Discovered a CVS

April 12th, 2013 at 07:58 am

When I transfer trains at the downtown station, I have a fairly long wait on the trip home. Lately I've been getting bored just sitting on the train, waiting for it to go, so I've started exploring the station a bit more. I found that I can take a pedestrian walkway to a CVS -- what a great find! I have never really been able to take advantage of CVS deals because there has never been one very close to me.

Yesterday I bought a tube of lip balm ($4) and the machine spit out a $1.50 rewards coupon as well as four more coupons for cosmetic and personal items and greeting cards. Some of them are $2 off a $5 purchase, which is pretty good. I will definitely be checking out the CVS between trains from now on.

I took a tumble right in the street last night while walking home. I don't know if I hit a slick spot, or what, I was down so fast. I fell on my knees, and while they are scraped and hurt like crazy, I seem to be undamaged otherwise. The worst part is that it was a busy street -- I really had to get back on my feet fast or I could have been in a dangerous situation! But all is well.

I'm looking forward to finishing up my taxes this weekend so I can just write the check and get this expense done with! It's going to feel like a fresh start. I'm really glad that I'll just be able to write a check and won't have to take anything from savings.

    Sorry you fell. Hope your knees aren't too bad. Glad you got up and avoided a major disaster.

    Ouch! I know from experience that Advil helps painful knees after a fall on ice. Those falls also hurt self impression when you go down on a busy walkway without warning.

    Yes, I'm a big Advil fan, and it has helped. But not my self esteem!
