Now I'm Glad I Didn't Buy More Sunscreen Last Week

This morning I ran over to CVS for milk and saw a whole cart full of $1 clearance goods by the front. Guess what it was full of?

That's right.

I knew the sunscreen would go on clearance at the end of the summer, but I didn't know it would be this soon. I grabbed a couple of the higher-end "continuous spray" bottles, which would have cost me several dollars even with the coupon last week. They filled out my transaction so I could use a 10ECB on two gallons of milk and a package of True North nuts (with $3 in coupons).

Does anyone still have those $1 (really $2) off sunscreen coupons from the machine? I found a couple of leftovers, but they are all expired. I'm guessing everyone's are expired at this point.

Too bad -- the only thing I like more than an $8 sunscreen for TWO $8 sunscreens for free.
