I love a good deal.
I’m pretty sure even George Clooney is stoked when he gets something half price. Gosh knows that Lindsay Lohan is.
Nothing makes me “high as a kite” than a $4 off diaper coupon. But, I usually forget to use them before the expiry date. Which is a huge buzz kill.
I don’t even want to show you the date on the tub of sour cream in our fridge.
That is why when I was chosen to be part of Walmart Frugal Heroes Challenge. I knew it was something I could handle and complete before the day was done.
Walmart gave me a list of challenges that I could complete or create my own. I really wanted to do a room make over for my Baby Bot’s room, but the stress of actually having to take down his crib, put him in a big boy bed and paint was giving me an anxiety attack and also making me want to have another baby, so I dumped that idea right there in Walmart.
I decided that I would use my $100 to get myself ready to hit the beach this summer. But once I got shopping I realized that I could get myself ready to hit the beach for under $50. I still had an extra $50! So, I changed my mind again and decided to get the ENTIRE family ready to hit the beach this summer!
Slip on beach shoes for a family of four for $23!
Swim suits and hats for the kids for $15!
Trunks for Zed and a swim suit and cover up for me for $48!
Yes, I was surprised that I could get that much for under $100. And want to know the best part? I bought Zed the wrong sized sandals and was able to return them lickity split. Next time, I am going to re do Baby Bot’s room and try not to have an anxiety attack in the bedding aisle at my local Walmart.
