Day 358: The Last Hurrah

Today was the day, friends.  The day I officially cut CVS from my life.  But I had to end our relationship with a BANG!  Seriously, it was a lot like fireworks.  Inside at least.

See this?

I paid just over $4 for it.  Four Dollars.  That's about how much one of those things of deodorant normally costs, but it's the only kind I can use.  It's the only kind that they make for women (that I can find) that doesn't include an antiperspirant.  I can't use antiperspirant.  I have a bit of a sweating problem and it ruins my shirts.

I probably shouldn't share so much.  But this Joyful Moment was so joyful, I got carried away.  Seriously, I was so proud of myself.  It took three transactions, but at least I didn't have to go back and swap out anything because I'd picked up the wrong item.  That's a first for me.  Which is part of why I had to cut CVS in the first place.  If all of my shopping trips there went as smoothly as today's, I probably wouldn't be making such a drastic decision.

But I'm sticking with it.  Which is why I had to use up my one remaining Extra Rewards Buck from the third transaction before I left the store.

So, my bag actually contained all of this:

See that $9 box of chocolates?  I paid $2.

And I bought it for myself.

So, some day in the future, you can rest assured that I will be opening that up and making a Joyful Moment.  And trying not to eat them all in one sitting.  I have a bit of a chocolate problem.

Chocolate consumption isn't related to sweating, is it?

Wishing you all Joyful Moments that don't require perspiration!

Why is it good to not have anti-perspirant when you have a sweating problem?

And thanks again for the help today!

What is CVS...I'm live on the prarie and don't know these things or why you would want to cut it out of your life when you get a whole bag of stuff for free.

I have to run to choir before adding my joy. So I'll return and do that, but before I go I have to chuckle. Have fun explaining all of this to all of us. :) Thanks for making me smile!

We unpacked boxes and boxes of frames and other decorations that have been packed for almost 2 years. We found so many things that we had forgotten about! It was fun, it was progress, and it was like Christmas. Unfortunately almost everything we unpacked is on the floor, leaning against a wall and waiting for us to decide whether to keep it and where to put it. I still Joy because we made progress; we can't make all the decisions in one day, right? :)
