Yes, people. The holidays are coming. so we need to get with it! I admit that I really love this time of year, and I don’t really mind seeing the holiday decor and gifts in stores around October. It reminds me about our family game plan of getting ahead of the game when it comes to holiday shopping. Each year, our family works on attaining gifts, at a great price, to get a jump on the holidays.
This year, with a newborn who loves to snuggle, and two kids that appreciate a mom who isn’t frazzled over buying gifts, I’m taking on challenge of being proactive seriously. With the current CVS/pharmacy gift card promotion, I can shop for household essentials on my list, while earning gift cards that I can use for stocking stuffers. We have a few family members that would love to have a gift card for Macy’s or iTunes in their stocking.

Our plan is to check out a few of the CVS stores in our neighborhood for the select items that are part of the promotion, and use the gift cards as a thank you gift for our daughter’s preschool teacher, our mail carrier, and others. The items that we buy from CVS will be wrapped up for Christmas gifts, as well. We’ll have most of our list done within a few days. When we say we want to get a jump on the holidays, we really mean it!
Don’t forget to stop by the Extra Care coupon center when you visit the store! You have to love that CVS/pharmacy creates coupons and special offers that work just for you. I can even conveniently store email offers and savings from cvs.com, myWeekly ad, and the CVS mobile app on my ExtraCare card. They make it so easy to save.
