About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Grocery Shopping...Saved $52.32

I went grocery shopping this morning with both the boys.  I only had about 3 hours of sleep last night so I was a little concerned about how the trip would go and if I would overspend.  But I stayed within our budget and spent $56.87 and saved $52.32.  Being organized is the key to successful grocery shopping especially when taking children with you.  I had already browsed the circulars so I knew what was on sale and what I was going to buy.  My coupons were clipped and I had them in a separate envelope so I wouldn't have to go rummaging through my large coupon binder.  Some of my favorite deals were Brach's candy for 15 cents, Chinet plates for 57 cents, Mount Olive pickles for 34 cents, Arm & Hammer detergent for $1.69 and Smart Balance eggs for 99 cents.  I was able to stock up on some chicken breasts, ground turkey, and steak that were all on sale or on clearance.  So it was a great shopping experience to Ingles and Bi-Lo this week!
