It was a catching up kind of weekend. I was running low on cleaning essentials and some grocery items. Target had a great coupon in last Sunday's paper that was good for a week - spend $50 on cleaning supplies and get $20 off. Plus, you could use manufacturer's coupons on top of the big one. I was able to get 2 big packs of paper towels, 1 pack of toilet paper, Cascade dishwasher tablets, 2 large bottles of Dawn, mega bottle of PineSol and Clorox wipes. Final cost was $24.78.
Next up was grocery shopping. I do my big shopping at Wal-Mart and then pick up miscellaneous items that are better prices at the other stores near me. I'm lucky that I have so many choices within a 2-mile radius. I went to get a gallon of milk at Wal-Mart - $4.08!! I couldn't do it. Just couldn't. I checked Food Lion: $3.89. Better, but then I remembered seeing something on the weekend deals at Harris Teeter. $2.79 - score! While I was at Food Lion, I picked up some ground beef marked down to $2.59. I had a $2 coupon for meat, so ... 59 cents. Woo hoo!
It's the little things that make my day :)
DS is on Spring Break, which means I won't have to fill up on gas twice this week. Oh, and today it's going to be ... wait for it ... 76 degrees!!!!
For a Monday, this one is shaping up to be OK.
