    I’m confused by her $28.07 total. With the prices she listed for the four items it should be $21.73. Right? Or were they sale prices and maybe the register rings up the full price and then takes the discount later?

    • Katie says:

      Heather- she was listing full retail price with the 28.07. CVS regular retail prices are so inflated I really don’t pay that number any attention- the 21.73 (sale prices) is what you would normally pay at wal mart etc so still an awesome deal!
