CVS Trip: Over 75% Savings!

The total was $11.30 without tax, and I got back 9 Extra Care Bucks (+5-10 more from beauty club.)

So I guess technically I made money, but my wallet is $11.30 lighter, ya know? 

I spent more than I usually do, but my dad has to use a certain type of shampoo and conditioner.  (And I have a wee bit of a nail polish obsession.  Just a wee one. Haha!)  So, I think this was a pretty good deal given that. 

Also, sometimes I don't mind paying a little more out of pocket to try something like the Nuance Volumizing Hair Foam or the Sally Hansen Polish.  (Been eyeing it for awhile, because the bottle is so pretty!)

I also don't just buy things because they are cheap or free.  If it is something I don't/won't use I leave it for others to get.  Even if it is absolutely free or makes me money.  (I don't love useless clutter in my house.  I have plenty already.  So sometimes I pay a little more than some of the other bloggers out there.  Just a different philosophy I guess.)
