This is a picture of success.
This is also a picture of success.
The first is what my refrigerator looked like just before I went to the grocery store on Saturday. As you can see, it is basically bare.
And that thrills me to no end!
See, I consider it a personal challenge to use up leftovers creatively so that nothing gets wasted... nothing gets thrown away... and no one utters a single "Do we have to eat this AGAIN?"
Very rarely do I have to throw anything away, but it's not too often that I can plan out everything -- down to the last egg -- so that I can have a clean refrigerator, ready for the next week's allotment of food.
Goofy, perhaps, but I take my victories wherever I can find them! *grin*
The second picture is another CVS victory. By combining sales, coupons, and ECBs, the total for all of this was $21.95.
I got $20 back in ECBs.
In other words, my final total was basically $1.95.
(P.S. Don't tell anyone, but CVS wound up paying me $0.55 to take one of those Right Guards off the shelf!)
