I just saved 85% on my groceries and paid 4 bucks + change... I so wish I could do this everytime!.... but I have done VERY well this last week!
Fry's mega shopping event really is helping with it right now... Fry's is a Kroger's chain grocery store .... their mega shopping event is a whole lot of items on sale, and pick 10 save an extra $5 .... and I've been printing coupons for lots of the same things from coupons.com and smartsource.com & all of them are doubled at the store (even thought the coupons say not to double or triple them, Fry's still does it) .... AND... at www.shortcuts.com you can "load" coupons onto your Fry's card, the discount is automatically taken off when the item is rung up
...btw, I am stocking up on Fruit Roll Ups, granola bars, cookie mixes, hamburger mac, etc
........sooooo... this last week is the BEST I've ever done shopping, savings-wise, that is...
*Aug 21st - spent $12.25, saved $46.11 (79%)
*Aug 25th - spent $4.33, saved $24.56 (85%)
I also had a few other coupons for things like free lettuce & $3.50 off my next purchase (since I bought 5 Betty Crocker fruit snacks earlier)..... I'll be shocked if I can keep this streak up next week, but I sooo hope I can!
thanks to my friend, Gretchen, I found a great new blog networking site, The Secret in the Sauce (SITS)... look over on my sidebar for their nifty little linkybutton :)
well, each day a different blogger is featured as the Featured Blogger (FB), today's FB is A Shimmy in My Spirit. I really loved one of her recent posts and I wanted to snag it to share with my blogging friends too :) It's the Dancing Challenge below... enjoy!...
What I Know For Sure..
1. When I dance around my kitchen my mood increases by 15%-20%.
2. Dancing improves my mood and an improved mood effects everything I do the entire day.
3. My body feels so much better when I dance.
4. I'm more fun if I've danced.
5. I eat better when I dance.
6. Dancing is cheaper than therapy.
7. I'm more creative when I dance.
8. I lose weight when I dance.
9. I look better when I dance.
10.I laugh more when I dance.
Won't you join me? How many people do you think we can get dancing around their kitchens?
anyway...... back to SITS... if you want..........join up, grab their button for your blog, check in with the FB on her blog and make a comment on her post at SITS, then leave some lovin' for a couple bloggers above you in the comments.
First off....Congrats to my fabulous Omicron chapter of Alpha Phi. They welcomed 72 new members after an exciting Recruitment! Woo-hoo!!! I love my girls! I can't wait to see the list of all the new girls to see if any are from the Southwest.... or even from my high school back in Kansas City
*********** Congratulations to me!!!! I scrapped THREE layouts last week. What a miracle!!! my boys had little All About Me pages for preschool. We're supposed to attach a pic of the family and a pic of the child, and include their "likes" ... well, last you I followed the instructions as directed
all of the classmates take turns starting this week of bringing home the entire class to get to know them.. and then they are posted on the hallway outside of class for the entire year before they bring them home in May
and........ I also scrapped one for the Speed Scrap I hosted at Gotta Pixel last Thursday...
this is for the speed scrap I hosted earlier today
1st day of preschool this year... Griffin was tracing his name from right to left & very happy about it too (the big scratch on his cheek was courtesy of his brother)
and Sears......... my husband won a $25 gift card to Sears about a week ago. I finally went to the store today and DANG!!!! it was so hard to spend that. I just didn't care for any of the clothes and then nothing else popped out at me... unless it was a few hundred dollars in the electronics dept. After lots of walking around I ended up with a new scraper for the grill, a new square griddle (our old one was kind of sad with a broken handle), and some new socks for by husband. Hopefully his next gift card he brings home from work will be for The Gap or Target. I could spend one of those so super fast.
ok.. now just wish for my nose to stop running... I'm so tired of this cold!
and....... don't forget............ I'm offering you one super fantabulous can't beat offer...... You can buy my entire store at Gotta Pixel, valued at over $250 for only $25 until the August 29th................ BUT...... this weekend GP is having a huge back-to-school sale... so that means my fabulous bargain of buying my whole store is even cheaper!!!!!!!! crazy crazy I tell you, but so true! It's only $15through the 24th. Go mad crazy and enjoy!!!!!!!!!!
ok......... I was sooooooo thrilled with myself today! I saved 79% at the grocery store today with their mega sales event, buy 10 participating items, get $5 back. I added a bunch of coupons on top of this too. Sooooo... I saved $46 and paid $12! soooooo very cool!
