Quick Coupon Trip September 30, 2011

Hi everyone! Yes, I have been neglectful of this blog lately! But, I will tell you that I am working on some great stuff for it, and hoping to expand to a networked blog soon. Hang tight with me!

So, I am going to leave you with my quick run into Wal-Mart today for a few items.

Please excuse the quality I used my phone to make it faster.

My total for this trip was $25.94.

I had $14.00 in coupons (made $1 on each of the razor packages). = $11.94

Plus there is a full product rebate for the puppy pads so that is minus $6.94

So at the end, this cost me $5! That is a savings of about 81%!!!

I also ran to Price Chopper quickly, did 2 transactions totaling $41.51. Ended up paying $19.62. Savings of  about 50%.  How would you like to save 50% or more every time you hit the grocery store. Subscribe to my blog and I’ll be showing you how!

Good morning friends. I know I have been so lax about posting but that is going to change. I PROMISE! So, a couple of projects I’m going to post the next few weeks:

1. Organizing a chest freezer! Does it take you a very cold hour to find that ground turkey you need?

2. Organizing canned goods… whether you have a pantry, or like me deep cupboards in your kitchen, you need to know whats in there to be able to use it up!

3. And the big project? Finishing the painting in the kitchen!!!!!!!!! WHOO HOO! This is going to be a great one!  I’ll show you before and after if I can dig them up.

This is just a few of them… there will be more posts that this!

There are going to be TONS AND TONS of projects happening here in the next year. It’s going to be awesome! Just wait!

And if there is something you want me to blog about tell me! I love ideas! (And exclamation points!)
