In my classes, I ask who paid for their last tube of toothpaste. It lets me know who has already started this wonderful adventure of couponing. I can't remember the last time I paid for toothpaste... until our vacation a couple weeks ago. Yes, I PAID for toothpaste. I forgot to pack the little kids' toothpaste. After listening to them whine that our toothpaste was "too hot" for two days, I broke down and bought them the toothpaste they use. Of course my dear, sweet, wonderful hubby was loving it! I heard comments from him the entire time we were in Walmart, "What?! You are paying for toothpaste?!" "Wait til we get back to the room, I am going to post this on Facebook!" "I need to talk to Michelle (my dear Savvy Shopper friend) and see what she thinks about this!" So I thought I would just put it out there before he remembered and took the chance to throw me under the bus. :o) He loves to keep me motivated to save money!
I know I did take advantage of some sales while we were on vacation, but my brain is drawing a blank as to what they were. Don't ya hate when that happens?!
Now I'm off to get ready for a little CVSing. Gotta take advantage of a nice $5 off $15 purchase coupon that I got from the magic red scanner.
