Walgreens.

Lately, I’ve been finding every excuse to hit up Walgreens. I love going there. Sunday, I needed sparkling water in the worst way, so after a nice breakfast of tacos and donuts, I forced Roy and Tabner to accompany me to Walgreens.

Coupons on coupons on coupons on CROUTONS? No just coupons no croutons.

Here’s the thing about Walgreens, friends (and it’s sister CVS ***they are one in the same to me***): Prices are better on some things, but not as a rule on everything. The real belle of the ball is the REWARD$ card (I have one for Walgreens AND one for CVS). I once got a dollar off my purchase with my REWARD$ card. Just cause I had used it enough. And a few times I’ve gotten cheaper mascara cause of my REWARD$ card.

Some fancier snacks. Isn’t it interesting that Walgreens (and CVS) have their own brands?

You have to be vigilant thought, because Walgreens will try to entice you to buy things you don’t reallllllly need. Except I do need those “Hot Buns”.

And I need these because fruit.

And I’ve been wanting a new hobby.

Have to get these.

So my basket ended up looking like this:

But I mean at least I’m getting points on my REWARD$ card.
And the delayed reward of a huge stomach ache.

Buffalo Exchange Morphs into Buffalo Outlet

Hey all you ‘Cullough fashionistas out there!

I routinely pass by the Buffalo Exchange on Olmos on my Sunday trips to HEB. You know Buffalo Exchange… the used clothing store where you can buy/sell/trade designer/high-ish quality clothes, shoes, and accessories. Every ‘Cullough fashionista knows about Buffalo Ex.

But this past Sunday the Buffalo looked a little different.

“Buffalo Outlet”?

What does this mean? What’s going on? How can BuffEx have an outlet store when it doesn’t even make its own clothes……isn’t it kind of already an outlet store? An outlet for someone’s old, cool clothes?

So I investigated on the Google,

And found this press release:

“Buffalo Exchange has announced it will convert its existing San Antonio location into a Buffalo Outlet in December, 2013….Buffalo Outlet will offer used and new fashions for $7 or less, including markdowns from Buffalo Exchange stores nationwide.”

SEVEN DOLLARS OR LESS—-I’M SKEPTICAL, BUFF!

So $7 or less is pretty cheap. BUT what sorts of rejected clothes end up at the Buffalo Outlet. Think about all the items you roll your eyes at when shopping at the normal BuffEx? I’m imagining Lacoste polos only in throw-up green color and tons of bedazzled jeans.

“…including markdowns from Buffalo Exchange stores nationwide.” —–So does this mean we are receiving the rest of the country’s rejects? I don’t know whether to feel offended or excited. We get the last pick of all of the BuffaloEx inventory in the whole United States!!! Glass half empty? Glass half full? Buffalo half slain? Buffalo half alive?

I will have to drop in and see for myself. You should, too! buffalo2

Has our beloved BE downgraded so hard that we can’t shop their any more? Or will $7 or less make Buffalo Outlet THE place to get seXXXy for new year’s eve and still have $$$ left over for breakfast tacos the next morning?
