Fuss-Free Savings at CVS on Pampers and Other Road Trip Essentials

2 Flares Filament.io Made with Flare More Info'> 2 Flares ×

We’ve been doing our fair share of traveling over the past month, as I’m sure many of you have, as well. When you travel, do you have any “must have” items for the trip? In our case, we treat ourselves to the following items:

1. A new app for Darah to help keep her entertained

2. McDonald’s Egg McMuffin sandwiches (we’re always on the road in the early hours…gotta fuel up!)

3. Squeeze pouches for a yummy snack for the kids. 4. Iced coffee for Tiffany, anywhere we can get it (McDonald’s, Starbucks, I’m not picky, as long as it is COLD!)

4. Disposable diapers, which make life with a toddler infinitely easier when traveling.

I have a CVS just 7 minutes away from my home, and I actually like to make a trip there before we get in the car and begin our travels. I stock up there on dipes and wipes, squeeze pouches for the girls, and if they are on sale, I’ll also pick up the Starbucks Frappuccios (They taste like candy! Love them!). Once a year, or so, I’ll even get an iTunes gift card there (their gift card selection is awesome!), and that keeps us set for our app purchases throughout the year. pampers and CVS fuss-free savings Recently I headed in to get my diaper bag stocked up, and I opted for Pampers products. Pampers are, in my experience, a very reliable brand, and reliable is exactly what I want on the road. Ever had a diaper malfunction while the child was in the car seat? Yeah….NOT something I want to deal with, and especially not while I’m away from my home and my washing machine. Pampers have an ultra-absorbent core that can withstand up to 12 hours of overnight protection (and I prefer to use overnight diapers for road trips, as well, when I can’t check on Layah’s diaper quite as often). They recently increased the capacity of the diaper by 15%, as well. Basically, it is ready for action! 😉

When I was picking out the wipes to go with the Pampers, I knew I found my match when I saw the sensitive designation. Why? Because my child always has and still does like to put those darn wipes in her mouth! I need as few chemicals as possible! pampers wipes from CVS My bags were stocked with what I needed for our recent trips, and to top it all off, when I was checking out the CVS register gave me a $2 coupon off a $10 purchase of any baby needs. Guess who went right back into the store to spend it? This girl! Being able to save more on the things I need puts a smile on my face. CVS makes it happen! pampers bought at CVS What are your “must haves” when taking a road trip?  Win it!: One Stuff Parents Need reader will receive 2 coupons from Pampers and CVS (one for a free package of Pampers diapers, and one for a free package of Pampers wipes!).

    We always get a ton of snacks. It never fails that as soon as we leave, one of them will be hungry even if they just ate..lol

  2. says

    Happy New Years and thank you for offering this giveaway. I would love to win this prize for my boyfriend’s sister who is having a baby soon. She would appreciate this gift a lot. Before any road trip, I like to get Diet Coke and pizza combos!

    snacks, and a new book for each child even the little ones get a new book to look at but the main purpose is the older ones will take turns reading out loud to us in the car and everyone else in the car has to be quiet during this time Even the two year old “reads” her book out loud for a few minutes at a time.

  4. Taryn T. says

    I always stock up on bottles of water, plastic grocery bags, and wipes and paper towels. It seems like one of my kids always gets car sick in the worst place on our road trip!

  5. felicia says

    Thank you…before I go on the trip I always stock up on snacks, so I can drive a little longer before stopping to eat a full meal..

  6. Jessica Wyatt says

    I always have to get sunflower seeds for the road because they keep me awake (seriously, they are a lifesaver). And I LOOOVE stopping for Icees. :)

  7. Sharon says

    I always pack benadryl. My grandson is allergic to nuts and fish so we don’t go anyplace without his allergy medicine and benadryl. As a grandma I also pack all the good treats to eat and drink.

  8. Kayla J says

    I drive a lot since this mama is still in college. Brayden goes with me a lot of times and diapers are definitely a must have as well as baby foods in the pouches!

  9. Kimberly says

    I always make sure we have snacks and drinks. If I’m not the one driving, I make sure I have a good magazine to read too.

  10. tanna sutherland says

    our road trips are generally from california to washington state so gum for the mountains is always a must have!

  11. Janet W. says

    One thing I always purchase for my grandsons before a road trip is some new coloring books/crayons to keep them busy!

  12. Kathleen S. says

    I have to have snacks, handi wipes and something for everyone to read on the way.. it makes the miles go faster!

  13. Dana West says

    Definitely snacks! It is much cheaper to bring snacks rather than stopping at every store you see! Oh….and toilet paper….just in case!

  14. Luna S says

    I always make sure to bring a hair brush,toothbrush and tooth paste. Before I leave I make sure to buy snacks and things to keep everyone entertained.
