- 1 bag of Hershey's Simple Pleasures - originally $3.99.
A writer has to have chocolate! HT was having a sale on these for 2 for $6.00, but I got one bag for $3.00. Used a $1.50 coupon that doubled and got these for FREE!
- 2 bars of Toblerone - originally $2.59.
Hey, chocolate keeps well. Anyway, these were discounted to $2.29 each, and I had a coupon for $1.00 off 2 bars. So that was $2.00, making each bar $1.29 each.
- 2 stacks of Ziploc containers - originally $3.89
These were special holiday containers - not the clear kind, but colored red and green for Christmas giving. These were discounted to $1.97 each, and I had a $1 off coupon if I bought two. So essentially these were buy one, get one free for me for $1.97, or about 98 cents each!
- Hormel Meatloaf microwavable lunch - originally $2.57
I like to keep these around for lunch when I'm alone. This was discounted to $1.97, and I had a $1 off coupon, making this free as well.
Later today at Target, I scored a pouch of Betty Crocker Gingerbread cookie mix on clearance. Cost was 62 cents, and a 40 cent coupon for cookie mix brought it down to 22 cents! Nothing keeps a writer happy like cheap chocolate and cookies!
Since I'll be working at home more, I'll need to be more frugal and save my money for RT and other cons I have happening this year. Clip those coupons while you can - they do work!
