Rainbow Quickie

Posted 09-24-2011 at 04:54 PM by tleca77

Went to Rainbow with just a few items in mind, mostly planning to check out the deals, get some basics, and double my 5 - $1 Qs for the day.
Got LOTS of tea-- they had a bunch of varieties of yummy organic tea on clearance. And they happened to be brands I had Qs for-- what a surprise!

Walgreens Deals

There was an accident on the highway near my work, near the end of my work day, so traffic was really backed up. I needed to go to Walgreens after work and figured I may as well take my time! Hoping the highway would be cleared up by the time I left (which it was).

Got some unexpected sales and deals, and also noticed 2 mistakes on my receipt once I got home! Items which were posted to be on sale, but rang up at regular price. I'll have to check back on those tomorrow.

Had originally planned to split these trips between my 2 days off, but ended up doing them both today. Wow, was I hungry when I got home!!

Hit up Target for lots of stuff, then a small-ish trip to Rainbow.

Long, Successful Trip to Rainbow

Not gonna lie, I spent most of my evening grocery shopping. Didn't even hit up a couple locations-- this was all one trip. I shopped very slow, did really well, too.

Rainbow doubled 5 of my $1 Qs, so that was a quick $5 made. I was really shopping the deals tonight, looking for bargains to stack Qs on. I wasn't going off a set list, for once, just hunting for some different items to stock the fridge with.

Quickie Rainbow Trip for Brunch Supplies

Posted 08-22-2011 at 12:33 PM by tleca77

Saturday morning I had a very hungover DGF and dear friend laying on the couches at my house. I volunteered to make brunch, knowing that would be cheaper and easier than going out. Wow, those girls got spoiled that morning!

As soon as I got back, I put a mimosa & a bloody mary in their respective hands and got to cooking us all a big yummy breakfast-- eggs with fresh onions, tomatoes and red & green peppers, and hashbrowns.
