Nothing sparked my interest at CVS or Walgreens, so I just went to Rite Aid to pick up their free after rebate deals that were only good for this week. I didn’t bother to take a picture since there isn’t much and it’s pretty boring to look at.

Samy Pure shampoo $4.99 minus $2 store coupon= $2.99
Aquafresh Extreme Clean toothpaste $2.49 minus $1 manufacturer coupon= $1.49
Colage Total Advanced Clean toothpaste $2.99 minus $1.50 manufacturer coupon= $1.49
Total, with tax, out of pocket= $6.39

I’ll be getting $10.47 back in Single Check rebates.

At the bottom of my receipt, they list a phone number to call so you can tell them about their service and be entered in a drawing to win $10,000. Has anyone ever done these surveys and won anything? I’ve done a good number of them online, but I’ve never won a dime.

A renter’s plight continues

This morning I got a phone call from the woman Jake and I were planning on renting from. The apartment fell through because the gallery next to it decided that it would like to expand into the apartment. The gallery legally has first right of refusal, so there’s nothing we can do, especially since we haven’t signed any paperwork yet. She feels absolutely terrible since she really wanted us to have the apartment. She thought for sure the gallery wouldn’t take over the apartment since the last time she spoke with them, they said they didn’t have enough money to expand. Well, I guess they found some money real quick.

I’m hoping against hope that the expansion project doesn’t work out and that she can offer us the apartment again. In the meantime, we’re back to square one looking for a new place. 😦
