Weekly Totals ~ 5/31/13


I didn’t do a ton of shopping this week, but I did want to make a CVS run to use my $6/$30 purchase coupon. The ad wasn’t spectacular, but I was able to get a few things we use for almost nothing OOP!

I also made a Dollar General run for CHEAP Schick razors. Each pack had 3 razors and cost me $0.85, so you’re talking $0.28 per razor. Not bad!

Kellogg’s Special K Granola x 3 = $7.60

Twix = $0.75

Starbucks K-Cups = $5.99

U by Kotex Liners = $3.99

Schick Hydro Razor = $9.99

Schick Razors x 6 = $5.10

I had $15 in ECB from a previous trip, and I got another $5 ECB from the CVS Beauty Club when I scanned my Extra Care Card today, so I ended up paying $1.82 for $41.43 worth of items, and I got back $9.75 in ECB for a future trip at CVS! I used (2) $3/1 Schick Razor coupons and (2) $6/2 Schick Razor coupons at Dollar General, making each pack just $0.85! And, of course, the day after I shopped, Dollar General put out a $2/$10 purchase coupon. Ugh! Oh well.

Now, for the weekly total:

Total Retail: $70.53
Total OOP: $6.92
ECB Remaining: $9.75
Total Percentage Saved: 91%

Want a laugh for your Friday? I have some good ones for you!

Lucy: I want to go to the beach and build sandcastles and get sea shells. But,  I don’t want crabs.
Me: Do you want to go to the beach with Aunt Lisa?
Lucy: Does Aunt Lisa have crabs?

Lucy (while packing her baby doll’s diaper bag): I have to go to work. I have to make money to buy toys for me. I have to not take a nap. I have to go to work. I’m not tired, stop saying that.

You’re welcome. 🙂 Have a great weekend!

Things that go Barf in the Night!

So. The other night. It was around 2:30 a.m., and I reached down in my sleep to pull our comforter up. And, felt something wet.

My first thought? Did Lucy come in here and throw up??

I know. I know. It made no sense. But, I was half asleep. We tossed the comforter off to deal with it in the morning, and that was that.

Until a little bit later when I rolled over. Into throw up. Yes, THROW UP. As in all over my arm. Apparently, JOE’S cat threw up (as he does pretty regularly) and decided to do so IN OUR BED.

Are you laughing yet? It is pretty funny when, you know, you’re not going through it.

So, we got up and changed the sheets. At 2:30 a.m. I resisted the urge to shower since I had gotten THROW UP all over my arm and just scrubbed it REALLY well in the sink. And then, we were finally back to bed.

The next day, I didn’t see Dizzy at all. Until nap time, that is, when he laid on top of me. Really??
