Also, I have to give props to my hubby today. Instead of griping about my coupons and trying to hurry me, when I was loading up dish soap he went on down the isle and found the bathroom cleaner deal for me. It was funny he came hustling back down the isle towards me carrying a bottle in each hand and with a smug little smile on his face. He told me what the sale price was and showed me the peelie coupons on the bottles and asked me that made it "a good deal" or not LOL.
Here's the picture:

My daughter, Nikki, is graduating from University of Denver June 4th. We're driving down for her graduation and I'm down to 7 weeks to save an extra $900 that I need for the trip. I have a few things up my sleeve to come up with the money, and I'll post them as I go on the blog. The first one is using my coupons faithfully again each week. Lately, I've been spending between $125-$150 a week on average, for our groceries and household products.
Today, I spent $62 and change at Meijer and saved $41 and some change on my large transaction. I first did a peanut butter transaction that I don't have added into those totals. For the peanut butter, I did 3 transactions. For each transaction, I purchased 3 jars of Peter Pan peanut butter. My total for 3 jars, was $ .98. My savings on the 3 jars, was $5.50! We go through PB like mad. My husband will not take anything to work with him for his lunch, except for PB&J sandwiches. He takes 2-3 with him every. single. day. So how in the world could I pass up getting it for $ .32666 a jar??! Here's our 9 jars of PB.
They were on sale 3/$5. I used 3 Meijer Meal Box coupons of $1/3 jars, plus I used 9 manufacturer coupons of $ .50/1 jar...which all doubled to $1/1 jar.
I don't have a picture of it, but I got a bottle of Garnier Fructis Shampoo + Conditioner for $1.50. It was on sale 2/$5. I uploaded a $1/1 mPerks coupon to my phone number which brought it down to $1.50.
I got 2 packs of Ball Park Franks for $ .67/ea. They were on sale 3/$5 and I used 2 $1/1 coupons that I printed from their Face Book page, which took them down to $ .67 a pack!
This evening, we ran into Rite-Aid real quick so I could look for a bottle of nail polish. Well, before I found the nail polish, I got side tracked by a ton of make-up that was 75% or more off. My youngest daughter Courtney, had just been complaining a few days ago that she needed some new makeup. We all know how expensive makeup can be! Here's what she got, minus 8 or 9 containers of mineral makeup foundation powders that she'd already taken straight upstairs to her room. -Which btw, was $7.99/ea regular price and we paid $1.49/ea on clearance.
We paid $ .24/ea for the round containers of lip gloss, $ .59/ea for the eye liners, $1.10/ea for the 3 tubes of long-wear lipstick, and $1.99/ea for the 2 eye shadow compacts. So, she's now set again on makeup and it didn't break my budget this time. As a matter of fact, she should be set on makeup for the next year!! -Side Note: I did not get MY nail polish that I originally went in for. LOL

With today's economy, many people are finding themselves in the horrible situation of home foreclosure. Our home is one of our most prized possessions. It's where your family relaxes, enjoys meals together, plays games and connects. It's your home. One of the scariest things to think of is possibly losing what you've worked so hard to build. If you, or someone you know is struggling with making your mortgage payments, do you know your options?
This is a website that is a wealth of information for those struggling with the issue of possible home foreclosure. They have links to housing counselors, calculators, contacting your lender, understanding your credit score, videos, etc. They offer helpful advice for options to keep you in your home. If you don't want to work to try and save your home, they offer helpful links for leaving your home.
The best advice I can offer to any family member or friend who may find themselves struggling right now, is to read everything there is, at KnowYourOptions.com
There is also a tab "Beware Of Scams". This tab is particularly helpful, because unfortunately with today's economy, there are many scams going around. It's important for you to read this information, so that you're aware of what may be a scam. You can only protect yourself, if you're armed with the information.
If you're struggling with mortgage payments, please know that you do have other options than foreclosure. If you click on the "Options to Leave Your Home" tab, you can find information on a short sale or a deed-in-lieu. Either of these options would keep you out of foreclosure. Please ma
