A Little Bit of Shopping Last Week

My time in Southern Virginia is coming to a close.  I found some time last week to do a bit of shopping when I wasn't in Cat Hell.

While at the grocery store picking up some provisions I found these.....

These mixers were on clearance for $1.19 and make a gallon each so $3.78 w/tax for all.

Then I found these at Big Lots.........

Bags of Hickory and Mesquite wood chips for my smoker.  I was nearly out after last Summer so now at $2.50 a bag+.45 tax=$795 total(cheaper than the last lot I bought 2 years ago)we are all set for Summertime smoking.  8-)

And you know I had to go to Rite-Aid too, didn't you?

1 x Colgate toothpaste=$2.99
1 x Nivea lip balm 20% Wellness discount=$2.55

I used--
1 x $2/1 Colgate ManuQ=$2.00
1 x $2/1 Nivea product R-A FlyerQ=$2.00
Q Total....$4.00

$5.54-$4.00=$1.54+.18¢ tax=$1.72 paid with Plenti Points.
I earned $1 back in new PPs for buying the Colgate so I "spent down" my Plenti points by .72¢.

Go me....

I still have a $5 OYNO Catalina from Rite-Aid from before I came down here to expires soon so I'll probably go to R-A and buy some beer with it...because down here in the Commonwealth of VA the liquor laws are bit more lax so drugstores can sell beer/wine, not like home in the Draconian Commonwealth of PA.

What have you found a deal on lately at the stores?



  1. The Pat O'Brien's hurricane mix is a great deal. You can make it and sip a drink while sitting on your Paddy O' Furniture (yeah I know seriously bad pun but I couldn't resist) No deals here except Vaidalia onions for 35 cents a pound. But I honestly have not been looking.

  2. I bought those same wood chips at our Big Lots in Roanoke.

  3. Hey our Rite-aid sells wine and beer, and if you drive over the bridge to Washington you can buy hard liquor at the grocer and don't forget our lax pot laws. we know how to party here and relax.

  4. Did I miss something? Exactly where is "cat hell"? Penny S.

  5. Even doing the coupon thing on vacation, part of your blood, definitely! Cat Hell? Perhaps your MIL has tons of them?
