CVS/pharmacy Basics
♥ These are all the items CVS/pharmacy asked me to try out. ♥

I shop at CVS/pharmacy about once a month or so (only because the closest one is about 20 minutes or so away and it hasn’t always been the cheapest place when combined with the gas to get there). Sometimes I will make more than one trip a month though, to take advantage of special deals, mixed with coupons that earn Extra Care Bucks (ECBs) getting items for super low cost or free.

What if I told you that there is actually a way that you don’t have to be an extreme couponer, and you don’t have to use coupons even, and you can get great deals, all the time – on products you use everyday?


Well, then check out the Just the Basics line of products… I have and I’m super impressed. I’m pretty sure I will be making that drive out to CVS/pharmacy just to get these products alone! I can assure you, that at this point, making the drive will be worth it to save this much money on products I buy all the time.

While I plan to blog about every single one of these products individually in the coming weeks, I want to just say how impressed I am with the items I received to try.

Just the Basics is a new line of everyday essentials exclusively available at CVS/Pharmacy created to provide customers with smart, simple products that are reliable and convenient, yet priced lower than similar brand name items.

Yes, please. How can you not love that?

Just the Basics offers the lowest prices and highest value when compared to store and national brand options with equivalent sizes and quantities.

Again, yes.

Take detergent as an example… a normal 64 load bottle of name brand detergent averages about $14.99 and even if you use a coupon or you resort to purchasing the store brand label, you’ll still pay about $10.00. Well, not at CVS/pharmacy! The Just the Basics bottle of 2x Concentrated Laundry Detergent (that smells like a tropical heaven!) only retails for $4.99. No, I’m not kidding. It’s amazing! (more on the detergent, and all the other products, soon – with a run down of how they each worked)

With approximately 100 products available, the Just the Basics offers a large selection of practical items from a variety of categories throughout CVS/pharmacy stores:

  • Household
  • Beauty
  • Baby
  • Personal Care

Of course, another thing that caught my eye, is their 100% satisfaction guarantee on all of their CVS/pharmacy Brand products. What this means for you, is that All CVS/pharmacy Brand products and all beauty products are 100% satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. If you are dissatisfied for any reason, you can return the CVS/pharmacy Brand or beauty product (opened or unopened) along with your receipt or invoice and we will refund the full purchase price- no questions asked. Impressive.

With that, what do you have to lose?

Have you tried any of the CVS/pharmacy Just the Basics products? What did you think?

Are these natural products or normal chemical products? My hubby is on a freaking mission to replace all our chemicals with natural stuff...I've been hiding toilet bowl cleaner on him!!!

Visiting from #commenthour - congrats on being featured :)

No. They aren't all natural products, they are normal, regular, chemicals. But they have lots of things to choose from, NOT just cleaning products - food, razors, etc. etc. Hope that helps :) And thanks! I had no idea I'd actually get picked. VERY honored. :)
