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 [...]

Thursday Shopping 12-30-10

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 [...]
