After weeks where I have avoided shopping as much as possible, I finally realized that I needed to do a lot of shopping this week, as we kept on running out of the basics and the fridge was very empty. I dragged my three boys all over town, mixed shopping trips with playground stops etc., and I did get it all down. We even got their back-to-school hair cuts done for free at JCPenney, and we got lots of free school supplies, but grocery wise I went way above my regular $65 grocery budget.

  1. What great deals on the Office Depot! I will try that next time and see if they give us a couple more. Never heard about Office Depot rewards awesome trips!

    • Thanks Emmie, it never hurts to ask is my philosophy. Sometimes Office Depot have items, where they give you 100 percent back on items you buy. Say you buy a stapler that costs $12 with 100 percent rewards, then they’ll give you $12 in your account back. Every quarter they will then send you a reward certificate with this amount.

      They have batteries with 100 percent back once in a while, and this I love!

      We usually earn rewards by handing in our used printer cartridges.

  2. Your week sounds like mine running all around town!!! Glad to know that I wasn’t the only one running out of food in the house 🙂
