Went to Kroger and CVS

I was so excited to find out that Kroger is continuing their sale on some of the items from last week's ad. Today I used the last two of my $.50 SoftSoap coupons because they are still on sale for $1 each. I ended up getting 42 free SoftSoaps from Kroger and Meijer. I saved some for my stockpile but I've given at least half of my total away. Krogers also has Powerade Zero on sale for $.88 a bottle. If you use the $.40 off coupon from 1/4 SS it makes them only $.08 a bottle. Unfortunately, someone at my Kroger cleared out the red Powerade Zeros, which are our favorites, so I picked up a couple of grape flavored.

I also stopped by CVS today and picked up some $.28 Revlon eyeshadow with the $2.00 coupon from 1/11 SS. The eye shadow was clearanced at 50% off. I also picked up a new Christmas tree skirt clearanced at 90% off for $.25.

Blogging at the library - I'm so hip (sorta)

Well today I am spending the afternoon at the library and I decided to blog because, well, isn't that what all the creative people do?

Actually I am being forced to spend time here because I have to get some Ebay work done and I need an internet connection. I can not go home because the weather is absolutely awful outside and I can not drive up our steep, slippery hill. My husband drives me around in weather like this and until I pick the children up from school, and he gets off work, I am going to camp here at the library. If I do go home I will have to trek it, in the sub-zero temperatures, through snow, and I do not feel like doing that today.

I am so thankful for my laptop.

Meijer Run for under $2.00

I dodged the snowflakes today and made a run to Meijer. I bought everything in the above picture and also a couple of the Betty Crocker potatoes (used coupons for them too) and a 2-liter of Pepsi. The grand total for everything using coupons, was under $2.00.

Not everything I purchase today is in the picture. I only posted a picture of all the items I got FREE with coupons from Meijer. I had to do three separate transactions for the soap, since my Meijer only doubles two like coupons.

I also received a catalina for 70 points in Box Tops for Education!

No big bargains today

I didn't make my usual Sunday run today. The weather was icy this morning and there were not enough great bargains to venture out. I did make it to Walmart this evening to pick up my last, nearly free with coupon, pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream. The Stephen Colbert's Americone Dream is my absolute favorite!

Here is what I did today...

I cleaned out the fridge!! Sparkly! Jealous!?! LOL


Last night we used some of our FREE movie tickets from the Ponds deal back in September, to go to the new 3-D movie Bolt with my littlest one. He loved it - and so did I. The hamster and the pigeons were my favorite. I know the movie has been out for quite a while, but to use our free tickets we have to trek to the 'big city'. So, if you haven't seen this movie yet - I highly recommend it. Go!
