Saving your Dollars

SAVED $33.00 between Staples and Kohl's

SPENT $9.00 SAVED $33.00

This week I noticed in the Staples insert that there were a few nice FREE items advertised. 

My Staples Deals:
Three items had rebates, making the 100 Envelopes and 50 Kodak Glossy Photo Paper FREE.  The 50 Avery Shipping Labels ended up being 1/2 OFF.

I paid $8.00 for my Staples items and we all know how expensive office supplies are these days!  I was really happy to restock my Etsy shop.  I use as much recycled supplies as I can to wrap my items, getting bubble wrap and tissue paper on freecycle.

A new Kohl's just opened in Charlottesville.  It is the first large retail business that has come to our community since we moved here 1.5 years ago.  Kohl's mailed out $10.00 gift cards to celebrate the occasion, so I paid $1.00 for a new sink drain stopper.  The one we had was a pain and Anthony and I were on the verge of breaking a wrist or hurling it across the room causing potential animal harm.  So this was a great buy.
Do we really need at least 100 different brands of Yogurt?  This doesn't even make mention of the FLAVORS of yogurt that are now available, which must be into the thousands.  You really have to be a container reader to make sure you're not getting Aspartame or some other crap.  Let's face it, do you really need 20 ingredients in a little container of yogurt?  What is all that stuff anyway. 

That's why I just stick to what tastes good - Stonyfield Farm is really good.  They came out with a Honey Mango and that was sensational.  I also like Chobani Greek Yogurt.  Both don't have all that added mess.

I love hearing about your deals - leave a comment!
