Anyway, I just wanted to shoot off a quick post about my trip to Target today. I don't have a lot extra of extra money to spend on deals this month, so I only got the really useful stuff and the really great deals. Here's what I got:
- 5 boxes of Special K (this is our favorite cereal and we had just run out at home). I only buy this if I can get it for less than $2 a box. Target had it on sale for $2.95, buy 4 get one free. I had a $1 off 3 Target coupon and two $1 off 2 manufacturer coupons. That made it $1.76 per box.
- 4 boxes of Ore-Ida Easy Fries. Priced at $0.99 each. I had 2 Target coupons for $2 off 2 Ore-Ida potatoes product. So I got them all for free - woopee!!
- Sally Henson nail polish. Priced at $2.34. I had $1 off 1 manufacturer coupon and $1 off 1 Target coupon. So I paid $0.34 for my cool glittery nail polish.
- 2 boxes of Up & Up pain reliever (generic Advil). Priced at $0.99 (for a 24 count box). I had $1 off 1 Target coupon. FREE!!
- 12" Digornio pizza. Priced at $5.99. I had a $4 off 1 manufacturer coupon making it $1.99.
The other thing on my mind today was our escaped hamster. Our 2", tiny, escaped dwarf hamster, that is super fast and we really have no chance of catching. In light of that, I made a little hamster trap. Someone on Facebook suggested I put a tasty snack in the bottom of a bucket then make a little hamster ramp up to the bucket. Hopefully our little hamster will climb the ramp, fall down into the bucket and not be able to get out. Since hamsters are nocturnal, we haven't really seen her during the day. Tim has spied her twice in the early mornings, but never during the day. The trap didn't catch our hamster last night. My fingers are crossed that she'll be hungry and thirsty enough to fall in tonight.
Anyone out there got any other suggestions for catching a tiny hamster?
