Spent way more today than I had planned on; that is the problem with couponing. You seem to have to spend money to save money. When there is a good deal you jump on it and buy enough to last you a while. Yes you save money in the long run but you spend more at the given moment then you intended. If that makes sense.
Take today for example – I decided to go into Superstore to see if there were any good clearance items and there was. I spent $30 on razor blades that we don’t need right now but will need in the future – but I saved $30. Razor blades don’t go bad and you always need them and they rarely go on a good sale – it is an easy one to justify but expensive. Least I controlled myself and only bought 3 boxes, there were many more there that I could of brought home. :)

I figure around $1.00 a blade is an awesome price for good 4 blade razor blade; these were $1.15 each. 3 boxes should last us almost two years – hence why I didn’t buy more. Hopefully there is another good sale before then.

Never used an electric razor so thought I would give this one a try for the price. Bought a second for a stocking stuffer for next year. :)
Think I did pretty good today, even if I spent $45 I hadn’t planned on.
Some quick Walmart deals from the weekend, didn’t think this needed it’s own post.
