Weekly HT trip

As embarrassed as I am to admit it, when I sat down to organize my coupons this week, this is what I had to work with: Yep, I had THREE weeks of newspapers that I hadn’t even opened yet!  We’ve been busy and I just haven’t been able to catch up.  But, I was able … Continue reading

Weekly update (minus HT)

After looking at the deals for Harris Teeter this week, I decided that nothing was an amazing deal and since we’ve got a lot going on lately, I didn’t think we needed very much.  I hate to stock up our pantry if we know we’ll be doing a lot, so things don’t go to waste. … Continue reading

Harris Teeter weekly trip

Oh Baby!  Harris Teeter had tons of baby things on clearance this week which made for some great deals.  We have lots of friends who are having babies soon so we were able to stock up for some gifts!  But, I’ve had to blur them out just in case friends are reading who might receive … Continue reading

The end.

Remember this sketch?? Well, the built ins are FINISHED!  I can’t even believe it!  I am so incredibly proud and grateful for my husband when I look at these.  I drew my little sketch and he built it all himself!  I couldn’t have asked for anything better!  We are so in love with this room … Continue reading

Aldi trip & HT Super Doubles trip #2

We needed a few “basics” this weekend and I find that Aldi is the best place to buy these things since they have the cheapest price on produce and cold items.  Here’s how we did at Aldi.  I also threw in some comparisons to HT to show you much better Aldi is with their prices: … Continue reading

HT Super Doubles! Trip #1

This week is Harris Teeter Super Doubles so my friend Meredith and I went this morning at 6am to grab what deals we could before checking out at 7.  I didn’t end up getting quite as many free items as I would have liked, but still ended up doing pretty well.  I can’t be sad … Continue reading

Etsy shop!

Well, I joined the bandwagon and started an Etsy shop!  I’ve loved Etsy for a long time, but didn’t really like the idea of having to ship things to someone else across the country so I never considered starting a shop.  Well, I recently realized that I could sell FILES – no shipping required!  Since … Continue reading

Blog updates!

You may have noticed already that I’ve done a little updating to the blog.  I added some photos down the side, added my twitter feed (would love for you to follow me!), and added a “follow my blog” section.  If you feel so inclined, I’d love for you to follow me and get updates whenever … Continue reading

Harris Teeter weekly trip

Another pretty good week at Harris Teeter.  You may have noticed that I haven’t been doing a lot of other stores lately.  I’ve come to find that I don’t need many other stores!  Last month I didn’t go to Target or a pharmacy once and just grabbed a few things from Food Lion or Aldi … Continue reading


My goal with couponing has always been to save us money.  I’ll admit that didn’t work so well at first because everything looks like a good deal.  Now that I’ve been doing it for a while, I’m a lot better at figuring out what a good deal is and how to manage my couponing. I … Continue reading
