the worst part about doing a lot of shopping

September 7th, 2008 at 10:42 am

is dealing with the stuff when you get home. I have several gifts occassions in September. Youngest nieces b-day, best friends daughter's b-day and parent's anniversary.

Last Wednesday I took both nieces to see the Mummy 3. 20.25 for tickets. 14.50 for junk and 10 for food court dinner. We went shopping for youndest nieces b-day. The mall had a promotion for every $100 you put on your Discover card you get a $10 Discover gift card. I spent $115 on her presents, dinner and a book for a xmas present. I had a 20% coupon and a $5 off coupon on the books.

Thursday my mom and I went to the mall. She doesn't have a Discover card so she put her purchases on my card and paid me the cash later. She spent $180 and I spent another $42 on books for me. I had another 20% off coupon plus I got a free book for buying 4 books. When we were done I went to customer service and got 3 $10 Gift cards. We had spent $337 and the lady wanted to know if I wanted to do more shopping to get another card. You could get up to 5 cards. I told her I wasn't going to spend another $60+ to get a $10 gift card. Every thing I bought I would have bought anyways. I gave one of the gift cards to mom, she should have got half of the second one put it's hard to cut a gift card in half and she told me to keep it. Thanks mom Smile

We went to Bed Bath and Beyond and I got a gift for their anniversary and a small gift for best friends daughter's b-day. Had a $10 off $30 purchase so gift for b-day was free.

Went to Hobby Lobby and got colored pencils with a 40% off coupon also for friends daughter's b-day. Cost $1.89

Friday I went to WalMart to get the rest of friend's daughter's present. Barbie stuff and do this week's price matching. I got two 4 pack of Scott TP for free after coupons and used another 6 $1 coupons on the Muir Glen organic tomatoes.

I just got all the presents wrapped and everything put away this morning.

There are some very good coupons in the paper this week. A good week to buy extra copies of the paper.
