a) We had a Maine Coon cat for 16 years – my sweetie!!!! Did not get him on
purpose and he was likely not purebred. I was there when he was born (at a
friend of a friend’s house) and mentioned to the kids how I loved kittens –
etc… Went home and thought nothing more of it – I couldn’t do pets just
yet anyway. 6 weeks later these kids followed me all over Albertsons
convincing me that I just had to take the last kitten. Home he came….
b) I get $300 of groceries for well under $100 routinely. $5 might be a
stretch (altho not always). And I use the Sunday ads. Trick is to use the
coupons in conjunction with store sales. Case in point – Darigold yogurt is
2/$1 right now at Albertsons. The Sunday paper carries a $1 off 2 coupon
for Darigold yogurt. Total cost of 2 yogurts = $0. I have my Sunday paper,
and all my co-workers (single men who don’t eat at home) Sunday papers. The
coupon is disguised with a picture of a much more expensive “new” Darigold
yogurt brand on it, but the fine print says “any Darigold yogurt product.”
The Albertson’s clerk looks strangely at me when I walk out with 10 yogurts
without paying a dime, but it works. And this Sunday’s ads might not match
up with the store sale – you need to hold your coupons until the right
time. I also got $10 of Pillsbury cookie dough for $6 (coupons + sale =
$1.50 each), and in addition, Albertsons was giving free pairs of movie
tickets for buying 4 items of a certain brand. So, I got two movie tickets
($19) + 4 sheets of cookie dough for the kids for $6. They paid me $13 to
come home with cookies, in effect.
