This morning on the way to school with JD, we decided to get a little more of our Christmas shopping done. I knew exactly what I wanted to get and I have not been able to find coupons for the items so I left my coupon bag in the car. JD and I were walking across the parking lot, when he screamed... "Mommy your upon book." (He never says the q sound") I told him it was okay because I did not have any coupons for the things we were getting but that answer was not good enough for him. He told me I needed it in case I saw something else I needed. I finally convinced JD that I had a very short list and we would only get what was on the list. He accepted that answer finally. So we went through the store got our items, all of them... (thanks to the stock people who went to the back to find the Toy Story Mr. Potato Head) and made our way to the front. We checked out, staying under out budget and started heading out the door. When the cashier gave me our receipt, he handed me a catalina for $5.00 next purchase. I remembered that I had one of these catalinas from another trip so I started hunting through my purse to find it. JD asked what I was doing and I told him that I had forgotten to use a coupon so I was searching in my purse for it.  I handed the catalina to the manager at customer service, and she handed me cash back for my forgotten catalina. I was very excited that Target did not give me a hard time. As we were walking out to the car, JD informed me that I should have put the catalina in the coupon book so I could find it next time. I guess I should take his advice. It would have been easier to find than in my purse! Oh well!

Wags 11-29

My trip to Walgreens on November 29th was a very successful trip for some baking neccessities. I was not really planning on going to Walgreens this week, because I have not had much success but I decided to try anyway. Joshua had gone early in the morning to Walgreens to get some pictures developed and brought home a Register Reward for $3.00 off $15. I had a $5.00 RR from last week so I tried my luck. I purchased
4 boxes of confectioners sugar * .69 each
2 bottles of Welch's sparkling Grape Juice $3.50 each
1 pack of Huggie Wipes $2.99
1 box of Granola Bars $2.50
1 box of Oatmeal $2.50.
My total before tax was $15.78. I used by RR for $3.00/$15 first then the $5 RR. After a variety of coupons used my total was $2.82.oop. I received a RR for $2.00 so basically that trip costed my $.82.

I have plans to return on Wednesday using my 15% shopping pass and purchasing the Melatonin that goes on sale on Wednesday. All in All I had a very good trip to WAGS.
