They really do. Sometimes I stress myself out like I can't go to the store without a coupon for everything I want to buy or need. My des...
Sometimes Coupons Stink
I assessed my leftovers from Freddy's birthday party (pictures coming soon) and what items I'd picked up on sale last week then I made my list. I spent $28.91 and we have meals for six nights! I'm well pleased with myself & that both children made it through the trip with minimal drama. Addie rode in the carrier Andrea let me borrow, and Freddy sat in one of those awesome carts with the two seats built into the front. I got stuck in multiple aisles unable to steer the beast, but onlookers gave me winks and nods as if they somehow remember what it was like to have two young children & need groceries! What's really funny is when the cashier is greeting me absent mindedly then looks down to see a baby attached to me. She said, "Oh my God, how cute!" I thought that was a bit extreme myself, but Addie does this to people.
I hate to post with no pictures or deals to speak of, but sometimes, thems the breaks. I was home sick with baby girl yesterday and I made some homemade pita pockets I found from a link on MoneySaving Mom's last backing (correction/baking-thanks Kristina) day. Only half the batch worked but the rest made great pita chips, now if only my homemade hummus didn't taste like powdered glue!

Coupons- I used to think they were the devil. They only caused me to buy things I wouldn't have in the first place and buying store brands was cheaper. Then I discovered this whole internet world out there of couponing. Apparently, there are some stores that do double coupons and you can match coupons with store flyers to get extra awesome deals. Oh, and you can double up store coupons and manufacturers coupons to get more savings as well. There's also this awesome idea of planning your meals around what's on sale and what you can save the most on...which is a work in progress for me. I'm used to planning my meals and then buying from a strict and specific list.
LR Stores that I have confirmed Double Coupons:
Kroger- Everyday up to .65 cents. This means your coupon can be .65 cents and they will give you $1.30 off.
Fred's- Saturdays only up to .70 cents.
Good places for printable coupons but oh the pain the butt coupon printer download!!
