Recent Trip: Rite-Aid

Sorry for the brief hiatus. My husband and I went to San Francisco for a little getaway over the weekend and I'm just getting caught up.

Rite-Aid had some great deals this week, so I headed in for a few things to replenish my +UP rewards. I have to be honest, I was a little bothered by this week's shopping trip. I bought 6 items, but will only keep 2 of them. The other four will be donated, but I was feeling like they weren't great "donatable" items. I'm sure someone will use them, but something about it just struck me. I wasn't feeling guilty, just a little strange about the fact that Rite-Aid paid me $16 to take 6 items out of their store. That probably doesn't make much sense, but there is my random deep thought for the week.

Value of Items Purchased

I have purchased:

(3) 4-pack of GE Light bulbs
(1) Christmas bag
(2) Colgate Advanced Toothpaste
(2) Viactiv Calcium Chews
(2) Coricidin Flu Tablets

I spent quite a bit of the gift card this week, but with $28 in +UP Rewards to spend I should be able to get quite a bit in the next couple weeks without using the gift card for anything except tax.
