Frugalista Shopping, Week of May 23

Today, I made my typical stops at CVS and Walgreens.  I was spoiled the last two weekends since I got to do my shopping with my big sis Gal.  This week, however, my HHBL was along for the ride.  In many ways, my HHBL is worse than taking a child shopping.  I always feel rushed when he is with me, and his questions were starting to get on my nerves.  "Do we REALLY need another thing of toothpaste?"  "I'm thirsty, I need a Coke." "If we hurry, we can be home by 3:15."  Anyways, I made it through it and came out with a few good deals.

Here is the breakdown:


Total Spent: $1.19
Total Saved: $10.98
Total Care Bucks Earned: $8.00

***Note: Not pictured is the $1.59 Coke that I also had to purchase for my HHBL.

  1. A day shopping with HHBL: Priceless!

  2. I bought the body wash, too...and the Kellogg's cereal + coupon, the Garnier + 3 coupons (to get my $10 ECB), + diapers using both CVS coupons & Huggies coupons. Aren't you proud of me? lol. You are the queen of bargains!

  3. I'd love to see your cupboards with your stash of all your loot!

    You'd be proud of me... I combined coupons with sales at JCPenney today and saved $120 (only spent $65)!

  4. I did another post on being your Padawan learner this week! :)
