CVS bargain

This is not a post I've been meaning to add. But something did happen this evening so I thought I would get this up here real quick!

I had to run M to Girl Scouts this evening and since the parents can't stay I ran over to CVS to get some duct tape. (That story will be another post!) While there I saw their Halloween was 90% off! What a deal! I've never been in CVS, I'm more of a Walgreen's girl. Nothing against CVS, this is just the first time I've ever lived near one.

I filled out the 'paperwork' and got my card!

I figured I'd grab a couple of wigs that were regular $4.99. So in my head I was thinking, "90% off that? That's cheap!! I grabbed four....well why not? I have 4 girls and I might want to wear one!!
So I was checking out!
girl: do you have your CVS card?
(Mind you, this is the little lady that took my info)
Me:yes mam, here you go!
(Are you kidding me? Of course I have my card! I JUST got it!!)
(I should have known right there, things were not going to go the 'right' way!)
girl: Well, these aren't ringing up the way they are supposed to....so....what's 90% off of 4.99??
Me:looking at the girl and smiling, shrugging my shoulders, thinking, I don't know. my brains not working. do you have a calculator????
girl: Okay, well, I'm going to take off $3.00
Me:I'm kinda in a hurry, do what you can.(thinking in a nice way, i don't want to think rude thoughts!)
girl: Okay, your total is: $8.62
me: Okay! (that sounds kind of high, but she's the one with name tag!)
girl: have a nice night!

I head out to the car, kind of in a hurry, only because S is home with 3 children and 1 is a baby and he gets all nervous!

I start calculating in my head that I paid WAY too much for those wigs!!!!! I was over charged $1.50 for each wig!!!

So, I run home for a bit and then go pick up M. We head over to CVS to get some money back. I know this is probably wrong, but I let the people at the store do their job and I ended up making

$1.26 out of this whole deal!!! What are the chances of that?? They put $9.88 on a CVS card for me!! How great is that?? If anyone knows of some good deals right now going on there. Let me know and I might go get me something!! Maybe I should just get more wigs!!??!!

We all look a little crazy with our red eyes!!! I guess I should have gotten rid of that before posting?!
