I used a gift card that I earned through MyPoints to pay for this purchase, otherwise my out of pocket expense would have been $11.47. I was excited to get diapers for just $3.66/pack. And the Aveeno lotion was just $0.04 each after coupons and sales. I love using it on my legs. In my opinion it doesn’t work that well as a hand lotion but it totally rocks at keeping legs hydrated in the winter when they want to get all dried out.

Yay for free “healthy” cereal, money making vitamins and free aspirin. I’m not a shredded wheat fan but I think my hubby will eat it. If not, I’ll happily donate it to our local food bank. The aspirin I always pass onto my parents, both of whom are supposed to take it daily.

Also purchased Bic White Out that I forgot to picture.
Once again I price matched at Walmart and again it was very simple to do. I also picked up my usual organic carrots for cheap thanks to the weekly coupon that I can get from Earthbound Farms website. The Bic deal was awesome because I had just discovered that my Wite Out was dried up and then realized that yay, I could get it for free this week! And the water? I need distilled water for my iron. Kind of hate paying for water but hey, what is one to do?

- Two $0.75/1 Cracker Barrel printable coupons
- Four $0.75 Earth Bound Farms printable coupons (from their website)
I used grocery cash to pay for this purchase of $3.14.
I about had a fit when I saw that eggs were $1.75/dozen. I don’t think I’ve ever paid so much for eggs in my entire life! But we were almost totally out so I went ahead and got them. But I will definitely be making it a point to again get eggs from the local farm I often buy them from!
- Powdered Sugar $1.39
- Eggs $1.75
This was money that we will use to buy milk from a local dairy. We pay $2.50 for a gallon of farm fresh milk.
The Charmin wipes were sent to me from Vocalpoint. (You can sign up to try future products too.) I have to admit that I was actually more impressed with them than I expected to be. I figured they would cause problems when flushing and just not be that helpful but I was wrong. We’ve had no issues flushing them and they’ve been great to use on our 4 yr. old when we want to make sure he is totally clean. In fact, I was so impressed with them that I just might end up buying some if I can find that at a good price. It’s perfect for a little one who is learning to wipe themselves.Add a Comment
