mom's bday - 71 years old

December 12th, 2010 at 01:36 pm

My sister, youngest niece and I met my parents at P. F. Chang's to celebrate mom's bday for lunch today. She turned 71. I'm not fond of asian food but tried the Moo Goo Gai Pan and it was pretty good. I really liked the steamed snow peas.

Prior to meeting everyone I went to Borders and got a book for 40% off and used my free Border's gift cards from Discover to pay. Next I stopped in at Albertson's which is about a half mile from the restaurant. I got 2 Marcal kleenex boxes and 1 paper towel for .25/each and a jar of Kraft Sandwich shop mayonaise for .99. I got the garlic and herb kind. If I don't like it I will pass it on to Dad. He eats everything Smile

Last stop Walgreens on the way home from the restaurant. I got 2 Bic 4 pack disposable razors. BOGO at 3.99. I used 2 $2 coupons so only paid taxes. Will donate to the food pantry. I also got 2 Milky Way Simply Caramel candy bars for 1.59. I had a coupon for .50 cents and there was an in-ad coupon that took another .81 cents of. Final price w/taxes = .30/2

I was watching Downsized last night and I really enjoyed the episode where the kids competed on making dinner. I thought that was a really good learning experience on shopping, using coupons, planning a meal and cooking the meal.

I got the following things free this week:

6 Bumblebee tuna pouches
2 Krusteaz cookie mixes
$10 Border's gift card
$10 Amazon gift card
18 Snickers santas
6 Butterfinger Snackerz
1 250 ct bottles of Magnesium supplements
Folgers coffee sample
Lawry's chicken seasoning sample
1 Aleve tablet sample
3 Pictureka card games
$10 pharmacy reward

I finished reading my book Traitor's Moom by Lynn Flewelling. Sci/Fi - pretty good.

    I really enjoyed this weeks episode of downsized too. Wasn't so fond of the family fitness business idea, but I LOVED the cooking challenge. The kids are old enough to cook & if they don't like the food she makes, they could help out.

    You are really good at getting those freebies!

    Happy Birthday to your Mom - that really rocks.

    I noticed the razor freebie too. I only have one of the $2 coupons though, so it'll be $2 tax for two of them. Still a good deal. Big Grin

    You always do well with your shopping. I hope that your Mom enjoyed her birthday. P.F. Changs is one of my husband's favorite restaurants. They have their own brand of wine and we were really impressed with their Sauvignon Blanc. It had a nice little bite to it. Glad that you were able to get your shopping done.

    At Walgreens yesterday, I also picked up the ActivOn for arthritis. It was 7.99 and received a rewards for $8 on future purchase. My husband has arthritis and I wanted to try it on him.

    What channel does downsize come on. Sounds cute.

    Aleta - Downsized in on the We channel on Saturday nights. They've had a half dozen shows that usually repeat on Saturday's leading up the newest one about 8:00 Mountain Time
