I’m not trying to trick you, but today is Saturday. The hub is tailgating for the Texans playoff game, so I figured, Texans usually play on Sunday and I usually post on Friday… why not do a happy medium and not be lazy on Saturday?! Sounds good, right? BTW, Sister is still asleep [it's 2:30 Houston time] just a sayin’.

I went to CVS twice this week, partly because I have been on vacation for the past 2.5 weeks and I forgot how to do math and I forgot 2 coupons at home on the first trip. Cool, right?

The H family, along with two other families, learned how to ski [and snowboard] this Christmas!

C + B

C+B at Sunspot, 10,700 ft.

Me + B

Me + B at Sunspot, 10,700 ft.

If you ever plan to take a trip to Winter Park, Colorado. You must look up Winter Park Lodging, we stayed at Timber Ridge Lodge which had more than enough space for 8 people… and heated floors!

Also, the city of Fraser is about 4 miles away from Winter Park and it has the best pizza at Elevation Pizza [try the Adam Bomb] AND the best snow-tubing hill at Colorado Adventure Park.

Did you do anything exciting for Christmas?

Well, I haven’t made it to the grocery store this week, except to meet with a new coupon buddy, HI KARLA!, but no shopping was done in that trip. I have been craving chili like nobody’s business, even if it is 78 degrees in December, I just love chili… and I have a thing of ground sausage chilling in the refrigerator that calls my name every time I open the door. I did, however, make it to Walgreens to use up some expiring Register Rewards and to CVS for more razors and shampoo… and to use expiring Extra Care Bucks.

Diet Coke

If you don’t know this already, my family is a fan of Diet Coke. Before we hit the Instanity workout, we were up to about 2 or 3 a day EACH. OMG! So, that being said, we racked up the MyCokeReward points like nobody’s business.

For the next 10 days [two have already passed], MyCokeRewards is having specials each day on various gift cards and coupons. Now is the perfect time to spend your points, especially since the gift cards are mailed promptly and you can use them for Christmas presents!

December 1st– $25 Walmart gift card only 600 points [limit 1]
December 2nd – $5 McDonald’s gift card only 90 points [limit 1]
December 3rd – $10 Dominos Pizza gift card only 180 points [limit 1]
December 4th – $25 Nike eGift Card only 500 points [limit 1]
December 5th – $25 TJ Maxx gift card only 600 points [limit 1]
December 6th – $25 Best Buy gift card only 600 points [limit 1]
December 7th – 2 AMC movie tickets and 2 Drinks only 470 points [limit 1]
December 8th – $25 Home Depot gift card only 600 points [limit 1]
December 9th – $50 Southwest Airlines gift card only 1,200 points [limit 1]
December 10th – $50 Bass Pro Shops gift card only 1,200 points [limit 1]
December 11th – $20 Shutterfly eGift Cad only 200 points [limit 1]
December 12th – FREE 12-pack Coke coupon only 30 points [limit 4]

 I will definitely be staying up to get the TJ Maxx gift card on December 5 and Coke Coupons on December 12. I still can’t decide on Home Depot or Best Buy because I can’t get both.

Update 12/5 – I stayed up til 12 to get TJ Maxx, but it didn’t go live for some reason. So I fell fast asleep and when I got up this morning it was already gone, dare you early birds! Looks like it’ll be Home Depot and Best Buy for me!

TOMORROW is DECEMBER, people! Can you believe how fast this year has just flown by?! I can’t because I turn 30 in 49 days and want to savor every moment of my 20′s, my youth. Heh.

This week I felt like this:

Cracker Jacks

Which explains why I have to post this…

Put up ALL the Groceries

…because I was putting away my last box of diet coke and remembered to take a picture – yea, that’s not happening now. I have not been to the grocery store for normal “people who aren’t living on the stock pile” food in about 2 weeks, so I figure it’s about time. When your sick, the last thing you care about is a coupon or a deal, am I right? The stores pretty much owned me, but I now have 5 chocolate bars and 2 pints of Blue Bell ice cream to devour when my tummy stops rumbling. Without further ado, the matchups~>

HEB

4 DiGiorno Pizzas @ $3.50 = $14.00 – 2 $1.00/2 = $12.00

I also went to Walgreen’s on Monday, it was not a glamorous trip – me, Sprite Zero and Pepto chewies. I don’t even know where I put the receipt, but you get the idea, right?
