Well, this week went tolerably well I guess.  LOL.  I have no $$ to grocery shop.  It’ll be a lot of bartering this week.  We’ll see what I can do.  Earlier this week I did sell $10 worth of extra product around the house so I got some chicken at the grocery store $3.71 and I did buy 6 more boxes of Rice Crispies.   There is a deal at our local Stater Bros  buy 6 of one item and it makes each Rice Crispie box $1.49 + there are peelies on the boxes wyb 2 boxes you get a free thing of marshmallows! I ended up with 12 boxes of rice crispies and 12 boxes of corn flakes for a profit! of $2.24.   I used the $2.25/3 coupon from SS insert 7/17 (some area’s got $5/5) and submitted it for the $10 gas card rebate!

Hey! This was the FIRST time I got PAID to buy cereal! And its GF! WOOT!   So I spent this week’s $$ on it.  We do have pantry items.  I would need some fresh veggies though.  So it will be interesting to see what I can come up with.   Tonight was BLT.  Yummy.
So week 4 $25 budget-  Spent $62.14.
This included;
a trip to Farmers Market where I also bought a local church couple some produce $10.25 and some for us $6.50
$17.76 for cereal
$23.92 for 8 packages of Farmer John Bacon and 8 packages of Farmer JOhn Sausage  (like paying $1.49 per package! Great price for me)
Chicken at Albertsons $3.71
Total $62.14 (I think the $2.14 came from hubby or something??? I know I raided his pocket for loose change this week)

I do have some recycling to do.  It’ll probably bring a good $10 so that’ll be my emergency fund.   I also am a hostess this week for a party so I’ll be very creative when it comes to creating some goodies.

So drugstore shopping.  This week I just took our MISC dollars from our envelope system.  I had about $20

I still have my $50 gift card from Mypoints that I used this week.

(after I typed all his up I remembered taht we had a “trial” transaction.  The toothbrushes 2/$5 were all cleared out but the ad listed Cross-Action toothbrushes so I asked them to price check these toothbrushes.  They rang up 2/$6 and I had the $2/1 coupon and I figured after the $2RR that it would make em free.  Well, it spit out a $3RR so in the end it was a $1MM.  I only used coupons on these so I ended up spending $2+ tax but I went back and got all my other purchases and totally forgot about this one.  $3RR added for next week bring the total up to $20.50RR :))
