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.

Costco, Ingles, Happy Cow Creamery, and CVS Deals Week of June 22-28

I shouldn't even really say "Deals" this week because it was more of just buying what we needed.  I almost cried when I came out of CVS because I completely screwed up on a deal.  I should have just gone back in and asked for a refund so I could try it over again.  But that's just not my personality....which is why I wanted to cry.  Maybe I just need a break from couponing for a week or two while I just regroup and I'm able to focus better.
 
Costco - I spent a total of $57.14.  I love their organic ground beef for $17.99.  I stocked up on several snack items to take for our picnic lunches this summer.  I love the organic and healthy snacks that Costco offers.  These Fig Bars have been a huge hit with everyone and they are very filling!
 

CVS - My total was $4.76 and I saved $10.28.  If I would have purchased one more soap item, I could have had it for free and received a $10 gas card back. 
Now you know why I wanted to cry.

Ingles - I paid a total of $29.66 and saved $13.75.  When I got to the register, one of my coupons for the cheese had expired two days ago.  Another "I just want to cry" moment.  I was completely out of dishwasher detergent so thankfully the Oxi Clean had a coupon on the bag.  I've never tried this brand so I'm hoping it will work.  They had a great sale on paper plates and I'm always stocking up since we go through a lot of these during Growth Group. 
 
Happy Cow Creamery - I know I took a picture but I just can't seem to find it.  I bought one gallon of whole milk, one gallon of chocolate milk, 1/2 gallon of buttermilk, one dozen eggs, two containers of cottage cheese, one container of sour cream, and one package of salted butter.  My total was $30.44 but I did have a credit of $7.74 for returning some cheese that didn't taste right.
 
Miscellaneous items purchased this week were:  $7.55 at CVS for a case of bottled water (my husband uses these at work) and anti-itch cream for the hundreds of mosquito bites I had. $7.58 at BI-LO for two cans of coconut milk for a new recipe I was trying.  I couldn't believe how expensive canned coconut milk was!
 
My grand total spent this week was $137.13.  I kept it under my $150 weekly budget but I could have done better if I had all my ducks in a row.
