When you go to CVS they have a kiosk where you can scan your rewards card to see if any coupons are awaiting you. One of the coupons that it spit out was for $4 off any $12 or more razor purchase. Another coupon was 20% off any regular priced item. I remembered that I also had a $6 off manufacturer coupon at home for these razor refills. I already have a brand new box of razor refills in my bathroom vanity, but I also wasn't gonna pass up a deal like this. So I returned to CVS later that day to purchase the $19.99 razor refills--less a $6 manufacturer coupon, less a $4 off razor items CVS coupon, less a 20% off coupon for a grand total of $6.51. See why I had to get them?
My next stop was the Giant out by where my mom lives. In a previous post I talked about yellow tag meat. Well there are many other yellow tag items that Giant carries. Most Giants have a three-tiered metal shelf in the frozen food section stocked with yellow tag items. In addition to miscellaneous packaged foods (usually with dented or crushed outer containers) I love to buy the discounted bread. It is usually bread that has an approaching "best by" date. I will take it to use right away or just freeze it. This is what I picked up today.
Would I normally buy cake flour? No, I have a 25-pound bag of flour sitting in my basement right now. Just the same, the cake flour will not go to waste. I've already used it to make cupcakes for two occasions this week.
After shopping adventure, I arrived at my mom's to show her and my sister the bag of goods I racked up and share the prices that I got them at. Right away my sister smiled, walked over to the table, and dangled a pack of hamburger buns in front of me with none other than...a yellow tag.
