A Great Spring Day!

This was my last trip to CVS this week I promise..... I've only been twice. Not bad for $2.22, huh? I was down to my last roll of paper towels at home too, so perfect timing. :) And I got $8.98 in ECB back.

Once the kids played outside, were fed and down for their nap, I started listing on eBay. Well, I was scheduling my auctions with Auctiva to be more exact. Anyway, they both only slept for an hour. Grr!!!! Not like my kids at all, they love 2 hour naps. So back outside we went. What a perfect (free) afternoon activity. I have always "worked" and never had so much fun enjoying the weather. This would have been one of those days where I would have drooled on the window all day. The kids and I have been out back, 2 even 3 times a day for the past couple of weeks. Since we have so many outside toys to play with here, why spend money getting out? Take a walk, head to a park, have a picnic, take your crayons or a book outside, the list goes on.....

Before dinner, I worked on both of their closets. I always hate this job. It seems the seasons pass so quickly and they grow so fast! I was quick this time and didn't cry!! Anyway, my daughter is in really good shape for the summer. Between what still fits and what we've already bought. My son is another story. But, most of the fall and winter is packed up in tubs, yay!!

After the kids were in bed, I finally got to finish my eBay auctions. Ahhh, the beauty of eBay. :)

P.S. Here's how my CVS trip went:

Tide $7.99
Bounty $4.99
3 Colgates $8.97 ($2.99 each with $2.99 ECB each)

I used a $4 off $20 coupon from here
$.25 off Bounty from the paper
$.50 off Tide from the paper
$1.00 off Colgate, click here, I used 3 of these!!!
$11.98 ECB ($9.98 from Tuesday and I had $3.00 left from last week)

=$2.22 OOP

Thanks "anonymous" for asking. I just posted the answer at the bottom of the post as a "p.s.".
