notes:my store was out of the nova max meters, which i had been counting on to spend my $12 eb expiring today. i wandered around for some time before i got this transaction together. but i should have done a price check on the xmas lights, because they rang up $1 less than marked - thats why i ended up throwing in yet another pack of cashews!
