I have had a great weekend, but these days are certainly busy. On Friday husband and I went Christmas shopping. Now, I have done a lot of shopping, and much was done last summer. However, this is the first time that husband has really gone with me. We scratched off a few more names from the list and we are getting close. On Saturday I traveled with a friend to another town for a bridal shower for her future daughter in law. That was a very fun day. What did I do today? Not much. We ate a simple lunch at home after church and I made two trips to Walgreens. Funny thing is that I had just told husband last week that I was not buying anymore cereal until I got a deal. He loves his cereal as I have explained quite a few times on this blog. I just cannot believe that I used to actually pay about $4.00 a box back in the old days. Now I will not pay more than $1.00 because I know if I wait, I will get a deal. The deal is here! Husband can rest assured that his cereal stash is protected from dwindling.
Walgreens has cereal $1.99 a box, which for some is a good deal, but not good enough for me. Thank you Target for posting a manufacturer's coupon on your site which gave me an additional $5.00 off of 4 boxes! That made my cereal only .74 cents a box! Better than I had hoped. Everything in the picture below came to $9.37. I also earned a $5.00 register reward from the Triaminic to use later.
The above picture shows:
- 8 boxes of cereal
- 2 boxes of Kleenex
- 2 boxes of Triaminic Thin Strips ( I made money on these)
- 4 packages of Chinet
- 1 gallon of milk
All for $9.37!
You can copy my deals, I found all of them at Common Sense With Money. (check my sidebar)
Other than "robbing" Walgreens, as husband puts it. I took a nap and watched a movie with hubby this evening.
A restful end to a busy weekend.
