I have been blogging for more than a year now and I just passed 50,000 views. What a mile stone. Not that it really matters. I blog for me. To clear my mind. I also get support and have developed a great group of friends. So here are 50,000 Thank yous!
Last night I took hubby to the store before we went to clean our bank. We bought fruit and soda on sale. If you bought 4 diet coke (at the sale price) you got a large free bag of pretzels. Well all of Albertson's sales go for a week. Now they are following Safeway's games and only having sales for certain days. So you have to keep going back day after day. When we got to the check stand I could not believe the total. I told the clerk I was sorry but I would have to leave most of the things as I thought they were on sale. The manager rushed over and gave me the sale prices on everything. He said you have been loyal to this store for years. I also know how large your pharmacy bill is. I had just been back to order a medical supply pick-up for Friday and it was over $4000.00. I noticed the manager standing by the Pharmacy but I didn't think he was paying attention. He said he always paid attention when the Pharmacist started to whistle.
I also found a manufacture coupon for $2.00 off if you bought a box of Graham crackers, a 6 pack of Hershey's bars and a package of marshmallows. When I was in the store they also had a $1.00 off coupon so total of $3.00. I always keep s'more makings in the summer. But the price of each of those items was outrageous. I pull out the coupons and went to another store just a few blocks away where everything to make s'mores was on special. I was able to purchase the works for about $4.00. If I had taken it up at the original store it would have been about $8.50. My husbands thought I was nuts until I explained how much I saved on a 5 minute store stop. I will do the same thing tonight.
I need to run the lawn mower up to the repair shop today and also get some sewing done. Several people want to pick up today and I am not done with their things! It is just never ending.
Have a great and productive day!
