The Most Efficient CVS Shopping Trip Yet

I went to CVS at 9:15 p.m. Sunday night. Since they closed at 10, I knew I was risking making a wasted trip because the last few weeks I have not had much luck. I was either missing a coupon or they were out of stock of something. But tonight was amazing! I found everything I needed and we were out the door in 10 minutes! I also noticed that I think I have finally memorized the layout of the store after a month of being here in Kentucky. So maybe this is the start of more efficient trips to come!

Here was the fantastic deal I scored tonight:
