Good Deals For The Week

There are some really good deals floating around out there this week.
The first deal I scored was at Victoria's Secret. Thanks to Southern Seven. Her deal was actually much sweeter than mine. But I got 2 bras and a pair of panties for $22.46. That is pretty good for Victoria's Secret.

Next! Oh how I heart CVS! In our local paper this week, there was coupon for a $25 gift card for a new or transferred prescription. I just happen to have a prescription that I needed to fill. So off to CVS this morning.
1st Transaction: I paid $10 for the prescription and got the $25 card.

2nd Transaction: I then went back in and bought 2 Whitman's Samplers, which were on sale for $5.99 each and used 2 $2/1 coupons. My total came to $8.10OOP (which was paid with the gift card and I will use these for Christmas presents.)

3rd Transaction: I bought 10 Ice Cubes Sugar Free gum on sale $1 each. I had 5 $1/2 coupns so my total OOP $5.10 and recieved $5 ECBs.

4th Transaction: This one is a little messed up because the cashier screwed it up. I went in last night with the plan of buying 2 packs of Pampers which are on sale 2/$20. When I walked in, they had what was left of Halloween for 75% off. So I grabbed 2 plastic pumpkin buckets with hopes of this next year. My total was $30 and I paid $5.22 OOP and received $5 ECBs. I used 2 $1.50/1 Pampers coupons and I had $15 ECBs. Remember everything I am spending now is being paid for by the CVS gift card. Anyway, when I went to the car, I realized that I paid too much. She had charged me for 6 pumpkins instead of 2. So I went back in and told her and I just decided to get 4 more pumpkins instead of waiting on a refund which would only amount to $1.90 anyway. So that's why it was messed up.

But my best deal by far was filling my car with gas for $45. That is half of what I have been paying for gas. 2 weeks ago it took $85 to fill up. Now at $1.97 a gallon, we are feeling a little relief in our budget.

Now give me some ideas for the pumpkins. I could just store them until next year. I also thought about taking the handles off and spray painting them gold and using them for a table centerpiece or I could spray paint them totally orange (to cover up the jack o lantern face) and use them to give away Thanksgiving goodies to teachers. Do you have any brilliant ideas? Let me know.

As I was reading this my doorbell rang. It was Victoria Secret calling. I got my bras and panties! Be warned! There is a catalog included. With a 15 year old male I discretely put it back in the package.
