Hubs and I went out Saturday....he had Christmas shopping to do(he drives me nuts waiting until the last minute!) and I had a Fashion Bug gift card to use up since the stores are going out of business. I wanted to get into that store before everything good got bought up. I found a couple of things and used up my gift card and waited in the car for Hubs to emerge from Walmart. No way I was setting foot in Walmart during the weekend before Christmas! lol
Then we hit the bread store to stock up on bread products since I haven't been back since Nov. 24th. I may have gone overboard with the Holidays here, buying things like doughnuts, cakes, Stollen too.....I LOVE Entenmann's Stollen!
$22 later and 7 loaves of bread, 3 packages of rolls, 2 Stollen, 2 packages doughnuts, 1 cheesecake, 1 pecan danish ring and 2 cheese buns, we left the store.
This should get us through the rest of December AND well into January.
I had to pick up 2 prescriptions at Rite-Aid too, so while I was in the store, I "bought" a couple of other things......
3 x Pretty Woman Magnetix Nail Polish clearanced colors $1.99=$5.97
1 x Cepacol drops on sale=$3.99
1 x Russel Stover large box of Candy on sale=$8.99
1 x Cella cherry w/Gold discount=$.26
1 x $1/1 Cepacol IPQ=$1.00
1 x $3/1 Rite-Aid Cepacol FacebookQ=$3.00
I used $15 in +Up Rewards and put the .27¢ on my gift card.
I received back $5 in +Up Rewards($2 Cepacol, $3 Russell Stover big box of candy).
I can submit for SCRebate #3--$6 wyb 3 Pretty Woman Magnetix nail polish (Limit 2 rebates).
I "spent" $15 in +Ups and got back $5 in +Ups and $6 in +Ups converted to cash, meaning this transaction "cost" me $4.
The Cepacol was a $2.01 moneymaker, the Magnetix polish was a .03¢ moneymaker and the RS Candy box cost me $5.99 after sale/+Ups.

The Oldest son arrived home safely late afternoon on Saturday.
And my Holiday miracle--an item I ordered in November from overseas arrived BEFORE Christmas! I had given up hope on it getting here in time for present unwrapping time.
It's wrapped up and under the tree.
Now I am one contented mama.
And we got a light dusting of snow which made the snow-crazed beagle happy.....
And I still don't know what I'm cooking for Christmas dinner......sigh.....
