Shopping with Shadow

What a lot of shopping I did this morning!  Da boyfriend's friend was supposed to come over and help him yank out our wood stove, so Shadow and I went shopping to get her out of the house and out of the way.  Unfortunately, he couldn't make it, so we're still stuck with this thing for a while longer.
Its looking better though now that DBF took off the heat shield.  The brick behind it looks to be in really good shape, which is a relief. The plan is to take the wood stove out to reveal the regular fireplace.  This will free up some space in the living room and we think it will look a lot better.  Once the stove is gone, we're going to rip off the wood paneling above it.  Unfortunately, the wall behind it is pretty beat up, so we're going to put up some new paneling instead and DBF is going to build a purty mantel.  

Back to the shopping -

Price Chopper

  • 2 Red Baron Pizzas $6.99 *Circular advertises a double pack for this price but the store didn't have any.  They let me substitute the double pack for two individual pies.
  • Milk $1.09
  • 2 ICBINB Tubs $2.50 - should have used the coupons in today's circular!  I saw these in the aisle and remembered that we were almost out
  • 5 Cracker Barrel cheeses $2 each

  • Total was $51.32
I'll use the pizza and chips towards a $25 Smirnoff NBPR rebate on $25.01 of deli platters, pizza, wings, snacks, cups, plates and utensils (DGUSA0295).  
At Target, I found these chair cushions on clearance for about $7 each.  Gigi has barely moved from them all day!  I also picked up a really cute screen for the fireplace for around $35.

I hope you share the after pic of the fireplace once DBF beautifies it. I love the display of coupon inserts on the Lazy Susan. LOL
