Some weekend shopping

March 27th, 2011 at 03:36 pm

Just got back from a walk that was shorter than intended. It was so sunny I thought it would be nice and that I would warm up as got going. Wrong. It's very cold, and the wind is biting.

I went to Walgreen's yesterday to use my rewards. I had $11 and I added another $1.18 and got a bag of clementines and candy and toys for the grandkids' Easter buckets.

Today I made my Target trip. I had a $5 gift card, but I spent $39.78 above that. I needed AA batteries (I couldn't find any in the house, though I have a sinking feeling there's a whole lot of them SOMEWHERE!) Both my mouse and a clock were dead without the batteries. I bought an 18-pack for $7.21, as it was the best deal, but since I don't go through a lot of batteries I don't know if that was too smart. Oh well, I can use them in my camera if nothing else. I also bought a watering can to take to work (2.99) and a pencil sharpener for my eyeliner pencil for $1.37 (it was down to the jagged edge) and I splurged on a food scale. I've been dieting and so often I am guessing at the weight of a food item -- now I'll know. The scales ranged from $4.99 to $49.99. I got the mid-range -- $29.99. I want something that will do the job and hold up for a while. The little ones couldn't handle much weight and looked flimsy -- my guess is they would be unreliable, too. The fancy one -- well, I'm sure it's very nice, but I'm happy with what I got. It has a digital scale and a glass tray and is very sleek in appearance. I'll keep it sitting out on my countertop, it's that cute.

I also filled up my gas tank -- $34.51. It was the cheapest gas around, $3.59.

No grocery shopping this week. I am stocked up well enough, so I will resume 15 items next Saturday.

I babysat on Saturday and in the process got a free lunch. I was very tempted to stop at Steak N Shake on the way home, but made myself drive past it. It would have thrown my calorie count way off, anyway!

    The weather was exactly the same in CT. I bundled up and walked for just 30 minutes, the breeze made it chilly.
    Walgreens sells clementines?

    It's very warm here Frown I would like a little cooler weather but it will not happen here in FL anytime soon. Just wondering have you tried rechargeable batteries? They're great

    I have tried the rechargeables, but it seemed like I never had them charged when I needed them! An organization problem.

    PS, our Walgreen's has a pretty extensive food section with freezers and everything. However, produce is unusual. They had a special kiosk set up with the clementines.
