mom's bday

December 12th, 2011 at 05:21 pm

ytd = April 1 2011 - March 31, 2012
Coupon total ytd = 1,428.31
RX total = 388.06
Discounted Gift Cards = 211.05

My mom is 72 today. Dad took my sister, niece and me out to Outback yesterday to celebrate her bday. Today he wanted to go to lunch again to celebrate her bday after we walked at Walmart so we went to Village Inn. I spent $8.62 at Village Inn.

Village Inn had a deal buy $25 in gift cards and get a $5 bonus card to use between Jan and March next year. I got 2 $25 gift cards and paid using my CC that gives 5% back on restaraunts this quarter.

I gave mom the flower arrangement thingy she picked out when we went to the craft show last month. She had forgotten about it so it was as good as being surprised Smile

When I saw my niece yesterday I gave her 2 of the free Redbox codes I got at Thanksgiving to use.

I thought I was all thru with xmas, but my oldest niece sent me a request for a book today. Mom is going in town tomorrow so I asked her to pick it up for me. Books are one of my favorite things to give. The youngest one doesn't like to read anymore, so I don't give them to her now.

I made my last drop off of the year to the food pantry. During the year I gave 889 items, for a retail cost of $1,328 and my cost was $490.57. Not as good as last year, but still respectable. I also donated $200 in cash.

I also went to Walgreens today where I got two Olay moisturizers for $16 after coupons and 2 free Olay body washes. I will give the body washes to my nieces. I also got 4 free chocolate covered Peeps to give the girls. I spent over $50 before coupons so I got a $10 RR to use next week.

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