I did some speed shopping this evening, as we were out of the essentials. I ran out of ink on one printer, and I could not get the second one to work, so I missed out on the Kellogg’s rebate deal, because I needed more coupons. At least my son’s cereal was still 1/4 of the regular cost. We were rushing to get out of the house, and I did not realize that my tank top was inside out…until I got home:) I misplaced my grocery list and had to figure it out by memory, I almost left Publix with overpaying for FETA cheese, as I had picked up the wrong kind (Same packaging, same look, same type but not crumbled), and I forgot to use my Edy’s coupons.
