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.

Earth Fare, Costco, Walmart and Dollar General Shopping Week of May 18-24

Earth Fare Trip #1 - I spent a total of $61.49 and saved $15.31.  I was really disappointed in the corn that was on sale 5/$1.  I thought the corn was a little tough and didn't have much flavor.  Grass-fed ground beef was on sale for $4/lb so I picked up two pounds.  At the end of my receipt, there was a survey and once I completed the online survey, I would get a coupon for $7 off $30.  Which came in handy for my 2nd trip.
 
Earth Fare Trip #2 - My total was $27.07 and I saved $13.47.  I used the $7 off $30 coupon from trip #1 and the sunscreen lotion was free with $10 purchase.  I bought some Jazz apples today.  It was my first time trying that kind since I normally stick to Gala.  But the Jazz were from USA and the Gala were from Chile so I went with the Jazz.  Both Bradley and I loved them and were very happy with the flavor and crispness.
 
Costco - I used up most of my sugar this morning making strawberry jelly so I ran into Costco to grab more sugar and picked up a bag of Chicago Mix popcorn.  The popcorn is for game night with friends tomorrow night.  My total was $14.38.
 
Walmart - I was given a gift card from Moms Meet to try out a new brand of chicken.  It's from NatureRaised Farms and their chickens are cage-free, and raised with no antibiotics or added hormones and steroids.  The chicken was fantastic!  I made BBQ chicken last night with it and it was so tender and juicy.  My total spent out of pocket was $4.86.

I rarely stop at the Dollar General store.  But I was completely out of garbage bags and dishwasher detergent.  I didn't have my ECB's with me to stop at CVS so I figured the next cheapest place would be Dollar General.  My total spent was $4.24.


So my grand total for groceries and household items this week was $112.04.
