Today I paid several bills. $24.00 to renew my two dogs' licenses. $100.00 towards a medical bill. $4.00 to my dentist (Actually, I paid them $108.00, but my insurance reimbursed me for $104.00 of it). And $57.00 for my trash/recycling for the quarter.
I also spent $0.30 today and got four more boxes of Special K at Rite Aid as I was able to print two more coupons. I had to go to two stores because the first store only had two boxes left. The first store charged me the overage but the second one didn't. So, all in all I paid $0.30, got four boxes of cereal, and $4.00 more in UPS Rewards! Rite Aid paid me $3.70 to buy from them! (FYI - I am donating over half of the cereal I am receiving.)
If you are keeping track of my $50.00 a month grocery challenge, I have now spent $17.89 and I have $54.11 left to spend ($32.11 cash plus $22.00 UPS Rewards that must be spent at Rite Aid). Yes, that's right... the total has actually increased for the month thanks to the UPS Rewards!
