Garage Sale Time!

All this week I am working on my garage sale. I am finally getting to the point of the sale that I love. I've went through most of my things and piled them out in the garage and this week I get to start cleaning and organizing the garage. The best part is the weather looks like it is going to be great all week and through the weekend.

I went to CVS today and they had about 6 Contour monitors in stock!! I was so happy. I picked up two and used my $30 coupons to get two $5.00 Extra Care bucks with two cards. I normally don't use two cards. In fact, at one time I had five extra care cards (one for each member of the family) and they all had extra care bucks on them. In my prime CVS days, I would hold a balance of about $60 in extra care bucks on each card. I got a lot of free and nearly free things, but the "stress" of driving to different CVS's and trying to keep the ECB rolling wasn't worth it to me.

Now, I have one primary card and I currently have just the $5.00 extra care buck on it. I used my spare card today only because it was a free $5 ECB and I had the Contour coupons. I will most likely use this extra $5 ECB within the next few days so I will be back to just the one card. The chances of me rolling the ECB on my primary card are also very slim. Again, I'm just not that into CVS anymore.

I also picked up two boxes of Shredded Mini Wheats today. They are buy one get one free and I had a buy one get one free coupon from Vocalpoint making both boxes free!

I went to Meijer today and got:
2 cans Dole Mandarin Oranges = $1 each - (2) $.50 Qs doubled = Free
2 boxes Nabisco 100 calorie snacks = $2.50 each - (2)$.50qs - (2) Meijer mealbox q's = $2 for both
1 box of Meijer ice cream = $2.50 - get free promotion if you buy 2 Nabisco snacks = Free
10 BAGS of McCains frozen french fries = $.64 - $.75q's = Free

GRAND TOTAL OUT OF POCKET = $2.11 !!!!!!!!

Make sure you watch your coupons - I noticed they missed one of my coupons. :( They were sooo busy today and there was an awful nasty/grumpy woman using the self-checkout next to me. I felt so sorry for my cashier because he really was doing the best he could considering how busy they were.

I will be going back to Meijer to get more free fries later this week. No, I didn't take them all, seriously, there were a ton there. I hope to get well stocked for the summer. That's an easy addition to a meal when the kids have friends over.
