There are so many deals this week that it's a great time to start a stockpile.

A proper stockpile allows you to have enough backups that you don't have to pay regular price for many products.

Since it's the beginning of the month, be sure to check out all the new coupons in the Walgreens coupon book; the Rite Aid Video Values site, Riteaid.adperk.com; and the in-store Single Check Rebates flyer; CVS in-store red kiosks; and Target.com.

Remember, all of these are store coupons that can be matched with a manufacturer coupon to give you additional savings.

CVS

As soon as you enter the store, scan your CVS ExtraCare card at the red kiosk in the front. Then you'll receive additional store coupons that can be matched with your newspaper manufacturer coupons.
