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.

Ingles, Earth Fare, and CVS Grocery Sales Week of March 23 - 29

I was home bound most of the week since Bradley started potty training this week.  I'm proud to say that he is doing MUCH better than he was the first two days.  And I'm very proud of myself for not throwing in the towel after day 2.   Anyway I stayed under my $150 weekly budget and my total spent was $143.43.  I have to pick up two ingredients tomorrow for dessert on Sunday night for Growth Group but that will only cost $3 so I'll still be under budget.  Maybe staying home all week wasn't so bad after all!
 
Ingles Trip #1 - I had so much fun on this trip.  The boys were in great moods (could have been due to getting their free cookie) and I had my list and coupons all organized.  I was in and out within about 20 minutes.  My total was $38.13 and I saved $38.98!!
 
 
Ingles Trip #2 - I didn't get a chance to take a picture.  I bought one loaf of La Brea Bakery bread for sandwiches, 5 pound bag of organic potatoes, 3 organic sweet onions, and 4 packages of Amish Country cheese.  My total was $25.29 and I saved $1.56.
 
Earth Fare - I was very excited about their chicken breast on sale for $2.99/lb.  I picked up their limit...6 pounds.  It was my first time buying Rudi's Organic bread and I'm in love!  It was so delicious and it has 24 grams of whole grains per slice!  I spent a total of $51.64 and saved $19.46.
 
CVS - I spent a total of $28.37 and saved $57.72!  I was very happy with the savings but so sad I didn't buy any items qualifying for ECB's.  So I'll have to start all over with my ECB's on my next shopping trip.  I'm caught up on laundry products for awhile with their BOG2 sale on both the All detergent and Snuggle fabric softener.
