Today is the first official day of summer! The little kids are all at camp, so I spent most of the day spending and saving money.
Matt and I started last night at Walmart. This was a quick trip to buy sunscreen and tea bags. We used almost half of his $25 gift card from Swagbucks and another $2 he had earned from Shopkicks. Total spent $0
I picked up Mom not so early this morning and we headed to Winston-Salem.
Our first stop was Ulta. Lily has extremely sensitive skin. Two years ago, we discovered a sunscreen that did not burn, sting or break her out, the only down side is that each tube cost $40 before tax and shipping. One of the other moms at the pool shared “Australian Gold Sunscreen” with us last weekend. Lily loved it. I found a sale at ULTA that was Buy One Get One Half Off. I purchased 2 containers of sunscreen for $21 or half the price I have been spending.
Next stop was Babies R Us. The prices are currently 60% to 80% off. I was totally shocked at the deals we found. I purchased 2 bibs, a cute outfit, a set of shoe socks, a gift for a baby shower next week,5 birthday presents and a Christmas present. I also grabbed 4 sets of invitations. total spent was $107.39 Total saved was $171.18
I had my rebate check from Costco so we headed over to grab my normal grocery list. After using the rebate check, I spent $44. The best deal of the day was a pair of water sandals for me for $4.97.
Our final stop was Harris Teeter. Matt won out with this trip. 12 pack of Mountain Dew cans were $2.74 each. He ended up with a total of 10 packs. I also grabbed Kraft Mac and cheese for $0.39 a box!
I am so excited to find all the summer deals today!
