{pencils & crayons & glue sticks, oh my}

Guess what friends!!  It’s back to school time already! Ahem….okay it’s not actually time to send the kiddos back to school.  But it is time to start stocking up on school and office supplies. Once a year us savvy shoppers get to stock up on enough school and office supplies to last us the entire year […]

{a lesson in frugal shopping}

This post could just as easily have been titled “my disappointing day at the stores”.  But really and truthfully, it’s not that big of a deal…and it’s definitely not to first time I’ve written about my less than stellar shopping experience. If you’ll recall my shopping list from earlier in the week, you’ll probably notice that I was NOT able […]

{shopping results ~ 7/1/2013}

As promised, I’m here to share my results from yesterday’s grocery outing.  With everything I was able to pick up yesterday added to the $160 we spent last week stocking up on all different kinds of meat, we will be completely set on food for at least the next month….possibly longer. So, I mentioned that […]

{time to shop – 6/30/13}

I always find it very interesting to check out the sale ads for the different drug stores each week.  In my area we only have CVS and Walgreens as options.  Last week the “extreme” deals were primarily at CVS.  Their sale made it possible to get tons of stuff for free or seriously cheap.  This […]

{saving money on “the basics”}

If you follow my page on Facebook, chances are you saw this picture pop up last week.  Make no mistake about it….I totally danced a jig in front of the refrigerated section at Kroger when I came across these gallons of milk for a whopping $0.99 each!!! I’m often asked by those who know me […]

{ 01/06/2013 ~ Shopping Results }

It’s been a really long time since I’ve posted results from one of my shopping trips.  The main reason being that I took several months off from couponing.  But I knew that I was really looking forward to getting back into the swing of things once the holidays were past us.f Today I went to […]

{how i saved $25 without using a single coupon}

I’ll be honest with you.  I really can’t stand shopping at Walmart and I try to avoid it at all costs.  There are certain things that really are less expensive there if you just have to purchase something immediately and can’t wait for a sale elsewhere.  But one way to save money at Walmart is […]

saving money on food {day twelve}

In today’s tough economic times, it can often seem like our paychecks fly out of our checking account almost as soon as they reach them.  For anyone that this situation applies to, financial stress can play a big part in your everyday life.  So, today I am looking at ways to be more intentional with […]

free is always better…
