Well I Lied!

Because the weather was nice and sunny though frigid, Hubs and I went out for a bit yesterday.

I had $5 to spend at Kohl's.
I ended up spending a bit more to use that $5 but it was a clearance find or two(or three).

Then we had lunch.....

Of course I used a coupon.  ;-)

Then it was off to the local craft brewery.....


Hey, that looks good, I'll have one of those!

Hubs got an IPA, then a small flight of 3 samples and a Growler fill before we left to go home.
I had considered stopping in at KMart to check out the Winter clothing clearance deals but we decided to head home instead after using my gas points to fill my car's gas tank.

Oh, and the first stop when we headed out was to Rite-Aid.
You see, I had a $1 off coupon for a brand of hand cream Hubs likes.  After coupon and 20% wellness discount I'd still have to spend down the +Up Rewards about $5.  So I also bought some tubes of Cerave lotion.......

1 x Working Hands 20% off=$5.83
2 x Cerave lotion BOGO50%=$7.93

Coupons Used
1 x $1/1 Working Hands ManuQ=$1.00
1 x $7/2 Cerave porducts ManuQ=$7.00
Coupon Total......$8.00

$13.76-$8.00=$5.76 + .41¢ tax=$6.17

I used $5 in +Up Rewards and paid $1.17 on a gift card I need to use up.
I received back a $3 +Up Reward for buying the Cerave items(They cost me .93¢ after coupon but I got back $3 so that was a moneymaker item and helped cover a bit of the cost of the Working Hands cream.)

Since I've closed out the books for February on Friday night I'll put this trip on March's food/toiletries budget.

Today it started snowing way earlier than they forecast so I've been inside doing book work, genealogy, DNA, and binge re-watching Downton Abbey in between popping outside to do a little shoveling.

Yes, just another thrilling weekend here in the armpit of PA.  ;-)




  1. love Bob Evans when we come to the States.

  2. It sounds like you had a lovely day! A good start for March, I'd say.

    1. I have never heard of working hands until today at Bob's house. Then, I see it here. The foot of snow we got magically disappeared, thankfully. There is snow left, but not where anyone needs to drive or walk.

  3. I had brunch with the boy at Bob Evans! Great minds think alike!

    Peace <3

  4. lol do you ever not use a coupon?

  5. Tell hubs the beer is better by us! HINT, HINT.
    Once I close the books on a month I never go back and add to it. It all gets thrown in the next month no matter what. Too much work.
