Oops, I Did It Again

  • Colgate Max Fresh or Max White toothpaste (or toothbrush) $2.99, used $1 coupon (4/26 SS) and get back $2 RR = FREE/$0.01 profit
  • Ramen noodles $0.29
  • Used $2 RR (from Right Guard last week), total was $0.38

Then I bought:

  • Roots of Nature Reconstructing Deep Treatment (different than the one pictured in the circular but it worked) $6, used $1 coupon and got back $6 RR = $1 profit
  • Ramen noodles $0.29
  • Used $5 RR (from Bayer), total was $0.50

Then I went to another store and splurged a little:

  • Colgate Max Fresh or Max White toothpaste (or toothbrush) $2.99, used $1 coupon (4/26 SS) and get back $2 RR = FREE/$0.01 profit
  • Sure for Men deodorant $1.99, used $1.50 coupon (5/3 SS) and will submit for Try Me Free rebate = $1.50 profit
  • Two 4x6 photo frames $5.99 each
  • 5x7 photo frame $6.99
  • Used two $5 RR's (Bayer) and $10 RR (Dr. Scholls), total was $3.13

After work I went to another store:

  • Gillette razors $26.99
  • Wicker basket $5
  • 2 Walgreens pocket pack of tissues $0.29 each
  • Used $2 RR and three $10 RR's, total was $2.81

I'm hoping these cartridges will hold DBF over until there's another Gillette sale. Since I used Dr. Scholls RR's to pay and those were a pure profit, I really don't mind spending the money on them.

Then I just had to go back to Michael's to poke around some more:
  • 2 packages Bead Heaven beads (clearanced) $1.99 each
  • Glass beads $2.99
  • Strand of beads $5.99, used 40% off coupon so I paid $3.59
  • 2 packages Mums stickers (clearanced) $2.99
  • Package of brads $2.99
  • Total was $20.90

I really have to stay out of this store for a while, its very dangerous for me!

Just because they're so cute, let's take a closer look at the mums. Its a little hard to tell, but they're 3-D. Love 'em!

Those mums are super cute. I didn't even take my son to do any of the mother's day freebies at Micheals for fear I'd buy something. I'm not allowing myself to buy anything else from there until I put a dent in my scrapping stash.

I don't scrapbook, but my sister does. I love to look at and admire her creations, but don't have much talent for it myself.

Aren't they? I haven't been to Michaels in ages so I let myself splurge a little. But I think I've done enough damage for a while.

I have a lot of fun doing it. Even if the pages don't turn out quite how I wanted, its still nice to look at the pictures and read the blurbs about what was going on that day.
