It does not take too much to get me excited about things! And when it comes to money, saving just a wee little bit goes along way for me! One of my newer discoveries that I am loving are the rebate programs from the drugstores (Walgreens, Rite-Aid, CVS, etc). Basically what it comes down to is that each week they have their regular sale items, and then they have their items that are typically on sale for a cheaper price, but then they offer a rebate too! You can obtain the rebate either on-line or through the mail (does anyone do anything through the mail anymore?).
Last week in Michigan, I had some time to run a few errands with my sister, and we went to Walgreens. The following is a copy of the receipt that was jsut emailed to me letting me know my cash back totals. On the items you see listed, i spent a total of 37.28 at the store that day. And now, i am getting, as you can see, over 22 back in a check that i can use at Walgreens, or just cash at a bank! The shampoo and lip gloss ended up being completely free, i got the Tide at a great price, and I got 5 bags of Almond Hershey kisses for 5 bucks. The last item may sound excessive, but it was a bit of a splurge before the diet...

Anyhow, like I said, things like this make me very happy!
