NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Consider yourself in the tiniest of minorities if you only purchase drugs at the drug store.
By design, the aisles at the pharmacy are filled with much more.
Farnoosh Torabi at Yahoo! Financial says bargains can be had at the drug store, if you know what to include and exclude from your shopping list.
She advises you shy away from purchasing boxes of cereal, small appliances or gadgets from the drug store because they're generally so much cheaper elsewhere.
Still, you'll definitely save money on flu shots, pantry foods, travel sized toiletries and especially cosmetics by picking them up at the pharmacy.
Torabi is also a fan of drug store water filtering supplies, which are 12 times cheaper than bottled water.
