Today Walgreens and Kmart couponing

Starting with the 1,000 balance rewards, and doing only #3 and #5.

Then I went to Kmart, had a $3 credit that expired today so had to spend it.
For the $3 rewards I bought the angle soft TP. It was on sale for 4.99 and had a .45 Q that doubled. great price. Then 2 Schick, one isn't in picture, gave it away.
Mine didn't go as the scenario but still saved some good money.
I came home and there was my precious Audrey being hugged my her favorite pillow pal.
Isn't she precious.

Todays couponing haul

Had a good day couponing, this morning I went to the CVS in Granite Bay, Ca.  after my morning runs because it doesn't get much business and won't have people patiently waiting for my transactions. This store is small so the shelves aren't stocked up like the bigger stores which is a draw back.

Breakfast of champions. We just got a chick -fil-e in Granite Bay. So good and the Polynesian sauce is the bomb, not in picture.
Bought 2 lipsticks for .72 each.
Free bought 2
Had 2 coupons but they only took one, they said it had to look like the picture. This Walmart is new and the managers don't know anything about Q's.
Took a great trip to Black Chasm Caverns off of Latrobe and HWY49 near Jackson Rancheria, Ca.
Would of gone inside and taken pictures but I'm still recouping from a broken toe. I didn't think I could handle all those steep stairs.

Busy week couponing and field trips

Took a trip to the Apple Store at the Gallaria Mall

I guess even the CHP has to shop sometime.

Wednesday took a trip to the Black chasm caverns. This one was 117 miles away and took 1hr.45min. A great trip.

On the way home I decided to stop at Rite Aid and do some couponing.
Copied this from
Did pretty good. paid 2.75 and received $2 in rewards.
My crazy neighborhood, the house that the cops are always at ran into his baby mommas garage and she started screaming at him to get off her property, it's like a soap opera around here.

Garden start up

I have been fighting google since January trying to log on. I don't know if there was a virus or what but finally was able to log in.
I read on Facebook that you can make caramel sauce from sweetened condensed milk in a crock pot so I had to try it.
Put a can of sweetened condensed milk in a crock pot full of water. Remove the label first.
set it on low for 8 hrs.
I put it in 5pm and set the oven timer to go off in 8 hrs. which would be at 1:00 am. Remember to tell your family what the alarm is for because my son turned it off and I didn't find the can till 12 noon the next day.
of course it was burnt.
I bought some apples special for caramel sauce so I'm trying again.
Starting off slow, buying our plants. My son is getting the garden itch. Now that his finger is finally healing and doesn't have to worry about getting it wet.

Our second year with the Misty early season Blueberry. It's a little peppery so I think I will be buying another one that is sweeter.

2 Jalapenos

1 Big Beef and 1 Sweet 100 tomato.

My favorite, Pom Pom Peonies

Asiatic Lilly

My son's finger
He just had the stitches out and it looks like he won't lose it thank goodness.
