Last night my husband and I had a date. We went out to dinner and then went to the KAXE annual meeting.
It was a good time. I especially liked that my name tag labeled me as the Northern Cheapskate. It’s a label I’m still getting used to wearing, and it felt good.
I’ve said it before… KAXE is a GREAT radio station (and not just because they give me and my husband a lot of air time!). Last night was further proof of what a great organization they are…. I’m only on the air a couple of minutes a week, but everyone there makes you feel like you are an integral part of the operation. I’ve never been so appreciated as a volunteer before.
Oh, and I got an awesome free tote bag. Way cool. It’s huge.
But anyway…. of course, a night out sans kids also means a chance for me to run a few errands sans kids, so I made my husband go to Target. I was able to stack some manufacturer coupons on top of Target coupons on top of some clearance items, so I was able to stock up on a few things. I got 10 boxes of 3-in-1 Electrasol dishwasher tablets (20 count) for 64 cents each (normally $2.89 a box). I got a 24 count bottle of extra strength Tylenol for 49 cents and a bottle of children’s Tylenol for $2.99 (normally $5.50). I also found boxes of size 6 diapers (Huggies and Pampers) on clearance and was able to get them for 18 cents a diaper. (Normally they run about 30 cents a diaper for that size).
So, I had a great shopping trip, and a great evening with my husband!
