I should note that that I have hardly shopped at drug stores this year. As in, the entire 2012 year. You see, I did almost too good of a job stocking up last year. Because I still have a year's supply (or close to it) of body wash, razors, deodorant, shave gel, and several other items. I have at least a year's supply of laundry detergent. And dishwasher tabs.
Because I have plenty (and this doesn't include the boxes I have donated) and have very limited storage space, I just didn't see a need to re-stock until my supply ran lower.
So I've not shopped my drug store deals much at all this year. Which is fine. But I will also lose my Rite Aid silver status next year.
Win some, lose some.
Also, I do not like their new coupon/reward card/+up Rewards system. Way too confusing.
But back to my shopping trip.
