More Grocery $$ $aved

I just love clipping coupons... I don't care what they say about me :) I know I am saving money. How funny, that the family in front of me had a $125 grocery bill (and no coupons) and my heart actually sank for them. If they only knew what I now know about saving $$! Maybe I should have caught them out in the parking lot and given them a quick crash course. haha

Anyway, I did go to 2 stores this week...only beacuse Bi-Lo had their split chicken breats for $.99lb. I was able to get 12 large breats for $4 a pack! We grilled out with half of those this weekend, and had leftovers for Sunday lunch! So, at Bi-Lo I spent $18 and saved $21 on groceries....

At Publix, I spent $41 and saved $66.74...which gives me a grand total for the week of
SAVED $87.74

Here is a picture of my $41 bill from Publix....

More CVS Savings!

I am just loving this "coupon" game!!! It's so much fun to see how much you can save! this week at CVS was a slow one...didn't save as much as I wanted, and there were a few things I needed that weren't on sale, so that' didn't help out...(if only my little stinker would potty train, I would not have had to buy those flippin' swimmy diapers that cost and arm and a leg...ugh!)

So, my CVS weekly trip today looks like this....

Out Of Pocket Expense $14.54
Total Savings $38.94

Not too bad.

I got 2 boxes of the new Purex laundry detergent sheets, 4 boxes of Kellog's cereal, a box of toothpaste, 3 toothbrushes, and a pack of swimmy diapers (like I said, I would have saved more if it weren't for the swimmy diapers)

Publix trip is tomorrow...can't wait to see my savings there!

Sunday Savings!!!!!

About 4 weeks ago, I went to a coupon clipping class....

Yes, I know, I sound VERY old....only grandma's clip coupons, right?!?...but I like to think of it as very wise.....

In just 4 weeks I have now saved about $300 in groceries and toiletries!

Amazing, huh???

Take today, for instance....I went to CVS, spent $22 out of my pocket....

and SAVED $70!!!!!!!! Yep, bought $97 worth of "stuff" for $22....

And it's things we need....maybe not right this minute, but things that we will eventually need, and won't go bad in the meantime. I am talking, toothpaste, shampoo, toothbrushes, TIDE, dishwashing soap....and DIAPERS! I bought 3 jumbo packs of diapers for $13 today...(they are normally $12.50 EACH)

Here is a picture of the things I bought today. Tomorrow is my grocery trip...can't wait to see what I save.

And, if you are wondering where you can get started, go to !!! It's amazing what you can save!

Beachin' It !

We had a family day at the beach yesterday.... the girls had a blast... and it was fun for Ryan and me to watch them have such a good time. They are such a joy to have around, and are both so sweet and have a heart for others.
