I finished my challenge! I successfully spent $150 on school supplies for the Salvation Army! I went to Fred Meyer twice this past week — once on the Sunday of the Fred Meyer Associates Discount Pass weekend and once later in the week.
Here’s the first trip:
I picked up some supply boxes and pencil pockets. They weren’t a Price Blaster, but were affordable and I really wanted to get something different.
Here’s the second trip:
Again, I picked up some items that have not been on a super sale — rulers, paint and scissors.
I am so excited to see what all of you have been picking up as well! Today officially starts the Fill-a-Backpack Reader Giveaway! Fred Meyer is giving a $50 Fred Meyer gift card to four Frugal Living NW readers who have participated in the Fill-a-Backpack giving challenge.
