Summer Days

Summer is so great. It's nice not having to think about school work. My job is going pretty good. The kids are mean but what more can you expect. I wish I was getting more hours but its nice to have time to relax as well. Roomie and fluffy came back today so I wont be lonely anymore. :).
My premier party last weekend went great! My show was around $600 which means for $39 I got over $300 worth of jewelry. I only had to pay shipping and tax. I have been getting some really good deals so far this summer. I am making a diaper cake for a friends baby shower and started collecting diapers with all those $3/1 Huggies coupons. As of now I have over 150 diapers which is more than enough and have not even spent $15. I consider that a very good deal. Tonight I went to Target and got all the stuff pictured for $10 and got a $5 gift card.

Although that is a good deal I forgot $3 in coupons so it should have been better. It was for the one of the deodorants. So I will probably just return it and buy it again. Which then will make my total $7 for the items pictured and a $5 gift card. I bought the olay product because I made money on it and the SOBE life water was FREE so i thought I would try it. So everything else was under $1.

A few great deals

Well summer is finally here and I actually have time to think about something other than school! I have been really focusing on couponing this week and actually scored some good deals! Yesterday I went to CVS and picked up some Huggies( for a gift) and some crest. In all I spent $9.25 and got back $6 is ECB's for a total of $3.25 for what is pictured. The toothpaste was supposed to give me a $3.50 ECB but it didn't print so when I asked about it and they guy went in and made it print it gave me $4 so that worked out in my favor and the toothpaste rang up $2.75 instead of $3.50. So I consider that a pretty good deal.

Today I went to target and also got some pretty good deals.
I got everything in this picture for $18.15 including tax. The one downside to coupons at target is you have to pay tax on the original total. In all I saved $24.22 or $29.49 if you count sales! I think that's pretty good!

Here are some of the deals:
Nabisco 100 cal pack $2.41 x4
used 2 B1G1 Free and B3G1 Free Target Q
Total $2.41 Bought 1 and got 3 free

Crystal Light $1.97 each
3 X $1/1
Total 1.91 for 3

Steam Fresh Veggies: $1.07 x2
2x .50/1

Sunsweet ones =FREE
Bandaids 0.37
Marshmallows 0.80 on sale

Gillette Mens Body Wash $2.99 x2
Total 1.98 for 2

Hopefully this week brings more great deals. My stock pile is growing quick. I'm not sure where I am going to start putting it. I have a list of good deals for CVS and Walgreens this week, so we will see what happens.
