I love my relatives

April 3rd, 2007 at 10:07 am

Somewhere along my road of married/motherhood I have become known as Queen of the Coupons. My grandmother and aunt send them to me weekly (one on the East Coast, one on the West Coast). Here was my bonanza for the week:

(1) $20 cash from my D Gma who still helps cover the cost of DS2's Pull Ups (long and arduous journey to diaper-free days.
(2) My aunt sometimes send things in double or triple: this time it was 2 *FREE* 5# bags of dry dog foor, 3 *BOGO* Oh Boy Beef Jerkey (a treat we NEVER buy because one $6 bag doesn't go far) and 1 *FREE* Electrosol Dishwasher Soap.
(3) My parents buy me bananas from Sam's (I complained more than once about Aldi's selection and never pay $.69 #/pound at "regular" store) and I got 3# today.

And last but not least:
(4) My DD9 and DD8's Aunt brought over a pair of Irish Dance ghillies outgrown by her friend's daughter. DD9 will probably be in them by the ed of the summer. Saving to me $39.50.

Good day to you all.

    Cool about the coupons. I usually go through the extras when I visit my parents.
    What's wrong with Aldi bananas? The ones at my Aldi are fine - sometimes they are not ripe but they will be within a few days.

    I love all of Aldi's produce except for the bananas - I must turn up days after the shipment arrives because I usually have only a selection of brownish bagged bananas way down at the bottom of the box! I have been known to blend them with strawberries or make banana bread - sounds like I'd fare better at your Aldis!
