My Best Coupon Shopping trip ever!

Okay, so I am sorry to all you who come to my site wanting to see pictures of my adorable children and you get pictures of food. But I am so proud of my couponing lately that they will have to take second stage. I mean I feel so proud, that I feel I should scrapbook this. And that is a big deal, because I don't scrapbook.
So without futher adu....
My total for these items was $3.14. And I stayed well under my $30 a week grocery budget. And I know you think I am crazy buying all this cereal this week. But really when Jake is out of town we eat alot of cereal. I don't feel the need to cook dinner and my children are happy to have cereal, it is a treat. As long as they eat something heathy with it, I am happy too.
I can't wait to show you the beautiful new coupon purse my good friend Jen made me. So I don't have to look like a goon with my little coupon binder in the store anymore. I will try to take pictures of it, hey free advertising for her online store in Etsy. And give my binder a proper funeral. I can just hear the "taps" now.......

Adventures with coupons

My first transaction Was 8 boxes of cereal and 4 boxes of pasta, With my coupons my total came to $6.84
My second transaction was 8 boxes of cereal, 3 boxes of frozen waffles, 2 packs of hot dogs, 1 block of cheese and 1 gallon of milk. My total came to $11.60.
For a grand total of $18.44! And the best part is, with Fredy's free childcare, I got to do kid free shopping. Except for the smiling happy baby in the cart.
Oh, and the cereal had a deal for free DVD's! Totally scored!

Look What My Boy Can Do!

Luke learned to ride his bike this weekend without training wheels. It took him a whole 5 minutes to catch on, and he was off and on his way. He was going so fast right from the start that I had trouble running after him to keep up.

Walk for Life

For those of you who know me, and those that don't, I am very prolife. We attended the Walk for Life again this year. This is the shirt I made and wore to the walk. I love making fun t-shirts and wearing them, even if they don't look very nice, which this one was way too tight, but get's the message across.
