Kroger Smith's Shopping Trip

 I stopped by Smith's for their hot cereal sale - buy 4 GM cereals and receive a $5.00 Smith's gift card to use on a future shopping trip.

The only tricky part is you have to divide your transactions up into boxes of four.  It was not a big deal at all, the cashiers were really friendly about it and it hardly took any time at all.
So I used coupons for .50 cents off each box with the sale price.  Bringing my total per 4 boxes to $8.92 (or a savings of 55%

In total, I paid $35.68 for 20 boxes of cereal and I now have $20.00 cash to use tomorrow morning to stock up on eggs, milk and produce.

Forget the Vacation Fund....

I spent it all and bought a treadmill!

Vacation Fund is now down to zero and starting over...plenty o' time for that...

I wasn't hasty though!  I really spent a lot of time reading, researching and testing out what I wanted to buy after my local gym closed down.  I decided on the Nordic Track C900 model.

Which was $1299.00

(And I only had $950 in the vacation, that put a limit on things...)

I waited until it went on sale for $979.00 with free shipping.
Then I did what comes naturally to me anymore, I Googled "Nordic Track Promo Codes" and I found two that I could stack on TOP of the sale price!

Final price?

Ohhhh yeah! Under budget baby!
Now I just need for it to get here.
