Stockpiling items Week 1/20

Boy, last week sure has been a fun week. Between a snowstorm and Polar Vortex, we were stuck indoors for 4 days. However, I prepared for this when I saw that forecast. I did all my grocery shopping the week before, to make sure we won't need anything.

I also combined some qs and sales to stockpile some items.




Meijer had the Loreal items Spend $15+ save $5 instantly. I've used this moisturiser since college and I can only find this item at the grocery store. They also had digital qs for the moisturiser and shampoo/conditioner, which came in handy since we don't get the RMN inserts.

Another big surprise was the $13 ($5 & $8) off anything qs on DH's mperks account. I'm guessing it's cause I haven't used that account in a long time. I used the $5 on groceries before.

Slightly less than I would pay for one moisturiser. I now have enough moisturiser to last the rest of the year. I still have one sealed bottle from a Target deal I did in December.

Wags made me broke over the course of 2 weeks!

Friendly warning. Long post, so grab a drink.  I apologise that this post is so late. I've been under tremendous strain the past 2 month...
