CVS Trip 9/1

I'm still playing catch up so here's another post from the past!

Okay, so if you couldn't tell by now, I really love shopping at CVS. I did go to Walgreens for a few "freebies" that didn't really make me too happy. I know that they now have a coupon policy (which is posted on their website), but it seems like the personnel there aren't as knowledgeable about coupons as the personnel at CVS. Also today at one of their locations I was told that I can only do 2 transactions. I would love to know where that one is stated, but I decide just to do my 2 and leave. Then at another location I was told that I'm really not supposed to go to different store and buy the other products that I didn't buy at the first location because that if the store wanted me to buy all of the products, they wouldn't limit it to 2 transactions, by a cashier. I just smiled, told her "oh okay, thank you" , and walked out of the store. I don't even know what to say about that one, so if anyone wants to comment, please feel free.

So on to wait you all have been waiting for, my almost tax only CVS shopping trip.

That last transaction was me just getting a few things that we needed here at the house without having to spend too much oop. I do hate that I won't be able to use that $8.00 ECB on next weeks snuggie deal, but I think I can work something else out for it.

I might post my Walgreens trip later, I'm really tired right now. I think I'm only going to shop at Walgreen when there is something that I will actually use for cheap or free. But other than that I'm staying clear of Walgreens for a while, especially since I can no longer combine the Walgreens monthly coupons from their booklet with a manufacturer's coupon. *yawns*

I missed the cheap/free pasta from FoodLion last week, but I know there is a deal this week at Publix on pasta, so I'll be back later with a shopping trip from them for ya'll. *yawns, again*


And on that note, I bid you good night.
