Target has buy 3 get one Free on sixteen count Starbucks K cups and 12 ounce ground or bean coffee. Not a cheap brand, so I look for deals whenever I can. This is enough coffee for 5 - 6 months. K cups for the morning, ground for me to make cold press. Not pictured is one French Roast K cup box which DD will take back up north with her. I am a coffee snob. I only drink coffee and water (an occasional diet coke, but rarely). I have tried less expensive brands and have not enjoyed them. So, DH and I agreed that this is my splurge. 101.91 - 9.00 - 4.65 = $88.26. $14.71 a month average.
I had $18.00 in ECB's to use up before Saturday. I got DH three twelve packs of Diet Dr. Pepper and a six pack of Scott papertowels. I paid .79 cents!
And now the bad news. Washing machine went the way of the dinosaur. Not a great time with a houseguest, my schedule ramping up and DD home to try and do some laundry. Of course DH had just splurged and gotten a pair of binoculars (he is a raptor seeker). Never fails that when you spend some money and unexpected expense crops up, right?
I did some research as DH was taking the water OUT of the nonworking machine. I went with the cheapest and least complicated of the top 10 washers of 2015. Whirlpool Duet. I got free delivery (it's coming today!) used a $50 dollar coupon and interest free for 12 months using our Sears card. I then went to the energizeCT site and submitted my emailed receipt. Got a $50.00 rebate from the state of CT which has already been approved and is on it's way in the form of a prepaid Visa card.
I tried my best. $619.00 How do you think I did?
