On this trip I paid $12.70 out of pocket for $23.98 worth of items. I was trying to make this my last CVS trip as I want to take a break for the rest of the year, but I miscalculated and actually got items that gave me ECBs that I do not want to go to waste. I got the diabetes monitor for my father and since this is November there may be another sale on diabetes supplies at the end of the month.
I will perform my last CVS 2010 transaction in November and will have December to plan for next year. I am going to use up all the ECBs on my final trip, which might be the next one and will also end up spending some cash like I did today. I will make my last trip for some items that do not give ECBs so that I will not have an excuse to come back.
