I bought some pea shoots at a market in Chinatown and a moon cake from a Chinese bakery to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival (Moon Festival)!

Here's a thread we haven't seen for a while.

 

Today I bought:

  • Some minced garlic
  • Two ears of corn
  • Rice Chex
  • Fritos
  • Applesauce (for making dog-biscuits)
  • Marinara sauce
  • Fresh raspberries
  • And an electronic fan switch for my furnace (Winter will be here soon, and I had to pay an electrician to install it.)

 

What have you bought recently?

Jenn thumbsup.gif I think you're great for donating that stuff. I have two McD's coupons for the chillers, since they haven't expired yet I still have them but I haven't been inside a McD's in over 30 years and I'm hesitant to break my record. tongue3.gif

And whenever you post that you haven't gone shopping lately I know it's a matter of time before you come back and post that you've bought some awesome stuff with a lot of coupons and found some awesome bargains (and you'll be donating more stuff). There were no coupon inserts in the Sunday before Memorial Day newspaper but there were more than the usual coupon inserts in yesterdays paper so I know it's coming. tongue3.gif

Bought a new larger crate for my dog.  $104.95 ouch!

I use a crate when I'm traveling to provide a familiar place for my dog to sleep (though she usually sleeps with me on the motel bed) and a warmer place to stay in the car when I have to leave her. I also use it to give her time outs, and she uses it as her safe/comfort place (den).

The crate she was using got too small, and I got tired of watching her try to cram herself in it.

-I originally purchased that crate from Goodwill and used it to transport some of my chickens - when I had chickens. Then I used it when I got my new pup from the pound, and as her den in the living room.

I have a cage that is even larger (originally purchased for traveling with my old dog) but it's tough to load in the car, takes up too much room, and she currently uses it to sleep in in my room (when she's not in or under my bed).

Amy SF I went to Fantastic Sams today after work to pretty myself up a bit. I got a color treatment (and just in time; my hair was about 4 different colors - and not intentionally - when I walked in) and a haircut. I also bought shampoo, conditioner and styling product there. Total bill was about $117 which included a $15 tip for the stylist. She deserved it. grin.gif

Then I stopped into CVS Pharmacy and bought:

1 box frozen Lean Cuisine cheese ravioli, on sale, which I ate when I got home. Not the greatest frozen meal I've ever had, but not as bad as others I've tried. I'd eat it in an emergency, but it wouldn't be my first pick, either.
1 Oral-B toothbrush and I used an Extracare $1 off coupon
1 bag pumpkin seeds
1 Cottonelle moist wipes refill package which I plan to take to work with me (I've been looking for a smaller travel/trial size, with no luck). You'd understand why if you worked at the hospital where I work. Maybe because it's a county hospital and they have to stick to a budget, but they supply the restrooms with the cheapest, crappiest toilet paper on the planet. Ouch. brood.gif At least it was discounted to 1.99 for Extra Care card users.

vincent Today i bought:

1.5kg dates
500g pack of TVP
5 bags of apples
2 cucumbers
1kg carrots
1 wholemeal sliced loaf
£5 top-up for my iPhone

How thoroughly interesting, hope you enjoyed reading, or perhaps you lost the will to live whilst perusing this thread?

Amy SF I went back to Target today to pick up the Synthroid prescription I couldn't get on Friday. While I was there I also bought:

a new watch, $15. I haven't worn a wristwatch in years, and finally decided it was time to wear one again.
1 3-pack of socks
1 nightgown: this time I found the lavender one in size medium that I couldn't find on Friday
the current issue of People magazine and I had a Target POS coupon from Friday
1 large container of Archer Farms trail mix on clearance which is for my munchies (and to share) at work
1 package Oreo cookies
2 1-liter bottles of Arrowhead drinking water
1 small jar of Grey Poupon Dijon mustard
1 package multigrain Oroweat sandwich bread and it was on sale
1 Light and Lean Amy's frozen spaghetti and vegan meatballs which I already ate
1 12-pack of Diet Dr. Pepper and it was on sale
1 multipack of Zone Perfect protein bars, chocolate peanut butter
1 Hefty 6 quart plastic storage box to use as a breadbox since my freezer still isn't working
1 box Up (Target brand) plastic wrap
1 package Up small paper plates
30 cans Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys cat food, and I used a Target POS coupon from last Friday on 12 and manufacturer's coupon for the other 18 that I pulled off one of the cans. (I also pulled several more coupons from some of the other cans, to use later)

with discounts, sales, and coupons, including 5% for using my Target card, total savings: $10.05
total damage: $112.69

I think I left my brain behind somewhere on the San Diego Freeway. brood.gif I had a Target list with me, and forgot to grab it when I parked and got out of the car. I could have gone back to get it, but didn't. I have no idea if I got everything on my list. While I was inside, I accidentally dropped my coupon organizer into my shopping cart. It was open, and everything fell out. Now all my coupons are a disorganized mess. Oh, well, I plan to clip coupons and reorganize them on Sunday anyway. thinking.gif

Then I went over to Quiznos in the same shopping center and I got a large veggie sub for my dinner, $6.54, which was pretty good (they make them to order now) except I think from now on I'll have them leave out the jalapenos. inquisitive.gif

Amy SF Hmmm...someone's birthday is coming up soon. thinking.gif

I did some shopping at Target after work today. Please do not ask me why I waited until Friday night. I'm too exhausted to figure it out myself. tongue3.gif

Anyway, this is what I bought:

1 30-count refill of 50 mg Synthroid. I also wanted to refill my 75 mg Syntroid prescription, but I didn't realize that I needed a new prescription, and Friday night before the Memorial Day weekend when you have just one pill left (for Sunday) is NOT the best time to find this out. wall.gif The pharmacist faxed a request to the doctor's office, but it may be Wednesday or Thursday when I can go back to Target to get my meds. blush.gif
1 black belt with silvertone buckle
1 2-pack of mini lint rollers
1 50 oz bottle of Woolite and I had a 1.00 off coupon
2 Merona cardigans, one black and one white, and one of them was on sale
2 Merona short sleeved Boho tops, one light blue and one red
1 black nightgown. I also wanted the pretty lavender, but they didn't have it in my size. sad.gif At least when I wear the black one, I can pretend I'm Morticia Addams. tongue3.gif
1 6-pack Hanes underwear
1 Hanes bra
1 3-pack athletic socks
1 3-pack Merona socks
1 Lifescapes Tranquility DVD/CD set: The CD has soothing music and the DVD has a meditation tutorial on it. And just in time. The back of my neck is killing me. veryangry.gif
The latest issue of People magazine, and I had a 1.00 off Target POS coupon that I got from the pharmacy earlier in the evening. tongue3.gif And btw, when I paid at the regular checkout, I got TWO more POS coupons for People magazine. tongue3.gif (I think the cashier accidentally gave me an extra one).
1 Hershey's milk chocolate with almonds bar and 1 Hershey's milk chocolate aerated bar, and I had a BOGO free coupon for both.
1 bag Mission tortilla chips, and it was on sale
2 1-liter bottles of Arrowhead drinking water
1 bag Wonderful Pistachios and I had a 50 cents off coupon
1 small bottle of Heinz ketchup, and I had a 50 cents off coupon
1 Amy's frozen enchiladas which I microwaved and ate the minute I got home because I still don't have a working freezer brood.gif
1 package of Tillamook cheese slices
1 box Kleenex hand towels which was on sale and I had a 50 cents off coupon that I peeled off the box
1 package of Chinet plastic cups on sale and I had a 1.50 off coupon
1 package of Up paper plates
1 box cat litter deodorizer
6 cans Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys cat food on sale and I had a 1.00 off Target POS coupon
5 24-can cases of Fancy Feast cat food and I used five 1.00 off coupons

This time as I shopped I wrote down what items I was buying that I had coupons for and the value of each coupon.

I also got a POS Fancy Feast coupon at the checkout. Since I have to go back to Target next week anyway, I'll most certainly use it then.

total saved with coupons, sales and an extra 5% off for using my Target redcard: $34.75
