Shoppers Drug Mart Savings March 24, 2012

ImageI’m back! I am happy to tell you I passed my exam. It was almost a week ago but I have been busy playing catch up around the house as I put off a lot of things while I was studying. Frugal shopping was one of those things. The couple times I stopped by the store to pick up a few things, it actually was painful to see the total as I did not plan out the shops or use coupons.

Last night after a delicious dinner of Thai food with my good friend, we stopped at Shoppers. It was 20x the points after all.
