Shopping Hobby....

I know, how can I have a shopping hobby while my husband is out of work. Well, a friend recently described me as being able to spend the same dollar three times. I said...only three? Last night after dinner we went to Super Walmart. We don't go there often but I was doing a little "research" on Hot Coupon World and found there were some super deals there. So...we loaded the kids up and off we went. Whew...did I ever get the deals. The time I spent on that website definitely pays off. Here is a photo of what I got......



Guess how much I paid for it? Well, I will tell you this - I paid full price for the Borax & the Dora stickers (I told Elise I would start giving her a sticker when she goes on the potty...she is still doing really well.) Did you come up with a total??? Well, I am not going to make you wait. I paid $12.71. I was a little upset that is was so high! The cashier looked at the total and said..."Wait, is that right?". I just smiled (not smug at all). The original price was close to $40. Wow.

I also went to Giant Eagle yesterday for some of their deals. I got 5 - 1 lb bags of cat food and a free bag of cat treats. I also got a kid's shampoo for free. Then I got some super deals like a 20 fresh turkey for less than $12.

I haven't been going to CVS that much. I have a few extra bucks saved up but I didn't really like the deals they had this week. I need to look again. On April 1st I get my 6% (triple rewards) from my winter spending in extra bucks. Hopefully they have some good deals so I can just keep rolling them. I need to be strict about only buying things that earn extra bucks....although I do think CVS has good sales.

I got a tube of toothpaste, 3 2 liters of pop and 4 box of Kleenex at CVS for $0.17! Of course I used $9 in ECB and only got $3 back, but the pop and Kleenex were cheap this week. We needed Kleenex and K needs some empty 2 liters for a project. The offers this week weren't all that exciting. I haven't checked the sites for others stores. I should.

Would you be interested in doing my grocery shopping?? I ALWAYS spend WAY too much at the grocery store! BTW, what is in the little bottles?
