Frugal October Day 4

The new weekly grocery ads for the 2 grocery stores in my town come out on Wednesday.
I always check them online to see if anything on sale is what we need.
We did not need much but I was happy to get
2 bags of potatoes - 10 pounds for $1.50 - we will be eating potatoes often 
big red grapes- 99 cents a pound - got about 4.5 pounds
2 pounds bananas

Ulta opened in my town this summer.
I don't wear a lot of makeup but  at their grand opening,  I got  a  tube of  their light moisturizing foundation and powder.
They are on sale again this month 2 for $10
and I got a $5 coupon in the mail.
So I got all 4 today for about $16.

they did not ring up right but the manager sweetly fixed it to the right price.  

and a quick stop at the thrift store in my town that has the best prices on childrens  clothing
My grandchildren don't lack for much but I like to keep clothes here at our house for when they  come at the spur of the moment or their parents forget to bring everything.

I found 2 shirts for our youngest grandson
a black velvet hoodie, 2 legging pants and a top for our youngest granddaughter
