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, Happy Cow, Ingles, and CVS Sales Week of May 25-31

I can't tell you how excited I was about two great deals at Earth Fare this week!  First of all, organic grapes are on sale for $2.49/lb and hormone & antibiotic free chicken is on sale for $2.99/lb.  The sale on the chicken ends on Sunday and the grapes will end on Tuesday. 
 
CVS - I spent a total of $4.10, saved $37.17 and received $3.75 back in ECB's.  I used several of my expiring ECB's to keep my out of pocket cost low. 

Earth Fare Trip #1 - I spent $50.53 and saved $28.15!  A couple splurges were Chocolate Peanut Butter Gelato and Organic Pork Sausage.  My sister and her family will be in town this weekend so buttermilk pancakes and sausage is on the Saturday breakfast menu!  The chocolate peanut butter gelato only lasted about 4 hours in my freezer.  We had it for dessert last night with Dad & Mama G.  It was D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!
 
Earth Fare Trip #2 - I spent a total of $24.70 and saved $23.07.  The pasta was free with $5 purchase and I bought another 6 pounds of chicken.  The grapes were so good that I had to get another pound and the organic blueberries are for pancakes on Saturday.  I should have added a couple more filler items to make my total $30 and I could have used my
$7/$30 coupon.  I didn't get much sleep last night so my mind wasn't thinking clearly.

Happy Cow Creamery - My total was $54.23.  I loved that they had organic zucchini and squash this week!  A full gallon of chocolate milk for my nephews and niece that will be visiting this weekend!  And Bradley is thrilled that we have cottage cheese again in the refrigerator.  It's been almost a week since we've had any and he's been in withdrawal.

Ingles - My total was $21.73 and can you believe that I didn't save one penny??!!  None of the items were on sale and I didn't have a coupon for any of it either.  That is so unlike me that I felt awful walking out of the store.
 
My total spent this week was $155.29.  I knew the splurge on the Gelato would totally send me over the budget.  LOL  Splurges are great every once in a while and since last week I was under budget, the extra $5 didn't really affect the budget this week.
