$4.12 OUT OF POCKET FOR ALL OF THIS! WOOT!

TODAY WE ARE GOING TO TALK LIKE 'DIS!!! lol!
Okay I like to play moron here and there.. so check it out!!



Okay I guess for all you double dippers out there who like to say I spent xx on GC and then $4.12 from my purse and then got back a $5 RR so really I made 88 cents.. but I don't look at it like that.. I look at it like my next trip will be $5 less.. so today OOP was $4.12

Two stores..

Walgreens
3 Bertolli dinners used 2 $1.75 Bertolli coupons
9 pizza breads 44 cents each on clearance
2 pizza fries $1.79 on clearance
1 B/B lipsmacker (I had grabbed 2 but somehow only paid for one) used $1 coupon which she let go through.. not sure how it was a $1/2)
1 Scrubbing Bubbles refill $3.79 used $1 coupon and will apply for $1.50 ESR

Total $25.25, $25.18 on GC and 7 cents from my purse. Received $5 RR for the Bertolli dinners and will get back $1.50 ESR.

not bad for 7 cents huh? oh and they wouldn't let me do the no nonsense sock deal with the packs of socks.. they said it was for "singles" only. whatevs!

***OMG I JUST POSTED THIS, WENT ON I ♥ WAGS AND OF COURSE THERE IS A $5/$25 COUPON TOMORROW AND SATURDAY!!! DOH!!*****

Jewel
2 gallons of skim milk $1.99 each

Total OOP with tax $4.05



MY "made from the stockpile" lunch from yesterday/today



2 chicken breasts I got for 99 cents a lb
1 can of kidney beans from Aldi 54 cents
1 can of diced tomatoes from Aldi 54 cents
green/red peppers I got for 99 cents a lb and had chopped and froze
onion I got on clearance for 79 cents for 3lbs
grilled summer squash I had cut up and frozen because I couldn't finish it
red pepper flakes
chili powder
parsley cube


I wanted to make chili but didn't want to use my ground beef.. so I used chicken instead..I HAVE SOO MUCH OF IT!! it came out sooo yummy and filling. It was nice because yesterday was such a cold/rainy day here in Chicago... it was nice to have something warm. I was thinking I could do this same recipe with different beans, seriously anything would work, and no chicken breasts. That way I could have meatless meals with plenty of protein! You could always add a little shredded cheese on top or even a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.. booo yahhh!! yummooooo

I know what you mean about "double dippers." I make sure to only count rewards once, but I do it the opposite -- when I earn ExtraBucks, I subtract that from the purchase price, but when I spend them, I just say I spent X. Except, you know, I do like to keep track of my OOP to make sure I'm mostly just turning over ECBs and not spending much.
