Running Around

I've been up since 6 this morning running around. For anybody that knows me, I'm SO NOT a morning person!! But the kids went to bed early @ 7:30 last night so of course they were up early. But that's fine because I was meeting my mom for breakfast before they left today. I stopped by Publix and CVS on the way to pick her up.
I'm sorry but I don't have any pictures tonight - I was too tired when I got home.

Publix -
4 boxes of huggies wipes - 2.99 each
2 boxes of rice-a-roni - b1g1f - i think 74 cents each
1 fig newton bar - .50 cents

I spent .85 cents out of my pocket after coupons. WOOHOO!

I then went to CVS which was right across the street. I did 2 separate orders.

4 boxes of alavert - 6.99 each - used $4 coupon
got back 16 dollars in EBCs

5 18oz softsoap spa - 5.49 each
Got back 27.45 in EBCs

I don't know if its just me, but CVS is sure printing alot of coupons on my receipt lately! I came out with like 6-7 extra coupons.


Opps forgot to add... I made another stop at publix because my mom needed to get some money out. So while I was there..

3 boxes of Huggies wipes - 2.99
4 boxes of lipton tea bags - 1.03
1 bottle of sunkist that my daughter picked up.

I paid 1.34 out of my pocket and that's because it was the drink. The cashier said she couldn't take the full amount on the huggies coupon. I told her well then put in the price for it then. It was 1 freaking cents! big whoopie! This was at the milstead publix too.

I had to take Caden to the doctor this morning because he had an asthma attack Saturday night after a birthday party and he's been sick since then. He's been sleeping a lot, breathing hard, coughing, not eating, etc. So I took him to the doctor and they gave him 6 different kind of meds, including 2 refills that he needed. He also has an ear infection, poor guy! :( All I can say is thank god for insurance!!

while I was waiting for Caden's rx's to be filled. I went shopping at Kroger. They had milk marked down to $1 and I think they screwed up because it had a 4/30 exp. date on it. But I got 3 gallons of milk, 4 airfreshner , sour cream, and shredded cheese for $11.67

We have been busy busy busy this weekend. We went out on Saturday running errands. Then we had a birthday party to attend that night. It was at an inflatable bouncy house. We all had fun but poor caden overdid himself. He woke up at midnight having an asthma attack. Today I went to CVS before we went to another birthday party at McDonald's. CVS doesn't have too much good deals this week. So I didn't get as much.

Alavert - on sale 6.99
Freestyle meter - $10.00
Speed stick - $3.99

I paid 0.00 out of my pocket after coupons and ebcs. I got $17.99 in EBCs.

Thank God its Friday!!

I called my mom this morning because I was bored and wanted to see what she was up to. She asked me if I wanted to go out to lunch, her treat. So about 11, me and the kids got dressed and went over to pick up my mom at her hotel. While on the way, I stopped by CVS and got in the M&M deal.
I bought 10 bags of candy for .14-.15 cents a bag. NOT BAD!! There is some bags missing already because I gave some to my mom. I sure don't need all those candies but I couldn't pass up this deal. I'll probably give some to Kayla's preschool and save some for later.

I went and picked up my mom and we went to O'Charleys. YUM!! I got the chicken tenders and fries and a salad. They don't do their croutons anymore :( After wards we went to Walmart because I needed to buy some birthday gifts for 2 people this weekend. We are going to a birthday party on Saturday night, and then another on Sunday afternoon. While I was there, I decided to go ahead and get the carseat I've been eyeing for Caden since he's about to outgrow his carseat. This is the one I got him.
