After nearly a year hiatus, since my precious baby was born, I am finally back on track using my coupons. I had a very successful first week back. This week I spent $81.04 and saved $186.77. It helped a lot with it being triple coupon week at Ingles, so I probably won't save that much again, but I was very excited. Here is the break down on the different stores.
Picture 1: CVS- spent $6.17, saved $59.88, and earned $4.80 in ECB's to spend next time.
Not pictured 2 blocks of cheese and 1 package of Jenny-O Turkey Franks that was around $5
and 1 lb hormone free ground sirloin and 1.5 lbs hormone free ground chuck for just under $5 total. ( I had a coupon for Bentley's, get 1 lb ground chuck free with any purchase, and of-course, being as nice as he is he gave me an extra 1/2 lb free).

O.K., so I know it has been a while, but I didn't realize how challenging having 3 kids was going to be! I'm not making any promises, but I need to get back on track myself with saving money, so I figured this was going to be the best way. I've had quite a few people ask me for one-on-one and small group couponing lessons, and I am speaking at The Winder MOMS club next month so I thought this would be a good resource for them as well. Feel free to ask any questions and post comments on your quest for frugal living.
Oh, and by the way, you know I had to show off my precious little ones!
My husband and I are 35 and 32 and we have a 7 year old daughter, a 5 year old son, and a 1 1/2 year old son. My husband Ben is a Graphic Designer, and I am a stay at home, homeschooling mom who also works part-time as a home health care nurse and a teacher at Lanier Tech.
Just wanted to welcome everyone to my blog. In case you are wondering about the name, I chose it because of course, Greene is our last name, and we are also really dedicated to saving money and saving the environment. Hope you enjoy and find lots of useful information on saving money and things you can do to protect our beautiful earth God has blessed us with.
