A Good Day Overall

Phew. Rachel convinced me that buying band aids was a snap, so off I went!


The first Wag's denied me, so I left everything there and went to one two blocks away ;)
Band-aids: $1.99 with in-ad q, then $2 off each from Activity Book = earn $.03
Trident Layers: 2/$2, earn $1 RR, $.75/1 IP x2 = $.50 cash, earn $1 RR
Total: $.63 cash, left with $1 RR
(gotta love wags. Gum scans at $1.29 and $.71. so silly!)

Chili Master: $3.99 BOGO, $2/1 from AllYOU x3, $1/1 from PC book
Shopper's Value Saltines: $1.49, but FREE WYB 2 Chili = $.98 for 4 chili and 2 crackers
More meat, of course! I found one lone burger for $1.59, stew meat for $2.34, and finally some tenders for $2.74 and $3.03. Not the best on chicken, but average is good, and now I have some beef!
$7.95 cash for all that.
Plus, even though all stores have signs saying you won't earn gas rewards anymore, and spend them before they disappear; however I'm up to $.05 off again...haha. glitch!

Safeway shoppers are reporting Newman's Own Thin Crust for $2.49 "reduced for quick sale." Well, my local store had just the Supreme and Roasted Chicken & Garlic for $2.69, so I snagged one of each.
-$1 Shortcuts, $1/1 IP x2 = 2/$2.38! YUM that's tonight's dinner.
Ensure FREE after q that expired today. Used GC from script, s obasically FREE.

Overall a good day...I would have gotten some amazing things at Target, but oh well, Dominick's pharmicist like left the building or something, so I couldn't transfer my script and I didn't buy anything...
