There are two things on my mind today. First and most important, I'm in the mood to bake all things yummy! Of course healthy too. By healthy I really mean full of fat but too delish to really care =) So I'll start with a small batch of Peppermint Bark, followed by Whole Wheat Banana Bread. For lunch Fried Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches (thank you Elvis!), and to top it off something that has frosting on it! I haven't decided what that something will be yet, but frosting is definitely on the menu! Maybe by itself.
Second thing on my mind, since I am somewhat of a budget-ista (like fashionista of budgeting) then I'm thinking of something budgety. This week at Walgreen's you can get some great deals. First off, if you spend $25 in store, you'll get $5 in Register Rewards or Jingle Cash as they're called for Christmas. JC or RR's (for short) can be used at a later date. Actually usually you can turn around and use it right then, but the $5 for $25 purchase is to be used at a later date.
Back to the deals. Ragu (2/$3) or Hellman's ($3) buy $15 worth and get $5 in RR's. Add to that 6 Hallmark cards for $.99 each- which will get you $5 in RR's. Add Revlon Top Speed nail polish for $5.99- get a $5 RR.
NOW!!! Go to the cosmetic's counter and get the "All Things Bright and Beautiful" Booklet inside is a $1 of any Revlon cosmetic. Here's what it should look like:
10 jars of Ragu- $15.00
6 Hallmark cards- $5.94
1 Revlon Top Speed Nail Polish- $5.99
TOTAL $26.93 + tax
Minus $1 coupon
$25.93 + tax
Get back (4) $5 RR= $20 in RR
If you already have Register Rewards, use them to make your expenses even less!!!
