I had another big shopping week this week, where I went quite a bit above my $50-60 budget for the second time in a row. I did include two mail-in-rebates in my shopping week, so eventually I will get $20 back, but I do not calculate this into my actual savings until I spend the gift cards. Since my youngest son and I have been sick all week I kept on postponing my big shopping day, as there was no energy left. However,with a little creativity I ended up shopping quite a bit despite being sick, and I also had some great savings.
