I made money on the First Aid Kits and razors…  I probably should have bought something practical like food with the overage, but I REALLY liked the pencil pouch!  So I got it for a make up bag for my upcoming trip home!  🙂

I also went back just now to use some expiring RRs to buy my hubby a padfolio for school/church.  He’s had his eye on it for a few weeks and asked me earlier this week if I would work towards getting him enough RRs to buy it so we didn’t have to spend money out of pocket for it.  He was so sweet and I love that he thought of using coupons for it!  Well, I had $6 that are expiring in the next couple days and I’m really not excited about anything at Walgreens next week so we went and got that for him.  🙂  I am now RRless!  😦

Over all, I did pretty well this month.  It’s the first month I’ve tracked my spending so closely and I’ll be honest with you, I was a little shocked to see that I’d spent so much!  My goal is to get spending down to $100 a month on food and toiletries, including taxes!!  Next month may be a little off because of vacation, but I’ll be sure to keep you up to date on how #’s are looking!  🙂
