At Walgreens, I got Sally Hansen Insta-Gel started kit for $10.99 (reg. price $29.99).

Then Target, I bought 2 2pk Suave Professional shampoo and conditioner, 2 Lady Speed deodorants, 2 Degree men deodorants, 2 Clear men shampoos, Schick razors, Simple foam facial wash, Simple toner, 2 Simple facial wipes, Loreal total repair dry oil (with travel size shampoo for free), Target brand facial wipes and qtips for $41.96, received $10 gift cards and I saved $59.85.

This weekend we did not really go anywhere so saved money that way. The only thing we did do was food shopping and for 8 people for this week I only spent $103 on food. I was excited.

It took a lot of meal planning and figuring out sales but I was so happy.

Well the only thing I can think of is 8 boxes of Special K cereal for 1.79 each with coupon and price match. We also never go out to eat and got a BOGO at Unos and a babysitter. LOL

What was your secret in saving so much money on food?

We stayed in this weekend and did a much needed relaxing weekend, so I didn't spend any $.

We worked on our minivan (deer damage.)  The insurance company totaled the vehicle and gave us $2550 for the value (minus $100 deductible, minus $500 title buyback...total of $1950).  My DS found the necessary body parts and headlight and we worked on the minivan this weekend, and it's done.  Paid $425 for the parts, and we're going to give DS $250 for the work he did....so we'll be MAKING A PROFIT of $1275!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah...I still don't want to go through that again.

and after....

We went to the park a couple times and I went to the thrift store- spent $11 on four little bowls (I give DS little snacks in them), two books and three DVDs for DS and a brand new window film kit (normally about $12 at Walmart, I paid $1.) Almost everything I got was the half off color.
