Hello everyone, I didn’t Blog much in December but that seems to be almost the norm for a lot of bloggers like me. I’m still here and we’re all fine.
I am still shopping at CVS. In fact, one of my plans is to shop for everything a lot more carefully.
This is what I bought early this Sunday morning, on our way to church....
Before the total was a lot, about $130 ish.
I had a few coupons, some extracarebucks from previous weeks, some coupons from the CVS red box and 2 emailed coupons, a $10/60 and 30% off non sale items.
After all deductions, I paid $32 in cash and got back $32 in Extracarebucks (that was just a coincidence the amounts were the same. )
One very easy deal for every CVS card holder is to get the $3.99 toothpaste Coupon from the CVS app and load it to your CVS card. It makes a tube 100% free.
Some other careful shopping was how I spent $70 in birthday money. (My Birthday was a few days before Christmas and I turned 60 😱)
I shopped sales and used coupons as well as a military discount at Rack Room Shoes.
The sandals and boots were both originally $69 a pair.
At Bath and Body Works, the big candles were in sale for $10 and I used a $10/40 Coupon.
The double wall water bottle is from Walmart and was just $4.94
And I have $5 left
We are having really cold weather right now, like most of North America, and the boots are really keeping my feet warm and cozy.
With the New Year, I have plans to do several home projects, like organizing.
These are before photos of my laundry room. I cleaned it all up Wednesday but haven’t had a chance to take after photos yet because.......
our new puppy Ducky
......my husband was out of town, 2 grandsons came to stay for a couple days, we had an impromptu birthday party for my dad and............
We adopted a new puppy. A friend posts him on Facebook. He was found in the country and his owners couldn’t be found. We suspect he was dumped off.
She told me he was a sweetheart, but her parents couldn’t keep him because they were getting ready to downsize to a motor home.
So I got him because he looks like a perfect pup for our home.
He’s been to the Vet. He weighed 7 pounds, could be 6 weeks to 9 weeks old, may be schnauzer or wire hair terrior and some mutt. He had worms and was treated for those and for his first puppy shot like a trooper.
He’s eating great and doing good with house training. He was around 5 grandchildren at one time and their noise and noisy toys didn’t bother him a bit.

So, I’ll take the laundry room after photos soon and Hopefully lots other before and after was January goes on.
I’ll update my 100 day sewing challenge too.
Goodbye for the last time in 2017.
