Soooo...the last couple of days I went to Homeland three different times...I spent about a total of $13 and got:

2 boxes Puffs
2 Olay Ribbons bodywash
2 Buddig Deli Selects
1 Revlon Nail Clipper
2 Betty Crocker pouch mashed potatoes
1 Wholly Guacamole
2 Big Red 2-liters (for the Super Bowl party tonight)
1 8-oz container sour cream
1 package tortillas
1 Sunday paper
2 boxes of Wheat Thins

Soooo...not too bad. I haven't been able to shop at CVS or Walgreens that much...because their deals haven't been that great. I did buy quite a bit of Garnier shampoo and styling items at Walgreens when it was near free, but mainly I have been trying to cut back. Aren't we all, though?

The truth is, my paychecks have been shrinking. But praise God, my boss is gonna start me working more hours again, so it won't be too bad.

Garage Sale Find of the Day

Tuesday, November 18, 2008


Well, I finally got a computer printer! Then I found out that I have to buy a USB cable...sigh. Well, I got one, and I had to get a new mouse. The old one was no longer hacking it. Which basically leaves me with only the monitor and the speakers from my old set-up.

What $1.40 Will Buy

Okay, so technically I spent $5.40, since I used my last $4 catalina...but still.

*2 boxes Nestle Hot Cocoa
*1 pouch Betty Crocker potatoes
*1 bag Doritos
*3 bottles Garnier Fructis shampoo (still have one more coupon!)
*1 jar Bertolli pasta sauce
*1 package Ronzoni Bistro dinner
*1 box Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta

PLUS...I still have coupons for more stuff. The aforementioned Garnier Fructis, a couple of coupons for Splenda (that I will buy sweetner packs with), and a coupon for a box of Progresso Chicken Broth (if I can find the silly things!)

All of these were purchased at Homeland, in the space of several transactions. I try to space out my visits over several days, so that I'm not buying all the remaining stock. I have coupons for almost all these items, making them pretty darn close to free.
