Busy Week

Going back to school is rough.  I am tired. 

 It is almost 9:00, but I have an appointment with my treadmill, so I am cutting this post short.

This has been a tremendous week as far as bargains go.  I have probably purchased about $300.00 worth of stuff for about $50.00 out of pocket.  Other than the two pictured Walgreens trips, I have made about 3 other trips and about 3 to CVS.  I just keep reading about a deal online, finding the coupons for it and then I am off to repeat it.  I live VERY close to both stores so I can easily do that.  

I am enjoying myself.  Yesterday however, I did no deals.  I came home from school with a pretty serious migraine and was in bed by a little after 8:00.  

Well, I gotta go.  Treadmill is calling...

I bought KS Tissue 17.99 (36 rolls)

I bought a ww scale 36.99 with coupon 15.99

I bought 225 chinet plates 13.69 with coupon for 10.69

2 containers of liquid plumber 9.59

Subtotal 58.50, sales tax, 5.78..for 64.24..

Then a Rebate coupon of 26.76..

Out the door I spent 37.52..I felt so stinkin' good..Then I thought of you again, and was wishing we had a cvs here. Your deals continue to amaze me and inspire me to work better on my family budget.
