Food is getting so expensive although I did get quite a few non-essentials like vegan cheese. I get free travel on buses and tubes because of my husband's job.

Oh wow, what is your Husband's job? I find it ridiculous what they charge for such a short journey. And they're trying to encourage people to use public transport more? Pshhh.

Heya Jenn... ...how are you doing with those entertainment books?

*********************

Tarjay for me today

Clothing:
Two sleep shirts, one white and one pink, 9.99 each, one pair sleep shorts at 8.99, two pairs sleep pants at 12.99 each, one package of underwear at 8.00, with two extra undies inside so I got 8 for the price of 6, and six pairs of socks for 9.00.

Grocery:
1 bag potato chips for 4.00
1 bag tortilla strips on sale for 2.50
1 box Nature Valley granola crackers on sale for 2.50
2 boxes of organic lettuce, on sale for 2.50 each
1 box of cherries for 4.99 and trust me these will go FAST.
1 case of Diet Dr. Pepper on sale for 3.33
2 bottles of Dasani water at 1.42 each
(plus 80 cents deposit for the soda and water)
3 boxes of Morningstar Farm Hickory Smoked Riblets at 3.49 each

Home Goods:
1 box Kleenex hand towels for 2.99 and I had a 75 cents off coupon
1 box plastic cutlery for 3.59
2 packages of paper plates at 2.69 each
1 18-roll package of Cotonelle toilet paper at 12.99 and I had a 75 cents off coupon
1 4-box bundle pack of Kleenex tissues for 5.29 and I had a 50 cents off coupon

For mah kittez:
2 boxes of cat litter deodorizer at 3.19 each
1 can of Fancy Feast cat food on sale for 50 cents
18 cans of FF Elegant Medley cat food at 74 cents each and I had a dollar off coupon
1 small jug (forgot the size) of cat litter at 3.99 and I had a dollar off coupon
1 20 ounce jug of cat litter for 8.64 and I had a dollar off coupon

Stationery-Office:
2 double pocket folders with a picture of an adorable kitten on each for 99 cents each

She deducted 5 cents under "Target Coupon" four separate times which confuses me since I didn't use any Target coupons.

Less 7.26 Redcard savings (5%)
added in tax of 11.81
I also used a $25 gift card I got at work

Total: $149.78 Whew!

I wanted to buy some ice cream too but I knew I wouldn't have any room in my freezer. I should take some time this week to clean out my freezer since I really really really want some ice cream right now.

ETA: I forgot to mention that I got a prescription from the pharmacy which I paid for separately and which was $21 and change. I was planning to get two prescriptions but the current refill on one of them expired and I need to go digging for the new prescription my doctor gave me way back in January.

Okay, so yeah...I hadda go back to Target today to fill the aforementioned Synthroid prescription. I thought the prescription was somewhere in my apartment and it turned out it was in my car trunk the whole time and I could have used it yesterday had I remembered where I last left it and saved myself an extra trip to the store today..

Anyway, that was $23 and change...

And I decided while I was there to do some more shopping that I didn't do on Monday...

2 large bags of Reese's Pieces, on sale for 2/6.00
1 box of Nature Valley Graham Thins, chocolate. on sale for 2.50 This morning I tried the Peanut Butter flavor I bought yesterday and liked it enough to want to try the chocolate also...
1 8-cone box of Nestle's ice cream Drumsticks at 5.24 which was a slightly better deal than buying 2 4-cone boxes. And I found room in my freezer! (just barely)
1 bag of organic catnip at 3.29
54 cans of Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys cat food at 74 cents each and I had three 1.00 off coupons
2 20-pound containers of cat litter at 8.64 each and I had two 1.00 off coupons
after tax and deducting 5% for using my Target card, the total came to $70.88

I could have held onto those cat food and cat litter coupons for a while since they weren't expiring for quite some time, but after the experience of losing my coupon holder and then finding it two YEARS later and realizing that most of the coupons in it were expired, I decided, eff it, I'm using the coupons now since they're for stuff I need anyway.

My mom and I each had coupons for $10 of free merchandise at a favorite thrift shop. She used hers for me, so I got $40 worth of items for $20. Money really doesn't go as far as it used to at the thrift shops lately... that $40 amounted to two infant "track suits" (one was jacket and pants and other was t-shirt and pants), two infant sweatshirts, three infant t-shirts, three storybooks and a teddy bear bookend to go with the teddy bear theme in his bedroom.
