I've seen friends on Facebook post that you can take bottles you've got to CVS for a replacement with the CVS brand generic.

Sigh. This is mildly worrisome but mostly a pain in the butt.  Must find time to replace the bottles.  Will try not to take them for a refund and then spend the refund on lip gloss, chocolate or other much more fun products.

What is up with springtime?  This year I actually HAVE Benadryl in the cabinet because of allergies.  I want the colds and misery to stay well ensconced in autumn and winter thankyouverymuch.  But I suppose I have to replace. Gah.
