Drugstore Finds: Rite Aid

Since my 5 & 10 finds and adventure  in Jim Thorpe, PA the weekend before last, I’ve been thinking a lot about the experience of buying makeup at the drug store. Not everyone wants to spend a lot of dough on things like nail polish, eye shadow or lip gloss. Hello! We’re in a recession! …
