Acme, Acme and more Acme! Trip One:
  • Glade Soy Candle $3.49, used free coupon (8/9 SS) = FREE
  • 5 Solo Cups $2.99 each, used five $0.75 coupons (6/21 SS) = $7.45 or $1.49 each
  • 2 loaves Acme white bread $0.99 each
  • Loaf of English muffin bread (couldn't resist!) $1.99
  • Dean Koontz's Frankenstein $7.49 - I cannot even tell you how excited I am about this! I've been waiting for this book to come out for years. I did a little happy dance when I saw it in the store. And to use my cats on it and not spend cash, even better! :)
  • Used $2 cat and three $5 cats, total was $3.46

Trip Two:

  • 20 Yoplait yogurts $0.50 each = $10 *Got back coupon for two free Yoplaits :)
  • 3 Solo Cups $2.99 each, used three $0.75 coupons (6/21 SS) = $4.47 or $1.49 each *Got back three $0.50 catalinas here. I wonder why I didn't get them in the other store? After these, total was $2.97 or $0.99 each
  • 2 Italian Village ravi-lo-lis $5.29 each (I know, I know, but the title of this post is "splurging" so you can't say you weren't warned)
  • 2 Pepperidge Farm garlic breads $2.99 each
  • Used $1 cat and six $5 cats, total was $0.50

I've still got $84.50 left in catalinas to spend!

This one's for the ladies - just watched "He's Just Not That Into You". Have you all seen this? Loved it!

I have been waiting for the book to come out as well. I will have to go and get it to complete my collection. Good job at Acme too!

I can't wait to start reading!

It was hilarious and I was so happy with the ending. Such a cute movie.
