Random Thursday

Again, I have gotten off of my posting schedule because I have a very sick little one. Hudson has been throwing up since Tuesday night and it is not getting any better. My heart hurts for my little guy.

My belated weight loss update is a good one-- I lost 1.8 lbs this week and I am 4 pounds away from pre-prego weight. We also had to reschedule our pictures, which were supposed to be tonight, since Hudson is sick. So now I have an extra three weeks to drop some more weight. I'd love to lose 10ish lbs in that time period. I haven't been going to WW meetings, but I have been tracking online. I also haven't had diet coke for two weeks now. I'm not even craving it and I really do think it has made a difference.

One thing that I was ecstatic to know was that CANDY CORN (according to WW mag) is only 4 pts for 29 pieces. I thought I was being a bad girl by eating so much, and turns out, its really not that bad! Well... maybe it is if you eat the whole bag... but if you stick to 29 pieces (or usually less, too much sugar!) it is a good-ish snack.

My savings tip for the week... use of Register Rewards.

Last week, I posted about my trip to Walgreens where I left with a stash of RR. To read about what a RR is click here to read my couponing how to post.

I hadn't used them yet because the deals this last week just weren't that great and I was saving them.

Today, I had to make an emergency "sick" trip (that I discussed previously and that I try to avoid at all costs) and I would have paid a lot of money to get the things I needed and get out since my child was dry-heaving in Walgreens...

I digress...

So I picked up a package of pedialyte freezer pops, a container of pedialyte, two single rolls of ritz and a single roll of saltines (all on sale for $0.99) and a box of velveeta shells and cheese (my hubs' favorite food). Total before savings was roughly $18. The pedialyte was B1G1 50% off and I used my Register Rewards from last week and paid $4.04 including tax.

So I used no coupons (per se) but still saved a heck of a lot of money on things that I needed... and that is why I coupon.

  1. Aww, poor guy. Hope he gets to feeling better soon. Having a sick baby is never fun.

    I have to admit it, I'm a candy corn addict too. Just this morning I had a bag laying on my chest while I was reading blogs ;) Lol

    Happy Monday!
