Budget Boot Camp Challenge #11~Rolling Rewards

I am a little slow getting this up this week.  We have been suffering from strep again..... More on this later this week.  
The challenge this week was "rolling rewards".  You can read more about the challenge over at In Good Cents.   Something I found very tricky when I first started but now I am a pro--haha!  Actually my favorite place to get rolling rewards is Target.  They have great sales that offer a $5 gift card when you buy certain items.  This week  Target had a few items on this deal that I needed.  For example Downey was buy two get a $5 gift card.  So I had 4 coupons (because I get 4 Sunday papers) they were for $1.50/1 from the P&G insert and so I got 2 $5 gift cards.  I shopped this sale the last time and my supply lasted until they went on sale again.  Hooray!   I am far from getting my stuff for free but I love having those gift cards to use on my next trip.  
I also try to shop the sales at Smiths that are buy "x" amount of items get $$ back instantly which saves me a lot on my shopping trips.  Overall I have noticed a significant amount of savings in my budget in just the few changes I have made over the past few weeks!
