  • I purged unused electronics out of my home. I was given two free tablets. One my son broke, one I resold for $25. I am applying the funds of the sale to my last bill.
  • I received the $30.10 and applied it to my last bill.
  • I picked up (4) Big Sexy Hair spray at Target. The shelf price is $19.69/each. I price matched each bottle online at $10.99. I saved $34.80 and received $10 in Target gift cards. I, then, picked up a dental item. I price matched saving $.50 and used a $1.50 coupon found in the booklet from the dental office. The item was free after I used one of the gift cards. I used the other $5 to help pay for groceries.
  • I picked up (4) Schick Extreme 3 6-in-1 value razors for $4.42 + $5 Target gift card. I used the cartwheel, (2) $7/2 coupons and the $1.92 balance from aforementioned gift card. I rang through four more of the Extreme 3 razors with cartwheel, (2) $7/2 coupons and rolled the $5 gift card. I paid $1.39 + $5 Target gift card. My last transaction was a feminine product. I used a cartwheel and paid the difference with the gift card from the previous transaction.
  • I grabbed a Big Sexy Hair Root Pump 10 oz at Target and asked for a price match to their site. They rang up the match at $5.38 which I was surprised. The shelf price is $19.69 so I saved $14.31.
  • My sonís stockpile box is now complete. I paid $93.34 and saved $1,116.78.
  • I went to IHOP for Fatherís Day. I saved $11.99 using a BOGO omelet coupon.
  • I paid $.04 for a: 8 ct of Bic menís razors, 8 ct of paper towels and 12 dental items.
  • I had to adjust the budget for a $160 unexpected bill which I immediately paid. I also had to adjust for a trip to Chicago in September. My exís dad (my sonís grandfather) is sick. ĎI also have not seen my parents in three years. I have heard that my parents and my sonís grandfather will not recognize me. To say things have changed dramatically with me is an understatement.

My finger is now mostly healed -- no bandages nor medication.

My mouth is healing nicely. I still have a little bone protruding from one spot on my gums. I am now brushing again with toothpaste. I also feel much better. Iíve walked 5.5 k each of the last three days in 85 f weather without issue. I am taking it slow and ensuring I get enough rest.

It has been a long time since Iíve double and triple stacked and rolled gift cards. Between the price matches, coupon, cartwheels and gift cards, Iíve saved over $100.

1 no spend day
2 low spend day
