Here is the free fabric I picked up over the weekend using my $20.00 rewards coupon.
I decided to do a super clean on our coffee maker last week, all was going well until I got to the underside where the coffee drains into the pot. Holy cow its a wonder I haven't killed someone, talk about nasty!!!! Hubby happened to call while I was working my magic and suggested we spring for a new one. I sooo had to agree. I can't believe the price of coffee makers, some were well over $300.00, no way no how! I went with this one, regular price $69.99 on sale for $48.99, not to bad. I also had a 20% off coupon so the price dropped even more, along with $10.00 Kohl's cash I walked out the door with a $69.99 coffee maker for only $30.19 but the savings didn't stop there!! I picked up a pair of jeans for myself (a post of it's own) so I reviced an additional $10.00 in Kohl's cash. Not done yet, when the receipt printed out there is a $10.00 rebate on the coffee maker. Confused yet?? Once the rebate comes in I basically got the coffee maker for $20.00. That's spending that I can live with.
On to Staples to cash in my rewards dollars. Two ink cartridges for the grand total of $0.94.
CVS was the last stop, again to use rewards dollars that were going to expire. Rice A Roni was on sale 10/$10.00, Doves dark chocolate 2/$6.00, total spent $0.72
Yesterday was my running around day cashing in on rewards dollars and coupons. I hate doing things like this on Sunday but I knew my back couldn't hold up to lugging that car seat in and out of the car and buggies. By the end of the day I was done in. I am trying very hard to give my back a break so I can hold up with the little ones this week. It is going to be a very, very, VERY long week.
