Petsmart has good savings now....

'Live well,shop smarter'.

on pet accessories and bones from XMAS. Rawhide doesn't expire so I bought more when had already stocked up on post XMAS sale bones from Walmart.  I also bought two battery operated candles can put in my window year round as pastoral and spiritual,not just XMASy. Was just a buck. Also go two big boxes of miniature candy canes marked down 75% from $2.50,75 cents each. Don't expire til june of this year. love peppermint and so does my dog so will use up by then. Got Billy Graham XMAS cards n box for next season for $1.25.

Also CVS has free candy with coupon. ( .75 minus .75 coupon. These are good promotions they do to get you in the store so then will buy something else. Usually do this with soda too. My attitude is clear. Any savings is good and can be used for an item wouldn't normally get like treated myself to Seattle's blend coffee for $7 instead of my usually on sale Maxwell House blend for $2.99. Also bough a London broil meat for $11. There is enough for two meals and portions easy. I am content with 4 slices with a salad so.. all good.

Also purchased some liquor like gin,vodka,whisky can mix drinks at home with instead of paying $ 7.00 each for a drink in a bar/restaurant.  Also bought some orange,coconut juices and milk for ingredients. Had bought pineapples in can. Looking for a cheap blender can mix things with. Will try Walmart.
