Although we were not able to find the Cottonelle and the cotton swabs–(all sold out! I was really looking forward to stocking up! ) — We did find some unexpected deals!
First, at CVS our totals were $7.38. We earned $13.00 in extra bucks and saved a total of $76.29. When I walked in the house and the boys saw the load of peanut butter I bought, my oldest offered to buy them from me. Of course you know why, don’t you? They use peanut butter in their traps so it is a very important tool for them to have on hand….and more importantly, it is more important to me that they have their own jar of peanut butter for obvious reasons!
At Walgreens, we had some need shopping to do so we spent a total of $8.51 and saved $37.88. We used the one day only printable coupon for $5 off any order of $20 as well as a lot of other coupons. The biggest find of the day was all the free Dawn dish soap we found. They had it marked down to .50 cents a bottle and we used the $1 off 2 Dawn manufacturer coupons to come away with 8 bottles of free dish soap! (It was the Dawn Botanicals, Uplifting scent, yellow with big yellow .50 cent stickers on them. They were not in the clearance sections, they were on the shelf next to the other dish soap. I grabbed all that were left at the store I visited and I am sure they won’t last long if other stores have them!)
Also, for those who use real butter, they had the boxes of butter (4 sticks) on sale buy one, get one free for $3.99. If you needed butter that’s a good deal last time I checked on butter prices.
An amusing addition to the day was hearing an upbeat manager talk to several of his employees on jurisdictions vs. chores using the Dugger family as an example! He asked them if any of them had seen the shows about the family with 17 children and a 7,000 square foot house. He went on to share with them about the Duggers and how the parents train the children not to see their work as meaningless chores, but that they give the children ownership of areas of the house which they call jurisdictions. He went on to say how brilliant that was because the children don’t just see their work as a chore, they see it as a jurisdiction for which they are responsible.
Nice to hear as I was waiting in line
