I was headed to the grocery store this afternoon, so I figured I'd swing by CVS and see if I could work a deal or two. These were thrown together quickly, so I may stop back again this week to see what else I can find.

Looks like I only paid for the candy corn!

I did want to try to get the $9.99 glucose meter, but my CVS didn't have it. I'm going to check the CVS where I work tomorrow. That would make a great donation.
