Today I paid $4.40 out of pocket for $12.90 worth of items. I love the Soy Joy bars as they are a great little snack and I was waiting for them to go on sale again.

The bars did not earn any extra bucks but the ones I had were mostly about to expire and I needed to use them up before that happened. I am also trying to go through the rest of the year without spending any more out of pocket at CVS because I need the money to put towards a snowflake payment to the LASIK card.

I am waiting on a gift card from redeeming points at Discover and not having any ECBs is incentive for me to avoid CVS until I get that gift card in my hand.
