What I Can Do With $20 and 2 Hours

My coupon buddy called and asked if I wanted to head out to coupon hunt. With the temperature expected to be in the forties, my cleaning can wait, besides the Doc is home and he can hang out with the girls. I told Melissa I wasn't spending anything more than Twenty dollars.

Bandaids off the clearance rack 3 @ $1.50 less $1.00 coupon 2/7=$.50 each
Contour Glucose Monitor $18.82 less $18.82= FREE
Breeze 2 Glucose Monitor $18.82 less $18.82= FREE

I can't believe I came with change left from my $20 and I got all this.
I was able to save with coupons, buying on sale, price matching an amazing $194.20 and had a couple of hours out with a friend while Dad hung out with his girls.

Figuring a salary for my time that makes it $97.10 per hour and of that time an hour was driving to the store and back.
