What Was I Thinking?

Do you ever go about your day (or in this case, week), happily plodding along and then suddenly realize, "Hey! Wait a minute, why did I do that?" Well, that's me today. I really wanted to stock up on the Scotch bubble mailers that are on sale for three for $1 this week. So why was I only buying two at a time all week? The limit is 6! I haven't seen them at this price in months and months, and they don't go bad, so there's no reason for me to not buy lots of them. Duh!

Hmm, looking at the pic now, I think I may have gone just a smidge overboard. I know you're all totally shocked, afterall I know you'd never expect to see anything like this on my blog. Certainly not. :)


Ran into CVS real quick to exchange the Sobe Life Waters. The Assistant Manager helped me and when I showed her the expiration dates, she said "eww, yuck" and helped me pick out new bottles.

Walgreens
  • Scunci Hair Ties (18 ct.) $2, got back $2 RR = FREE
  • 6 Scotch bubble mailers three for $1 = $2
  • Used $3 RR, total was $1.28

Second store

  • Edge Edge Energy Shaving Gel $2.99, got back $3 RR = FREE
  • 6 Scotch bubble mailers three for $1 = $2
  • Used $2 RR, total was $3.34

Later on I bought:

  • Scunci Hair Ties (18 ct.) $2, got back $2 RR = FREE
  • 9 Scotch bubble mailers three for $1 = $3
  • Used $3 RR, total was $2.35

Then I went to a different Walgreens with my sister and they had mini-Degrees! I had my sister buy:

  • 6 Degree deodorants travel size $0.99 each, got back $6 RR for buying 6 Unilever items = FREE
  • 6 Scotch bubble mailers three for $1 = $2
  • Total was $8.50 - should have done something different here, this is pretty high but we were in a rush

Then I bought:

  • 6 Degree deodorants travel size $0.99 each, used five $0.75 coupons (3/1 RP) and got back $6 RR for buying 6 Unilever items = $3.81 profit
  • Edge Edge Energy Shaving Gel $2.99, got back $3 RR = FREE
  • 6 Scotch bubble mailers three for $1 = $2
  • Total was $5.95

Today's count: Skintimate - 4, Edge - 22, Chapstick - 18

LMAO! No, I didn't even notice where we were until I saw the sign. I said "hmmm..." and DH asked what was up.
"One of my hounding buddies lives up there."
"Oh gosh...another buddy?! We're not stopping..."
