another trip to CVS... grr

well I had to go ruin my day by going to another CVS.. grr.. lol
the other CVSs were all out of everything I needed except the paper towels. I had my trip all planned out, and that just busted my planning.. and I always choke and end up spending more OOP than I wanted, or originally planned.. Oh and the guy was trying to limit me on how many papers I could get. I told him they were out of everything else and I was not going to leave without 4 pks of paper towels.. not that same way of course, he talked to mgr and she okay'd it.. so here is what I ended up getting.
