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 Trip to Ingles Week of August 11-17

I completely went over my $100 budget for groceries this week.  It's partly because I was in a grumpy mood and I just didn't care. The other reason is I'm getting ready for company this weekend and I'm making a Welcome to Your New Home gift basket for a friend moving into her new home this week. 

Ingles had some great sales on lunch meat this week and combining with a coupon made it even better.  I'm putting some away in the freezer and will definitely be making some yummy hot ham sandwiches (recipe to come later) this week for our company.  I also bought my first rack of ribs.  I'm never made ribs before but I'm anxious to try it out.  If anyone has a great recipe for ribs, please share them in the comment section below.  And don't judge me for the large boxes of sugary cereal.  The healthy ones weren't on sale, these were and I had a coupon.  And remember, I was in a grumpy mood and a bowl of Lucky Charms always makes your mornings better.  I spent a total of $110.78 and saved $53.59.
