Indulgent Weekend

I got my hair done on Saturday at a new salon. I'd been going to the same hairdresser for a while now, and after a recent bad haircut, I decided it was time for a change. The new salon is great and pretty affordable. I got a haircut (to fix the previous cut), a color tint (I'm a brunette again!) and some minor highlights. I hadn't planned on getting new highlights, but what can I say, they look good. :) Maybe when they start to grow out I'll do one of those at-home color kits. I was at the salon for...(wait for it)...four and a half hours! I was getting so stir-crazy that I felt like I was really about to go nuts! The hairdresser I had was very nice, but very meticulous. After a while, I started thinking to myself, "its good enough, just let me get out of here already! I don't really need highlights on both sides." hehe

Then on Saturday night, DBF and I did a little shopping and had a super yummy dinner at California Pizza Kitchen. I even splurged on a Sangria Margarita and it was so worth every over-priced penny. :) We used the $25 gift card I got at S&S.

BJ's - my mom received a $20 home mailer BJ's coupon for Lost Season 4 when you buy any other season. I really wanted season 4, and my sister's been wanting season 2, so this worked for both of us. This is my absolute favorite tv show and I can't wait for it to come back on in a couple weeks. I used DBF's membership card on these.
  • Lost Season Two $39.99
  • Lost Season Four $38.99
  • Used $20 coupon, total was $64.50 - (sis will pay me back for half of that)

Target - I bought this movie previously for my sister's Christmas present. This one is just for me. My mom bought me the Indiana Jones movie for Christmas, but forgot, and then bought me a second copy (talk about CRS! hehe). So she gave me the receipt to take that back and I used that refund money to buy this movie instead. She even wrapped both copies up so I'd get a laugh on Christmas. :)

CVS - My Card

  • 2 Flex-a-min Glucosamine bottles $19.99 each, BOGO sale, used two $5 coupons (6/29, 9/7, 10/12 or 11/9 RP) and got back $3 ECB (Limit 1) = $6.99 ($2.99 for both when you take into account the $4 off $20 coupon)
  • 4 papers $1.50 each = $6
  • Used $4 off $20 coupon, $5.99 ECB, $6 ECB, total was zero!

Wow! You scored some great deals!

It would have killed me to sit in a hair salon for 4 and 1/2 hours. YIKES! Bet the new do looks great though.

It just about killed me too! I'm not 100% happy with the color, but I don't have any desire to go back any time soon. lol

Great buys! Hey you mentioned on my blog a $1.50 mir on electrasol. Would you share the details and give a heads up on the grocery forum? Is this a rite aid only rebate?

Lisa,

Hmm, the only Electrasol rebate I remember was a Rite Aid rebate from a month or two ago. Maybe they'll have another one in January and we can use those awesome $2.50 coupons coming out.
