Saturday's Rite-Aid Bounty or Booty-You Decide

Though I am bummed that I had only 3 days to do my "Rite-Aid Thang" this week, and because of the new "can't use the +Ups the same day you get them" rule I had more out of pocket actual spending, I am also soooo glad too that the shopping week is over!

I am spent....literally and figuratively!lol

I noticed last night that R-A had the boxes of full sized candy bars on sale this week for $9.99 AND they gave a $1 +Up Reward, limit of 4.
We have a rep in the neighborhood of giving out awesome Halloween treats, which usually means full sized candy bars.  I'll just say we are very popular on Oct. 31st here. ;-)
Since I wanted to max out on the Gatorade Deal and I lacked enough +Ups to do it without forking out more cash AND I had to buy these candy bars anyway and this is the best price around here for them, I went ahead and hiked up to Rite-Aid last night AGAIN and bought 4 boxes.  While I don't count these in my food budget(the money comes out of the holiday/special occasion budget)I won't count their cost under my monthly food spending.
But.....hehehe....I will take the $4 in +Ups and add it to my stash to spend on food/toiletries this month.
If anyone out there has a problem with this, I suggest you take it up with the Board of Directors here at "Don't Read This; It's Boring!".

And I have no photo of the candy since it got hidden away immediately to keep certain teenagers from devouring it all.
Ok....who am I kidding!  I had to hide it from myself as well..... 8-P

So with that said, I started this morning with $30(the $26 I had + the $4 from the Halloween candy) in +Ups just burning a HOLE in my pocket. ;-)

Not a lot that I want/need.
Maybe some "Bliss" chocolate, a Sammy Foam raincheck and some Incense to roll about $5 of the +Ups....that way I only have to roll/spend $13 of the $18 I have the following week.

What's looking like a deal to you at Rite-Aid next week?

  1. Well, poo, we don't have any Rite-Aids around these parts. You sure make the most of the available deals my friend!
