Bopping Around on Sunday

Hubs arose early on Sunday and took 2 large bags and a partial bag of dog food plus a sack of canned food to a local animal Shelter since our doggy is no longer here.

While he did that errand, I did 2 transactions at Rite-Aid.......

3 x Schick Razors on sale $9.99=$29.97

2  $2/1 Tresemme 'Poo ManuQ=$4.00
2 x Schick BOGO Up to $13.99 IPQ(coupons dotcom)=$19.98

I used $21 in +Up Rewards and paid .46¢ OOP.
I received back $16 in new +Up Rewards($10 wyb $25 Schick, $3 wyb2 Tresemme, $3 wyb2 Conair/Scunci).

And I have tracking of $11.98 toward another $10 Schick +Ups.

Then I bought this stuff.......

2 x Tresemme 'Poo on sale=$7.98
2 x Scunci Hair Elastics(with BF Raincheck Free)=$0.00*

*  Had Rain checks from Black Friday sales for both the Conair Brushes and Scunci Hair Elastics which made them free(because I couldn't get the +Ups they gave during that sale).  By using these Rain Checks during another Conair/Scunci Sale that gave +Ups I got a double reward.....free items AND +Up Rewards.

**  This Yardley Soap Rain Check was from BF sales 2013.  I needed another .50¢ in spending on this transaction so I could use more +Ups to pay so I bought 1 bar.

Then we went to the Restaurant Supply store together for groceries.  They had a Spend $50 Get $5 off coupon this weekend.

We picked up lunchmeat, a HUGE head of Cabbage, 3lbs. of Ricotta Cheese, 2 blocks of extra sharp Cheddar, 9.5lbs. of Ground Beef(80/20), 10 lbs. of Potatoes and Onions, 5 lbs. Red Potatoes.
After discount, $46.60 out the door.

Then it was off to Tuesday Morning so Hubs could pick up a stocking stuffer for me.  I saw this cup and thought of a few folks I know.......


Then I saw this and it's PERFECT for my Daughter.....it has that special blend of high class and redneck.....lol

And then I spotted the PERFECT gift for McVal. ........

Then we went next door to look at puppies.......

This poor little homely thing below, they called a "Mini Walrus".
WTF?  It's a cross breed of a basset hound and a sharpie I was informed.
Think this.....
 and this.....

I don't know, she sort of looks like a Lemon beagle and a French bulldog to me.
What do you think?

I am a sucker for a brachycephalic dog.....like this little pug......

They had a Brussells Griffon which is unusual to see in a pet store around here......

And a pair of sister Shina Ibu puppies that just wanted to sleep and not play.........

It's only been a week since Cherry left us and we are feeling the doggy urge already.  ;-)
the prices were ridiculous compared to what we pay for our Animal Shelter dogs.  $1200 for the mixed dogs?!?  No way.  A purebred with a pedigree maybe......

Then we went next door to P&R Grocery Outlet and picked up a few things for $14.99--2 bags of salad greens, 2 yogurts, a can of black eyed peas(New Year's Day is coming ya know!), a box of Saltines(so I can make a treat for Christmas), 2 large cans of tomato paste, a can of clam juice(for chowder making), 4 lbs. of Risotto rice for $1 lb., a box of cereal for $1.29 and something else I can't remember.

Then we browsed the beer distributor to see what specials or sales they had this month.
Hubs picked up a case of Old Forge(a local microbrewery)and I was tempted by a case of Sam Adams Gingerbread Stout but at $75+ I passed on that.  I'll wait until I can get to somewhere that sells single bottles or 6 packs(in PA you can only buy beer by the case, unless it's a grocery store cafĂ©, bar or restaurant with a liquor license that can sell you up to 2 6-packs).
At least Hubs got to mix and match his case with different varieties of 6-packs in his case of Old Forge beers.

Then it was home and we finished up the bulk of the Thanksgiving leftovers(a sweet potato is left now).

That was our 2nd day out last weekend. 
We don't usually run around so much on the weekend but that's just how it worked out for a change.




  1. I guess the puppy urge is better than the baby urge!
    And I think that you need to get that cup for dear daughter! How is she doing in her house?

    1. Baby urges do NOT happen here....ever! lolz

      Daughter is doing ok except she let her boyfriend's parents move in with them and isn't charging them rent. I told her she'd never get them to leave now. lolz

    2. Well hell woman if she is letting people live there for free, you should move in too! Hell, I should move in!

    3. I know right? lol
      I fear she got some of her mom's nice streak......I hope she doesn't live to regret this.

      And I'll let her know you are on your way! 8-)))

  2. Love the redneck party glasses! The boyfriend's parents will never leave now. I wouldn't if I could live somewhere rent free.
