Walgreens - Redbox

Okay, Bo and I hate Walmart! (I'll get into our reasons in a later post.) We never ever go there, but we love Red box. So, we have made several trips to Walmart just to visit Red box, but the other night we pulled into the Walgreen's parking lot and we saw the this empty Red box. We both got excited. Now, we don't have to walk into any store and we don't have to fight for a parking place or anything. Red box is great and now that it is at Walgreen's it is prefect.

Sorry, this is so late, but this is what I purchased at CVS this week. I can't find all of the receipts, but I know that it took 3 transaction, and I spent around $12.00. I also got back $6.00 in extra bucks. I was lucky to have found the gift card coin purse at 90% off making them $0.39. I know that they will come in handy for a Bunko loser gift sometime.

Christmas Cards

Yes, these are my Christmas cards for December. No, I didn't purchase these at a great rate. I did one better than that, I got them for FREE! My boss and his wife were cleaning out their garage. He brought a box to work for us to go threw, and I found these. Now all I have to budget for is stamps, and the picture to go inside.


We went and visited Bo's grandmother this weekend and she had a great surprise for me - coupons. There were six packs of coupons.

Weekly Menu

I have found that Bo and I stick to a menu better if I have some idea for the month. Some thing always comes up and we move dinner items to the next month. That has always happened with my monthly plan and now it seems to be happening with my weekly plan, but we are still trying to stick with it.

Monday - Microwave Meatloaf, Mashed potatoes, & corn (hold over from last week) I'm not a big fan of meatloaf, but I'm willing to try this since it is one of Bo's favorite. His mom gave me the recipe. Hopefully, it will be as good as hers.
Tuesday - Frozen Shrimp Scampi, Mac & Cheese (I'm going to sewing and need something quick)
Wednesday - Honey Bar-B-Q Ribs, Salad & Baked Potatoes
Thursday- Leftovers
Friday-Mexican Pizza & Salad
Saturday - Steaks, Baked Potatoes & Salads

I'm going to try and stick with this plan this week.

Found It

I had read on Hot Coupon World that perfume gift sets were 90% at some stores. I went to 4 different stores before I found them. I know that this sounds odd but I love the smell of Fantasy by Britney Spears, but I would never pay full price. I am willing to give up a $1.99 for it. Thanks Hot Coupon World for letting me know about this great deal.

Weekend Update

First off it snowed today, which in south Alabama is a big deal.
Bo and I visited Goody's Clothing going out of business sale. While we were there they marked down all of there items to a dollar. I found 9 items that I really liked. I won't feel bad if I only wear them once or twice at that price.

I also went to CVS. I had to get some real medical stuff, but while there I found these bathrobes that someone on Hot Coupon World mentioned they were ringing up at 90% off. Man, what a deal a bathrobes for $1.49. The cream one is going to my mother who always wears a bathrobe. I think the pink one will be part of a gift.

We also visited Winn-Dixie. This weeks managers special was pork tenderloin. They were a little over $7.00 and a little over $6.00 a piece. What deals they have on Friday night? Who knew that grocery shopping would become part of our night out?

Also our Circuit City has 8 days left so Bo and I plan to make several trips there this week. We have our eye on a few things.
