My Black Friday

On Black Friday every year I would rather hibernate than fight through a crowded store over an impulse purchase that would eventually end up in the trash or the yard sale pile. Don't get me wrong I LOVE to spoil my kids when it comes to presents but I choose not to overwhelm them so much that it dilutes the meaning of Christmas. Yet this year I did venture out and make a few Black Friday purchases.
Although my shopping trip was made on Thanksgiving Day it was still advertised as a Black Friday sale ;-) at CVS of course and Walgreen's as well, lol. However, being that this was my first trip to Walgreen's to score some Register Rewards I was not impressed. I feel that my purchases were not as money savvy as CVS and may never shop there again unless needed. Therefore I will share with you my CVS trip first.

I would like to add that due to the recent rumors of CVS employees having a disgusting attitude toward savvy ECB shoppers, the employees and the CVS I shop at are absolutely amazing! They are patient with me in every way even when I am not patient with myself, when my children are with me the take notice in there good behavior and encourages good behavior when they are acting up. With that said her are my transactions in order, with a few minor confusions, lol
