Time To Be Impressed

There are things in life I am impressed with myself over. Things like giving birth to six kids and managing to still have a below average size rear end, keeping my kids alive and safe in this huge world as a single mom, making an A on a really tough assessment. Things like that. Today I impressed myself again. I got all of this...

shampoo, conditioner, 2 toothpastes, a vine, movie, outside broom, chicken, carrots, and potatoes for $14.67. That is right. Over $54.00 of stuff for less than $15. That isn't counting what I saved just buying the stuff on sale in the first place. I felt a little guilty to be honest. But then I thought, hey they are the ones that put out the coupons, and if I actually am willing to clip them and stand in line with that many coupons, then I should do it. Why not? My husband works hard for our money. Today I think I spent it well.

NICE JOB!! I never remember my coupons! (and we don't take the paper so we rarely get them in the first place). (and if you realized the mark up on most of the products we get, you wouldn't feel quite so guilty! ha ha ha)
Congrats!

That's fabulous !!! That leaves you extra money to save for our escape to Disneyland. (We'll sneak out in the middle of the night. shhhhh, don't tell anyone.)

Good job. That reminds me how George loves to score double and triple hits when he grocery shops. He once came home with five heads of lettuce because it was such a bargain. Needless to say, four of them rotted before we could use them. Now, where is the savings in that?
