Ran several errands this morning. First stop was Walgreens where I got 6 more Scotch bubble mailers for .39/each and a tube of Colgate Pro-Sensitive toothpaste that I will donate to the food pantry. The tooth paste was on sale for 4.99. I had a $1.50 coupon and got back a $4 RR. So I made a few cents on it after taxes.

Next stop was Safeway. I got 3 trial size boxes of Tide for free. 2 Starkist tuna pouches for .50/each. 2 6.4 oz tubes of Colgate toothpaste for free and a lb of Primo Taglio deli turkey for $5.99. I spent $7.23. The toothpaste goes to the food pantry.

At the library 18 holds came in. I had to bring in a bag to carry them all. Most weeks I get 3 - 5 holds then all the sudden they all show up at once. It's a good thing I can renew most of them twice. I already have several checked out so I'm behind on reading the library books.

Next up was King Soopers. I spent $10.56 after using $55.47 in coupons. $2.77 of the $10.56 was for items to donate to the food pantry. I had a coupon for $10/$50 at Safeway, but King Soopers takes those. I also used the 2 $10 gift cards I got from buying cereal last month, so that was $30 of the $55 in coupons I used.

I got 5 cans of Spaghettios for .29/each, 2 bottles Lawry's marinade for free, 3 free 2ct packages GUM Crayola toothbrushes and a can of Del Monte tomatoes for .49 to donate to the food pantry.

I got a package of 8 ct Jif to Go for my oldest niece using a free item coupon and I got 3 free 4ct packages of Minute Maid frozen Cherry limeades to give to my youngest niece.

For myself I got a bunch of radishes, 2 red onions, 3 tomatoes, a bunch of spinach, 2 bottles of Nature's Bounty CoQ10 (BOGO + $6 coupons + 50% more/per bottle + $5 back when you spend $30), 2 doz Land O Lakes eggs, and 2 5 ct boxes Atkins bars.

On the way out of King Soopers I got a free movie from the Redbox machine using a promo code.

I finished reading my book Sizzle by Julie Garwood. Romance - very good.
