Wow, it is the last day of the month. Anyway, I had a pleasant surprise at the beauty salon - a facial is $20, not $30 - and worth every penny. It is a one hour facial - and because I had "re-booked" I got a complimentary parrafin wax for my hands. Also today, my husband accompanied me to Dollar Tree to try out their coupon deals. We only found a few - $1/4 Libby's veggies - and they were .79 each - so, that was an okay deal. And the $1/4 Libby's fruit and of course we got a couple of toothpastes for .25 after coupon. Good buys without coupons - Nature's Own bread and 3 packs of ankle socks. All in all, I can't complain - but it took forever to check-out. Then we ate lunch at KFC with coupons - that was our date :) I also shopped Dollar General Market - and spent $14 - and saved $18 and have my P&G rebate for $5 ready to go. For the first time ever, we stopped at a no-name close-out store - and I found yoga pants for $2. I also found some pants I can wear to work for $7.99 - so, I was pleased as punch. However, it is a hit or miss store for sure - there were bins of stuff to sort through, etc. But in my case - it was a hit today! Mail was great - got my $25 Barnes & Noble gift card from my credit card point redemption. I made home-made pizza and it too was a hit. One was sweet onions and the rest of the sun dried tomatoes, feta cheese and mozzarella - and the other was bacon, spinach, feta and mozzarella. So nice to have a long weekend. I need to make a trip to Aldi and probably Kroger to round out my grocery shopping.
