Shopping Til I Drop: The Good, The Bad, & The Minty

Posted by & filed under , , , , , , , , , .

ga_cvs908Sunday was a good day for some much needed retail therapy. I’d been in a funk all weekend, and picking up some freebies was way more satisfying than moping around in bed and shoveling Doritos in my face. Also, Doritos in bed? A terrible idea unless lying on a bed of spikes excites you. Those crumbs are a pain!

A trip to CVS perked me up a bit. It’s hard to be frowny when you’re getting free toothpaste and lip balm. I had to duel my mother for those lip balms, too. Sorry, Mom! This time I’m keeping the makeup! 😉

The only major bummer this trip was I ended up forgetting to bring my $5 off 1 CVS 5-blade razor RCM coupon. I printed it at home and left it in the printer tray. Hopefully I’m not the only one who’s done that…
