I wrote this post before the Black Friday sales, but it never ended up getting published:
I'm so excited- I've had some great deals this past weekend (besides the clothing).
We got a $10 "Shop Your Way" Rewards credit (Kmart/Sears) because Hurricane Sandy affected NC a little bit. Don't ask me why, they emailed it to me, I didn't go looking for it. I took that $10, combined it with $0.07 I had already earned (heyyy big spender....) and purchased 2 jars of spaghetti sauce and 4 heat-and-eat quick meals, plus a tub of frosting for $1.71 out of pocket! Yay.
This pads our panty a little bit, though believe me when I say it was super tempting to blow it on something fun.
Today, we ran to Target. I picked up 4 cans of Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup (on sale for $0.75 each), 2 boxes of Betty Crocker's Au Gratin Potatoes ($1.00 each) and a Glade Smelly Good something or other start kit ($5.99), for which I had a free product coupon. At first, the cashier didn't actually ring up the Glade, so my free product coupon made the whole order free! Yes, I corrected him, because he looked terribly confused.
It ended up, after my $1/4 soup coupon and $0.50/2 potatoes coupon that I paid $1.00 for everything I bought. Wait what?
We got to the car and I checked the receipt- when he scanned the free Glade coupon, it gave me the "up to $8.99" value, not the cost, which was $5.99. Thank you very much Target, I appreciate the overage!
I also purchased a tube of Colgate MaxFresh toothpaste from CVS and used a $1 ECB. That means I paid $1.87 and I got a $2 ECB back! Yay for free/money maker toothpaste.
