$60 saved today - first challenge money of the year

My aunt has a close friend visiting from Canada. She is a very warm friendly person who quickly made friends with everyone in my family. My mom showed her around NY and they quickly became friends.

Anyway, she is a stylist and she insisted giving us all haircuts(she even brought all her equipment with her!)
So DH and I got our great professional haircuts at home for free this month. So $60 to the challenge - I know these haircuts are more expensive than that, but I am being very conservative.

Even more freebies!

$12.80 today

I went out to CVS on the first day of the new sale and managed to get some of the items on good promotions that would usually be gone by day 2.

Oral B toothbrushes for $1.77, toothpaste, bounty and few non-sale items. Saved: 12.80. Real savings, because I would have to buy these things anyway. They only had like 9 toothbrushes and I bought 5. I somehow felt it would be wrong to take all of them. Like I would be doing something not so nice and somebody may need the savings more than me, and it sucks to come and not find any... I know it may be silly, but is like grabbing all the shrimp from the buffet - allowed, but kind of wrong. Anybody else thinks it is crazy to feel this way?
