Today’s trip to CVS…I lost my EBs today…

OMG, the unthinkable happened to me today! I through away my Extra Bucks and the coupons for the deals that I was going work this morning. BOO HOO.

I got up a little early this morning and was clean out some of the junk out of my bedroom and put that junk in a bag. As I was walking to the dumpster, I also had the stuff that I was taking to work with me and I must have tossed the Extra Bucks in the dumpster along with the rest of the trash.

I didn’t realize it until about before lunch when I was going to go to CVS in Pt Loma. I searched all through my purse. No envelope. So, I left for lunch a wee bit early and ran home (I only live 10 min from work). I looked high and low. No envelope and that is when I realized that I must have thrown away the EBs.

I went back to work and picked my coworker and I bought the following straight out of pocket with cash.

BUT the wonderful thing was that in my little Coach Wristlet, I had put a $4 Clairol Q in there just in case someone else needed it…and I turned out to be that someone else!

Here are my gets at CVS today:

Bought 1 Glade Candle $6.99
Bought 1 Clairol Natural Instinct $4.99

Total = $11.98

Used -$4 Clairol Natural Instinct (P&G 8/2)

Total after coupon used = $7.98

EBs Earned = $8.98

Notes: The reason that the hair dye is not pictured is b/c I gave it to my coworker!
