…an unexpected check for $559.30! It’s an overpayment from our health insurance from when Sweet Pea was born 18 months ago today. They’re not speedy about sending the refund, but I’ll take it and stash it away in the emergency fund, which is now at $1,040.29!! That’s right, I’ve broken the $1,000 mark, putting me ahead of schedule for meeting my $6,000 goal this year.
Also in today’s mail was a coupon for a free bottle of Exedrin, and I’m going to put the $5 that I would have spent on it into the emergency fund. I definitely would have bought it anyway, so the freebie coupon was a bonus. (A house with two kids four and under is LOUD and headaches happen!)
I don’t normally post deals here, but I’m posting this one because it’s a pretty good money maker. 🙂 Olay 7-signs body wash is on sale for $5.50 each through Saturday at Target. If you buy 3, you get a $5.00 gift card for Target, bringing the cost down to $11.50 for 3. There were $1.00 off coupons in Sunday’s paper, and if you use 3 of them, you’ll pay $8.50 for the three body washes. There is also a $15.00 mail in rebate here. Once the mail in rebate comes in, you’ll be making $6.50, plus three free body washes. If Olay isn’t your thing, you could donate it to a women’s shelter or something like that and write it off next year, using the full value of the receipt ($16.50).
