I rocked Walmart and Target today...


13 Glade candle tins.  SEVENTEEN CENTS EACH.  They are not sealed so you can open them in the store, and in some of them, there are $1.50 coupons.  They are on sale at Target for $1.67 (not marked at mine, but they scan at that price), so I opened every single one they had on the shelf and bought all of them that had coupons in them (using the coupons, of course), haha.  They didn't have many on the shelf, I only left probably six...  hopefully they restock soon!! :o) ...but seriously, $2.21 for 13 of those candles!!  They are normally priced at $2.99 each!!  Aweeeesome deal.

All kinds of behind on posting my DEALS.  :o)  I keep thinking about starting a new blog just for that so it's not all mixed in here.  Perhaps I will...start with todays trip if I get time later to figure out how to start one... but for now, backdated trips (since my camera started working better again, phew), here we goooooooooooooooo...

Walgreens 6/5:


I messed up HORRIBLY.  I let a $5 register reward EXPIRE.  I almost said just put everything back, LOL.  Actually, I did say that, but then I said oh what the heck.  I was paying with a gift card I'd won from Coke anyway.
Anyway, I got 2 boxes of Kleenex, each were .55 on clearance.  The Dawn was free after a $1 coupon and the store coupon that made it .99.  The Ecotrin was $2 and I had a $2 coupon, so that was free.  The Kerasal was $7.99, and I had a $1 coupon... total was like $8.50, and I got back $9 in RR (5, 2, and 2)...  One box of Ecotrin, I had hubby buy so I could get another RR :o)  He just got in line behind me, and that was all he bought, lol...he got the $0.00 total and got the $2 RR.  Sweet :o)  I was so mad at myself about that $5, since then my total would have been like 3.50 instead...but oh well.

CVS 6/5:


Paid .48 after using coupons and some ECBs (picture is blurry, but I think it says a $3.99 and a $2) and I got back 2 $4 ECBs.  Not shabby. 

Kmart DOUBLES 6/8:


3 boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch (I wanted to "Win CASH!" lol...but I did not.) 
They were $2/box, I used a $1/3 coupon...so 3 boxes for $4.
Hershey 100 Cal bars...  .99 after a $1 doubled coupon.


3 packs of Pull Ups.  9.99 each, minus 3 $2 coupons doubled to $4... 5.99/pack.
(I bought 2 packs of the WRONG size too, ugh..Ava's too big for 2-3T and they barely even fit Charlotte)
Clean and Clear - .49 
Act - .49
St Ives - .69
MAC eyeshadow - free
3 NYC glosses - free


Pert Plus - .49 (and I will get back $3.49 from their Try Me Free rebate!)
3 Axe shampoos, .99 each (and buying 3 got my a free movie ticket!)
Lysol Neutra Air...I want to say it was .29
3 Sani Hands wipes - .49/each
Electrasol - $1.79 after coupon
Huggies wipes - free

Earned a $3 off your next order coupon,
and the Free Movie Ticket from Axe. 

Spent like $30, but that was the Pull Ups doing...blech! LOL...saved almost $70 in coupons


Weis - 6/12:

Hit the diaper sale jackpot!


Luvs - 3.99/pack!! (6)
Pull Ups - 5.49/pack
Easy Ups - 5.49

I had no coupons for the Luvs, but 3.99 is a goooood deal so got them... 
I had a $5 coupon for Pull ups, a $4, and two $3...so one pack for .49, another for $1.49, and two for $2.49.
I had a $1 coupon for the Easy Ups, so they were $4.49...

Total for all of them, $35.39...  average it out and that makes them $3.22/pack! 

Kohls - 6/12:

I had $10 Kohl's cash that was expiring (special promotion at the store near us b/c they were remodeling)


4 shirts (yes, we like pink!), all for $3.60 after the Kohl's cash. 

CVS 6/12:


1 Gilette Fusion razor...  $7.99, minus $4 coupon, and $3.99 ECB...  total owed, nothiiiiing!  $0.00, lol.  Earned $4 ECB.  Also printed out a $5 off $15 coupon on my reciept...so since I needed my Revlon makeup I went back in, lol. 


4 cans of Campbells soup, I had a raincheck so they were 2 for $1... also had two $1 off 2 coupons, so they were all free, lol.
2 Revlon foundations, 13.29, b1g1.  I also had a $2 CVS coupon for it...  I was mad I didn't have any mfg coupons, lol...but oh well. 

So since the total before coupons was over $15, I could use the $5/15, then the $2 CVS Revlon coupon, then the 2 $1 soup coupons, and I used 2 ECBS...a $4 and a $2... total I paid for everything was .29!  Scoooore on the makeup, lol.  Too bad they weren't producing ECBs, haha..but I can't really complain.

Walgreens 6/12:


2 Reach toothbrushes, on sale for .99, used a $1.50 off 2 Reach products coupon, made them .28 each. 

Purex detergent/softener sheets...  $4.99, after a $1 coupon. 

M&Ms as a filler so I could use my $5 RR...not sure what I had to get them, but it wasn't accepting my RR at checkout so I just grabbed them and said try it after ringing those up and it worked... so...  after using that $5 I paid $1.33, and got back $2. 

I will also get back $5.99 from Purex because they have a rebate offer for those sheets!!  :o)

I used a $5/50 coupon, and I had the $3 store coupon from the last trip, but they wouldn't let me use them both...and this order printed me a $7 coupon!!  Sooooo, I went back in, lol

lol, so today Ava was eating her second lunch (yeah, lol) and she made a mess on the table.  She said "Look mommy, I got my sour cream ALL OVER the table!"  I asked her why she did that and she replied "Um.  Because I don't like you."  Stifling giggles I asked why she didn't like me and says "I do!  I do like you!"  All I could say was "well, good... 'cause I like you."  She's funny.
The other day she was eating dinner and she had asked for an ice cream cone, I said sure if she finished her dinner.  She asked for seconds and I gave them to her, but she hadn't eaten her noodles at all yet.  Now, I don't really expect her to always finish her plate, but if she's hungry enough for ice cream, and she asked for seconds of one thing, and I *know* she likes what's on her plate, I do expect her to at least take a few bites, so after she kept begging for the ice cream I just said "Not until I don't see anymore noodles on your plate."  And she said "okay."  A few minutes later she asks for ice cream and says "There not anyyyy more noodles on my plate."  I go to look and she's right...'cause she scooted them all off on to the table.  @@ LOL

Ava:  ::chewing on a care bear fruit snack::
          I can't eat Care Bears!
          ::looks at the fruit snack pack::
          I sorry I eat you.
          ::kisses bear on the pack::
          I so sorry I eat you.

LOL...she was really concerned. 

Playing dress up, she comes up to me wearing a play stethoscope.

Me:  Are you a doctor??
Ava:  Yes.  I'm a doctor.
         A REAL doctor.
         But... not a REALLY real doctor.

Ava-ism's today...
"Mommy, say Lola Charlie into this."  ::hands me a toy she was pretending was a microphone::

"Looooollaaaaa Chaaaaarliiiiieeeeee"
"Hahahha.  That's a good one mommy."  ::walks off chuckling at me:: ??? lol
"Are you guys hungry for lunch?"
"Yeah, lunch!"
After a quick look in the fridge I decide to pull out some lunchables I had picked up.
"Oh wow!  You read my mind!"  after seeing the lunchable on the table. 
At the moment, they are running around and wearing a watch... Ava wears it, and says "What time is it?  and Charlotte says "4:30!"  err, "fo thuty" or something like that :o) Then Ava puts the watch on Charlotte and they repeat.  It's been fo thuty for probably several hours now, lol.

Haha...  Ava just said "Mommy, I don't like Olivia the Pig.  I wanna watch something else."

"Oh you do, huh?  Something else like what?"

"Something else like Spongebob.  Something else like Squarepants."

She's not picking up my sarcasm at allllllll is she?  :o)  Mind you this wasn't mean sarcasm...just joking and in a nice tone.  She cracks me up.

Hit up the Kmart doubles today.  My mom watched the girls so I could just take my time and I was in there for probably two hours, lol.  I took my binder in with me and just walked up and down every aisle that had stuff I might have a coupon for. 

I shouldn't have waited until today because they were out of stock on a bunch of stuff, some I really wanted...bummer, but oh well.

Also, my mom printed me the $5 off $50 coupon they have, but she printed me the wrong date and I didn't realize until I was already all rung up at check out :o(  My total (including tax) came to $10.25 without that $5 coupon (I forget what before coupons...$61-66, somewhere around there...so I saved $50 at least with my coupons), and my mom knows the manager there because Eddie used to work there so she kept my reciept and she is going to go in to talk to her and see if she will still give me the $5 off, lol.  So, assuming that I get that, I will have paid $5.25 for everything.

Suave lotion (big bottle) - $1.19 after doubled coupon
2 Clean and Clear face wash - .49 each (after double coupon...just assume that for the rest, lol)
2 Sure deodorant - .49 each
3 Huggies wipes - free
Hormel Compleats meal - free
Listerine pocket pack - free
flower nail decals - .29 (I thought Ava would get a kcik out of them)
Windex - .50 (I forget exactly, but something close to .50)
Gilette shave cream - free
Carefree liners - free
2 NYC roller lipglosses - free (for the girls)
Jane minerals lipgloss - free
Apple Jacks - .50
2 Halls cough drops - free
Crunch n Clean cat treats - free
4 Pringles - .50 each
Dove shampoo and conditioner - .99 each

Also bought ketchup for my mom because she called while I was in the store... so 28 items for $10.25 = roughly .37 per item.  Still not shabby even without the 5 coupon mishap...  geez with that coupon it would have been .19 per item, haha...

This morning:  Charlotte wakes up, goes into Ava's room,
Charlotte:  Why?
Ava: I don't want you in here!
Charlotte:  Why?  Why? 
Charlotte was sitting on our bed after leaving Ava's room,  she's babbling, asks me for some lotion (I keep a bottle on my bedside table) and then says something about a happy bird??  LOL
Ava:  Mommy!  Charlotte's hitting me with a shovel!
Me:  Charlotte!  Don't hit your sister with a shovel.   
Charlotte looks at me puzzled and then proceeds to start "hitting" herself in the head with the shovel instead.

I said I needed a tissue and Charlotte starts running to the bathroom, she comes back with the teeniest tiniest square of toilet paper and proudly hands it to me.  It was like a corner smaller than the tip of her finger, hahaha.  :o)

Charlotte has taken to role playing using the potty...she will sit on something (most recently Ava's play laptop) and go "Ooooooh!" and get up and say "Done!"  ??? lol.  She sits on the actual potty at random throughout the day but she hasn't actually used it yet.

My mom told me to enter this thing.  So I did, just clicked on a random picture in the first folder I opened.  lol, it's Charlotte. 

But apparently if 50 people vote for it, I'll get a $25 gift card.  Sweet :o)  So, go vote if you're bored.

Tell your friends to vote. Copy and paste this link and send it to them: vote for Charlotte. Remind them to vote often.
Get 50 voters, and get a $25 VISA gift card from us!!

Ahhh, Ava lately...
The other day, I am in the family room, Ava is in the kitchen.  I hear rustling. 
Me: Ava, what are you doing?
Ava:  Nothing, mommy. 
::rustle, rustle::
Me: Avaaaaa, what are you doing?
Ava: I told you, nothing mommy!
Me:  Ava.  What are you doing?
Ava:  ::sigh:: I *already* TOLD you, mommy!  NOTHING!
Apparently she went from 2 to 14 and I somehow missed it.  Preschooler's got attitude!  lol
She took a basket of toys into the bathroom the other day and shut the door.  When I asked her why she was in the bathroom she yelled out the door "I'm NOT SHARING WITH CHARLOTTE, that's why I in the bathroom." 
At dinner today, we had kid songs playing.  Something came on and I said "Ooh!  Laurie Berkner!" and Ava said "Yes, that's Laurie Berkner.  You are certainly correct mommy." 
Bathtime today, she gets undressed, stands on her stepstool, back facing me and says "See my little tushie, mommy?" and starts shaking her rump. 
In the bath--Charlotte wants to play with some of the ducks and Ava said "No you can't have these ducks.  That's not acceptable, Charlotte."  ROFL.
Just now, Mike was putting one of her baby dolls in the toybox and she shook her finger at him and said "Nonononono, I need that."  lol.
She cracks me up.  Earlier today... she CRIED because Mike told her she was a big girl.  "NOOOOO, I NOT A BIG GIRL!"  ??? lol

Charlotte is starting to "count."  She says "One.  Three."  LOL.  You can't convince her there is a TWO.  She shakes her head and says "THREE," lol.  She is really in to hide and seek lately...  she says "One, three, table!" and goes to hide under the table, lol.  Then she'll say "Ready, go!"

Ava just looked out the window, and shouted (girly squealy shouting) "Look, look!  Mommy!!!  LOOK!  It's snowing!  It's snowing!  WOOHOO!!  I'm so glad it's snowing!" 


I just finished mopping the downstairs and now I'm about to mix up some banana bread and start dinner...but I had to hop on and save that little memory.
