Since the big storm was slated to commence Wednesday afternoon and I had CVS ECBs expiring that day(figures, right?)Hubs and I headed out to run a couple errands before the snow flew.
First it was CVS........
I wanted to get some useful things(not just oral care items and shampoo which are the only CRTs I ever get)so I picked up TP, Kleenex and a Bday card. The Maybelline baby lips were free after Instant Q at the redbox and the $5 ECB buying 2 gave back. The small Wet n' Wild gift sets cost .97¢ for all 3. $4.99 each and gave back $4 in ECB plus I had a $2/$12 cosmetics CRT that came off so .97¢ + sales tax spent down on my ECBs I paid with.
I think I got the wrong Kleenex that were suppose to be 2 for $3 as they rang up reg. $2.09 each price instead of $3 for 2 and the cashier pushed the $1/2 redbox Q through.
Should have been subtotal of $39.52-$11 in Qs/CRT=$28.52 and 27.48 paid in ECBs=$1.04 + sales tax OOP.
Ended with the wrong price chaarged on the Kleenex as $40.70-$11 in Qs/CRT=$29.70 and $27.48 paid in ECBs=$2.22+.08¢ sales tax so $2.30 OOP.
Whatever. I was in no frame of mind to fight over the $1.18 I was overcharged.
I earned back $20 in new ECBs($12 gift sets, $3 TP, $5 Maybelline). I used the expiring ECBs and rolled other forward so mission accomplished.
Then it was on to Rite-Aid to pick up an Rx and I used/rolled some Bonus Cash with this transaction....
I had a $2/1 Tresemmé Load2CardQ and that conditioner was 50% on clearance for $2.99 making that .99¢ after Q.
I got 2 x Poise liners on sale for $4.99 each and used 2 x $2/1 Poise Qs(1 L2CQ, 1 IPQ)and they gave $5 in BC when you bought 2 so they "cost" .98¢ total + .06¢ sales tax.
I also did a food deal which isn't pictured--2 DiGiorno pizzas and 2 SF Powerads for $12 which earned me $3 in BC. The pizzas also earned me $1.50 in Ibotta rebates.
Altogether this all was $24.97-$6 in Qs so $18.97+.06¢ sales tax=$19.03 paid for with BC and I earned back $8 in BC and $1.50 in cash rebates. $19.03-$9.50 rebates/BC means I spent down the BC by $9.53.
We got home around noon and the snow had begun to lightly fall.
Before I went to bed I took this photo of the back deck.......
You go out and shovel and within the hour your path was covered up again. After I came upstairs it began to sleet too which was going to make shoveling out extra fun! hahaha
Ex-College Boy had a rough time getting home from work. Even though corporate closed his store early at 6:30 his route home is partly via interstate and a semi-almost ran him off the road. He did get home safely but it took an hour(double his commute time). I-80 about an hour West of here in central PA had a massive vehicle pile-up and shutdown all lanes Westbound for quite some time due to the 60 vehicle crash where 2 people died. So sad right before Christmas....
This morning it's sunny but still in the 20's. Here's a shot from the front porch before Hubs attempted to dig out the cars in the driveaway.........
The trusty yardstick says we got a literal 12 inches. The local weatherman reported that parts NorthWest of here got as much as 30 inches. Yikes! It was a doozy of a storm here.
How about where you are. How much snow did y'all get?
