Today I went to CVS. I had mapped everything out thanks to CouponMom and Living Rich with Coupons.
I took Sprout after her gymnastics class today. I knew that bringing a 3-year-old with me gave me a good chance of messing it all up, but thought we would try it anyway.
We went to the CVS I thought we would have better luck at, only to find that they didn't have the items I was looking. Sprout told me we should try a different CVS. So, we went to the one that is closer to our house, but I don't typically have good luck there.
