December 30- Winter tree, CVS and current book

Hello everyone 
All the Christmas decorations are packed away and I put out this little silver tree with wintery looking decorations. 
There are still gifts here for one set of grands that we haven’t seen this month.

I went to CVS to coupon shop for the first time since maybe Feb.  
I only had some newpaper coupons and a few CVS coupons that were on my account.  
I spent almost $37 and got back $10 and will get back $3 for beauty in a few days.
Certainly not the best I’ve ever done at CVS.  A few of the CVS coupons that I thought would deduct, didn't.  
I will definitely use the $13 in the near future but I’m not sure I’ll be jumping back into CVS couponing,  

My parent’s retirement home has a pretty big library but I’ve never really looked in there.  This week when I walked by,  I saw 2 books that caught my eye so I brought them home. 
This is the 3rd book in a series of 6 but it is a stand alone book that can be read without reading the previous ones.  
I started it last night and it’s really good. 
I thought it was funny that this book was purchased in San Clemente CA,  which is right beside the Marine base we lived aboard.  

Hope you are all fine 
❤️ Rhonda

I too decided to take down the Christmas decorations a bit early. I usually wait until just after the New Year. I like the colours of your decorated little tree. Thank you for the book recommendation. I've checked out a digital copy just now. Last, but not least, Happy New Year.

That's a beautiful silver tree. I'd try something like that but really don't have a place to put it.

I noticed the crocheted snowman. Did your mom make it?

I haven't been in CVS in almost a year either...I never did as well as you with coupons and such but I did well enough. However, I admittedly haven't missed going in either. So much easier to look things up on Amazon and check prices, then order online. Less temptation for me, too, so I don't do as much impulse purchasing.

The CVS nearest us began to look as though they were going out of business with very poor stock etc well before February last year and the next closest isn't as user friendly...Isn't it funny that stores can be the same franchise/brand but their personalities so very different?

Admittedly I don't mind shopping online...It means I can stay home which is nice.

I love the silver and blue tree! I have read some of her books and they were good.

Happy New Year!
