    Today's Dollar Tree Trip

    My last trip for this week was the Dollar Tree.  They had some white plates out (which is what I'm getting for the kitchen, very BH&G!  I'm selling my old green fruit set), and I needed the vicks, so I grabbed a few things while Joe and I were there.  Here's what we ended up with...
    2 Vapor Chest Rubs (Vick's)
    4 White Mugs
    3 White Plates (going back tomorrow for another one - oops!)
    1 Medical Tape (for Joe's Toe)
    2 pkgs Slivered Almonds (buying ahead for holiday baking - these are nice and safe in the freezer until then)
    1-2 pk Tennis Balls (for Joe's grandfather's dog for Christmas)
    + $0.48 Tax
    Total OOP: $13.48!

    Small Big Lots Trip this Week!

    Joe had toe surgery on Thursday, so while I waited, I perused the aisles of Big Lots.  I was hoping to get a few Christmas presents bought, but nothing really struck my fancy, so I just got some all-natural cleaners instead...
    3 All-Natural Multi-purpose Spray Cleaners $1.20 ea = 3/$3.60
    + $0.22 Tax
    Total OOP: $3.82!

    Amish Market Trip 11/03/2011!

    Thursday Joe and I had to stop down to Joe's grandfather's house for something, and since it was Thursday and the Amish market was open, we stopped in to see if they had the natural/unrefined sugar, and they did, so we stocked up!  Here's what we ended up with...
    4-5 lb bags Unrefined/natural Sugar $7.53 + $7.83 + $7.88 + $7.83 = over 20lbs for $31.07 (about $1.55 a lb)
    1 pkg Mini Cinnamon Chips (the only place I was going to be able to get these from for a recipe I wanted to try was on Amazon, so I was glad to not have to pay shipping for them, and they are a cheaper price as well!) $3.46!
    Total OOP: $34.53!

    BJ's Trip This Week

    I also stopped into BJ's earlier this week to use a couple coupons that were about to expire.  Here's what I got...
    1 Tostitos Salsa $5.49 - $1.75/1 BJ's Coupon = $3.74
    2 McCormick Seasonings (Taco and Chili) $5.49 and $6.29 - $3/2 BJ's Coupon = 2/$8.78 or $4.39 ea
    Total OOP: $12.52!

    Rite-Aid Trip from Earlier this Week!

    Monday I stopped into Rite-Aid to use the $8/2 Cover Girl coupons that expired 10/31, and I was able to combine them with a sale, an UP+Reward deal, and a MIR for some FREE make-up!!!!  Here's how it went down...
    8 various Cover Girl Face Powders $7.99 ea - $4 x 4 (BOGO 50% off Sale) - $8/2 MC x 4 = 8/$15.92
    1-2 pk Olay Bar Soap $3.99 - $0.80 card discount = $3.19 
    2 bottles Herbal Essences Shampoo $4.49 ea - $1.50 ea Sale - $1/1 MC x 2 - $1 UP+Rewards x 2 = 2/$1.98
    + $3.44 Tax
    - $2 UP+Rewards used to Pay
    Total OOP: $24.53 - $15 and $2 UP+Rewards Earned and $10 P&G MIR = ALL FREE + $2.47 Money-Maker!!!!!
