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.

Groceries Week of December 7-13

Smiling Hill Farm - My total was $13.21 but I also had a couple extra bottle returns which gave me a discount.  We tried the blueberry milk for the first time.  It was okay.  I'll stick with the chocolate or coffee milk in the future.

Whole Foods - My total was $129.09 and I saved $12.49 with coupons.  Not any great sales but I found some new hamburger buns I'm in love with.  They are Whole Foods brand organic white hamburger buns...seriously the best.  We've used them for hot sandwiches and burgers this week.

CVS - this was my first time in a CVS store in about 2 months!!  There isn't one right around the corner like I'm used to.  The Rite Aid is the closest drug store near us but I haven't gotten around to shopping in there yet.  I had some Christmas pictures printed at CVS so I picked up some makeup while I was in there picking up the photos.  My total was $8.93 and I saved $10.  The sale for Almay was BOGO 50% off.  The CVS kiosk printed a $3 off Almay coupon and a $7 off $15 Almay coupon so I was able to save $10 just by scanning my CVS card at the kiosk.

My grand total for groceries this week was $151.23, so just barely over my $150 budget.  I should have put the blueberry milk back on the shelf.
