new dress & walgreens trip

[me and my next door neighbor Marsha]

On sunday (3 days ago) i went to my neighborhood block party for a bit. My neighbor named Linda, hosted the party, taking donations benefiting an organization that helps homeless families. I was happy to see that part of her driveway was just filled w/donated items! I met alot of cool ladies and i just meeting new people, so enjoyed being there for a while. I wore my *NEW dress that my friend Rachel E. made me. I happened to purchase the teal-ish colored shirt from kohl's for like $3 and it matched perfectly w/my dress.

yesterday, I went to walgreens w/sofia and this is what I snagged! I spent $17.71 (with 3 transactions). Between RR [register rewards], manufacturer coupons, in-store coupons and items being on sale, i saved $48.06!!!. I was pretty dang happy. It may not seem like I got alot of items, but 2 big rolls of Christmas wrapping paper, 10 gift sacks and named brand items, duracell batteries, i'd say was pretty good! Oh! and one more Eco Tools Blush brush is missing from the pic!
