Friday Fave Five!

1. Frugal Friday: Went to Smith's. They're having a "mega 10" event or something. For every 10 items you purchase that are included in the event, you get $5 off (essentially a 50 cent discount per item). I bought 50 event items plus several other things. My total was $220 until they put my rewards card on there, which cut it in half, and then my coupons ($32.40 worth) brought it down to $80.41. Best deals: Uncle Ben's rice pouches were 99 cents each on the event, and I had $1 off coupons from the paper a couple weeks ago. So they were free plus a penny overage. Bumble Bee tuna pouches were 49 cents and I had either 50 cent or 55 cent coupons. Hormel chili was on the event as well and I had three coupons for $2 off 3 cans, so they were 12 cents each. My daughter loves chili, so that was awesome. I missed out on Playtex Living gloves which were also free, Duncan Hines frosting, and Ghiradelli brownie mix and Krusteaz pancake mix, the latter two of which generated catalinas on your next purchase. This sale goes through next Tuesday, so check out grocerysmarts.com and make a plan and go!

2. The bank fixing things up this morning. YAY!

3. Trunk or treating. Pics to come (can't upload right this second). Little Mister froze and protested loudly. Kidlet enjoyed eating donuts and looking at a Black Pearl ship with a Cap'n Jack Sparrow. She had a lot of fun and I wasn't totally crazy by the end, just cold.

4. ThermaCare heat wraps. I woke up with a stiff neck this morning that has gotten worse all day, so I got one out of the closet where I stashed all the ones I got for free a few weeks ago at Walgreen's, and it's currently residing on my neck, making the pain more tolerable. I actually got them for my periods because my cramps are horrid and I can't be stuck to a heating pad with a toddler running around ... oh the irony. Since I'm barely pregnant, I'm really not supposed to take any meds, so this is helping. yay.

5. Little Mister learned to go up and down stairs, is getting over his ear infection, cut his other tooth overnight, and is still a joy to be around. Love that kid. Love his sister(s), too.
