Coupon Cleanup

I just spent the last 1 1/2 hours, with the help of my daughter, cleaning out my coupon organizer. It feels so light and empty. I see all the effort I spent in cutting out the huge stack that had expired, but encourage myself in all the savings I was able to enjoy.

I'm definitely ready for the big coupons on Sunday, supposedly $345 worth.
(One I failed to mention earlier was a $2.50 off Electrasol.) I've made room, so let's get clipping!!

Amazing Results

This post is to encourage any of my readers who are just beginning and are skeptical about the whole couponing thing. This is not to boast or brag about what I have done, so please do not take it that way. It is meant only to say, "If I can do this, so can you." My goal of this whole blog is to be an encouragement to someone and to exalt Jesus. It is NOT about me.
So, with that said, I was amazed as I looked at my quarterly statement. I have no records prior to October 2008, and, remember, I only began what I term "serious couponing" back in July 2008.

Oct. - Dec. 2008
Coupon savings = $1203.36 = avg. of $401/month
Total savings = $2163.59 = avg. of $721.20/month
Spending = $1152.30 = avg. of $384.10/month
avg. savings percentage = 65%

I am very pleased with the results...I know the Lord is blessing my efforts. My stock pile (I never even had one prior to July) is growing unbelievably. I have enough toothpastes, band aids, shampoo, razors, air fresheners, and Tylenol, just to mention a few, to last a very long time. So much so, that I have begun donating items to the needy. And I know that the Lord will bless that!!!

So, I hope that this has encouraged you to get busy...if you have any questions, please let me know!!

Amazed at the Savings

I just looked at my receipt from CVS dated today, December 31, 2008.
Towards the bottom of the receipt is printed my year-to-date savings of $687.88!!!
Amazing to think that this is just at one store that I shop at.

If I can do it, you can to. If you're new to CVS, read my article maximum cvs savings to help you get started savings lots of money this new year!!

Awesome CVS Savings



Oh, did I have FUN at CVS today.
I bought:
1 Schick Quattro razor $8.99 - $3 peelie cpn - $5 ECBs = $.99 after ECBs
2 Blistex lip balm $1 - $1/2 = 2/$1
2 Pantene haircare 2/$7 - $3/2 cpn - $2 ECBs = 2/$2 after ECBs
4 Dawn dish liquid B1G1 $1.49 - 4 $.50 cpn = 4/$.98

Total ECBs to carry forward $10

I was planning on using my $2 mfr.cpn for the razor when I saw the $3 peelies!!
The manager told me that there will be more great ECB's next week!!

A New Year

As I think about all that has happened this past year, I am amazed at how faithful God has been. He is always with me!! He has protected me and my family numerous times and at times that I am not even aware of. He has provided for us "exceedingly and abundantly above all that we could ask or think". I thank God for how awesome and amazing He is.

Have a great New Year...it will be with the Lord's help!!

Menu Planning 12/29/08 - 1/4/09

Here's a look at our menu for this week:

Monday : spaghetti
Tuesday: chicken roll ups
Wednesday: sloppy joes
Thursday: New Year's dinner
Friday: enchiladas
Saturday: pizza
Sunday: beef stew

Sunday is almost always a slow cooker meal...how much easier is it to come home from Morning Service and have a meal ready!!!

Additional Kroger sale items

In addition to my earlier post on the deals at Krogers this week, I was in the store yesterday and found some other good deals:

Armour Meatballs on sale for $2.50 - $1 cpn = $1.50
Pure Protein bars 10/$10 - B1G1 = 2/$1
Eggo Waffles $1.65 - $.75 cpn = $.65
Johnson & Johnson Buddie Bars are still $.99 - $3/3 cpn = FREE
I have so many of these catalina coupons that printed out when I got them free with the manufacturer's coupons. I am donating a lot of Buddie Bars to our church's food pantry. We cannot possibly use all the ones I've stock piled!!

Kroger P & G Trip

I sat down last night with the Kroger ad, my coupons, and a calculator to plan out my trip to get the P & G specials this week. For every $25 you spend on Proctor and Gamble items, you automatically get $5 off non-P & G items you purchase. So, here's what I came up with:

7 Dawn dish liquids $2.50 - $.50 cpn. = $1.50 each
4 Pantene products (3 shampoos & 1 styler) $3.29 - $3/2 cpn - B1G1 styler free (P&G esaver cpn) = 4/$3.87
5 Crest toothpastes $2.50 - $1 cpn = $1.50 each
2 Nice N Easy haircolor $5.99 - $5/2 = 2/$6.98

My subtotal before cpns will be $55.14.
After my coupons, I figured my oop to be $28.85.
To get the $10 off, I need to buy $10 of non- P & G stuff (very easy for me with 4 kids!!).

Also with this purchase, I will qualify for the $120 in P & G coupons that the company itself is offering. So save your receipt and mail it in!!

I would love to hear from you on how you're planning your trip...even some tips to save more money.

$0 oop (out of pocket ) CVS trip!!!

Went to CVS and spent nothing...I like those trips!!

I bought (or they gave me??):

3 rolls of Christmas wrapping paper $1.50 each (50% off)
