free groceries

October 11th, 2010 at 05:21 pm

I met with my kidney surgery dr today in town. My surgery is set up for Nov 10. My poor mom, it seems like all my dr things are really messing with her schedule. She had to give up several things she wanted to do now to go with me or be there when I was in the hospital. For the dr visits, I don't care if she goes or not, it makes her feel better so I let her come into the appts with me. I feel kind of funny though - an almost 50 year old woman who has her mom with her in the dr's office Smile. Anyways, mom was supposed to have company on the 9th and 10th. I told her it was ok with me if she doesn't make it to the hospital until late on the 10th, but she wants to be there. I guess I'll just leave it up to her to decide what her priorities are after letting her know I won't be offended if she's not there.

I got a prescription filled at King Soopers today. It cost .80 for the month and I had a coupon to get $25 in free groceries if I got my prescription filled at King Soopers. So lots of free groceries coming up. I have one more of those coupons to use up before the end of the month.

Since I was in town again stopped at Borders and got 2 books for my neice and a $10 gift card for the daughter of a friend of mine for xmas. I used a 40% of coupon plus 5 Border's bucks. A lot of my xmas this year is going to be gift cards. My neice wants Target gift cards since she works there and is always buying stuff. She gets 10% off as an employee. Since I get 5% off on grocery stores with one of my credit cards I will buy them from King Soopers in December and save $5 and get double gas points or .20 off per gallon.

I also went to Alberstons again and got 2 bags of No Yolks noodles for .59 each. 3 free Bliss candy bars. 4 free Mentos gums. 2 Mars simply caramel bars - BOGO. The gum goes to neices.

I sent a list of discounted gift cards to my dad last night to see if he wanted any of them. I went to Card Pool and purchased Chili's and Elephant Bar gift cards at 11% discount for him. I went to Plastic Jungle and got JC Penny cards at 14% off for him and I got a Staples gift card at 8% off for me. This is just like buying money at a discount plus I save another 1% putting them on my credit card.

I read another book in my sci/fi series - Local Custom by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller - excellent.

    I agree. Let your mom decide what she needs to do. You did let her off the hook, so she needs to handle it from there.

    Hey - I'm 31 and my mom went with me when I got my news that I might have thyroid cancer (turned out I didn't) and is insisting on going to appointments with me now as they try to figure out whats wrong with me this time. Its something Moms feel they have to do no matter what the age Smile
