A Great Valentine's Day Gift and a Challenge

My mom for Valentine's Day gave me a $5.00 gift card to Rite Aid. Her and my father laughed and said I could make that $5.00 into $50.00. So I figured what the hell why not give it a try.

Miss Baby snuck into the background. Isn't her little pink wool sweater cute with that blue turtleneck. Her whole outfit cost about a $1.00. That's my thrifty girl.

The toothpaste was $3.50 but i got $3.50 in uprewards to use later

The hair mouse was 50% off so it was 3.49. I had a $3.00 coupon off so it was $.49

The lotion was $2.99 with $2.00 in uprewards to use later and I had a $1.00 coupon off.

My coupons weren't ringing in the register was having an issue. So I could have made $1.00 but the other coupon never rang through correctly.

Total: $5.98

Total Back in register rewards $5.50

So I spent $.48 cents of my gift card :)


  1. Would you like to do my shopping too? ;o)

  2. That's our girl we knew you could do it.
    Love you Miss Baby

  3. Wow, are you brilliant at bargains. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
