CVS trip 3/29/09

I didnt do many deals yesterday because I had my daughters' birthday party yesterday. I did however make it to CVS :D. I did 1 transaction to get all of my goodies. I am not sure what my OOP would be-for me it was lilke $3 because I had so many ECB's saved up that I got tired of rolling all of them and burned some up.

I got
6 sally hansen nailpolishes
4 bags of m and m's
3 ponds towellettes
2 veet
2 lasting impressions
1 sense and spray
3 clean and clear
4 paas egg coloring
