My baby

This is Charlie, my baby. Since my girls are bigger and all 3 in school I feel like he is my baby. Everyday I come home from work at lunch and he is waiting for me at the top of the stairs. Happily wagging his tail. Just really glad to see me.

As you might notice Charlie is very ready to go to the groomers. But since it is still cold out we will wait a little while longer. I have never had a long haired dog. I worried about his long hair when he was given to us but it has not been a problem. He is good to let us trim around his face and where ever else might need it :). All in all he is a great little pet and I am so happy we decided to take him in.

Why I Love CVS

Before I became a coupon freak (as I feel some would like to call me) I never shopped CVS. I felt they were just to expensive. But now I have figured out the system with the help of some wonderful bloggers. Just look what I got today for $4.20 oop, this includes tax. But my real excitement today is my receipt.

$1.99 ECB from aspirin (we can't use but great for charity).

$4.00 ECB from razor.

$2.00 ECB from Suave.

But what I think is the best part.... $4 off of $20 coupon, $2 off any cosmetics, $3 off any 2 shampoo, conditioner, hair styling product. Since these can all be stacked with manufactures coupons I am planning some great deals.

Walgreens Deal

This is what all I got at Walgreen's this week. Sorry the picture is not better. I got 2 Colgate toothpastes, 2 Colgate toothbrushes, Shout laundry spray, Windex Wipes, Scrubbing Bubbles action scrubber, and Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel. My total before coupons and sales.... $29.87 my total after coupons and sales.... $10.75. Plus $2 in RR and $4 in rebates I still get to use. And since I got to use my gift card for transferring a prescription I was out nothing. :) I love a good deal.

Kroger Deal

Last weeks Kroger deal. Two weeks ago when Kroger had the buy 10 get $3 off I had figured I was getting the deal twice so $6 off. Must have not added correctly because only $3 came off. So this week I made sure to make those purchases separately... this is what I got:
2 Ragu Spaghetti Sauces
8 Gatorades
4 Boxes of fruit snacks
6 Boxes of Pizza Rolls.
I got all this for $11.95. I saved 73% on this transaction.

Now this is not all I got at Kroger, with a family of 5 I need alot more than this, but this was my best deal. I have learned that having separate orders can motivate you due to extreme savings.

My other order this week was really good too even though I was only able to get one free pack of toilet paper. Other total $59.38 savings on this order 45%.

Walmart Deal

This is what I got at Wal-mart Friday. I only spent $10.09. My pre-tax subtotal before coupons and sales was $24.07. The smokie links were on sale for $2.00 per pack so they started off as a pretty good deal. Notice I got some free soap and free hosiery. I am so happy to finally be understanding the coupon system.
