4/12: Week 5
Purchase: I just wasn’t feeling inspired by the grocery adds this week and decided to go “off list”. The Sunday newspaper (4/10) smart source insert had a coupon for $3.oo off of Bic Hybrid razors which are also on sale at Rite Aid. The coupon makes them $1.99 each. In addition there is a $2+UP reward when you buy two which makes them $.99 each. Perfect for the boys in the family. This made a total of $3.96.
I added Idahoan dehydrated potatoes from Albertson’s. When I added 5 extras to some other groceries I was purchasing, I was able to qualify for the $5.00 back when you buy 10 items. This made the potatoes $.49 each. I found a link at Coupon Connections NW to a coupon for an additional $1.00 off three packages which brought them down to only $.16 each.
Chore: This week I need to go through some odd little light kits that I bought a couple of years back after the “big snow storm”. I can’t really remember what’s in them. It ends up that the boxes contain SnapLights emergency Glow Sticks.
The larger kit contains:
- 2 x homework lights (2 hour)
- 2 x room lights (4 hours)
- 2 x night lights (8 hour)
- 1 x evacuation light (4 hour)
Each of the smaller boxes contains 2 x home lights (4 hour)
The biggest problem that I see is that they do have a sticker that reads “best used by May 2011” so I guess I will pack them away with the evacuation supplies as a backup. I’ll make sure that I have another source of light in case they don’t work.
Wish: I still need to find a nice old tool kit or tackle box at the Goodwill store to turn into a medical kit. I need to also locate a list of what to include.
