and boy - not all laughs either!!
i was thinking today as i went to pick up some Rx's at the pharmacy - years ago it was easy to spend $50.00 in there - lipstick , perfume and skin creams. the latest bonus buy with free gift - some yummy chocolate maybe. -

of course i still buy vitamins and shampoo - but now all the BEAUTIFYING products have morphed into digestive aids, gastrointestinal remedies YUCK YUCK YUCK!!!
my bag today was a commercial for 'the tummy rumbles' .
how times change and not always by choice.

    I'm guilty as charged! Luckily where I live we don't have a very big pharmacy!

    We're guilty of buying extra vitamins but skimpy on most of the other drug store paraphinalia. Times... they are a changing, alright. emoticon

    i don't get too much at the drug store. my scrips come by mail, i get my vitamins and shampoo to the grocery, and i've never been a fan of "free gift with purchase". but the things i buy at the grocery have changed. more fresh or frozen veggies and fruit, less cookies, crackers and ice cream.

    When I see all the fake stuff on the shelves, I always think,"Did grandma need or use any of this stuff?" IF the answer is no, I pass.. She lived to be 88 years old with her own teeth, never got a zit and never was fat.. never had a stomach ache or headache(My mom or aunt never did either!!)
    I use baking soda, vinegar, old fashioned stuff, anybody ever buy witch hazel anymore instead of Lancome or Revlon or any brand name toners or astringents, to remove makeup or clean their skin? Very cheap, is the base of what they sell without the fancy name, bottle or perfumes in it..
