Long Time No Update...

Sorry y'all! I've been so busy with end-of-the-semester stuff and getting ready for finals. Anyway, yesterday was my birthday! I turned twenty and I went shopping and out to eat with my boyfriend (who got me the most beautiful necklace and made me a wonderful cake). I won't list everything I got for you because it would take forever, but I wanted to let you know about a couple of deals I found:

I got four salad plates (two of each of the above) at Target last night for 88 cents each on clearance. I already have about six ceramic ones but I thought plastic would be nice for summer, and I like to use salad plates as lunch plates to eat smaller portions. Plus you really can't beat 88 cents per plate! The dinner plates were 98 cents each. 

I got each of these for $1.99 each on sale. They're just plastic (4 small bowls and 4 tumblers), but after my roommate leaves in a couple of weeks I'm not going to have any cups other than mugs, so I needed to get some! 

Each of these panels was $6.00, and I'm going to hang them in my bathroom somewhere... as soon as Jake isn't busy working or studying (so probably about three weeks from now lol). 

Now to find out how I got all of that stuff for above for just one penny (not including sales tax), you're going to have to read after the jump...

I have been getting so frustrated with trying to find the sales I need. I just wanted to get the Dove men's deodorant at CVS (just one of them! just one!), but EVERY TIME I go it's sold out (and don't even get me started about the Nivea bodywash...). Finally, last night I just got fed up and took CVS's ad to Wal-Mart, where they had the deodorant WITH a sample of  body wash attached. Since Wal-Mart has started price matching ads, they gave me the deodorant for CVS's price of 99 cents. Since I had a coupon for $1.00, I got it for free plus a penny overage. I also had two of those 1 cent pantiliner coupons from Target, so I used both of those at Wal-Mart, and the overage from the deodorant paid for one of them. THEN I ran to Kroger to get something else and picked up the Brut deodorant while I was there; it was on sale for $1.00 and I had a $1.00 coupon. All in all, before sales tax, I paid one penny TOTAL for the 4 items above. I have to say I'm pretty proud of myself!
