My youngest niece came over today to sweep my garage and porch. I paid her $25 for this half hour chore. She did a really good job, but it was basically just a way to give her money for her trip to Hondurus.

We went to King Soopers to rent Avatar from the Redbox there. I had a promo code to get a free rental. While there I also got the following

3.00 - 3 3 bar packs of Ivory soap
5.00 - 4 Reach toothbrushes
.63 - taxes
----
8.63
-3.00 - 3 $1 q's Ivory soap
-2.00 - 2 $1 q's Reach Toothbrush
-2.22 - 1 BOGO Reach
-2.22 - 1 BOGO Reach
-----
-.81 - I didn't know the BOGO price would be so much or I would have gotten some bananas as a filler. Instead the cashier just zeroed out the order. But I got a $4 OYNO coupon. No money spent - $4 made. I was glad my niece was with me to see the transaction. I've tried to explain to them how I get all this free stuff and sometimes make money, but their Dad basically acts like I don't know what I'm talking about. So seeing is believing. I'll have to try to go back and do 1 or 2 more transactions on the Reach. I have a few more coupons.

We went to Taco Bell for lunch. Her favorite. $6.91 for the two of us - can't get much cheaper than that. The movie was really good, if long, we both liked it.

I also went to Walgreens and still no Neutrogena. My favorite cashier told me she had a customer who came in and bought 4 cases of the lip balm. Paying about $3.75 and getting $10 OYNO coupons each time. That's good for her, but there are other people in the world. I try not to get too greedy and wipe out all the merchandise when I do deals. I did find out the Schick razor deal I did on Sunday was even better than I originally thought since there is a Try Me free rebate out for it. So I will make $8+ on the razor.

Also went back to Walmart and got 2 more of the Hillshire farm lunchmeat. I had my coupons this time so got 2 tubs for $1.54 or .77 each.

I finished reading the library book The Marriage Trap by Elizabeth Thornton. Romance - good

    I was going to say "Wow, that is a great hourly rate!" but then I saw it was for a mission trip - so well worth the cost. My mom paid my daughter $10/her for weeding!

    I've been trying to do the Neutrogena deal and it has been a no go here to. Frustrating. I'll keep the coupons with me just in case but there are other deals to be done so its on the back burner for now.

    Have you bought a Schick razor since Monday? The rebate started Monday the 14th. Figures - I stocked up on Schick razors on Sunday! Hoping my next set of Schick qs arrive today so I can do another Wags run.

    dmontngrey - I bought mine on Sunday. Didn't even look at the dates. I already mailed it in too. Ah well, if I get it great, if not I still made money. Thanks for pointing it out.

    One more thing in case you guys didn't hear: the Neutrogena bars stopped giving the 10.00 RR as of today! Bummer. No word yet on the lip balm that I know of.

    My Schick qs arrived today. Gotta get cracking - waiting for DH to get home!
