Life in My Land. And hey, I found out about a week and a half ago that I'd won =D!!!
I got back from the doctor's with the kiddos yesterday to find a very pleasant surprise shoved into my door courtesy of Fed Ex. My giftcard was here!
Since I needed milk (badly), I asked my husband if we could go to Wal-Mart last night and see how far I could make the 25.00 stretch for us. He agreed and off we went.
What I got for 25.00 is above (and yes you bet I'm happy with it :). The milk is missing because my husband was drinking it at the time, so imagine that stuck in the picture too would you?
The highlights of my trip?
Fresh Ginger: 1.28 for all you see above. The cashier stuck in the wrong code or something when he was ringing it up and it comes up on my receipt as bananas. I didn't catch it until I got home and no I am not going back to debate the issue with Wal-Mart.
T-Shirts for my son 1.00 a piece on clearance (woot!)
Jeans for my son 2.00 on clearance (double woot!)
Jeans for my daughter marked 3.00, but rang up 1.00 on clearance (I can't woot enough there ;).
The rootbeer concentrate was 3.00 and some change after a 1.00/1 coupon my mom sent me from a tearpad she got somewhere for 1.00/1 McCormick flavored extract. I'm hoping I used it legally after the fact since this stuff is actually rootbeer CONCENTRATE not extract, but it scanned okay.
I was going to try and use the giftcard to pick up some frozen ground turkey, but I found that the price on those things had jumped up to 2.78 per 1 lb tube and I can get better deals than that at Carrs when I find ground chicken and turkey on reduced, so I let that one slide. I did pick up a corned beef though because Wal-Mart is still the cheapest place in town to pick up those (2.78 lb or something like that). The corned beef cost me 4.67 for it and that'll be a nice meal. And yes, it's certified gluten free as is the root beer concentrate (I was so proud of myself that I remembered to check that ;).
So, yeah, I thought I did pretty good for 25.00 (the milk was Wal-Mart brand by the way...I just went cheap this time around).
What am I going to do with root beer concentrate, seltzer water and fresh ginger? Well you're going to have to stay tuned to find all of that out ;).
Hope your shopping adventures are going well this week too!
