Happy New Year

Well, I am back. Things are somewhat back to normal around my house so I thought I would start this blog thing finally. I saw in my last post that my dear husband was going to put up a shelf for me.... well..... all my great finds are still on the piano in the basement! Okay, in his defense he has not felt all that great over the holidays.

I have been following lots of diff. blogs and getting some great tips.... it has been fun seeing how much money I can save and how much I can get for free or make a profit on. It is a work in progess for me so thanks to all who have blogs out there to help the newbies like me!

I had two great runs to Publix this weekend that I just have to post! These are my first so bear with me!

This is my first deal of 2009!! I was able to take advantage of several BOGO offers. Here is what I got.....

Total for groceries: $43.10
Total savings in coupons: -$25.20
Total OOP = $17.90

I was thrilled!!! I had so much fun that I went back the next day... this is what I got......

Total for groceries: $25.99

Total savings in coupons: $8.00

Total savings in store savings: $17.00

Total OOP: $5.19!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I won't take the time to break it down...... I am just to tired to do it!!!! It was so amazing to see how much money you can save by spending time researching before you go shopping.

Thanks so much to Stephanie at for the information!!!! I so appreciate all your hard work and that you are so willing to share!

God Bless!
