Weekly Savings #11

Nothing exciting this week, but I had Register Rewards that were expiring so I had to make a trip (it's annoying that RRs are only good for two weeks).

- pencil case (for Shiph's crayons): $1.99
Used $6 RRs on this transaction.
Total OOP = $1.89
Total Savings = $19.95
RRs received = $3

Didn't have to hit CVS this week, but it's literally a block down from Walgreens, so I figured why not. :)
- pretty notebook: $1.25 (on sale 50% off)
- 3 bottles of Suave body wash: $4 (after Buy2Get1 mf coupon) plus $2 ECBs
Used $5 ECBs on this transaction.
Total OOP = $0.27
Total Savings = $10.01
ECBs received = $2
[YTD CVS Savings = $300.99]

Still good on meat and most staples, so the list was short.

Total Savings = $6.28
Total Grocery Spending = $46.68
($3.32 under budget)

Shiphrah and Kirk have both been blessed with family and friends who graciously have given them hand-me-downs. Unfortunately at the rate Shiph is growing, it'll be years before some of the clothes fit her and she's starting to get off-sync with sizes vs. seasons (most of the fall/winter clothes we have from her cousin Livi are 24 mos and Shiph is still barely fitting 18 mos clothing). Kirk has a few long-sleeved onesies and jackets for the fall but no pants. So I talked my wonderful hubby into making a trek to the San Marcos outlet mall to visit Children's Place and Old Navy. I wanted to end up with about a week's worth of outfits for each child. Shiphrah mainly needed shirts (she has plenty of jackets and jeans from last year that still fit) and a few Sunday dresses. Here's what I ended up with (and they should be set until April/May...Texas only has two seasons...Summer [April - September] and Fall/Winter/Spring [October - March]):
4 long-sleeved shirts
1 sweater
2 dresses
1 pair of khaki pants
1 white shrug for Spring

1 pair of shoes
2 pairs of pants
2 long-sleeved onesies
1 long sleeve shirt
Total Spent = $94.48
