You get creative!

When Jay and I found out that I we were moving to VA and we decided I would stay home with Aiden I spoke with Jay's mom about how scared I was to be without my income. She said "It will be fine, you just creative with how you spend your money." I guess you could say I have done that.

Coupons! Coupons! Coupons!

My mom is a coupon cutting machine. She stayed home with my sister and I and she was a freakin genius when it came to saving money. I do remember being embarassed at the store when my mom would pipe up and tell the cashier that their computer was wrong, and she was owed another 10 cents off. I guess I learned a little something from that. And to on to my adventures at Kmart....

Kmart is having super double coupons this week. They are doupling any coupon up to $2. This is uber-exciting to me. I am so excited about my deals this week.

1st trip:

3 Venus razors- $2.00
Baby Powder- $1.50
All detergent- Free
4 packs of Gerber baby food- $0.36
Lil Swimmers diapers- $3.99

Total after tax: $10.04

2nd trip:
Revlon nail clippers: $0.49
Baby powder: $1.50
Soft Scrub kitchen cleaner: Free
Huggies diapers: $5.99
Softsoap body wash: $1.99
Sudafed PE: $1.99
Pledge cleaner: $2.00
Bag of reeses pieces: $0.49

Total after tax: 17.11

Total before coupons: $74.86

Total for everything after coupons: $27.11

Here is a pic of just some of it.

And, just so you know, Kmart didn't douple one of my $2.00 coupons, so I went back in to get my $4.00. My mama tought me well.

Wonder how long it will be before I embarass Aiden.....

I need to start using coupons, but I'm so bad about it. A girlfriend of mine saved 95 bucks off her grocery bill a while ago and then 35 at walgreens!
