The contest for cool Republican Swag or Cool Swag from Republicans or Can Cool and Republican Be in the Same Sentence Swag is still going on until Thursday night. Be sure to enter a comment to be counted toward the drawing. The post is below this one – Here is a direct link.
But, like at a long family dinner with David, I now need to do something to bring the attention back to moi.
Under the category Things I Never Knew: I ran out of brown sugar the other day. And did you know you can make your own? Add 1 tablespoon molasses for every cup (I did a cup and a quarter) of regular granulated sugar and you have brown sugar. (PH!!! Are you proud of me for figuring this out? Remember our one conversation??)

Pay Me To Shop And I Will:
I haven’t mentioned CVS lately, because I haven’t gone. I figured that into account, of course, and here’s my math:
Number of times I could have gone to CVS this summer: 25
Number of times I didn’t go to CVS this summer: 23
Number of dollars I could have spent each time I went to CVS: $1,000 (I mean, I had the potential to spend that much, right??)
Ipso facto: I saved $23,000 this summer!
What? Isn’t that how you do your budget?
Anyway, all that to say, this week I finally went back. The deals are getting better (why are they better in the fall/winter?) and I had to take advantage! To add to the excitement, I had turned in our points from our debit card for a $45 gift card to CVS and that’s what I used to pay.
Today’s deal was three Cover Girl lipsticks. Get this, CoverGirl lipsticks are on sale Buy 1, Get 1 free this week at CVS AND there was a coupon in last Sunday’s paper for Buy 1, Get 1 Free CoverGirl lipsticks – so both $9.99 lipsticks are free! Then the little lipgloss on the right down there was $5.99, and if you bought it, you got $5.99 back in ECBs (these are like CVS cash, you use them on future purchases as dollars) – so it was free. Not only that, but there was a $1 off coupon in the paper, so they paid me $1 to buy it.
I’m such a nerd.
