Some good deals this week

My sister-in-law and her daughters was visiting this week, along with my mother-in-law. I had fun running them all over town looking for school clothes. (Their favorite was CATO, a store I had never set foot in until this week. It's great, but I didn't buy anything.)

This is what I got on an all-purpose shopping trip to the drugstores, Wal-Mart and Michaels: Walgreens
  • Softsoap Nutra Serum body wash - FREE after Register Reward
  • 2 pkgs Trident gum - $0.15 each after sale and coupon

Rite Aid

  • Renuzit Crystal Elements - FREE after coupon and Single Check Rebate
  • 4 bottles child's craft paint (4 ozs each) - $0.25 each after Single Check Rebate


  • barn birdhouse for Cousin Camp next year - $1.25 ("as is" sale)
  • 2 pkgs (6/each) paint-your-own rubber ducks for Cousin Camp next year - $1.19/pkg (clearance)
  • 3 pkgs small Cuttlebug embossing folders (reg. $5.99) - $0.99 each (clearance) I'm using these as stocking stuffers for my kids! See the close-up below for better detail:

  • light bulbs for chandelier - $2.69 (I got the wrong size last time!)
  • coffee creamer - ?? (I forget the price, but it was the cheapest. My husband likes it just as well as the name brands.)
  • binder clips - $1.15 (?) (I'll try to remember to link to a fabulous idea by Lauren Meader using these!)
  • 6 pkgs Pull-Ups flushable wipes - $0.15 each after coupons
  • 2 boxes baking soda - $0.04 each after coupon

As you can see, I got some great deals! I also managed to find two khaki skirts while we were thrifting this week. I've been looking for one for about three years now. I'm very picky and pretty hard to fit, so it was wonderful to finally find not one, but two. And they're great brands, too - Liz Claiborne and Talbots!

I spotted your Cuttlebug folders right away! LOL Cute!

My daughter visited her grandparents (both sets) this summer, and the first store she wanted to go to with my sister was Cato. She loves that store, and she did fine a very cute skirt and top there. The skirt wasn't on sale, but it was so much cheaper than what she would find here in Canada that she went ahead and bought it - $20. Then she found a top for just $5, which was a good deal.
