Happy Sunday! Just came back from Kroger (nothing like your cat waking you up at 6:30 and you deciding it's a good time to go to the grocery store without a shower and what you slept in last night) and got some pretty good deals (even got something for FREE, plus a dollar extra).
Before I get to that... I wanted to show you some of the cool stuff I got at one of my friend's garage sales this weekend. My friend Laurie (who [whom?] the bridal shower was thrown for last weekend) was having a garage sale this weekend to purge of a lot of her stuff before she gets married and moves to Houston (and six months later moves to Canada!). She actually had some great things, including these glass pieces.
When I walked in, I had to have them! They are actually really nice [read... expensive] serve ware and I was happy to get them. I am in love with the oblong one I put on my coffee table.
Plus, a matching bowl that's on the dining room table.
Only $8 for both! I also got shoes, a scarf, free weights, and other little items.
Another Kroger run-down for you guys...
*2 Ghiradelli brownie mixes ($1/2 coupon)
*St. Ive's lotion ($.75/1)
Wholely Guacalmole ($4/1, which made it FREE and somehow they gave me the $1 overage, which is like getting, or rather is getting, the 2 Mac and Cheese for free too!)
Baby Greens Salad ($.40/1)
*2 Glade candles ($1.50/2) [I am in love with these]
*2 Annie's Homegrown Mac and Cheese
*2 Green Giant Steamer Veggies
*Libmann kitchen sponges (apparently I can launder and reuse these?)
Yellow rice mix
Total Value: $42.95
Total Spent: $23.96
Total Saved: $18.99 (44%)
Not bad (total price wise) considering my groceries from last week are still carrying over into this week (still have 4 servings of chicken and 1 of beef left, plus one night will be quiche night!) and I used only part of my Drip money (I still work at a coffee shop once or twice a month to fill in if people need me. It's a nice little extra money for not [too] much work) to pay for my groceries so I really didn't even go in to my budget at all for the trip!
