Today Ashley and I were chatting about the day we tried to “EXTREME COUPON SHOPPING”. Yes, we watched some show quite a few years ago and decided we that was our calling. lol
So first we prepped for it, cutting coupons for about a month, buying multiple Sunday papers because they had all the coupons. Then we they went on line to get more coupons. We found the only Kroger about 45 minutes away that would double coupons up to a $1. We we planned out our strategy. They had all the isles lined up with what coupons they needed. They had multiple people on board to buy stuff due to limit one per person.( I was one of those people along for the challenge).
So off we went. We cruised thru the store all pushing carts. LAUGHING ALONG THE WAY. We had 3 plus cart loads. LOVING ALL OUR BARGAINS. But some highlights along the way………
1. We ended up with over 100 boxes of noodles ( the tri – color) noodles FREE!!! YES FREE!!! but who honestly needs 100 boxes, what the hell were we thinking?????
2. EASILY OVER 40 TUBES OF TOOTHPASTE. EMPTIED OUT THE WHOLE SHELF. We felt like that was a score, because everyone brushes their teeth. And those were FREE ALSO.
3. A bunch of hamburger helper, kids like it a little bit , but not 15 boxes worth.
4. THE MAIN HIGHLIGHT AND FUNNIEST THING THAT WENT DOWN. RIGHT BEFORE WE WENT TO CHECK OUT WE COULDNT FIND THE COUPONS!!!!! NO JOKE!!! STIN HAD LEFT THE WHOLE BOX ON A SHELF. TO THIS DAY IT MAKES ME DIE LAUGHING THINKING ABOUT THE PANIC MODE THAT SET IN.
5. LAST HIGHLIGHT WAS CHECKING OUT……..WE BROKE THE REGISTER. YES, THE LADY AND KROGER CREW ALL WATCHED AND ADMIRED HOW ORGANIZED WE WERE WITH OUR PURCHASES.
BOTTOM LINE. WE GOT TONS OF STUFF, DONATED A BUNCH, ATE A BUNCH OF NOODLES, AND HAD CLEAN TEETH FOR A LONG TIME. WORTH THE FUN, AND MEMORY MADE.
AND NOW I’M SO BAD, I USE MY KROGER CARD AND THATS STRICTLY FOR THE GAS REWARDS, WHICH ALL CASTLE MEMBERS USE, SO AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MONTH , YOU MIGHT SAVE ON GAS OR ANOTHER MEMBER MIGHT HAVE BEAT YOU TO THE SAVINGS.
Today the blondes are over hanging out, my main mate and I are going to dinner and movies ( wait, is this a date???) Or are we just escaping castle members and the castle volume at max????
THIS IS HOW THE GRANDSONS TRAVEL WHILE AT GRANNYS, WHEN UNCLE CARTER IS IN CHARGE. LOL, CARTER MADE THE COOLEST CONTRAPTION TO PULL HIS FISHING KAYAK TO OTHER LOCAL LAKES. ITS BEING PULLED BY HIS BIKE. VERY SWEET !!
NO IT WAS NOT DANGEROUS, I WAS ACTUALLY WALKING ALONG THE SIDE OF JACE. AND HE THOUGHT HE WAS THE KING!!!
IT REALLY SUCKS PUTTING AWAY ALL THE FUN SUMMER TOYS, BUT ON TO THE NEXT FUN SEASON.
HAPPY SEXY SATURDAY……HEADING TO MY “DATE” HOPE IT GOES WELL LOL
until tomorrow…..xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo good nite to all
