I haven't written much here because I haven't shopped much.
Last Friday, I went to Hallmark and bought a Webkinz and a Webkinz lipgloss because the big kid had a birthday party to attend. I was pleasantly surprised to find both of them half price at check-out. $10.24 for both. Yay!
And then I had to go to CVS for "feminine supplies". I could've shopped around a found a better price, but I can walk to CVS (but I didn't). I did use coupons on those but while I was there I saw that if you bought $25 of Huggies products you'd receive $10 bucks in CVS bucks so I bought two packs of pull-ups at 10 bucks a piece and a huge refill pack of wipes at 5 bucks. I didn't need them right then, but I will eventually and I can go back and use the bucks to buy four gallons of milk at some point. I also got Herbal Essences shampoo for 99 cents because it was on sale and I had a two dollar coupon. I LOVE their new Hydralicious shampoo but I refuse to buy it at $4.59 so this was a nice bargain to me. I've been loving my new shampoo this week. Almost makes up for the crappy forty-five dollar haircut I got with my Christmas money. That's another story I just don't want to relive.
I had to break down and go to the grocery store. We weren't able to go on our vacation this week so I needed some things to tide us over until next week when I can go on a big trip. On Saturday I spent $22.37 and on Tuesday I spent $59.52. Not bad, but I didn't get anything to make meals with just snacks and sandwich fixings. With the thirty dollars I spent last month on April's angel food box, I've spent a total so far in April of $111.89 for groceries. I still hope to keep our month total under $250, but I know I'll be buying a lot next week. Here's hoping there will be good sales.
