples stores take and recycle old batteries - disposable and rechargeable.
