$10 rebate and other tidbits

October 31st, 2009 at 04:14 am

I love getting rebates in big chunks. The mail today brought a $10 rebate. I think I sent it in less than a month ago, so it was fast too!

We are muddy, muddy, muddy around here. Yesterday brought 3-4 inches of rain, and it was already muddy before that. There is still standing water in our yard in some places, so that mud is just delayed.

I had some nice savings on dog food at Petsmart with coupons they emailed to me for $15 off a $50 purchase. The limit was 2 coupons, so I split my 5 large bags of food plus a few other items into 2 purchases. I had a few coupons too, and then some Purina rebate checks to use. All in all, I spent $53 for $125 worth of food. With 2 bags I bought yesterday before I had the $15/$50 coupons, that should last us 3 weeks.

I've decided to cut way back on my diet drink purchases. Today is day #2 without them, and also without caffeine. I don't know about this. I was dead tired at work today, but I don't know that I can blame it on a lack of caffeine. I've been that tired other days while I was steadily drinking diet coke. We'll see how the weekend goes. I have heard and read that you should drink half your weight in ounces of water every day. So, for example, if you weigh 160 pounds, you should drink 80 oz. of water. That's more than the "8 glasses a day" that I'd always heard, assuming they were talking about 8 oz. glasses. That is A LOT of water!! I think I'd be spending my life in the bathroom if I drank that much every day.

I'm yawning a lot tonight, so I think I'll drop into bed and do some light reading....I'll bet I can't even keep my eyes open for one page!

    Nice rebates and coupon deals.

    On your rebates do you keep a notebook or some log to keep track of when they went out and when to expect them returned to you?

    Once your body competely rids itself of caffeine (in another day or so) and you drink more water you should start to perk up!! Good for you...I need to my body of diet pop, too.

    Good luck cutting back on the diet soda. That has always been my mom's addiction. If you slowly increase your water consumption, you could drink a lot and not increase bathroom visits too much. Smile

    LuxLiving - I (usually) track the rebates in Excel, so I can tell if something I should have gotten never shows up. I also take a quick photocopy of what I sent, so I can see who to call if nothing shows up. Surprisingly, I really haven't had much trouble collecting on anything.

    Great - Keep it up LizaJane. Hubster rebates quite a bit. Not often, but sometimes he does have to ding people for his rebates and/or provide duplicate copies of what he sent in. It happens.

    Lol - I hear you with the yawning due to the lack of soda. You can definately do it! A few days from now, the yawning will stop Smile
