How I Save Money At CVS: 24 May 09

Today I paid $19.54 out of pocket for $20.04 worth of items. I know this is not a very good track record based on the small amounts that I have paid at other times but today was a hectic day and I was with someone else. I do not have any pictures either because some of the items were not for me and I forgot to take a picture in time.
