Went to Walmart and looked at Halloween costumes....don't know why I have no

Decided to make something out of Gavin's clothes.

The Pirate costume would have been $24.99 before tax. Bought some read fabric instead (for his head and to tie around his waist) and only spnet $1.00.

Don't know if that counts or not!!!

Went to Walgreens for Kyle's meds.

Also bought laundry soap (the EXTREMELY generic kind). Was $4.99, got it for $1.99.

Spent: 1.99
Saved: $3.00

I figured at that price, if it sucks, I'm only out two dollars. *shrug*

Here are some more of my savings....

Target:

6 x 15oz Gerber Baby Wash

Saved:$12.96
Spent: $0.78


Eckards:

I tried the Eckards formula and didn't like it so I returned two containers and they gave me full price back even though I used 50% off coupon and a Gift Card but I had to get more formula.

So I got 6 tins of Enfamil Powder (14 oz) and got to use my Enfamil Checks (to bad I only had three checks with me) anyway they paid me to take the Enfamil

Saved: $68.47
Spent: 0 (they actually gave me $2.53 cash back)


Thats it for now...
