Started off the day at the dentist. Well, after getting the kids situated & started on home school. Apparently my daily breakfast of Diet Mt. Dew and a caramel Fiber One granola bar (AFTER the morning teeth brushing) was a huge mistake. Had more cavities develop in the last 6 months than in the 10 years prior. Ugh! And I HATE going to the dentist. Anyway, after the expensive stop at the dentist I needed to find some bargains. On the way home I stopped by Aldi's for some milk at $1.99/gallon. Our family drinks 5-6 gallons per week, so whenever we're on the side of town where Aldi's is we stop & buy the limit.
In the evening,. dear hubby & I made it errand date night after grouting the bathroom tile and putting the little kids to bed we headed out to hit a couple of sales and pick up some meds. First stop: Fred's. They had Reach toothbrushes on sale for $1 each. I had 2 coupons for $2 off 2. So we got 4 toothbrushes for 24 cents of tax :) And it was on the way to CVS so no wasted gas!
CVS was a little disappointing. They didn't have the deodorant or the Cadburry mini eggs that were on sale. But we did pick up 2 packages of silly bands for Easter goodies for our two littlest. They were on clearance for 10 cents each. I also picked up a moneymaker of Zyrtec. Pack of 5 pills on sale for $5.99 less $2 off coupon (net $3.99) with $5.99 ECB back! I also picked up a fancy Schick Hydro razor for $1.99 (after ECB and coupons).
Oops. Almost forgot about one more deal of the day. We have a new gas station that just opened down the street from our house. Yesterday must have been their first day because they were running a special gas price about 20-25 cents cheaper than everyone else in town. We didn't really need gas, but why not top off the tank with that great price?!
Happy bargain hunting!
