cowboys and aliens

August 17th, 2011 at 10:23 am

I took my youngest niece to see Cowboys and Aliens yesterday. We both liked it. I used my last free movie coupon from buying cereal last month. I spent $5 for her ticket.

We went to Red Robin for lunch. I got a mushroom burger and a side salad. Removed the bun from the burger. It was good.

We went bday shopping for her. Her bday is next month. She wanted this thing that plugs into her car and plays her iPod thru the FM radio @50, earplugs @15 and then we went to Wet Seal and got 4 pieces of clothes for @25. They were on clearance buy 1 get 1 for .01 cent. I have about $10 left and will get her a small gift card to Walgreens, so she can get fancy shampoo or skin stuff that she likes Smile

Also stopped in at Borders which has everything at 50%. Got 3 expensive books for $25.

On the way to pick her up, I stopped at Staples to get some school supplies to donate, plus pick up some things for me. Our local food pantry is basically the focal point for all of the charitable groups in my small town. They collect food, personal care, household, health care items, toys for xmas, clothes and school supplies all in one place. That's nice for me.

At Staples I had a coupon for 300 address labels for free - normally $9.99. I also got 2 packages of copy paper and 1 package of photo paper for .50/each after rebate. The photo paper will go to my mom.

Staples had 1 subject notebooks on sale for .01/each. I got 6 of those and a 7 ct package of mechanical pencils that were free after rebate. All of that will be donated.

I spent $25.92 and will get a $24.46 rebate check and mom will give me $.50 for the photo paper. I paid with an 8% discounted gift card and turned in 5 ink cartridges.

Walgreens has the Tru2Go blood glucose monitor free after rebate this week. $9.99. It comes with 10 free strips so I got one and tried it this morning. I really like it, needs a very small amount of blood to test, but it's 3 points higher than my Ultra mini monitor. The monitor itself is really small too, about the size of a silver dollar, so easy to carry around with you. 10 test strips is worth around $7. I'll get the rebate and I might get another monitor and have my mom send in a rebate form for it.

I got a $2 rebate check in the mail, but can't figure out what it was for. Usually it says on the check what you sent in for. Ah well, I'll cash it Smile

I finished reading my book One Fearful Yellow Eye by John D. MacDonald. Mystery - very good.

    Cowboys and Aliens was the first movie I've seen in a theatre in years and I loved it.
