Hope for Tomorrow, Grace for Today...what it means...

For in this HOPE we are saved. But HOPE that is seen is no HOPE at all. Who HOPES for what he already has?

~Romans 8:24

And if by GRACE, then it is no longer by works; if it were, GRACE would no longer be GRACE.

~Romans 11:6

It's been a while...but I wanted to share my score!!

Okay...I have really been out of touch with my little blog here. Steve and I went with friends to Mexico at the beginning of July (fabulous, by the way...if I get more time someday I will write up a little post about it!). Then with VBS and catching back up with life, well, you know how it goes!!

I went to Rite Aid today (without kids, thanks to Lisa) and I did GREAT!!!

Pampers (31 ct)
wipes (72 ct)
4 Herbal Essence products
1 Crest Toothpaste

Total Before Coupons (but after Wellness card) : $25.17

-$5 off $25 video value coupon
-$1.50 off pampers
-free wipes (3.69) when you buy pampers
-free herbal essence stylers (2.50 each) with sham or conditioner (x2)
-$.75 Crest

Total: $9.23!!

That's not all...I got $1.50, $2 and $2 +up rewards for $off next purchase (crest, pampers, herbal essence when you buy 2). The pampers also have a $2 rebate.

So...I paid $9.23 and got $5.50 in up rewards and $2 rebate.

I turned around and went to the 50% off backpacks sale and found the last Toy Story backpack for my big boy who's turning 4 on Saturday.

Backpack: $14.99

-50% = $7.49
-$5.50 up rewards

TOTAL: $1.99 AND a $1 +up reward printed for the backpack purchase!

Yay!!! I call that a good day!!


  1. That's great, Kristin! I think I really need to learn how to do this couponing stuff... :-)
