Before ths past year I was never in a hurry or cared about how much money I was saving. I just thought sale/clearance/marked down & I was doing great!! That was before I started being a SAHM & also before my MIL took a couponing class. Well after a few months combined with a new move to a new town to a new state I decided to give it a whirl. Oh the first couple weeks were tricky with all of the abbreviations (RR, UP, ECB, OOP, & so on) but about my third or fourth week I started getting it down to where our shopping bill would had been $175 + it had changed dramatically on a downward spiral to less than $30 a week.

Yay my heart sings everytime I here the origional total & then hand over my coupons. I get an all warm fuzzy feeling inside when I can give a coupon or two away to someone who I've met that has left theirs at home. Sometimes I have to laugh to myself when the cashier has to look again before telling me my final total purchase cost. It just amazes me that I never believed I could save my family money  time like this before. So now you could say I'm a coupon junkie & I love it.

Once my MIL started sharing her extreme couponing (and by extreme couponing I mean at one point she had gotten over 100 Purex 3-n-1 laundry detergents for free & had no room on her back screened in porch) LOL!!! Not to mention her other free finds!! I had to get in on this to see what I had been missing & I had been missing alot. ALOT OF SAVINGS!!

If you are someone who wants that extra money for your family to have on a rainy day & have yet to participate in the couponing craze don't fret it's really not all that hard once you get the lingo down. Every wek on my blog I post my savings along with pictures of the products & receipts & a simple guide to how I got the savings by showing where to print them or where I clipped them. Along with every Friday I am giving away some of my freebies & coupons to adhere to my NY's resolution to pay it forward in 2011. After all I had to begin somewhere too & sharing well I can only say I wish more people would!! May God Bless you in 2011!!

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
