Saved $30 at Walmart last night!

January 15th, 2007 at 08:26 am

In a way we saved $30 at Walmart last night as a result of using this website and finally starting to pay close attention to our everyday spending habits!
I found a blanket on the clearance isle marked down to $20 from $36 that I put in my basket. Hubby was kind enough to talk me out of it reminding me we have lots of blankets at home and since we live in South Texas how much do we really need blankets anyway!!!!
He talked himself out of two magazines (his absolute downfall) at a tune of $10. So we really came home $30 richer because normally we would have let each other have our "indulgences" just so we could get what we thought we wanted.
I am getting the hang of this now. Scary thought!
Hubby wanted to make a trip to Walmart Sat. night just for deoderant! Reminded him he could just wait until we went the next day and save the gas money.
Bought gas at Walmart saving 3 cents per gallon after putting money on the card and paying for it with the chase card and earning rewards that way too!
Very, very good.
Rolled the rest of the coins for a grand total of $111.00 more or less.
Will have the actual total when I take it to the bank and open a savings account.

    Good work!

    I am find that, for myself, it all boils down to -- buy what you need, at the lowest price you can get it. I really have a problem with stocking up on sale things that I don't need.

    Thanks everyone! This is my first blog so I will have LOTS of questions.
    I am just learning how all this works,
    But so far I really like it.
    I used a quit smoking website called "Quitnet.com" to quit smoking five years ago. Could not have happened without it.
    So I am excited about this saving money website.
