I'm so jealous! You did a great job.

Laurie said...

I had a few coupons that beeped that they wouldn't push through either...I was annoyed since they were perfectly legit.

I'm too wiped out from all that to even hit up Wags & Rite Aid this week.

Donna Rae said...

CVS rocks!!!! I always get my best deals there. I wonder how they stay in business with deal seekers like us in there all the time.

Jamie said...

Great trip! Glad everything you wanted was available that's always nice! The only thing i didn't get my hands on quick enough was a remote and headphones.

Melissa said...

you did awesome!! all my stores have been cleaned out since early Thanksgiving day.. I just didn't have the energy to go out Wed night but I should have!

Michelle said...

Looks good! I went at midnight, too. I made my oldest come with me - we were laughing the whole while, silly from being overtired.

I agree - everything was in stock - it was a good way to go.

Justine said...

you did AWESOME! I am so jealous... I totally missed out on some stuff this time!

Heather said...

Wow, Lindsay! Great job! I usually don't get a CVS ad in my paper, but on Thanksgiving there was one and I was salivating over the deals. Unfortunately I've been stuck in the house working on this paper and couldn't devote any more time to shopping than I already had.

I'm proud of you. Way to save some bucks!
