Before taxes I had over a 50% savings on that little lot. I paid $26.45 including taxes and used $13.74 in taxes. Both the cereal and ground turkey were free. The soap was $2.47 each and I had a $3 off coupon on two boxes, so that came to $1.94 for four bars of soap which wasn't bad. I had never had the Beer and Onion sausages before and they were quite good, not spicy just flavorful. I have updated my grocery total on my right sidebar.
One thing I am busy with is sorting out the baby shower along with dd best friend and a couple of other people. The thing is I can't say or post anything about it as dd reads the blog. So I will have to post photos and details when it's over with. Suffice to say dd best friend is a creative whiz and it will be lovely thanks to her creativity.
On Wednesday I had a trip to the doctor to get some skin tags removed from the corner of the eye lid. The one had gone black so it was going to drop off at some point but it hurt like crazy. As this was a "cosmetic procedure," despite it hurting like crazy and was all inflamed and red, I had to pay $85 to have that and two other's removed.
I read through dh's work's insurance book and have no idea whether I can claim it back? I could have sworn when we first came to Canada this sort of thing was covered by OHIP (government) or am I just imagining it? Granted things have changed a lot in the past 24 years. I know my mother had the same problem and she got them removed at the doctors office for free; this is in Britain though.
I have a number of other skin tags that could have been removed, but as it took two lot's of injections to numb the eye area, I wasn't overly keen on having any more. When I have forgotten how painful this was, which shouldn't be too long, as I am getting more senile by the day, I'll go back and get some more removed.
