Yesterday mom and I went in town to shop. I went to Kmart to get some new jeans. I've been buying the same style jeans there for over 10 years. I needed a new pair in the size I wear now, which is a size 18. Mom was not happy to learn I'm fitting in a size 18 now. Not because she's unhappy about my wearing that size, but because that's the size she wears. I weigh quite a bit more than she does, but I carry my weight in my stomach and she puts hers on her butt.

I also wanted to get a pair of size 16 and 14 pants as incentives. I like to try the next size down on every few weeks to see if I'm making progress. They didn't have those sizes in the women's section so I had to shop in the normal people section - woohoo! It may be big normal, but it's normal or will be as soon as I can fit into the 16's. Smile

I used the Sear's gift card I bought at Safeway a few months ago that gave me $10 off my groceries when I bought a $50 gift card. I was over by .27

Also went to Party City. I had a coupon for $10/$50 which I gave to my mom. She said she didn't think she could spend that much. $100 later... Anyways she saved $10 with the coupon.

We went to Bed, Bath and Beyond where I got a new silicone oven liner. Mine wore out after 5 or 6 years. It was $10 and I used a 20% off coupon and paid with a 8% discounted gift card.

We had lunch at Ruby Tuesday's and I had a coupon for a free salad bar with purchase of the entre, so I saved $2.99 on that. Spent $11.27 also paid with a 10% discounted gift card.

I decided to go ahead and get the AARP membership. It's $16/year. I keep borrowing mom's card to get deals at Walgreens so I figure it will at least pay for itself.

I transferred a prescription to King Soopers and got another $1 off gas reward. I gave it to my dad since I don't need gas this month.

I finished reading the library book Legacies by L.E. Modesitt Jr. Sci/Fi - very good.
