Today is my birthday. I am 39 years old. Only one year from 40. It seems like yesterday that I was 16 and I always thought people who were 30 were old. Well, guess what? I'm getting old.
Anyway, this morning, Maci Clare and I decided to do a little freebie shopping. And I think we did pretty good.
First we hit CVS. I had to get a prescription filled anyway. (BTW, the prescription was only $3.21, which I could not believe.) So here's what we got:
2 boxes of Glucerna Cereal
1 20 oz. Diet Dr. Pepper
1 box of Carnation Instant Breakfast
1 pkg. Super Sticky Post-its
1 small, compact Tape Dispenser with tape
1 Pentak Pen
1 pkg. of Romance Lotto Cards
Total=$21.10 OOP=$7.85 (really nothing because I used a gift card that was given to me by CVS for a new prescription.) I got $4.99 ECBs back.
Next, we went to Walgreen's. Here's how we did:2 boxes of Fiber One Granola Bars
2 boxes of Starbuck's Chocolate
1 box of envelopes
6 bars of Dove soap
1 bottle of Vaseline Intensive Care Rescue Lotion
TOTAL=$26.12 OOP=$10.55 I got $6 back in RR to use on my next order.
I am going to go back tonight and try to buy some more Starbuck's chocolates, soap, and lotion and maybe granola bars.
Zane was too!
This is what it looked like outside so you see I wasn't exaggerating when I said we really didn't get that much snow. I think the kids just enjoyed the peace and rest. We also lost power for quite a while so we had lots of rest time.
I have not forgotten about the giveaway just having a hard time trying to make time to get to it. But I promise it is coming. Jim and I are going to Atlanta on Saturday afternoon and spend the night (another trip to IKEA, YAY!) So I will try to post the giveaway before I leave.
