CVS Total Home Review and Giveaway

CVS is one of those stores that I can spend my whole paycheck in.  I can tell myself I only need new razors and a mascara, and I come out with $5,000 worth of items I didn't know I needed, but I had to have them.   I love the reasonably priced items, and something on my shopping list is always on sale, which I love.  Don't forget to use your CVS card next time you shop!



CVS is an American drug retailer company with a pharmacy chain.  This store is your one-stop shop for everything you need.  Where else can you pick up a gallon of milk, a birthday card for your sister, new makeup, baby powder, a magazine, and your medicine? You can only find items sold all in one place like this at a drug store.  I love the convenience factor! CVS has recently introduced a new exclusive line of household essentials called Total Home Products, available nationwide.  The products include a wide range of items for everyday home care.  The products range from cooking and cleaning to organizing.  The bonus part is that the line is priced 15-20% cheaper than popular national brands.  Among more than 150 items included in the line are facial and bath tissue, paper towels, trash bags, food and storage necessities, kitchen and bathroom items and much more.  

I was fortunate enough to receive a basket of Total Home products to review for myself.  I'm not loyal to just one brand name, I like to frequently try new products.  

I can now start a mini CVS in my house.  Who will be my business partner?

I was very happy with the selection of products I received.  I thought it was a good mix of what the product line includes.  I was sent storage bags, cling wrap, flushable wipes, disinfecting wipes, fabric softener sheets, toilet paper, and a box of tissues.  Everything came in a fantastic reusable brown wicker basket. 

I really liked the labels of everything.  Just because the Total Home line is a CVS extension and not a name brand line doesn't mean that the labels have to be dull and boring.  The labels were colorful and descriptive and sold the products well.  I haven't had a chance to use all of the products so far, but I have used a couple.  

Last night I opened a large package of chicken.  Since I wasn't cooking the entire pack at once, I put the remaining chicken in the gallon bags to store in the fridge.  The gallon bags were fantastic.  They opened with ease and the chicken fit inside with no problem.  They zipped closed and stayed closed.  They didn't seem poor quality at all.  I would certainly use them in the future to hold any excess food I'd like to freeze, or for upcoming holiday baking.

The disinfecting wipes are fantastic for a quick counter or kitchen wipe down.  These are the perfect thickness and they work well.  The lemon scent is very pleasant.  I used them yesterday to wipe down my counters after I cooked.  I felt confident with the state of my counters after using them, and I doubly liked seeing the dirt on the wipe after use.  

I made a plate of cookies for my work last night too.  I used the cling wrap to keep the cookies fresh before bringing them to work in the morning.  The cling wrap was strong and protective and adhered to the plate well.  Everyone loved my cookies too!

I can't wait to use the rest of the products.  So far I am very impressed with each product.  The lower price guarantee is also a great incentive to make the Total Home switch whenever you shop at CVS.
