Shopping Til I Drop: Walgreens Midnight Madness

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

I am posting fresh from a midnight spree at the 24-hour Walgreens. Would I do it again? Probably not. 😉 The shelves were decently stocked (the only things I didn’t manage to find were the Reach toothbrushes and another bottle of Swisse vitamins.) The company was pleasant… Mom and I were getting giddy from being […]

Shopping Til I Drop: Our CVS Scavenger Hunt

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

Alternate title: How we survived CVS’s Black Friday: Part 1, and earned over $40 in ExtraCare Bucks! You don’t realize just how much of a downer our local Walgreens is, until you follow it up with an immediate trip to our favorite CVS. As Mom and I entered the store, we were greeted with a […]

Shopping Til I Drop: A Fine Time for Free Vitamins

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

There’s a zen-like calm when shopping a store just as it opens, when no other souls are mulling around. Mom and I made a full lap around CVS while the only other patron, a man down the cold medicine aisle, spent his time inspecting every bottle of cough syrup on the shelf. The only thing […]

Shopping Til I Drop: CVS: Rose Scented Savings

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

Today’s CVS trip was a lightning quick one (I had frozen food and groceries waiting in the car.) I was flying through the store, checking items off my list at a quick clip… until I hit the cosmetics section. My eyes glazed over while staring at the dull rack of basic Revlon nail polishes. There […]

Shopping Til I Drop: Walmart: Free Razors, Cheap Cheesecake!

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

Sissy needed to get some essentials at Wally World, so I told her to pick my rear up and we’d schlep over together. Just before midnight, we ventured out in messy ponytails and our finest loungewear. She gathered her groceries, and I grabbed a cheesecake. Hey, don’t give me that look! 😉 It was on […]

Shopping Til I Drop: CVS Halloween Deals

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

My CVS trip probably has me under some sort of neighborhood surveillance now. Hey, it’s not my fault the great razor deals happened to be running in the same ad as the Halloween candy! Besides that, today was a pretty fun shopping trip! My favorite cashiers were manning the store, and we chatted about everything […]

Shopping Til I Drop: CVS Mega Moneymaker Morning

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

I slowly (for dramatic effect, of course) unloaded this morning’s CVS haul onto the nearby TV tray. Dad sat in his recliner ready to pass judgement like a Roman emperor observing a gladiator. “Is that all you went out for? Just candy?” He was obviously unimpressed with my sugary offerings as I set bag after […]

Shopping Til I Drop: Walmart Freebie Spree

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

While picking up my medicine at Walmart, I decided to take advantage of the current multitude o’ moneymakers & freebies! I’ve paid off my $9 prescription with overage alone before. Could I do it this time, too? The answer to that is a loud, resounding “no”. I was hoping to find the cheap Benefiber packets, […]

Shopping Til I Drop: 50 Shades of Glade

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

I briefly locked eyes with the woman in the parking space across from ours while she loaded bulging plastic sacks into the back of her car. Bags that were stretched to max capacity, yet she hefted them with no effort at all. I admired how she had finished so much shopping so dang quickly since […]
