This week's shopping trip

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.
Picture 2: Publix- spent $36.24, saved $64.31.
Picture 3: Ingles- spent $38.63, saved $62.58.

I'm Back!!

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!

Last Saturday's CVS trip

I forgot to post this last week. Last Saturday I made a last minute trip to CVS b/c we were completely out of toothpaste and really needed some good lotion. Here is what I got for $1.67 oop.

This week's $71.54 shopping trip

I went over budget $11.54 this week b/c I had to get a few extra's and I wasn't paying attention. I bought both the TGIF's appetizers for the New Year's Eve party we went to, they were $5 total, plus I forgot to use a $1.50/2 coupon on the Ziploc containers, and I used a BOGO egg coupon and didn't realize it would only take off up to $1.50 and the egg's were $3.13 each. So that accounted for $8.13, so I would have only been $3.41 over budget.
I still feel I did pretty good considering I got a lot of meat including 2 bags of Shrimp and bought organic milk and hormone-free eggs. You can click on the picture to enlarge.
