Friday Finals – Kroger, Tom Thumb, Sprouts, Walgreens, CVS

I have been a shopping fool this week. I am over budget again, but I am not shopping next week for sure. Sometimes a good deal is hard to pass up. With prices increasing and the amount on the coupons decreasing, if I find a deal I grab it. However, I think I am buying more wants than needs lately. I need to reassess my shopping and cut back to needs only. Stop by to see the great shopping trips from these fabulous sites from last week. The top clickiest from last week are: Grocery Shop for FREE Lamberts Lately Your Mama Said What ~   ~ […]

Tips 4 Tuesday – Why I Never Shopped at Walgreens. Until TODAY!

One thing you have to realize when you are first starting to coupon is you can’t always get all the deals all the time. There are just too many stores and the amount of gas you would use would offset the saving you were getting anyway. That is mainly why I never shopped at Walgreens. It was too far away for me to justify making a trip out that way to get just a few items each week. Even if it was FREE. Since most of the time the FREE item was gone off the shelf by the time I got there. So all I […]

Friday Finals

I am super busy trying to get my DI team ready for their competition this weekend. I can’t wait to share with you how we do this Saturday. Wish us luck. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I guide them but I really don’t have much to do on performance day except all the darn forms I have to complete. Right now this is my focus and where I love to spend my time. Helping nurture and grow seven 9-10 year olds to become not only leaders, but learn to be on a team. Both very important qualities and a difficult balance. […]

Money Saving Monday – BOGO deals & Coupons

BOGO DEALS & COUPONS Buy One Get One Free One of the best coupon deals is a BOGO deal. Most people don’t realize you can still use a coupon on the item that is full price. Check with your stores coupon policy to see if you are allowed to do this.  Here is how it works, if there is a BOGO store sale and you have a coupon for B1G1. That would make both items for free. One item is a store deal and one is a manufacture deal. Since the store deal is for a free item, the the one you are purchasing is with […]

Money Saving Monday – Grocery Budget

Some of you are wondering how I can have such a small budget of $60 for a family of five and still eat healthy and good food. Here are a few things I do to keep my budget down. I have a ridiculously low budget for all my toiletries per week. Since I have started learning the basics of extreme couponing, I have found I can budget around $5.00 each week on items such as toilet paper, deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, razors, makeup, hairspray, soap ect… This is my budget for all of my toiletries for a family of five. That is $1.00 per person […]
