My trip to CVS.

January 3rd, 2008 at 12:54 pm

I am a big fan of CVS.This week they have
a big sale on CVS brand products.It buy
one get one half price.I have RA so I am
in pain alot so I got some of thouse
arthritis heatwraps for my shoulder and
a jar of dry roasted peanut.

At check out the cash rester kicked out
some very nice coupons one was a 10:00
extra bucks,10:00 off 50:00,a 4:00 extra
buck,and three more.

I used the 14:00 extra
buck right away to buy five bottle of body
wash....two of the softsoap pure cashmere
and three of the new Dove creame oil,they
all had the 50% off sticker on them ,I al
so was able to get a 7.8 0z.tub of the
new Crest pro.health night toothpast.

I got all that for free and in the store I
found a rebate on the toothpast to get a
coupon for a free tub.I think that was a
best buy.

November 10th, 2006 at 01:08 pm

Went shoping at CVS they had four or five
buggies that was full of discounted stuff
halloween candy,all kind of stuff for halloween.

A lot of garden needs and the like I was'nt tempted by any of that stuff, what
cought my eyes was the many packs of my
favoret soft drink mix Crystal Light.

Need less to say I grabed up all that was in thouse buggies.There was ten... eight quart packs at only $1.49 each.A saveing
of over half off.There was also three... boxes of the Crystal Light On The Go ten
packets that was also only $1.49.

What a great deal.

What I drink most of the time is the
Wal-mart Great Value soft drink mix it
cost $1.89 for a twelve quarts pack.I was
down to my last two 12 quarts packs.

Now I wont have to buy soft drink mix for
a while.

All the Crystal Light packs had a xpg date
of 11Nov07.So they was all good.

I did give in and buy a bag of candy at
half price too.The candy was $1.49 too.

A week or two ago I got this coupon from
Kroger...fill three prescription at the kroger pharmacy and....get $60.00 in free

So for I have gotten $40.00 in free food all
you have to do is buy $20.00 or more in groceries and it will come up when your food

food by doing what you would do anyway.


Problem giveing platlets

October 15th, 2006 at 05:43 am

When I was off tuesday I went to give blood
it something I have been doing now for over
ten years.For the past three years I have
been giveing platlet.

To give platlet it take two and a half to
three hours siting with a big needle stuck
in your arm.I started giveing platlet because it good for alot of sick people and
me too.For me it thin out my thick diabetes
and heart disease blood.It make it less stickly and prone to clot.

The blood center know about all my heaalth
problem and they still wont my blood.

The problem is this time and the last three
time I gave platlet the person really mess
up my arm I know have a very very large
bruse on my arm it very sore and has swollen up.

I now wonder if it safe for me to keep
doing this?I was thinking of only give
whole blood from now on or just stoping
give all togther.If any of you know if
this is save for me because of all my
health problem let me know?

I like to give to other if it
only blood and not money.I don't wont to give this up unless I have too.

October 14th, 2006 at 08:59 pm

Enjoyed my three days off.Wish it had been
for the whole week.well we can't have everything can we?

Went shoping at wal-mart..found a loveseat
slipcover on sale for $11.00 was $49.94 it
was discontinted.Needed a can opener it was
$8.97.Bought a queen size flat sheet to use
on my double bed as a bed skirt it was
$10.97.My bed is exter high because Iam useing a riser under my bed so I can have extra under bed storage.

A day later I found a very nice bedskirt
at goodwill for $1.99..that was on sale
for .99 cent can't beat that.So the $10.97 sheet will go back to wal-mark.

Today I opened the window blinde to let in
the sun shine to chase away the chill in
the air...tradler are always chiller or
hoter than a house.

Did a lot of bakeing today so I won't have
to do so much cooking next week.The heat
from the oven was nice too.

Found .15 cent in street money not bad for
found money.Got to love free money.

October 9th, 2006 at 02:50 pm

Needed a few things from kroger so walked to the store this morning.It was so nice and cool out didn't have to worry about burning
up.And was able to get some excrise too

Spent a little over $28.00 was able to use the $5.00 off $25.00 coupon that kroger had
sent me.
Bread,yougart,fresh veggie,oatmeal,soy burgers,can pineapple and coolwhip was on my
list of things needed.This was my first shoping trip in over two weeks.

Doing my best to stay out of Wal-mart that
place is a money pit.Can't be to hard on them though I did find a five shelve bookcase on sale about three weeks ago for $25.00 that I put in my
kitchen to use as a prantry.
It't working very nicely as a prantry too.

Will be cooking some of thouse veggie for

I got my summer pay?

September 3rd, 2006 at 02:07 pm

Instead of takeing time off this summer to rest and relax I took on a summer job at my
work place to make some exter money to have
a porch built on to my tradler.It was a good
ideal but,I did'nt make as much money as I though I would.

I worked for six weeks...six and a half hours five days a week for way less than

My job as a school custodian has
only two good things about it...one I don'
have to work on the weekend or most holydays
and two the insurance ..that I only pay two dollar a month for.

Thank God for that insurance my five to six hour
stay in the hospital for the Heart Cat was
over $12,000.00.

I do need a better job but,I only finish
high school and what I have had traineing
for is cooking the jobs I have had in restaurants havent payed much eather and
the insurance is to high too buy. So with
my healthy issues I do need good insurance
That leave me between a rock and a hard

I will put this money in saveing.

I havent
forgotten my screenedin porch it will be
like haveing a extra room added on to my
tradler that I can enjoy most of the year
hear in the south.Will put it on the back
buner for now.Next time I will have extra
money will be tax time.

Well I take that back the state of alabama
might be giving us a raise and if I do get
a raise it will go into saveing too.Always
pay yourself first, off the top befor you see the money and you wont miss it.

I am happy to be back miss my posting and
reading your too.
