A Nice Surprise at Safeway

April 16th, 2008 at 05:29 pm

I was in Safeway today and purchased some living right products.

3 pkg of Charmin tp 12 rolls ea 6.49ea
1 loak of pepperidge farm bread 3.79ea
(4 bags of jelly beans for 2.35)

= 25.61

The total was enough to earn a $10 coupon toward my next purchase. To my surprise I also got a $5 coupon off any gift card. So, I asked if I could use it on a Safeway gift card and they said yes. When I asked about the minimum amount I was told anything over $5, so I bought one for $6.

25.61 - 10 - 5 = 10.61

Then it was on to lunch at Chevy's restaurant. I used a restaurant.com gift certificate $5 for a $25. With 4 people it was easy to spend the $35 required, the check was 35.95. It was a gorgeous day so we ate outside on the terrace. So lunch cost 5 + 11 + tip for 4 people. I left with enough food for 3 more meals.

I now have enough TP for one person for a year. Enough shampoo, body wash/soap, razors, toothpaste, bathroom/kitchen cleaner, and deodorant to last me about 2 years.

I've been working on my new budget, once I move and since I have no debt and an adequate emergancy fund I am going to put 1/3 of my income after fica into my 403b retirement fund. I've also budgeted $2000 for vacation. But I will have to stick to my plan or my vacation money will be blown. That should be a big incentive. Next summer, I want to go to Europe. If the exchange rates stay the same I might end up in Eastern Europe; like Hungary, Romania or Bulgaria. They are beautiful also and full of history. I love the mountains and they have plenty.

    We had a Safeway in the small town we lived in growing up, but they moved out of my area a long time ago. This was back in the day when they used mechanical registers with buttons and a lever. Smile
