Wow!  You guys REALLY had an an opinion yesterday about my dress options!  It was so great to see what everyone thought, and I really, really appreciate all the feedback!  I still haven't made a final decision--I may bring them all--but I am leaning towards 1 or 2.  Or 6.  Or maybe 5.  But I [...]

This week has been a little crazy!   Several of you have asked to see the news clips (which is so very sweet of you.)  The Wednesday appearance is available to watch here or you can check out the Thursday spot here. I usually get up verrrrry early (as in, the middle of the night for [...]

a BIG announcement: thursday shopping 9-22-11 {& weekly shopping linky}

I had a fun little shopping trip today.  There wasn't too much I needed to get but I was psyched to see those Orville Redenbacher pop-up bowls on sale.  I love those things!   I  also made a little video today, but it wasn't to show here.  It is for my NEW...(wait for it).... ONLINE [...]

Is it just me or has this week flown by?  I can hardly believe the weekend is almost here! I had a fun little shopping trip this morning.  After Sunday's fiasco with the girls, it sure was nice to shop all by myself while they were at school.  I was so relaxed that I even [...]

Wow, you guys had a LOT to say last week about the new season of Extreme Couponing and last week's video!  I loved reading all your comments and it makes me beyond happy to know that you all are committed to using coupons in a way that is ethical, respectful of others, and nice. And, [...]

extreme couponing for normal {and nice} people: thursday shopping 9-1-11 {& weekly shopping linky}

It was just announced that TLC's Extreme Couponing Season 2 will begin September 28th.  I know a many of you probably found this site after watching the first season, and sometimes I feel a little torn about the show. On the one hand, TLC's Extreme Couponing has introduced a lot of people who were struggling [...]

thursday shopping 8-25-11 {& weekly shopping linky}

One of the most common questions I hear from new couponers is "why aren't I saving more on food?"  The thrill of free toothpaste and deodorant--while still fun--loses a bit of luster the moment we realize we still have to eat. It is super important, especially at the beginning, not to fall into the trap [...]

thursday shopping 8-18-11 {& weekly shopping linky}

I had no idea last week's shopping trip would be so controversial!  Okay, so maybe 2 slightly snarky comments does not a controversy make, but you guys are usually so overwhelmingly positive that it did throw me for a loop.  Mostly because last week's shopping trip was actually fairly "normal"--bread, eggs, yogurt, frozen pizza--at least [...]

I headed off to Asheville, North Carolina today to attend BEcoming, a small conference being organized by two fellow DealPros, the fashionably frugal Jen Schmidt of Balancing Beauty and Bedlam and superstar Jenny Martin of Southern Savers, as well as the ever-amazing Nester from Nesting Place.  I have admired all three of these ladies for [...]

thursday shopping 8-4-11 {& weekly shopping linky}

I had every intention of making it to Publix first thing this morning, but I just couldn't seem to pull myself together!  Ever have one of those days?  I'll blame it on the heat. :-) There wasn't a lot I needed or wanted today besides some cheap peanut butter (yum!)  I did want to get [...]

thursday shopping 7-28-11 {& weekly shopping linky}

Today's shopping trip was another chaotic & rushed affair.  This week has been a little crazy (more about that later!) and this morning I realized that I had completely forgotten a commitment that had to be completed asap.  Needless to say, making my shopping list and gathering my coupons got pushed to the bottom of [...]

I have been SO excited (and inspired) these past two days by your comments & emails! It was awesome to hear about your goals for your Savings Pledge, and I am beyond ecstatic that so many of you are committing to the 8 week Beginner's Guide to Savings Challenge. You guys are awesome, you really [...]

thursday shopping 7-7-11 {& weekly shopping linky}

After three trips to Publix last week and an impromptu (and *gasp* undocumented) run to Walmart on the 4th where I couldn't resist taking advantage of some of their incredible produce deals ($0.98 cantaloupe!  $1.75 pineapple!), we are actually pretty well stocked up on almost everything. Everything, that is, except fruit snacks! I also took [...]

thursday shopping 6-30-11 {& weekly shopping linky}

I was beyond thrilled with this week's Publix ad.  Maybe it was the $1 Goldfish--a favorite of all kids everywhere--or the great deals on fruit, made even sweeter by the oh-so-rare $2 off produce coupons Publix issued last week to those who signed up for the Stocking Spree coupon booklet.  Or maybe it was because [...]

thursday shopping 6-23-11 {& weekly shopping linky}

Wow, two trips to Publix in two days--I hardly know what to do with myself!  Lucky for me, my sister-in-law is visiting this week and kindly offered to watch the girls both days so I could grocery shop in peace. Today's savings were slightly better than yesterday, though in my newfound Weight-Watchers enthusiasm I couldn't [...]
