Have you noticed, we have skipped nearly a whole month of shopping???
This is why it’s good to have a stockpile. My rib has still not healed and I just couldn’t propel this chair through the stores to shop. We got milk, eggs, bread. That’s all the last 3 1/2 weeks. Everything else, came right from the stockpile. Which, is starting to dwindle. We could comfortably go about 2 more weeks before I’d panic. Next week, rib or no rib, it’s time to start restocking!
I sent Grandpa to the store for a few things with coupons. And he did more than a fantastic job! Not only did he spend $0 out of pockets, he actually came home with over $100 cash. We ordered Chinese take out! How’d he do it? He stopped at the casino (Vegas, baby!) dropped $20 in a slot machine and hit it for $180. =) I know, technically, that does not count into the whole ‘couponing gig’ but, it counts in the saving $$ gig! And, he did do the right thing at CVS when the register wasn’t ringing up the $5 ECB’s he was supposed to get back! He called a manager over and made them correct it! I wish I would have been there to see it! He laid that down in front of me before even telling me about the slot payout! I’m SO proud!
Here’s what he got:
This week at CVS we got:
- (6) Bags CVS Brand Cottonballs
- (1) Gallon Milk
- (2) Bottles 90ct CVS Brand Vitimins
OOP: $18.08 (+ $5.00 ECB’s For Next Trip) See! If he had used his own $$ he still did awesome, right!
This week at WalMart we got:
- (1) 18lb Bag Purina One Dog Food
- (2) International Delight Creamers
- (1) 24ct Good Value Cheese
- (6) SoBo LifeWaters
- (1) 2pk Fancy Schmancy Kind of Pens Not On The List (?)
- (1) 3pk AquaTech Fish Tank Filters
- (2) Pure Heppa Air Filters For AC/Furnace
Retail: $50.00 even (no clue how he did that other then the fancy schmancy pens not only the list??)
This week it was the dog food and air filters that killed it for us and if he could hit a slot for $180 every time before we hit the stores, I’d totally let him do it!
How was your shopping spree this week?
