Couponing!!

Sweet!! So I started learning how to coupon from some moms on my SAHM board.....well, not bad for just starting this a week ago. I went to the store today and here's what I got:

21 rolls bounty11
4-packs of charmin10
3-packs of zest soap
1 Crest toothpaste
1 VO5 conditoner
1 Dunken Hines cake
1 Dunken Hines frosting
2 Banquet dinners
5 totinos pizzas
TOTAL just over $14.00
SAVINGS: just over $83.00!!!!

How sweet is that!! I'm soooo excited about this :) And the cool thing was that after the kids had complained the other day about our trip to the store and my new coupon venture they were not in AWE about how much I'd gotten for just $14!!! Uh huh, NOW you know why we're couponing....... LOL

So, we went to the mall this a.m. so David and the kids could get my b-day present, then came home for naps (when I went to the groc so I wouldn't have to drag everyone along ;) then we got to go out to dinner at one of our favorite resturants, Osaka. (It's kinda like Shogun) So not bad for a birthday :) ........which is actually tom, but we're doing a late easter celebration with my extended family, so we celebrated it today :)

Tricia, It took me a little bit to figure out it was YOUR blog....and I inspired you to start one?! Your kids are gorgeous, and I've been thinking of you more since I saw your mom recently. Looks like life is treating you good! So good to see you. I'm glad you're blogging. It's fun, huh? I'm impressed you figured out the pictures and everything, it took me a while to do that. If you ever want a break from homeschooling, come on over and see me. :) I may just join you again next year. I have been missing it. I hope you'll share with me your tricks on couponing. That sounds absolutely fascinating!!! I wouldn't mind spending $14 on all that stuff.
