Free stuff and errands

April 2nd, 2006 at 09:01 pm

walked with mom for 55 min

Went to the grocery store and spent $21.50 on food and $7.49 on a new paperback. I buy a lot fewer books than I used to, but still like to purchase ones that I know I will read over and over. I can't believe the prices on some of the new paperbacks, $9.99 for a paperback if you pay full price. and $7.49 when I get 25% off. Ridiculous. I don't like the new format of a lot of the paperback either, taller and thinner. The books look wierd on my bookcases.

Got a free Sunday newspaper at the grocery store when I was leaving. Saved 17%. Got two 15 ct boxes of Pizza Rolls for .10 cents each.

Went to Barnes and Noble and spent $18.55 used my free GCs. Got a Kiplinger's magazine How to save on Everything. And a new magazine called Arthur Frommer's Smart Shopping. This is a really good magazine, costs 2.99 and has a ton of money saving ideas and a lot of good websites to go to to find bargains. Well worth the money. Also picked up a book called Mom's guide to saving and making money on the Internet. Looked interesting. I had a 15% off coupon that I printed out from the Internet.

Went to Big Lots and spent $1.25 on a box of salt and 2 large bottles of spices.

Next met my parents at Red Lobsters. Had a coupon for $3 off 2 meals. My meal was only $6 including tax and tip. Popcorn shrimp, I love that stuff.

Last stop was Long's. Got a free Lady Speed Stick 24/7 deodorant. I had a $5 off $25 purchase coupon from the Entertainment book. They had chopped walnuts on sale at 1 lb for $3. A very good deal. I had just bought some at the grocery store for $6.99 a pound, so I stocked up and bought two more pounds at $6 total. I like to put a handfull of them on my oatmeal in the morning. I spent $22.74.

Free Stuff I got this week.

A Sunday Newspaper
A sample of Purpose Moisturizer
Lady Speed Stick 24/7 deodorant
Free Showtime movies

Finished reading the library book Crazy Hot by Tara Janzen. Romance/mystery. Pretty good.
