Walgreen's RR Deals

There have been some great register rewards deals at Walgreens THIS WEEK. A register reward is a coupon that prints out after you buy a product that can be used at Walgreens for a specific amount. It is kind of like Walgreens money :) Sorry I haven't mentioned them I've just been busy.

18 packs of scrunci's are 2.00 this week and are giving a $2 RR
ChapStick brand ChapStick is 2.00 this month and is giving a $2 RR
The Colgate Max White Toothbrush is 3.50 and giving a $3.50 RR
New Skintimate Moisturizing Cream Shave is 2.99 this month and is giving a $3.00RR
Unilever products are giving a $6 RR when you buy six. This had included the .99 cent trial sizes of dove or degree deo

This interesting thing about this is that you can actually "roll" RRs if they come from seperate companies. So I can buy scrunchis for $2.00 and then use my 2RR in a different transaction to buy ChapStick, costing me just tax and getting another $2RR. (sometimes you have to throw a filler in...especially in Illinois. They have these pesky little rules where I live about coupons not covering any of the tax.)

Egg Suit!

This weekend I bought a maternity bathing suit at the One Week Boutique. I'm only going to be pregnant for four weeks of our pool being open so I didn't want to spend a load on something that would barely be worn. I found this pretty cute brown suit there, never worn, for super cheap and so I bought it. Today I tried it on. Little E came in and started laughing so hard. I said, "Sweetie what is so funny." He said, "the bathing suit." I said, "What is so funny about my bathing suit." He grabbed my huge baby belly and said, "you are so fat in this bathing suit," and then he just kept laughing and laughing and laughing. Wow, thanks kid!

March Madness

March Madness has finally come to an end. Dr. J and I watched UNC tromp Michigan State last night in what I would have to say was some mighty sexy b-ball. Ok enough. I want to be cool like the guys on Dr. J's blog but man describing basketball with the word sexy, well that just seems wrong :) It was an interesting game for me though. It was four years ago that we watched UNC take down our beloved U of I team. I'll be honest, I cried off and on for two days after that game, and I will admit that I took joy in the fact that UNC underperformed in the last three tourments, but last night something changed for me. The first half of that game was like magic. The way they play, well it was incredible. Some of my good feelings probably came from the fact that I had UNC winning my braket. So here is to UNC on their newest National Championship, and here is to me and my braket! I finished out in the top 10 percent on yahoo and I only had one braket, unlike some people I know who had five or ten, hmmm. It didn't net me a million bucks and I was twelve picks off from the leader, but it sure was fun to beat out 90% of the other brakets! Maybe next year I can get up into the top 5 :)
