Thursday Shopping 1-13-11 (and Weekly Shopping Linky)

Whew, what a day!  After posting a video just yesterday about how little time I spend organizing and sorting my coupons, I feel a little sheepish today telling you that today's shopping trip took a LOT more time than usual to prepare for. If you've been following my shopping results for a while you know [...]

I'm sure many of you probably had a chance to watch "Extreme Couponing" on TLC  last night.  We don't have cable, so I actually didn't get a chance to watch the whole show, but I did watch a lot of clips online this morning.  I found it very unfortunate that TLC chose to portray people [...]

Thursday Shopping 12-16-10 (& Shopping Link Up)

Another week, another shopping challenge.  This time I dropped off Princess at preschool at 8:30am and needed to make it to both Walgreens & Publix before picking up my mother-in-law for her hearing aid appointment at 10.  Luckily both trips were smooth sailing all the way, with friendly cashiers and few coupon issues, and I [...]

Thursday Shopping 12-09-10 (& Shopping Link Up)

Today my shopping challenge was to make it through three stores with Trouble in tow, all in less than ninety minutes.  We left the house at 11:06am and needed to pick up Princess from school at promptly 12:30.  Luckily all three stores are close by, but it was still a push.  Unfortunately I was in [...]

Thursday Shopping 12-02-10 (& Shopping Link Up)

I couldn't resist popping into Walgreens yesterday to take advantage of the Friends & Family 15% discount.  Unfortunately I had to take both girls with me, which was, to put it mildly, an unmitigated disaster.  Princess, who insisted on wearing her "sparkly princess" shoes (although I told her not to), slipped and fell on the [...]

Walgreens Black Friday Shopping (& Weekly Shopping Link-Up)

I woke up this morning with a full-blown cold, but I couldn't bear the thought of missing out on the Walgreens Black Friday sale.  Thus, I bucked up, took a big dose of DayQuil, and headed on over.  Unfortunately my head was in a bit of a fog from the medication and I ended up [...]

Thursday Shopping 11-18-10 (& Shopping Link Up)

To be perfectly honest, I have been dreading today's pre-Thanksgiving shopping trip.  As much as I've tried to stock up on sale-priced Thanksgiving-related items over the past couple of weeks, I knew the day was coming where I would have to--gasp--pay full price for quite a few items, something I rarely do these days.  But [...]

Thursday Shopping 11-11-10 (& Shopping Link Up)

Wow, I think I may have missed my calling as a movie star.  Actually, I'm just kidding.  I don't think I could be more awkward on camera if I tried.  To me the best part about having kids is always getting to be behind the camera and not in front of it.  Nonetheless, for some [...]

Thursday Shopping 11-04-10 & Shopping Link Up

Wow, this morning has already been so full of highs (my trip to Publix) and lows (Trouble waking up at 4am, internet issues) that I can't believe it is only 11am.  I just have to say that today's shopping trip was awesome!  Even Trouble's stubborn toddler insistence that I don't put my hands on the [...]

Thursday Shopping 10-21-10

I started out this morning a little frustrated because my papers didn't include several of the coupons I was hoping to use.  It didn't help matters that I had sneaked Trouble's special blankie into the wash, not realizing that she, being obsessed with the washer, would see it tumbling around and completely freak out.  It [...]

Thursday Shopping 10-14-10

Aside from forgetting my list and all my coupons on the kitchen counter (and having to go all the way back home to get them), today's shopping trip was relatively uneventful.  I wasn't super excited by the ads at either Publix or Winn-Dixie this week, but luckily I have enough food in my stockpile to [...]

First of all, I would like to thank everyone who has been voting for my blog on the Top Mommy Blogs - Mom Blog Directory.  Your support means the world to me, and every single vote counts!  At last check, my blog was ranked #31 on the main list and is only few votes shy [...]

Thursday Shopping 9-30-10

I'll be honest, today was not one of my better shopping days.  Savings-wise, I still did fine, but I was frazzled and disorganized, and generally a bit crabby overall.  The last day of the month caught me by surprise, and I feel like I have been rushing around all day (even more than normal) trying [...]

Thursday Shopping 9-23-10

(I apologize in advance for this drawn out account of my shopping experience today. For just the bottom line, scroll WAY down!) I can be such a spaz sometimes.  I am constantly running around trying to cram one more thing into my day, and I rarely, if ever, just sit and relax.  Breakfast and lunch, [...]

Thursday Shopping 9-16-10

It wasn't really an exciting week for groceries.  I have been chomping at the bit to use my new Kraft $5 off of 5 coupons.  I thought I had struck pay dirt when I caught someone's comment on that Kraft Deli Deluxe slices were on sale, since I would then be able to stack [...]
