Making Money is ALWAYS fun!!

Today I went on an impromptu shopping trip and was able to MAKE money on some stuff!  I wasn't planning on shopping at all this week since I was supposed to be at Children's hospital all week with my son.  His surgery got rescheduled, so I was able to go out and use up the rest of my Albertson's Twice the Value coupons and my Walgreens Register Rewards.


This trip would have been better but since it is the last day of the "Twice the Value" coupons, most of the stuff I wanted to get was gone.  :(  So, I had to improvise and get a couple of other things that are always great to have around.  These are the three transactions I did:


3 Rhodes Warm and Serve Dinner Rolls (LOVE THESE!), on sale for $2.50
-$1/1 coupon from 3/20 RP x 3
-Twice the Value Coupons x 3
TOTAL $1.50

= $2.00
