I just got back from spending money all over the place. First stop: Post office to mail six books for the PaperBackSwap exchange. I can’t wait to get credits so I can get more books I want! Postage was $14.14.
Next, I went to the gas station to fill up. Around here, gas is $3.09. I went to the GetGo gas station, because with my Giant Eagle card, I could get .30 off per gallon. Giant Eagle has a program such that for every $50 you spend at their store, you get $0.10 off per gallon. Over the past few months, I had accumulated that $0.30 discount. At about 11 gallons, I paid $2.79/gallon and saved about $3.30.
Finally, I went to the grand opening of Aldi. What a bright and shiny store! This one is the nicest one I’ve ever been in. There were a lot of people there, and many were first-timers. I’m glad I brought an extra quarter to give to a lady who needed her cart.
She tried to give me .25, but I told her that last time, I needed a cart and someone helped me out, so I asked her to bring two quarters the next time she comes to Aldi so she can help someone else.
When I went into the store, I had my $5 off $30 coupon. When I got to the checkout, I no longer had that coupon. It must have fallen out somewhere in the store. Meep! I hope someone will use it.
I still got a full cart of groceries, and spent $40. Arg. But, if I bought those same items at Kuhn’s or Giant Eagle, I probably would have spent at least $70, if not more.
Since we’ll be gone for a week over the Thanksgiving holiday, we won’t have to spend as much on groceries later this month.
Sorry for the lack of posts today. I’m just uninspired, I guess.
