Publix and CVS
I dropped by Publix before baseball last night to get things before the sale ended. I got 8 boxes of cereal, 4 Barillo spaghetti pastas, and 6 Ragus. My total after coupons was $$21.25. I got 3 of the Essesence of Beauty toe dividers for $2.98 and made $5 ECB, I got one toe dividers and two makeup applicators for $4.98 and made $5 ECBs, I also got the Excedrine free after a coupon and made $1 ECB and I got 4 baby shampoos free after coupons. We are having a neighborhood garage sale in a few weeks and I am going to make a basket of all the free stuff that I don't want or need and sell it for $1.00. Hopefully, some of it will sell and I can use the money to BUY MORE- what else?
WATCH YOUR RECEIPTS! I don't know if it was because I went on Tuesday evening and they were changing the registers for the sales to start the next day or what but the Ragu rang up $2.89 each instead of 2 for $1.99. I bought 6 so I was charged $11.34 too much. I have to make a special trip to get this straightened out. I knew the total was not right from the beginning. I was just in a hurry to get to the baseball game and didn't stop right there and check it. I should have. I guess I can get this weeks sales when I go to get my money.
Monthly grocery total is now at $347.78. This sure is going up really fast. I need meat, I have a lot of chicken breasts, but I am out of hamburger meat.
