Stalking the Wild Pistachio......

Off Christmas shopping yesterday down by the downtown Rite-Aid so I stopped in to see if the elusive Pistachios had found their way to that store.
Success!

I found 2 forlorn bags shoved on a bottom shelf over by the nuts and jerky.
No signage at all....that's probably why they still had them because nobody could find them in the store.
Even the employees I asked who were stocking shelves had no clue if they had them or what they looked like.lol

Transaction #1....


1 x big honking bag of Pistachios on sale=$4.88
2 x Bic Pens w/wellness disc.=$3.82*these white bodied pens are MORE expensive than the clear body pens, I
wonder why?
2 x Mini Wheats Cereal on sale=$5.00
1 x Chloraseptic on sale=$3.59*my 20% discount was lower than the sale price.
2 x Revlon Nail Polish BOGO50%=$7.18
