Target practice

New Year’s day of 2011, my new year’s resolution was to avoid Target like the plague.  I just knew that Target had higher prices and I could get what I needed somewhere else cheaper.  And I did pretty well.  I only went every now and then and mostly just for their great dollar section.  Now … Continue reading

Weekly shopping trip breakdown

  The photo above is from my weekly Rite Aid trip plus my second trip to Harris Teeter doubles.  I got some really random things, but did pretty well!  I always appreciate when people tell me how they used their coupons, so here is the breakdown!

Super Doubles!!

  One of the reasons I had a hard time getting into couponing was because I’d see a coupon for $0.40 and think “now that’s not going to save me much money at all!”  Well, thanks to Harris Teeter, that’s not a valid complaint!  Harris Teeter doubles coupons EVERY DAY if they are under $1.00.  … Continue reading

This brings … Continue reading

Weekly budget #1

So I decided that for the month of April, I would allow just $60 a week for our groceries, toiletries, pharmacy items and meds.  That comes out to $240 a month for all that.  Honestly, that seems a bit high to me, but as this first week of April comes to an end, it’s been … Continue reading

Starting a blog!

Friends & Family, I have been encouraged to start a blog about my couponing so I’ve decided to do a blog about that and other things that go on in this wonderful life of mine – about Life, Love, & Coupons! My husband, Aaron, and I don’t have the most interesting life and we don’t … Continue reading
