    Okay, my one indulgence is chocolate. We have been having near record snow in the area where I live and so I went close to two weeks without getting out of the house. Cabin fever is bad enough, but I was running out of chocolate! Finally yesterday dawned sunny and bright, the roads had been plowed and I go out of the ‘cabin’. I had $15 in CVS extra bucks and a $5 off $25 in purchases coupon. So I went shopping for chocolate. Peanut M&Ms are one of my more favorite treats. I found the Valentine (pink and red packages) for 3 for $7.00, the regular ones (yellow package) for $4.29 and the Christmas package (green with red and green M$Ms) for $2.15 for the package. All packages were the same size and the same contents only different colors and you can’t taste colors. You could tell by the different shelves they were located on that people had been buying all three different packages with no thought to the price. I also can’t believe that someone buying Valentine M&Ms will still have that same bag available for Valentine’s Day ;) I bought the Christmas M&Ms and stocked up a bit besides as I don’t trust our weather at all this year. I did this on 1-4-14 so we aren’t even talking about sales on the 26th. CVS still had plenty of Christmas stuff marked down 75% off that I passed by. Between my extra bucks and other discounts for the stuff I was buying, I saved 67% at the store. Don’t forget I intentionally went to buy chocolate at CVS so this wasn’t a spur of the moment purchase.

    I did forget to get a new calendar. This is the first time no one has given us one. I bet they were in an isle I didn’t walk down and would have been deeply discounted.

    Yes I love after season markdowns for things I’m going to use or eat anyhow! Love CVS for the great discounts and coupons and extra bucks!
