    I didn't even plan to go to CVS this week but since I saw the info on Simply CVS about the Kotex U I decided to make a quick stop. Boy am I happy I did. You never know what you will find.
    I originally was going to get 4 Kotex U but discovered since I stacked the coupons when I cut them I had cut the bar code and X date on some of them. Ugh!
    In transaction 1 I had planned to use $10 ECB but didn't reach that total. I never know what the 25% SQ will take off. I found one Revlon eyeshadow with a 75% off sticker but when I checked it at the Red Machine it was not on clearance. I checked other eyeshadows and found one that did not have a sticker but was in-fact on clearance. The cashier said they were going to redo the whole make up wall soon. I recently started to double check prices at the Red Machine so I am not caught unpleasantly surprised while checking out. Soooo glad I did. This is the first time I have been able to find the Reinvent Magazine. Another little happy surprise. Thanks again Cheryl.
