Here are a few more for me...

Eckerd's

Transfered my husbands perscription there and they gave us a $30.00 gift card. So they actually paid me $25.80 to take the perscription :-)


Wal-Mart

1 can Parents Choice 160z formula
2 packages of McBaby Socks (2 pairs in each package)

Saved $ 14.50
Spent $2.26

Michaels Craft Store

Bought 16 pencils (the fancy type you see at the register)

Saved $ 4.14
Spent $.80


Masterloft store

Bought my Entertainment book there. They sell for $20.00 but they let me use a 5.00 off coupon that they gave out in my hospitial bag after having my son so I

Saved $5.00
Spent $15.00

But I will make up for what I spent on the book, because they have 12 coupons in there one for each month and you get $1.00 off your fill up of gas at Gate :-) r2g1f on movies, b1g1f on lots of resturants and lots of shopping discounts

Walgreens

They have the freebate on my hair color reg 3.99 and you get a rebate to get your 3.99 back (limit one per house so I have family members sending in the rebate for me)

Saved $15.96
Spent $1.04 after rebate for tax


Thats all for now...

Keep up the great savings everyone :-)

ok, not much, but I'm proud of it.

Went to taco bell last night, got over charged 25 cents for an extra side of tomatoes ( when I only wanted one) and a gordita with the tomatoes on the side, got the tomatoes on it, sent it back and you could tell where they had scraped them off b/c there were still tomatoes on there( dh hates tomatoes), so I called and got 2 free gorditas. Dh let them keep the 25 cents.

So
Spent : 6.65
Saved : 5.98

Went to Wal-Mart tonight got a pumpkin and carving kit

They started to charge me $8.87 for the pumpkin and I told the lady that the sign outside with all the pumpkins in it said $2.38 each, so

Spent $ 6.20
Saved $ 6.49


woo hoo, big huh?

Went to WalMart today to have Sydney's pictures taken in her Halloween costume, cost $5.95, had a complimentary package! Wanted to have my highlights done in my hair, but can't afford to have them professionally done like I usually do, so I bought the stuff. Cost $9.97.

Total cost: $9.97
Total Savings: $56.00
