About Us

We are a family of four and a half- Seth, Bethany, Blevin and Caleb and another little man on the way. Seth is on staff with Campus Outreach and I (Bethany) stay at home with the boys and sometimes sell Usborne books and am making some attempt to homeschool. Blevin is almost five and is the compassionate (most of the time) Transformer and super hero loving boy. Caleb is almost three and keeps me on my toes- there is never a dull moment with him around!!

Coupons!!!

So for all of you that know me- you know I absolutely LOVE a good deal!! Well.... I have started joining this coupon craze and I am clipping coupons and only buying what is on sale at the store. I am pretty much only shopping at Publix (which I absolutely Love) and have recently added CVS to my coupon adventure!! So....I have to tell you about all that I got at CVS today for $22.00- Are you ready?

5- 12 pack cans of Diet Coke
1- 8 pack roll of Scott paper towels
1- package of Dunkin Donuts Coffee (French Vanilla- My favorite!!)
1- jar of Peanut Butter (it was not my favorite skippy natural, but it was skippy and it was only $1 with my coupon, so we can eat it!!)
4 -tubes of Colgate toothpaste (2 for me and seth and 2 for the boys)!!!!!
1- 32 oz thing of detergent (some random brand, but it will work)

I was so excited and had to share- i bought what was on sale and then had a coupon for that stuff and used some reward bucks I had!!

Then I went to publix and spent $78 and saved $75!!!!! We have enough cereal and graham crackers to last for the next few months!!!

I am using a website called southernsavers.com and she does all the work and tells you what is on sale and where to find the coupons (you have to buy the sunday paper) I have only been doing if for about 6 weeks, but I can tell that I am saving money and it is a fun adventure- Now I don't want to buy anything without a coupon!!!!! So...check it out and start your own adventure!!!

I stocked up on cereal today too:) CVS does have some good deals this week. I have 11 ECB and am trying to figure out how to best use them and get more of course! I'll have to check out the site you posted. It is kind of like a game now to me and I can tend to get a little obsessed, but at least it has made grocery shopping more fun:)
