What a nice trip. Jessica, Katchy, Katrina, and I all headed to Vegas for spring break. The weather was excellent. We stayed at the Mirage and our room was so nice. The pool was awesome also! We went and saw the Beetles Love show, Divas Las Vegas ( a hilarious drag show) and we shopped.
Yikes. Post are few and far between. I am making it through. We finally get to be in the classroom on Tuesday. Right now we are doing reading tutoring Tuesday and Thursdays. The great news is spring break is just around the corner. We are going to Vegas! My sister, Katchy and Katrina are meeting up for 3 days to enjoy a little break. It is going to be great. Just have to make it to March 12th. Also I started back on Weight Watchers a few weeks ago. I want to look good for graduation and so far it's working well. Losing every week. Well until next time.
So after making my binder and clipping coupons in my spare time I finally put them to use today. I was so nervous when I got up to the register. I just kept thinking great if they don't take the coupon I'm not getting the item, and then hoping I would be able to avoid that! I went to Target and got: Buy 1 get 1 free Febreez Fabric Refresh ( saved 4.99) NyQuil/Dayquil pack ( saved 1.50) 2 GE low energy flood lights for the kitchen ( saved 1.00) Oatmeal products ( saved about 5.00) Special K (Saved 2.50) Mac N Cheese ( saved .55) That's all I can think of right now. But my total savings was 24.90! Pretty good for a first trip. Only 1 coupon was denied but I had an alternate. I separated all my stuff with coupons from the other items and did 2 transactions so I could see my savings. My other items were a little over $25 so that made them almost free! I have decided to only use Target and then Walgreens and CVS. The 2 drugstores are literally around the corner, Target is a little further but they seem to have the best coupons and I had a good experience. I hope to really start saving big. I realized how much more I could have saved if all the items were on sale! It was sort of a rush and I must say I might be addicted!
