Walgreens Trip 8/6 & 8/10 & Nesquik Shakers

Well, last Friday, Adam took the two boy with him to his brother's house to help him install some new windows. I was left with the two girls- for the first time! We ended up making a quick trip into Walgreens and I found a great deal- Pull ups and size 7 diapers (the boys don't care if they end up wearing diapers instead of pull ups to bed, we have just told them sorry we ran out of pull ups and this is all we have and the really don't mind) on clearance for less than $3 plus I had coupons!!

This week at Walgreens I was able to get some great deals!

Have $9 RR to use next week!

Wow!! did not realize I got so much stuff! I knew I hardly spent any money each time, but didn't realize I spent less than $60 these past two weeks. I got tons of stuff that we were really going to be needing too!

62 items worth $359.18 for $59.32 + $9 RR + 1 Free 18ct Playtex RR (this is what I have left over- received $45 worth from all these transacions, but used them to buy all the extra stuff- like wipes, pull ups, diapers, need lots of those & ziploc bags to freeze all of our garden stuff!) - sounds like a great deal to me!! That comes out to $.95 an item! Can't beat that! Especially with all those wipes, which we will use up very fast, and all the freezer bags so I can freeze all of the garden stuff.

Things are getting done- will be freezing all of our onions and most of our potatoes this weekend and maybe some sweet corn. We are going to freeze alot of our potatoes as mashed potatoes and freeze the rest as meals like: stew, potato cheese soup, and chicken pot pie. Will probbly wait to make the meals next week when I can pull up some of our carrots.

Will get a picture up soon, but we have already broken in and used alot of this stuff and distributed lots of stuff (wipes) to each of the cars and diaper bags and main rooms in our house Don't think I want to go and round up all the stuff again!
