After we cleaned the bank last night my husband told me he needed to go and get his prescriptions filled. I took him to the grocery store that houses our pharmacy and gave him $40.00 as he had 3 prescriptions and that would cost $30.00 with co-pays. I picked up a few sale items and he did not meet me up front. I went to look for him and he was at the pharmacy, because his bill was for $70.00. What? Well if they fill a three month prescription we can save $20.00. But it is an aggravation to pay more for pills than for food. A sign we are getting old.
I really get tired of grocery stores and their promo cards. They want your phone # they want your e-mail address. They want to trick you out of your money. They have reward points, but only on food I would not eat. Mostly convenience crap. If I want to eat crap I go to McDonalds. But with the new program at our very expensive grocery store we get 500 bonus points a month per prescription. With the 10 we purchase a month we will get two $5.00 grocery off coupons. Not bad, we also get gas rewards for the value of our prescriptions. Right now I have .20 off a gallon just for the prescriptions we purchased last night. So maybe this will be worth it. Remember one of mine is over $2000.00 a month. I might just be able to fill up for free. But they will figure out a way to top it, so we can't use that much.
I did get a great deal of sewing done yesterday. DD#2 helped me. I have to get in and hem 3 bridesmaids dresses and get a couple of other piles done. But right now I am broke because of said drugs, a few groceries, laundry detergents, bleach, and I got my hair cut and my eyebrows waxed. I was starting to look like a Wookie.
Out My Window: It is very cold today. I am in my winter clothes. I was hoping to get some trimming done tomorrow, but my hands won't work if it is too cold. I also turned off the outside water. The sprinkler company will come and blow out the line some time this next week. I realize that we really have not spent a lot on water this past summer. We had such a late spring and we had no real hot weather until late August. I will be interested to gt our next water bill and compare it to last years.
I am going down to my shop, after I do a little housework and get the laundry started. I will also start a couple of loaves of bread.
Have a great and productive day!
