My CVS Shopping Plan for May 3, 09

I usually stop by CVS on Sunday mornings after Church. I find all I need, nothing is out of stock. And most people are at home or Church so hardly anybody else is shopping. I’ve become acquainted with the employees. They are used to me doing 4 transactions at a time trying to get all my ECBs!

For this week, I am planning 4 transactions. I might do separate trips or just buy them on one trip.
