Well, I have been snipping out coupons like a mad woman…all of my scrappy scissors have been repurposed to coupon clipping…thus saving [making] me money. Talk about a rush!! Friend Stacey mentioned something on her blog awhile back about thegrocerygame.com and I was just curious so I checked it out. Coolness. I can’t use the game because I don’t have any "list" stores–but there are lots of good tips and coupons at that site. I also have found great info at moneysavingmom.com and hotcouponworld.com. WOW! I’m hooked…
My first two "couponing" trip to Walgreens saved me $40 on a $90 bill. Yaahooooooooooo!!! Thats nearly half!!! Last night, I saved 30% on my bill at Wal Mart! Whoa nelly! I know, I sound like a total nerd, but come on people– gas is nearly $4 bucks a gallon, Mama’s gotta cut some corners, you know! And really, its just such a fun challenge to SAVE! It does take a bit of time to look through ads and clip coupons…but its totally worth it to me. We really like to have family meals together and I do like to cook– Good for the family budget…good for the family…good things.
Oh and I’ve been sewing…with my sumptious HB Freshcut fabric stash! Oh…its so fun! I can only show you a peek because this project is for a mag but here’s a teaser! I designed the pattern and everything…love it!! SO FUN!! Its a great project for the beginner/intermediate seamstress!
Okay…time to go! Gotta make hay while the baby sleeps! Have a blessed day!
