I’m so far beyond budget this week, it’s not even funny.
I had a few really good coupons for this week’s sale that I didn’t want to waste, so I did a little mini run this afternoon. This week’s budget is officially SHOT. I’m just starting over fresh next week.
7 Boxes Nature Valley Peanut Bars – Normally $3.19 each, on sale for $2 each, had 4 $.40/1 coupons (which did NOT double for some reason) and 3 $.50/1 coupons (which DID double…I don’t know) – $9.40 for 7 boxes
4 Boxes Uncrustables – Normally $2 each, had 4 $1/1 coupons – $1 for 4 boxes (considering I eat PB & J’s for lunch every day anyway, this is an awesome deal…25 cents per sandwich!)
1 Bag Fisher Fusions Snack Mix – Normally $1.79 each, on sale for $1.50 each, had $1/1 coupon – 50 cents total
1 Bottle Frank’s Red Hot Sauce – Normally $1.09, had a $.50/1 coupon (which doubled) – 9 cents total
2 cans Diamond Crystal Salt – Normally 89 cents each, had 2 30 cents/1 coupons (which doubled) – 58 cents for 2 cans
4 tubs/blocks Philadelphia Cream Cheese – Normally $1.89 each, on sale for $1.25 each, had a $1/4 coupon – $4 total
So, for $18.50 (pretax), I got $42.75 worth of products…57% savings!
It’s going to be a rough 24 hours. I just worked for 5 hours on blogs, and I have to be up at 5 to be to school by 6 in the morning to work. I have a faculty meeting tomorrow until 4, then more than likely will go back to working at school for another hour or two. Come home, work on blogs some more, rinse, repeat…you get it. Gotta make that money though! 🙂
Here’s what I did tonight.
I also did the drop-down menu for this blog (which, if you’ve ever made a drop-down menu, you know that it takes a little while…I consider that a blog design within itself!). Did I mention I’ve finally figured out how to do those? I need to put those on the blog page!
I also did some graphics for another blog that I’m about finished with…I’ll try to put that up this week!
For now, I’m going to sleep. Happy Monday to everyone!
