My CVS Trip!!!

I love CVS!! They are so good to me and shopping the ECB's is like a game...so much fun! I was rushed for time, so the last transaction could've been done earlier, probably, but oh well. I am sure there were other ways to combine it all that would have been less out of pocket (oop). If you come up with a better scenario, let me know!!!

This is a picture of my items from CVS, minus the last trip. I'm too lazy to take another pic, download it, then post it here. I will go with the morning trip and you will have to imagine the evening trip mingling among the other buys. :)

  1. it really is awesome but, I hadn't really known how to do it until recently so I don't have any ECB's stored up. I need to get the ball rollin' so I can start saving!
