I spent more time sleeping in and going to garage sales this week than grocery shopping.
As you might have guessed… this was a slow week for Miss Mavis. Besides harvesting fresh strawberries, peas, raspberries and swiss chard from our garden I also picked up:
9 boxes of brownies, 1 gallon of milk (free w/catalina) 1 package of Twizzlers (The teenagers are saving those for the upcoming Harry Potter movie) 1 (free) can of corn, 3 (free) doughnuts and 4 boxes of Nature Valley Granola Bars from Albertsons on the last day of the sale for $9.64 (I also earned $7 in catalina coupons thanks to the Nature Valley Granola Bars).
On July 4th I picked up whipping cream & Jello-pudding (for my strawberry cake) and a free 4 pack of tropical fruit (thanks to the Albertsons Summer Sizzlin’ Sweepstakes) for $6.28
8 ears of corn for $2.00 at QFC
1 gallon of milk, 1 head of iceberg lettuce, 1 loaf of bread , 1 lemon, 2 banana’s (missing from the photo) and 1 large packet of green bean seeds for $2.53 (I used my $7 in catalina coupons from the Nature Valley Deal).
While the monkeys were at the dentist I popped over to P.F.Chang’s and picked up a FREE ORDER of lettuce wraps (and paid $2.75 for a strawberry lemonade).
Monkey Boy paid .50 for a glass of lemonade and 1 Rice Krispie Treat from a concession stand at a neighborhood garage sale.
I paid $1.00 for 4 Otter Pops (and take a look at the awesome robes from Morocco I picked up at the garage sale for only $5! I’m sure you’re all terribly disappointed you didn’t get in on that deal! But hey… YOU SNOOZE YOU LOSE! If you’re wondering why I look like a linebacker… It’s because I also picked up a really nice white down jacket for $7… which according to this photo I was still wearing at about 2 in the afternoon in 80 degree weather. Geez… no wonder I thought .25 cents for Otter Pops was such a great deal… I was obviously suffering from the side effects of sun stroke! Ah Hahaha! Actually I scored a TON of great bargains over the weekend… And I’ll be posting them tomorrow. 🙂
Total spent this week $24.70
Total spent year to date $690.45
How did YOU? Did you find anything you just HAD TO HAVE?
