After a rough start I am hoping for a quite month.

After being on heavy duty antibiotics for a week I am feeling better and my Asthma seems to be under control again. I was able to get out a little and get a few deals.

2/9 Sam's Club
4.88 Aquafina 32 pack (DD and I will bring this to FL in 36 days for our Spring Break Disney Trip)
10.88 Propel (DS drinks these almost every day - better than energy drink IMO)
24.87 40QT cooler (I have been wanting a smaller cooler that we can use for our summer picnics and I thought I had a $10.00 MIR for any cooler from Budweiser but I realized it expired 2/1/09 so this may go back until I can find a better deal)

Today 2/12/09:
Shop n Save they are having their $10.00 off when you spend $50.00 but I went in with no real plan (big mistake) Normally I stick right to that $50.00 or split into 2 $50.00 to maximize the deal but I was tired and didn't bring my calculator. I purchase a 100.00 GC for $90.00 (Q in the Entertainment Book) because I needed to start using up those coupons and this seems to be a month that I may have extra money.
3.39 Kashi Honey Seasame Crackers -3.39 Q

1.94 x2 Uncle Bens Ready Rice -1.00/2
2.99 x2 Tyson Chicken & Steak Ready strips - .55 x 2

3.28 x 2 Coffee Mate -1.50 x2 (coupons expired tomorrow so I had to use them)
5.00 Culinary Circle Sausage Pizza
1.25 Dr Pepper 2 L - 1.25Q WYB above Pizza
5.39 Tyson Honey Tenders -1.00Q (DS has been bugging me for these)
1.74 x 6 PopTarts 12 pack -1.00/2 x 3 (another DS request)
1.34 R&F Spaghetti 2lb package
2.50 x5 Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks -1.50/5 RR from a couple of weeks ago
75.84 (see I went way over -10.00 final total 38.77 Not to bad I guess. Used gift card from last May.
Plus I got a $3.00 RR and .03 off my next gas purchase.

Running total for the month
$480.18 -$20.31 -$43.62 -$30.56 - $90.00 = $295.69

I have already been checking out next weeks ads and I don't see much.
I know I still have to buy the FAR items from Walgreens and I have been picking up a couple of razors this week to get the $6.00 RR. Price w/ tax 5.34 on WAG GC.
I also had a Tupperware party so I am sure I will be spending more than I should there but they had some great deals.
