A Late Shopping Trip


 Can you believe it’s already March. Not that I mind at all, it’s just that it seems like time is going by so fast. Yesterday was such a beautiful day. Warm and sunny. I even had the doors and windows opened up to get some fresh air into the house. So between being sick and stripping the banisters I really haven’t had time to look through my coupons. It’s been a couple of weeks, so I decided I better get back in the swing of things and get my coupons in order.  It took awhile but I finally finished up this morning.

So I’ve decided that I should go to Eau Claire just because I had some coupons that were about to expire and I really wanted to pick up these things. I also had to stop and get gas, and go to a couple of towns and drop off Avon Books so by the time I got to Eau Claire it was around 4 p.m. Two stops, is all I had. Target and Wal-Mart. Two 1/2 hours shouldn’t be too bad to get things done especially since I had my list and coupons in order and ready to go. But I’m not normal. I have items to get on my list but I also am searching for other deals that I can post. So first stop Target. Took a little longer than I expected, so I knew that by the time I got to Wal-Mart, I would have to make a mad dash because I wanted to be home by 7 pm. Well, I was 10 minutes late but I didn’t do to bad.  I was especially happy with my savings from Target – not so much at Wal-Mart. But savings is savings.  Take a look. Had to take a couple of pictures since everything didn’t fit in one picture.
