The couponing... oh the couponing, reason three:

I have had a few people ask how the couponing has been going... well I thought it would be best displayed through film:One trip to Kmart while they were doing 2 dollar doubles (they were doing it all week and I returned several times but didn't take pics everytime) and a quick trip to CVS. Total out of pocket for the week: $40.00 value of products purchased: over $220.00 (sorry it isn't a good picture it is hard to get that all in. Oh and we now have 15 more box's of wheat thins and four more rolls of tin foil-- FREE!). What is so funny is my most expensive ticket item was an old valentines heart shaped box filled with choclates that Sam HAD to have-- thats because of you Kristen, he said he wanted to have one like Lucy's daddy :)One early morning trip to Bloom grocery store when they were tripling: out of pocket $7.00. Again they were doing this all week so I now have enough mustard, worsterschire sauce, cookie and brownie mix and mentos gum to last me a LONG time. I should take a picture of under our sink upstairs. I have completely run out of room to store our shampoos, body wash, lotion etc. So I would say it is going pretty well. Especially since I really don't consider myself I die hard couponer. I go when convient and actually have missed lots of sales but hey when your a pregnant mom of two stuff comes up! Thanks Melynda for showing me the ropes and Nicole and Terish for putting up with my endless questions, gripes and confusion!

YOu must be feeling better to be able to shop. My mom just tells me about the coupon deals and I don't go to the store...except for flour tortillas so I can make bean burritos...my cure all.

Where do you get your coupons? I am totally interested too! So Cori told me you made Glen these big cupcakes for his graduation and he said they were the best cupcakes he has ever had. So I am thinking you should email me the recipe. :)

I miss couponing. It was a huge game for me and I was all about winning. It's fun to try and beat your best savings and I love the reaction of the cashiers when they actually have to give ME money back.

They don't have coupons here in Mexico like they do in the US. When there is a sale it's rather odd that all of a sudden the prices look a little tweaked. They'll advertise 25% off of a 50 peso product but you'll swear the week before the same product was 35 pesos and they are just messing with you.
