Quote for the Day:
" We do not remember days, we remember moments."
This may not be the kind of "moment" that Mr. Pavese was talking about...but yesterday I remember feeling my foot slide around in my sandal. Then, as I lost my balance, I remember thinking, "oh no, I'm gonna break my wrist" as I put my right arm out to catch my body that was headed towards the ground at a very rapid rate.
Thank God I didn't break my wrist...or my elbow...or anything else. When I fell, I landed on my right leg and forearm when I hit the curb. :( Yes...it was very painful...thank you for asking!
As for my hand and elbow...there are only have a few minor scrapes to show for that.
Luckily, Andy was there to help me up. And for the rest of the day I walked holding onto his arm...my leg was just sore enough that I was afraid I might lose my balance again.
My leg is still sore where I landed on it, but not enough to stop me from doing my regular activities today.
Today I went and did my Walgreen's and Rite Aid coupon shopping and got some great deals!
I got $58.87 worth of products, paid $16.25 out-of-pocket, will get back $14.98 in mail-in-rebates, and got $10.00 back in Register Rewards...making this shopping trip an $8.73 moneymaker! YAY!!
BTW, when you are in the stores, don't forget to look at the clearance sections...I've been needing a new lipstick since mine are all down to the nubs now...and I found a nice one in the clearance section for 49 cents! :) Gotta love that!
From Rite Aid:
I got $21.76 worth of products, paid $1.54 out-of-pocket, will get $4.99 back in rebate, and received $8.38 back in +Up Rewards...making this shopping trip an $11.83 moneymaker! WOOHOO!!
Andy is well-versed in seeking out deals and coupon shopping, too...so while I was making my run to Walgreen's and Rite Aid, he went to Kroger and bought $119.67 worth of products but only paid $39.37 out-of-pocket! WOUZERS!!
YAY for us! That's a LOT of money saved between all of those stores!
