My Rite Aid Shopping Trip

By the time I had a chance to get to Rite Aid on Sunday afternoon, most of the items I wanted were gone.  The thing is that I needed to get my out of pocket purchase at or above $10 so that I could use the +up Reward from the Cover Girl make-up deal last week.  I am newly obsessed with John Frieda conditioner so I wanted to take advantage of the deal they have going this week.  In the end, I was still pretty pleased with my shopping.

So a few notes.  I didn't intend to buy the Cepacol.  I wanted the Burts Bees drops and Blistex.  But Burts and Blistex were both sold out at already.  So instead I bought the Cepacol and added in the Lypsyl as it was on sale for $0.99 and I needed something over $0.50 to reach that $10 +up Reward mark.  You have to be flexible when couponing.  It turns out I love it.  It's so fun and has this little bee that you push up to get more lippy up top.  The Cepacol, Carefree and Preparation H will all be donated.
