Quick Rite Aid Stop

I did a quick Rite Aid stop yesterday. They were out of stock on a number of items. Why is it you go to a store on Monday and they are out of stock on things? *sigh* I know I work at a drug store too, but this is why managers order merchandise weeks out. It's not like they don't know it's going to be a good deal.

I wanted a Schick Hydro 5, but they were out and only one lonely Hydro 3 on the peg. I would have waited, but sometimes they don't get Ad items on their truck. I was hoping for more Nivea, but there were only 6 on the shelf. I brought the $2/2 coupons only and needed to buy 4 in order to get over $25. I left two for the next person to come along. Not many options on the toothbrushes.

Completely wiped out on toothpaste. Not that it surprises me. free after +up without any coupons and no apparent limit? I like high limits and all, but please place some kind of limit on the thing! Like 5 or 10 . . . something? I've read on different blogs about people taking 17 at one time! How much toothpaste do you need? I hope someone buying that many is putting them to a good cause.

I still have $12 +up that expire at the end of the week, so I will need to make another trip out there. I am hoping that they have some of the toothpaste in by then so I can use up some coupons & +up. I did better than I expected. Here's hoping for another good round latter in the week. ^_^
