Frugal wins this past week, May 7th to May 13th........
* Well it was bound to happen. While on vacation we hit an Ollie's(Good Stuff Cheap!). So as soon as I got home I got a 15% off flyer in the mail. lolz Potential savings for my next trip to Ollie's? Perhaps....
* Hubs and I went to Target last weekend to do the Spend $20/Get $5 Gift Card deal, as well as pick up a few items to finish my Ibotta Weekend Bonus. The trip turned into a clusterfuck!
Since my knee was messed up I took advantage of those electric shopping carts rather than keep walking on it and let me tell you it was great! The problem came when I went to check out as I used a self-checkout. The employee working that area saw me in that electric shopping cart and came right off to give me "assistance" which I didn't need. I guess she figured I was a doddering old lady so she took over scanning my items and must have had 5 Red Bulls that morning because she was moving like "The Flash", pushing buttons and ringing stuff up before I could do my coupons, etc. I was dizzy and wondering what just happened and ended up using all my free gift cards to pay that were in my Target wallet and then OWED another $6.07.
So we went over to the customer service desk to hash these mangled transactions out.
I found both this dime and penny in the parking lot at the "Suspicious Rite-Aid". I don't enjoy going there since it's the furthest R-A away that I frequent but I go there because it's a LARGE store and I can find stuff there I can't find at other R-As plus it's super clean. Except the parking lot has money in it. lolz I call it the "Suspicious Store" because the cashiers inspect every coupon you try to use and if you end up getting back more BC than you spend they will go over your receipt like it's Nazi Germany and you are presenting your papers for inspection. What one has to do sometimes to beat the system.....
Total Change Found This Week.... .33¢
Total Change Found This Year......$3.72
* Hubs and I hit the Produce Outlet on Wednesday and got fresh produce(10 lbs taters, 2.5 lb. squash, 2 lb. strawberries, 1 lb. carrots, etc.), canned OJ, a 2 lb bag of frozen veggies, 2 packs of bacon, 1 lb. of frozen salmon, a pack of creamed spinach, 4 pot pies, a bag of lettuce, a huge can of corn, a lb. of Whole Foods dried cranberries and a WF chocolate brioche plus 2 other items I can't identify from the receipt for $30.41. I figure it's all more than 50% off regular retail at Whole Foods or Weis or whatever other retail grocer around here(not that we have a Whole Foods within 100 miles of us). We got great value for that $30.41.
That's about it this week other than all my Rite-Aid hauls which I'll talk about later this weekend. There were 4 different Spend $50/Get $15 Bonus Cash codes again this sales week. Yum!
What frugal wins did y'all have lately!?
