My Picks:

Shopping Trip

Wednesday May 19, 2010

I thought I should take a picture of a shopping trip for this week!  I will try to remember to take more pictures of my shopping trips. I am so used to coming home and putting everything away and I only remember about pictures when I have the last item on my hand to be put away.  But I remembered this time, so here it is:

This was at Smiths:

5 -pk (2) Dial Soap Bars

1 -French Mustard

2 -Cholula Hot Sauce

3 -Pkg American Cheese

1 -Double Pkg Always Pads

5- Pkg Flips Chocolate Pretzels

5- 3 Musketeers

14- Chewing Gum

1- Sandwich Thin Bread

1- Bottle of Capers

Total before my Smiths Card: $80.58.  Total after Sales, Smiths Card and Coupons: $5.61 (it was supposed to be $4.61. I had a coupon for a free Always Pad and the cashier marked the price incorrect and I didn’t notice it until I got home…oh well)

That is a 93.04 % savings! WOW WOW WOW

Here is a picture:

Now, I am really trying to be good and not eat so much candy and etc… Here are some things I do with the chocolate, gum, and treats I get:

  • I send it to my husband’s work. He has a candy dish which makes his co-workers and friends happy.
  • I give it to friends/neighbors as a “thinking about you”, “get well soon”, “good luck today” type gifts. It works for many different types of occasions.
  • If I am asked to speak in public, I can bring treats to pass around.
  • I am always entertaining company. I love to have people over; so those treats are a great way to get people talking and enjoying themselves while I make dinner.
  • They are also great to take to peoples’ home for social occasions. I have never seen anyone get upset when bringing them chocolate! 😉
  • Since I LOVE to cook and bake, chocolates can be used when making mousses, pie crust, mixed with cake batter and etc.
