Super Sweet Saving Saturday!

Today was a busy day for me, but I found time to make a trip to CVS! A $15 off $75 purchase coupon was burning a whole in my pocket and plus it expires tomorrow, so I had to find time to use it! A couple of my area CVS stores have card scanning machines and I received the coupon for scanning my card. So I thought today would be the best day to use it because I could take advantage of this week's, plus next week's deals. (Most CVS stores have next week's deals up by 3pm on Saturdays)

Here's my trip:
