It's been an extremely frugal Friday morning here! Let's see what has happened....
My best friend, AKA The Freebie Fairy, has been at it again! She is doing more purging of her house and I am on the receiving end! Here's what she dropped off this morning..
Two lbs of frozen ground turkey (leftover in her freezer from the old douchebag boyfriend days)
30 extremely nice clothes hangers (which I needed more of/better quality ones so yay!)
1 brand new mascara (brand G1 loves so she'll get that)
1 IKEA 10x12(ish) white plastic container with lid (definitely will help corral linen closet misc)
1 medium sized graphic tshirt (consignment since I know it's neither Guppies style)
1 tin of Vermont "bag balm"
While she was dropping off the goodies at my doorstep, I was over at CVS....
I am the first to admit that I am nowhere NEAR the caliber of frugality that many other bloggers are. But, I am trying! And, I am super proud of today's haul!!
First off was my flu shot. There is no way around it. Thanks to my MS, everyone in the house needs to get one. (Honestly we would anyway.) Because CVS is the pharmacy Papa's company uses exclusively, I was able to walk into their Minute Clinic right around the corner from my house and get my flu shot for absolutely FREE! No copay whatsoever. AND, CVS is also running a special where if you get the flu shot from them, you get a 20% off coupon for a shopping trip!
I also had received an email from them for $10/$40 that I loaded onto my card. Truthfully, this is what prompted me into going to CVS this morning. I am no longer the "girly girl" I used to be, however, once in a while I do like to wear some makeup. And, thanks to G2, most of what I did have has disappeared or been completely used up. Papa and I are going out to dinner tonight and I thought it would be nice to put on some makeup.
So, anyway, combining the two coupons, here's how I did:
2 18 oz Soft Soap body scrubs
2 15 oz Soft Soap shower gels
(the above purchased since we are almost out of the misc soaps I had in the linen closet)
1 CoverGirl foundation
1 CoverGirl loose powder
(CG was buy 1/get 1 50% off)
Elf brand eyeshadow applicators (set of 5 double tipped)
Elf Shimmer lip gloss
Elf loose powder brush
Elf matte lip stain
Elf eyeshadow palette (10 natural/neutral colors)
Beauty 360 "paddle" hairbrushes -set of 2 one regular and one travel sized
How much did I spend on all the item above?
I received $10 in ECB back too!!
Super happy with how this morning has been going!
How's your Friday morning?
