    The CVS on Hillsborough Road in Durham has free samples of the new Tums Freshers by the third cash register from the door. Each packet has a $1/1 coupon on it.

    I was going to order my daughter's glasses from Zenni, but her perscription strengthen was not listed correctly, my dr's office said people bring in their internet purchased glasses to be checked and 9 times out of 10 they aren't made correctly. We ended up going to Walmart, they were pretty inexpensive.

    finesse, If you don't want to go with an online option ( I have heard very good things about Zenni as Melissa mentioned), Walmart also has a very affordable line of glasses. We got my daughter's glasses there for the last 2 years and they are adorable and the glasses guys were very nice about adjusting. I seem to recall some frames that were as low as $19.99, I think.

    Zenni is still cheaper but you can't try them on in real life. Zenni is great for a back up pair as well.

    My husband and I use Zenni Optical for our glasses: http://www.zennioptical.com/
    We measured our old glasses and try to get ones that are similar in size. I typically order several at a time as they run as low as $10 and if I don't like them, I don't wear them!

    I've never bought glasses online before. How do you know what to order or if they'll really fit? Mine are always having to be adjusted so they don't wobble, etc. Of course, I guess you can always take them to your eye dr and ask them to adjust them. My drs office doesn't charge for that. Just takes a couple minutes when they aren't busy w/patients the drs shuttle over to them.

    This is a great site for inexpensive glasses. Go to an eye doctor for a Rx, and then order on the internet:
