February - the end!

I had to buy some things for a wedding, so I have a couple random things on here. But I spent $50 this week which puts me over my budget by $9.
Meals for the last couple days were:
Feb 25 - quesadillas 26 - turkey sandwiches with fruit (homemade bread!) 27 - roast with potatoes, carrots, and green beans 28 - leftovers!
$209 for the month of february.
I'm renewed in my goal for march. There are no weddings, we are not having people over for dinner, and my husband will be gone all next week which means mac and cheese and ramen for dinner!! haha! just kidding. but not really.
Going shopping tomorrow for the first part of march! here we gooooooo.

February - week 3

I'm a little behind with the holiday weekend where my kids had off school Thursday and Friday (but not monday) and my husband was home on Monday but worked all day so I still had to hang with the littles. Care to see a pic of the littles? Here you go...

So here is what I purchased last week (I know! I am late!)

and here are the meals that we have and will be eating with the above goods.

Feb. 17 - dinner at neighbor's house, we brought bread and mashed potatoes.
Feb. 18 - Pulled Pork sandwiches with corn on the cob. (this is from when I made it a month ago and froze the leftovers.
19 - hamburger casserole. (ground beef mixed with green beans, onions, and condensed tomato soup. topped with mashed potatoes and cheese and baked.)
20 - Chicken pot pie (homemade, of course)
21 - thai chicken pizza and taco pizza
22 - walking taco casserole (from pinterest)
23 - going to a wedding at 2pm, if we are still hungry we'll eat leftovers.
24 - Hamburgers with roasted potatoes and fruit.

All laundry detergent only $1.75/each @ CVS

You are going to want to print your coupons NOW in preparation of next week because they will not be around by then.

HERE is the $2/2 coupon. Print 2 of them (you'll need it).

Then, go to and sign up (it's free). What happens there is you enter in your grocery and pharmacy card numbers and load the "coupons" that you want on them. This is the one you are looking for:

Once you've earned at least $5 on your Savingstar account then you can select a payout option through Paypal or an Amazon gift card! Cool, right?!
Then, starting on Sunday at CVS, All laundry detergent is B1G1

Notice that the limit is 2, so you'll probably have to do 2 separate transactions here.

buy 2 All @ 7.99 each - 15.98
minus get 1 free - 7.99
minus $2/2 coupon
Pay $5.99 OOP

Do it again.

Total is going to be 11.98 OOP and you'll get $5 back through = $6.98 for 4 bottle of All! That's pretty good if you ask me!

*For the Savingstar deal, the amount spent d…

It's always a good time

It's fun days of coupon shopping that remind you how much you like it!

From my last couple of posts, here are the diapers I got ahold of. I know they are the wrong sizes for what I need but I also know that I can take these to any store and exchange them for the right sizes. maybe I'll go back to target in a couple weeks when they've restocked and exchange them there.

And here are my fish oil capsules.

AND, I LOVE it when I go into a store and there is a huge clearance sale going on! Crazy 8 had an additional 20% off clearance and I had a 20% coupon too. that's 40% off clearance prices! The skirts and shirts were like, $3 each and the red coat at the top I am saving for my daughter's birthday.

Look at all that fun pink! I wished I had a lot more money to get a ton more stuff. They had great things there.

Groceries - February, week 2

All righty, after the craziness that was last week I rocked it this week at the grocery store!  I didn't have much to get from my list since my pantry and freezer are pretty full, so it was mostly fresh items.

Here's what I got:

I've been out of bread for a couple weeks so I've been making it myself. 
You see, there is one problem with making your own bread.  It's delicious. 
Yes, that's a problem!
It is exactly what you don't want in the house when you are on a diet. But that store bought bread? Yeah, that doesn't tempt me at all, so store bought it was. I headed to the bread outlet for 1.25/loaf and a free loaf when you spend $5. My freezer is stocked.
And I only needed the apples to make a pie for teacher appreciation week at my daughter's school (not sure how I got roped into that one).
Meals for the next little bit:
Feb 9 - Chili (yes, it's homemade) 10 - Chef salad (SO good. I love it) 11 - hot dogs with pork and beans and fruit 12 - Chili…

Walgreens deals

There are a couple Walgreens deals for cheap this week (finally) and here they are.

I love make-up (eye make-up specifically) and this is a great price.

$2.99 after RR or if you have the $2 coupon from the newspaper inserts, then only .99!
Everyone has been sick lately, so this warming spray for only .99 after RR is a great deal. Use this $1 IP for a freebie!

This is my husband's favorite deodorant, so I'm always looking for sales on this:

If you got the $1 insert coupon, then it's free after RR and coupons, but if not, then $1/each isn't bad!
Last but not least, 

This week these are on sale for $3.99. And there is a catalina deal that you can a $2 RR when you buy one.
SO, print this $1 coupon here, (sort by personal care)
and then buy 1, use the coupon and get a RR = $1 after everything.

Cheap Pampers Diapers at TARGET!

So this week pampers diapers are 8.99 at Target.

Here's the deal breakdown:

buy 2 packs of diapers @ 8.99 each - 17.98
then hand over two $1.50 coupons from HERE. (sort by baby)

There are 3 coupons to pick from, the swaddlers, the cruisers, and the baby dry. AND you can print each coupon twice. so that's 6 coupons.

Pay the $14.98 after your coupons and get a $5 Target giftcard back.

If you have more coupons, do it again but this time use the giftcard to pay as well. Pay $9.98 and get another $5 giftcard. Rinse and repeat.

And THEN, if that weren't enough, go to your Endorse app and enter your receipt and they'll give you $5 back! It's a free app for a smartphone that gives you money back. Sign up HERE.

Not bad, right?? I only have about 1 1/2 more years to use diapers and then I am DONE.
