One thing I can pretty much guarantee I will never buy are end mills. I’m not even sure what they’re for! I’ll just leave that kind of thing to the husband while I stick to buying accessories and items for our house. And, clothes for our daughter since she is SO much fun to shop for.

Cell Phone Frustration

This post brought to you by Sprint. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am so over my ridiculous cell phone bill. I understand that we both have smartphones (and with me driving all over Northwest Georgia for my freelancing job, I need a phone that has internet and maps capability), but it’s still ridiculous.

And, I hate, hate, HATE our current provider. We’ve been looking at some of the other providers, and one that I want to go talk to is Sprint, which has the iPhone (my current phone) as well as other smartphones. There are some other great promotions going on right now, too. You can get the Nexus S™ 4G for free when you open a new line of service or add to your account (Nexus S 4G free online savings as the $50 mail in rebate converts to instant  plus $99.99 web only savings).


Or, you can get the HTC EVO™ 3D for only $49.99 when you add a new line of service or add to your account (HTC EVO 3D at $49.99 online only savings as the $50 mail in rebate converts instantly plus $50 web only savings).

You can also get your activation fees waived for new lines of services and free shipping on I think it’s definitely time for us to look for a new provider, and Sprint may just be our first stop.

Weekly Totals 02/03

Wow. I am still amazed by last week’s shopping trip. I wanted to get a great scenario to hit $100 before coupons so I could get the $10 Publix gift card. I had a ton of free product coupons, and I had two rain checks from the previous week, so I was hoping those items were back in stock as it would give me $20 toward my total and I’d get them all for free. Unfortunately, only the tuna was back in stock. That leaves my 10 free boxes of popcorn for another trip.

So, for $150 in groceries before sales and coupons, my total was $37. BUT, I had a $25 Publix gift card, so I only paid $12 OOP for 92 percent savings! AND, I got my $10 gift card to use on my next trip.

Here’s my haul:
(4) bags of frozen veggies (free plus overage)
(2) packages of Carefree pantyliners ($0.14 total)
(1) Santitas tortilla chips ($2)
(1) Pillsbury cinnamon rolls (free product coupon)
(1) Aleve ($3 coupons = $1.99)
(1) Hamburger buns ($0.99)
(1) Bread ($1.89)
(2) Kikkoman soy sauce (2-$1 coupon = $0.78 total)

(2) 1.25 L Cokes (B1G1 = $0.99 total)
(2) Lloyds BBQ tubs (2-$1/1 = $3.99 total)
(1) Sponges ($2.49)
(6) Starkist tuna pouches (free plus overage)
(2) Buddig turkey breast pouch ($1.78)

(1) Box Minute Rice ($1/1 = $1.29)
