Oh no she didn’t! Oh yeah, she did…
Ok, so I grappled for weeks over this one. Even though this blog is no longer “a coupon blog”, it’s still fun to see what people buy and actually eat, right? I mean, it’s like being a voyeur minus the nudity.
We can’t start getting naked in the blogosphere, right? Right. So the next best thing is being able to see what I’m buying. So it’s back. Maybe not every week, but I’m going to show you what I’m buying when I feel up to it. I feel up to it today.
Ok, so let’s start with last week…
Junk food. Unadulterated crap for our trip to Vermont. Not an iota of chlorophyll in the cart. No shopping from the perimeter of the store. Just the center aisles. I was mom of the week. Maybe even mom of the year. Buying Jiffy Pop makes my minion happy.
This week was back to reality. My first stop was Market Basket to stock up on affordable produce. Now that a Market Basket has opened close to my home, this is where I buy most of my produce.
Next stop, Stop&Shop. I love S&S for their gas points program. And this week Del Monte and Herbal Essence hair products are netting me cheap gas. Also, grapes are an impressive .88 per pound, which is pretty sweet.
The Flat Out Wraps are a big hit in this house, and since they are buy one get one free this week at S&S, we are stocking up.
I’ve yet to hit the drugstores, but I plan to early this week. I’m none too impressed with Rite Aid’s idiotic choice to wipe out paper Up+ Rewards. They are making their policies more and more couponer unfriendly. It makes me not want to shop there anymore.
And that is why most of my dollars go to CVS. Out of all the drugstores, I find CVS to be the most reasonable. For that, I’ll go out of my way to shop their sales and use my coupons on their products.
Ok, so the next picture I want to show you has nothing to do with shopping, but it does make me happy. So, I thought I’d share it with you.
When I did my walk today I saw the most beautiful rainbow I’ve seen in like, forever. It was so lovely that all the walkers and fishermen were standing there with their cell phones out, snapping pictures like their firstborn was taking their first steps. A vision of beauty for sure.
It made me smile. A big happy dimple producing smile.
How about you? What’s making you smile this weekend? Are you happy to see the “peek in my cart” posts back again? What bargains are you after this week?
