Well, just about.
I am having a little sticker shock issue.
I went to CVS and got 2 cans of Progresso chicken soup, a Schick Hydro 5 razor, and some sponges for $2.28 out of pocket and $4 in ECBs to spend later
Then after lunch I went for groceries.
I went to Walgreens first, because they had Lysol toilet bowl cleaner on sale 2 for $2.99, and I had two coupons for $1 off of those, so I got them for 53 cents each after tax. No problems there.
I went to Walmart because that pleasant incident restored my faith in the franchise. And because they always accept my coupons for free items.
I had Jasper in the stroller and was pushing the cart (hadn't anticipated needing the cart) and since it's tax-free weekend, it was so ridiculously crowded in there. I picked up ink for the printer, and I was picking up 4 jars of stage 2 baby food and figured I would price check the baby cages. Jasper has been crawling all over the place and I need him caged. It turned out they had a Graco brand baby cage clearanced for $45, down from like $120. A quick call to Brian confirmed that I could not pass that up.
I loaded it under the cart with assistance from a kind bystander, and went on my merry way. And I saw on an endcap that Sweet Baby Ray's 40 oz barbecue sauces were down to $1, and I had a $1 off coupon. Yay! I went around and colleccted 3 flavors of Crystal Light, a box of 80 trash bags, a pound each of beef sausage and cheddar cheese, an 8 pack of Lance sandwich crackers, a dozen eggs, a 10 lb bag of potatoes, and a pint of blueberries.
For everything I bought minus the baby cage and the printer ink, I spent $23.46. That's a little better. $178.89 worth of stuff we needed came into this house today, and I spent $91.70. I saved $87.19.
And Jasper can sleep in the baby cage when the new baby gets here and kicks him out of his crib.
But I spent so much money...
