Lately

I got some fabulous deals at Dillard's. Their winter stuff was on clearance for 70% off and it was an extra 40% off of that. Total steals. I got two bags stuffed full for $99. Not bad.

Rob and I went to a Stampede game. His boss rented a box and had the evening catered. Good food, meeting Rob's co-workers, some time spent with TJ and Aubrey that we don't often get and...oh yeah...a basketball game.

I also snagged some great deals at Walgreens. I was telling Rob about them and started laughing because it's so ridiculous. So here's the deal:
8 bars Dove soap
1 Axe shampoo
1 Colgate Max toothpaste
1 bottle Migraine medicine
2 jars green olives(yum!)
6 packages peeps
total-$34.89
minus coupons for
$2.02
$1.66
$4.80
total-$26.41
minus rebates of
$5.99
$2.99
total-$17.43
minus register rewards for soap and toothpaste
$10.00
$3.50
total-$3.93
minus rest of gift card from last round of rebates
$2.77
my grand out of pocket total was $1.16. For almost $35 worth of stuff. Crazy. I've also been snagging some great deals at Albertsons. I don't know why but I get such a kick out of this. I added a new link to the left for coupons and deals. She is local so everything she talks about is relevant to me. Makes it nice to have someone do all the hard stuff.

I've always wanted to go into a sky box - is that what it was? cool.

That's amazing! That much stuff for only a buck! I'm totally impressed. Pretty soon I'll be able to hunt for good deals like that too. I'll be calling you for tips! :)

Chrisanna just got me started on couponing. I am just a bit confused on the register rewards at Walgreens. How do you get them?

Gotta love a good deal! There has to be some scientific explanation for why it's so fun!
