Was everyone as tired as I was today?? It was absurd, I can't be that tired! I think it's the cold and the winter and the fact that it just seems so dark all the time. I could get away with being a vampire in these parts these days;)
Yesterday I went to Wegmans to score some deals with coupons. I love Wegmans because its soooo fancy, they have really cool stuff there, and I think that above all around here they have the best match ups for coupons. I love shopping at ShopRite usually, because they have great deals beyond coupons although they do have some good match ups too, and I haven't had a lot of luck at Giant but I haven't tried too hard there yet because I don't go as much. Wegmans never fails me though, when I shop there it feels like I am on Extreme Couponing watching the total get lower and lower and it is exciting!! Here is what I bought last night:
2 pantene pro V
5 Ivory body wash (these smell DElightful!)
3 skintamit shave gels
2 International Delight (could have bought more but we don't have any more space in the freezer:/)
1 bag of Frozen veggies
1 French's Honey Mustard
2 jars Tabasco sauce
6 Sauve Shampoo/Conditioner
2 Boxes of Velveeta dinners (good for quick meals in a hurrrry)
1 Bag of Wegman brand chips
The total before sales a coupons was $55.77 and some change, and after coupons and deals I paid 23.16! That's almost a 60% savings! Yipee!! No, it's still not 90% like the women on the show, I really DO NOT know how they do that...I am really trying. Plus, I have enough bath & beauty products for me and Ash, and lots for Dave too, to last us over a year. That's an awesome stockpile. I only buy when I can get really great deals - otherwise I wouldn't bother stocking more! I was pretty excited at the register, so was the guy that was the cashier - I chatted about how I find the deals and all that. So fun! Still room for improvement but I'll take it!
Tonight, we had a nice family night. We went out to Chili's (coupon for free chips and queso in hand, always take a coupon!) then we went all around spending our Christmas gift cards. Best Buy, Aero, AE, and ending with HomeGoods. We had a good time! Here was a fun find in HG:
Enough of the jokes (no...but seriously want one) here are some things I did buy with my card from my sweet MIL:
Then I bought these pillows, we've been looking all around for new pillows. The silver one was supposed to be a pair but we couldn't find it in the store anywhere, so they marked it down for me. Altogether the pillows were $35 and again...I love them and don't know how I ever lived without them! LOL.
It's been a productive few days, in some ways. In other ways, not so much. The house is still a mess, coupons still need to be cut, laundry needs putting away, etc. Can't win them all! Tomorrow night is set aside to get stuff like that done. For now, I need to go to bed - I need my sleep! Night!
