I'm feeling rather festive tonight... Christmas music is playing, the trees are lit, tea is brewing (I love Celestial Seasonings Christmas teas :-) ), candles are burning, it's icy and cold outside, and I'm happy to be indoors. Here's the result of this week's trip to Walgreens:
My total came to $20.68. (The receipt proclaimed savings was $39.70, but I always tend to think those numbers are inflated... :-) ) I paid with my Walgreens gift card (result of past months' EasySaver rebates), received a $10 Catalina, and should get $10.45 in EasySaver rebates as a result of my purchases (includes 10% gift card bonus), so my effective total spent is $0.23. I could have done better, but with Christmas coming up, I'm okay with spending a bit more.
Since I bought very few groceries this week, I almost didn't post a picture. But, should anyone be curious, here's what I picked up at Kroger and our local produce market:
The apples were $1.99 for a three pound bag, BOGO, so I picked up two bags. Limes were clearanced to $.79 a bag, and the tomatoes to $2.49. My total at the market was $5.64. At Kroger, the sour cream was on sale (though not an amazing one) and I had coupons, making them $.79 each, and I rolled the yeast deal one more time with a coupon a friend gave me. My favorite find at Kroger was the raspberries--on manager's special at $1.00 per box. I love fresh raspberries, but the price is usually insane, so I skip them. I used three yeast Catalinas when I paid, bringing my total to $2.75. I also received another $.50 Catalina on the yeast, which will double to $1.00 on my next order.

I'm off to enjoy my cup of tea and get some things in order (hello, dirty dishes... :-) ). Hope you have a restful Sunday and stay warm!
