I had a very confusing shopping trip today, so my totals are not adding up this week. The cashier messed up the transaction completely, and it does not make any sense, so my totals are a bit off. I do know that I ended up with less Extra Bucks than I had first calculated, and he also threw in two boxes of extra Skinny Cow candy. I did end up paying close to the same out of pocket amount as I had planned on, so I left without complaining. Sometimes life is just too short to be bothered….even for a frugalista.
If anyone is wondering, the CVS Christmas clearance was still at 50 percent off.
