Shopping Trip - 3/8/09

This week was awesome! I was especially excited about the toilet paper deal that I got. I got Scott 1000 count toilet paper for .25 a roll. That is insanely cheap! These deals are a combination of CVS and Walgreens. I am heading to Kroger tomorrow to shop so I hope to have some good deals for then too. Their ad was good. The question is just whether they will have the items in stock or not.

Here is the breakdown of what I paid for everything. It ended up right at $24.00. I saved around $100 total.

Scott 1000 Toilet Paper - $.25/roll
Kleenex Tissues - $.83/box
Arm & Hammer Detergent - $2.50/ea
Herbal Essence - $.38/ea
Secret Flawless - $.99
Vasaline Therapy Lotion - $.44/ea
Palmolive Soap - $.49/ea
Colgate Total Advanced - $.25
Crest ProHealth - Free
Colgate Total - $.62/ea (After I did the calc when I got home I wouldn't have bought this. I don't like paying more than $.25 for toothpaste)

Till next time...

Snow Day

On Monday we got clobbered by a snow storm. It was the most snow that we have had since 2000 and it was awesome! Not only was it beautiful...we got a free day from work out of it. This snow was the first snow at my new house which was totally exciting. The snow came overnight and when I woke up my room was bright because of the white of the snow outside. I love that it lights up the house like that. I got 11 inches at my house which is insane!!

I pretty much went right outside and shoveled my sidewalk because I was so excited to have the first snow at my house. (Yes, I know that I am a dork) Later in the morning I shoveled my driveway. Now that was a chore...

Maddie and Savannah came over later in the day and we went sledding down my hill. I don't have a real sled so we made a fake one out of a Rubbermaid Container lid down in an IKEA reusable bag. It worked awesome because we were able to hold onto the handle and pull them down the hill.

Needless to say, I didn't get ANYTHING productive done on Monday other than shoveling my driveway and playing with the girls. It was nice to have a throw away day like that. Now if we could only have more snows like that in the future.
