Torpedo Wart Remover Kits

I did some shopping before work today, and when I went out to my car on my lunch break, I discovered that my whole backseat was a huge mess. One of my packages had been torn open and my purchases were strewn about the seat. At first, I thought - oh my god, someone broke into my car! But then it slowly dawned on me that all my windows were up, my doors were locked and what would anyone break into my car for anyway? Shampoo? I think not. I opened the door and closely examined the mess. This is what I found.
Look familiar at all? Would you like a hint? Here you go!
Yes, that's right. These are the remains of the wart remover kit I bought at RA this morning. Blown up. Exploded. Torn up in the blazing heat of my parked car. One piece torpedoed its way through a thick Electrasol box and there was debris on the front seat of my car. I'm just glad it didn't hit or damage any of my windows. And luckily, there doesn't seem to be any leaks of the spray on the seat.

I went to 2 Walgreens today looking for the Gum toothbrushes and neither store had them. And my city isn't a big couponing city so I'm not sure if they just didn't receive them or what.

Amanda,
Hmm, I guess Walgreens didn't stock this deal too well.

central,
Seriously!

Debtfree,
I know! That would have been really dangerous.

Queen,
Yup, I had deodorant-scented RR's for a while there.

Regarding your Electrasol deal - you have to buy $20 worth of items (5 boxes) to get the $10 ECB.

Love your blog!!!
