I got several more free items today as well as .90/gal savings on gas. I had .90 cents off Safeway gas from last month. They tripled my gas points. So I spent $300 in groceries and gift cards and got 9 gas points. I spent $2.86/gal and filled up my tank and 2 5 gallon cans for just over $60.

I pruned my coupon organizer and saw I had 2 more Colgate toothpaste coupons that will expire this month so went to King Soopers and got 2 more free to donate.

At Walgreens I got 3 Milky Way bunnies for free with coupon and gave them to my mom.

At Walgreens I also did several deals that have multiple layers. Kelloggs frequently has overlapping deals. Right now they have a rebate buy 10 boxes of cereal and get a $10 gas card back.

Walgreens has Rice Krispies on sale buy 2/$5 get $2 RR back.

I had coupons for $1/2 boxes of cereal and get a free large bag of M&Ms when you buy 2 Rice Krispies. They had 2 kinds of M&Ms, one kind had 10% more in the bags, so of course I got those.

So I did 4 transactions and need to do one more later this week to qualify for the $10 gas card.

5.00 - 2 boxes Rice Krispies
3.59 - 1 bag with 10% extra M&Ms
----
8.59
-1.00 - $1/2 Rice Krispie coupon
-3.59 - M&M coupon
-----
4.00 paid
-2.00 - RR to use on my next order
-2.00 - gas card rebate
-----
FREE eventually

All the cereal will be donated. The M&Ms go to my nieces.

I finished reading my book Viel of Night by Linda Howard. Romance - very good.

    Thanks for asking. I'm fine, I just got burned out on blogging for awhile and most computer related things. I'm not spending as much time on the computer as I was. I expect I'll get interested again and be back. Smile
