Getting Closer

May 12th, 2008 at 05:02 pm

I met with my ex on Sunday, Mother's Day, to sign an agreement for the house settlement. He said he would settle on the 22nd and then the funds would be released 3 days later. I have one day after the funds are released to move out. The apartment I am going to move into is taking shape, but I don't think it will be ready in/on time. I have a place to store my things but it is a pain to move twice. After signing the agreement, I went to RiteAid for the FAR item. While there I saw some empty cardboard boxes and asked the manager if I could have them. She very kindly said "Yes." I went home and packed them up. I dropped them off at my brother's. Its good to recyle and also not have to pay for boxes. It rained 6.32 inches in 24 hours in my city. So no free boxes today, maybe tomorrow as it dries up.

On my way to mom's for dinner, I stopped at CVS with a plan. I purchased $30.90 worth of items:

(2) Glade Airspray .97ea
(3) Colgate TP 2.99 ea
(1) Schick Int. Rzr 9.99
(1) Blood Sugar Mtr 10
= 30.90

Manuf 17.97
Ecb 7.58
5/25 5.00
= .85 oop + 22 ECB earned

I am finally getting the hang of the system. Yeah!

Dinner was really nice! We also celebrated my mom, brother and nephews' birthdays.

I've been showing the teacher I work with the deals I've been getting and in some cases I will give her my extra coupon's to make the deal for herself. She is loving it. She got $20 worth of razors for .02+tax. Lord, I will miss her when she moves.

    Where did you find the 5/25? Was it a CRT?

    It printed out with my receipt for a past purchase. At this point I seem to get them with all purchases, but I have never used one because I never seem to spend $25. Now that I am using them I probably won't get anymore.LOL

    I have not recieved one of those in a long time! I use them any chance I get. It really helps to roll the ECB. You're doing a great job "CVSing."

    I assume you had a man. coup. for the glucose monitor...did you find it in the Sunday paper?

    Oh', I wanted to tell you about Hotcouponworld.com if you don't already know. ALOT of information on there. When you have plenty of time log on and settle in. You will be there awhile. Great site for saving the moola!

    Yes, I had the manfQ for the monitor. The 10 Q made the monitor $0 with 10ecb's earned. In the Washington Post insert it showed the 10-10=10ecb earned idea so I had no problem using the MQ. Others in other parts of the country did. Plus, I don't think my county had alot of people are CVSing to the extent I am trying to. I will definitely look into Hotcouponworld.com. Thanks!
