Frugal Days

Since my job will probably be ending in December, I realized I needed to go back to my thrifty ways. I usually am pretty careful about what I buy, but with the start of the school year, I got a little off track. This week I went through all my ads and yesterday I made a trip to Walgreens. I bought:

2 razors
2 boxes of crackers
2 dry skin cream jars
1 bottle of lotion - my skin becomes very dry in fall and winter and since I'm allergic to a lot of different lotions, I'm picky about brands
1 bag of candy
hamburger rolls
The total came to $28 before tax, but then I received $25 back in register rewards. The register rewards can be used to buy other things from Walgreens. I was pretty pleased with the results of my trip!
Two websites I visit a lot are Money Saving Mom (http://www.moneysavingmom.com) and The Grocery Game (http://www.grocerygame.com
