Day 9

$5 donation to a friend's son who is walking to raise money for his school.

$36 on Flip organic nighttime inserts.  Cotton Babies was having a seconds sale and I've recently heard good things about the nighttime inserts.  Pair that with the fact that Adam pees through 10 layers of bamboo AND a hemp babies doubler at night, we need to explore other options!

And finally an Aldi trip (weekly trip made by Tom) with a few extras for Adam's baptism weekend. $65.92 :(

Day 5

Ok at least I warned you yesterday about our Target trip today.  I decided to do the grocery deal again (there was a coupon for $10/$50 worth of groceries, then you could use other coupons on top of it) and we got Tom 3 new polo shirts for work.  Total was $60.67 and saved $63.91. We got A TON of stuff, I didn't snap a picture. 

Also spent $12.75 to ship a package to Tom's sister who had surgery last week.

Day 4

Only mildly better today.  Adam had his 9 month pediatrician appointment so we made a few stops afterwards.  He was a rockstar.

We stopped at Salvation Army because I'm never down that way anymore, and I've found a few good deals there in the past, AND a local babywearing mama found not only a brand new Didymos woven wrap there but also a ring sling.  I haven't been as lucky.
I have most of Adam's summer clothes (or at least I hope I do, size wise), but I've been wanting to get him some T-shirts because how cute will he be running around in his cloth diapers and T-shirts?!  For some reason the t-shirts were decently priced so I got 9 of them for $7.33.  On a sidenote/rant they totally jacked up their prices. They moved to a new building, and things are seriously waaay too much for a thrift store!  I found a brand new package of sandbox toys, with the Target price of $2.50 still on them, and they were asking $3.99!!!  Um, what??? No. 
9 T-shirts for $7.33!!

Anyways, then we stopped at JoAnn Fabrics because I needed some invisible zippers for some pillows I am making (Kelly I PROMISE I am making your pillow soon, but I'm not sure if it will have a zipper because they are kinda tricky on a curve, oooh, actually unless I put it in the middle of the football on the Iowa side of the fabric, let me know).  I used 3 50% off coupons and spent $5.43 for 3 zippers. 

And I'm giving fair warning that tomorrow is going to be bad.  Tom needs new shirts so we're off to Target.  At least there is a $5/$25 coupon available!

Day 3

Ugh. So I got these free "well loved" diapers from Cotton Babies last November when they sent them to me by accident instead of the diapers I ordered. They just told me to keep them, so I thought "Sweet free diapers!" although they needed some work. I had to replace the elastic in each leg and the back of all four diapers and the velcro was shot and nasty, so I decided to remove all of the velcro and convert them to snaps.  I have some snaps, but I didn't realize how many I needed, so enter today's first purchase, $9 spent on snaps to convert these diapers. (Although that's not really bad considering each diaper new costs $18 and I'm converting 4 for $10 total (estimating elastic cost of $1).

Then Target had another awesome deal I couldn't pass up, so I ran in quick on the way home from an EI kid. Spent $11.35, saved $32.01, and received a $10 Target giftcard. Bought 1 pack of Charmin, 2 packs of Bounty, and one Degree deodorant.
