Last Saturday I headed over to Rite Aid…
I was able to pick up 9 bottles of Gain dish detergent for FREE…
I think I’ll set these aside for my Christmas 2011 Gift Baskets…
I heart “try me free” offers… I don’t even care what it is they want me to try… If I can make a little moolah off it… I’ll toss it in the cart.
So After I factored in my rebate (and the stamp)
$23.07 (weekly budget)
-5.38 Out of pocket
+$4.55 ($4.99 rebate less .44 cent stamp)
I was left with $22.24 for the rest of the week
and $7 in Up Rewards to spend.
After I took into account my rebates…
I paid .28 cents for the above…
And was left with $22 in Up Rewards
And left with $21.96 to spend for the rest of the week.
I earned another $6 in Up Rewards to use on my next Rite Aid transaction.
Plus I had to empty Mr. Piggy’s belly of the $13.11 to help cover the overpriced food I picked up at Costco for Monkey Boy and The Handsome Husband to eat while The Girl and I jetted off to London for 4 days (1 1/2 days traveling * 2 1/2 days sight seeing).
But that still wasn’t enough…
-$13.71 left in my weekly budget
-$13.11 Mr Piggy (from the previous weeks)
$19.69 in the hole
So I “borrowed” $19.69 from this weeks budget (week #9) leaving me with $3.38 and $6 in Up Rewards for week #9. Since it’s Monday… and I only have 5 days to go… I should be fine. We have plenty of bread, veggies and I have Up Rewards I can use for milk… So I’ll manage.
Luckily it snowed…
So there you have it.
That was week #8 of 52
What did you splurge on this week?
