Friday this and that

This week just went by so fast.  I am finally getting myself back into the coupon groove. It's been awhile. I'm still not finding much of use for me at Walgreens and RiteAid but I did manage to use $11.35 in coupons grocery shopping today and also price matched Jif Peanut Butter with another store's ad. The 40 oz peanut butter is on sale for $5 each today, and Walmart's regular price was like $6.47. I stocked up on 3 of them. The store with the $5 ad's regular price on the Jif was $8.49.  No wonder I don't shop there regularly!

I washed the bath mats in my bathroom this morning and they literally fell apart. I have had them awhile and washed them quite a few times but wasn't expecting to have to buy new ones today. Oh well. Time for a change of color anyway. I got a really light, almost ice blue color and then swapped the hamper in my bedroom (blue) with the hamper in the bathroom. A little makeover is nice once in awhile anyway.

We finally got rid of one of the old oak entertainment centers that have been in our family room (kind of an unused room, really, other than my desk is in one corner). It was a pretty good sized one and amazing how just getting rid of that (sold on Craigslist for a whopping $20) makes the room look so much better and uncluttered. We have another smaller one we want to get rid of, too, but they are hard to sell. They don't fit the new flat big tv's, so of course no one wants them anymore.

My computer is barely hanging on to life. It keeps shutting down on me every couple of days and I am just praying it lasts the next 2 weeks or so, because apparently that's how long it will be before my new one comes from Dell (ordered by my employer). If it totally dies, I think I can temporarily use my daughter's laptop to remote into work and still be able to work from home. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
