Be Frugal Anywhere!

Along with checking out all my favorite sites, which you can find through buttons on the right side of this page, a fantastic way to find deals in your area is The Frugal Map. I have used this many times since it's roll out to help find bloggers here in the Philadelphia Area. It's how I found!

I've added the map to the bottom of this homepage!

Man, it feels good to be a gangsta!

Sadie and I did it again! Superfresh was running a great sale on items we actually use and needed this week. Hamburger Helper, Huggies wipes, etc. I did splurge for my trip home this weekend and got 2 boxes of Tastee Kakes which were not on sale, but they're not for me ;).I used some of my coupons and they all were able to double (yay!), and the store savings card helped a bunch as well.

Pre-savings we were at $110.48. Between card and coupons we saved $59.10 for a total out of pocket of $51.38!!!

I am loving how couponing is working for us. What about you? What were you big savings this week?

Couponing Strikes Again!

I have really been trying to buckle down on our grocery bills lately. I would haphazardly attempt using coupons and watching sales, but you don't save if they are left at home!

Last week I had my best couponing experience to date at Superfresh. My pre-savings total was $30.52, after store savings card and coupons tendered my OOP was only $15.69!! Can I just tell you what an awesome feeling that is?!

Today in the Target Dollar Aisle they actually had coupon organizers! I'm cracking down on myself today and clipping and sorting these little paper wonders. No more shoving them in the cookie jar for me!
