$10 +Ups + Snow = Mission Accomplished

Well I thought I could get up, dressed and out to Rite-Aid to use those expiring today +Ups before the snow started.
And I was wrong. 8-P

So I sat here watching the live Weather Channel online map to see when the precipitation would let up a bit and rushed out when the dry spot hit my town.
Mission accomplished and I am home and we are in for the day.
It's nasty out there!

2 x Nivea Body Wash on sale=$8.00
1 x Nivea Renewal Body Scrub on sale-$4.00

I used 1 x $2/1 Nivea Renewal IPQ, making my Total after Qs $10.00
I paid with my expiring $10 +Up Reward.
I received a $10 +Up Reward for "Spending $20 on Nivea items" Deal.

Rolling that $10 +Ups out for another 2 weeks, waiting for a good deal on something I need.

These Body Washes are BLUEBERRY.
I guess I'll smell like a fruit salad or a pie after using these. lol

The daughter came home early from work and has been sick with a cold and some chest gunk.  I took that chicken stock I made last Sunday when I cooked the chicken for the Enchiladas and put some chicken, onions, celery, carrots and garlic and made a pot of Chicken Soup.  I'm waiting on her to see which she wants--noodles, potatoes or rice in it.
Or she might want to turn this into Chicken and Dumplings.

Stay warm and dry where you are today! 8-)



  1. Very nice deals. I love Nivea stuff.

  2. You are such a good mom! I want you to take care of me!
    And how awesome is it that Mother nature can't stop you from running a deal!

  3. I'm not sure I can get behind the blueberry scent, but my kids would love it! I also love Nivea - especially the lotions.

    And, agree with Sonya - what a good momma to be making soup. :-)

  4. I hope she feels better. But now I think that you should start listing the deals we can get every Sunday..ok Monday if you have to. When you tell me what to look for and videos to watch I do great but without you I am lost.

    You must lead us....please
