Giant Eagle Shopping 11/23 and 11/21

Tuesday, November 24, 2009 Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »
Well I had some snafus, but nothing that can't be fixed, I hope. lol I also have no pictures as I didn't get home until midnight. We left the house around 6:30. I'm still exhausted and can you believe my quads are killing me! I so need more exercise when a shopping trip causes muscle soreness. Maybe I need to shop more! ;-D

Just so you know I actually didn't spend all that time shopping at Giant Eagle. LOL I spent an hour plus on travel, had to drop off and pick up Jeff and kids at his mom's, a Wal-Mart stop where I had to figure out what to do since the Honeysuckle that was to be price adjusted was gone and a visit with my SIL.

Now that I bored you with the details not pertaining to GE I will give you the rundown of my GE transactions:

Quick Version:
Value $380
OOP $74 (after I subtract the $6)
Savings 81%
Shorted Catalinas 7*$3($21) Note to self; Make sure all items are rang individually.
RC Mess Up and shorted $6; I still have to go back for a refund
Still waiting on 8*$2 Cats from a previous sale

Have $5 Catalina left

Long Version:

Transaction #1
60 Swiss Miss
21 Orville Redenbacher Microwave Popcorn
20 Energizers AA 2 pk
8 Hefty Plates
2 Hefty Trays
1 Reddi-Wip
Spent $43 Savings $194 (82%) Received 10*$3 Cats Missing 7*$3 Cats

Transaction #2
4 Dawn
Spent $.52(tax) Savings$12 (100%)Received $5 Cat

Transaction #3
4 Dawn
Spent $.52(tax) Savings$12 (100%)Received $5 Cat

Transaction #4
10 Ortega Taco Seasoning
10 Birds Eye Boxed Vegetables
7 Hellmann's (RC)
4 Tollhouse Cookies
4 Organic Milks (1/2 Gal)
4 Stove Top
3 Dawn
2 GE Butter
2 Sugardale Precooked Bacon
2 Eggland Eggs Extra Large
2 85% Lean Ground Beef
2 Bunches of Bananas (3.19 lbs)
1 Red Leaf Lettuce (1.04lbs)
1 Organic Carrots (1lb)
1 Container Grape Tomatoes
1 10lb Idaho Russet Potatoes
Value: $124 Spent $38 Savings $86 (69%) Received $5 Cat
Shorted $6 So really Spent $32 (73%)

Typing out the list looks so small; wish I had a picture to capture the amount of groceries.
I had to leave the store and go back in since the first cart was overflowing even using the bottom rack. I don't think I've ever had to do that in the past even when I shopped once a month. (!) Never had the savings either and I thought I was a savvy shopper then. LOL

I forgot to add my husband's trip from Saturday. :)

4 Mr Clean
2 Honey Wheat Nature's Pride
1 Celery
1 Sweet Onion
Total Value: $20 Spent: $8 Savings $12 (60%) Received $5 Cat

Mineral Monday ~LaurEss ~Sale

Monday, November 23, 2009 Posted In , Edit This 0 Comments »
LaurEss! This is my very favorite make up especially the foundations. Along with the foundations, I can recommend the blush and shadows too. I have not try any lip products or finishing powders because I always use pure silk or whip my own concoction for finishing powder.

Foundation First:

Minimalist ~ My favorite It provides a nice buildable coverage that hides pores better than others I've used and blemishes too, yet it doesn't feel heavy. The color selection is vast.

Elemental ~ Barely comes in second This coverage is slightly lighter and just the slightest hint of dewiness. This would be perfect for me in the Summer.

Ethereal~Favorite for Others, but surprisingly I don't like this. (?) This is the heaviest coverage.

Many beautiful shades to choose! Make sure to click on each category to see all the colors.

Eye Shadow: This eyeshadow just glides across my lids. Gem Lights is my favorite because those are pearlized, but not sparkly or glitterly.

Lauren is a fabulous owner that works beside her husband Chris. Lauren is meticulous when it comes to creating her line and it shows. There is also a group link where you can ask her and others questions or if you'd like personal recommendation you can email them. I don't know when the sale ends because this sale has been extended from the original ending date. You will save 10%-20%, this includes samples and the great thing about LaurEss is the prices are already adjusted so there's no figuring or guesswork for you.
