I offered to take The Girl Who Thinks She’s A Bird and her friend the mathematician to the Renaissance Fair on Sunday. Let’s just say I won’t be doing that again anytime soon. Having never been to a Renaissance Fair I didn’t know what to expect… and to be totally honest… I didn’t even have time to think about it or what it would entail… So when we (The Girl) drove (because I was clipping coupons in the back seat of the car) into the parking lot/cow pasture and it was filled with tents and old rusty campers circa 1970… I was a little freaked out.
#1 I am not a camper. #2 I’ve been told I’m a VERY action oriented person… And so wandering around having to look at Medieval crap for an hour in a cow pasture and avoiding the concession stands like the plague…
Is not something that will make it to my top 100 things I want to do again list anytime soon. Call me a snob… call me a clean freak… call what ever you want… just don’t call me and invite me to a renaissance fair.
Garden fresh green and purple beans from the garden. Yummo!
15 zucchini and our first small basket of tomatoes. We also harvested another basket of beans and a few raspberries but we forgot to take a picture. 🙁
On Thursday I went in to place my order for this weeks round of double coupons at Albertsons and decided to see if the extra $2 Hamburger Helper cat was printing. I’m glad I checked ahead of time! I typically have all my transactions planned out and ready to go before I walk into the store on double coupon days. I needed to figure out how to make the best use of my catalinas so I could roll them into the next transaction. I paid $8.00 oop and got back $7 in catalina coupons and the $7 in catalina coupons were the perfect starting point for my double coupon shopping.
50 boxes of Hamburger Helper, 32 cans Progresso Soup, 8 Dryers ice cream, 6 V-8 Tea, 5 loaves of bread, 4 boxes Cheerios, 4 boxes Cocoa Puffs, 2 Sara Lee Pound Cakes, 2 Jamba Juice Smoothies, 2 Apple Juice, 3 packages tortillas, 2 Starkist tuna, 2 Tree Top juice boxes, 2 bananas and 1 Activia Greek yogurt. I had 16 transactions and the key to this shopping trip was rolling my catalinas. I was especially excited about this weeks Hamburger Helper money maker. It appears I’m baaaaack! 🙂
Albertsons Double Coupon Shopping $10.08. Holy Cow Batman!
Total spent this week: $24.30
Total spent year to date: $896.58
