How about a crafty post!!

So I figured it's been awhile since I made a craft post and me and the kid's are going to be making home made paper mache. This is a first for us using a homemade recipe insted of glue and i will post pictures threw the process. Plus this give's us use of all the extra news paper's we have from purchasing them for coupon's lol.

Below is the recipe we are going to try. (found in a google search)
To make it, combine 1/2 cup all-purpose flour and 2 cups cold water in a bowl. Add this mixture to a saucepan of 2 cups boiling water and bring it to a boil again. Remove from the heat and stir in 3 tablespoons of sugar. Let it cool; it will thicken as it cools. Once it does, it's ready to use.


A Typical Sunday!!!!

This is what a typical Sunday look's like at my house. haha. Stack of smart source in my had, allready clipped ones on the table sorted by item, and not pictured is a stack of health and beauty coupon's waiting to be clipped. I'm glad i enjoy this process tho it take's forever it's kinda relaxing.

Coupon List

So the link I posted with the list of companies that will is deff. something you want to check out. I have been getting so many coupon's in the mail since i have contacted the companies. Feels like a holiday when you opening all those envelope's each ranging with 2 or more coupon's in it. LOVE IT. so worth the time it took to contact each company. I only contacted the ones i will use. think of the 7 or 8 envelopes i received so far only 3 coupons i wont use and those were from one envelope of 17 coupon's...

Im getting ready to head down and get my papers when the store open's at 7 that way I can sit in my van clip a few coupon's I need and shop a little. If this coupon isnt regional and is in my sunday paper it will be a great helper on my shopping trip bringing the total to FREE. Love overage item's lol. Tho im not like the people on tv i wont but 100 item's due to overage, just 12 lol. If not i wont get that item and my total will still include many free item's and only paying a few dollars oop.

Turkey Hill

Just got an email back from Turkey Hill. They will be sending me coupon's in the mail, also they said I can contact every 30 day's for more. This is great especially since we love their ice cream.


Got some coupon's in the mail!!!

The Colgate-Palmolive company sent me coupon's from me contacting them about them.. Today I got 17 different coupon's from them, Irish spring bar soap, Irish spring body wash, colgate phos flur, colgate ora base, ladys speed stick, any speed stick, soft soap body wash, soft soap liquid hand soap, suavitel fabric conditioner or sheets, murphy oil soap, palmolive dish soap, palmolive dish washer detergent, colgate peroxyl, colgate wisp, colgate kids toothpaste, colgate maxfresh toothpaste, colgate manual tooth brush.. All with exp. date's of 1/31/12 so you dont have to worry about using them right away unless you wanted to..

Just goes to show one kind email asking about coupon's can really pay off with allot of them. There are some i wont use but for the most part they sent me many i can use. Im most excited about the kids toothpaste, I currently have 12 (same) coupon's for kids toothpaste and my store doesnt carry. So getting even one for a brand they do have is great. And the hand soap i love getting good deals on that, especially with how often the kid's wash their hand's around here.

Quite A Day

Got some shopping done, went with a friend. 2 orders 1 with coupon's one with out.. I only picked up a few things today that were onsale that I had coupons for 8 chi chi's salsa, 2 kraft home style mac and cheese, and 4 bags of chips. My total after coupons was $5 and some change. My friend got 2 gallon's of iced tea and an energy drink for $8. if i had coupon's with me for those item's i would have given them to her to use but i didn't.. If anyone ever tell's me its not worth it to coupon I would not agree with that, It is worth all the effort i put into it to save allot of money....

Also i bought a sewing machine not to long ago at a yard sale, i know nothing about them. In my attempts to figure it out broke a few needle's but tonight i finally got it figured out and was doodleing on an old shirt. I have allot of practice to do before i attempt to make something lol but im so excited i figured it out how to use it.. Im hoping i get good at using this one so i can buy a newer one this one is older but it will work for my trial and error stage.

found a new site

this site offers you deals to get 50%-90% off at stores. i havent used it yet but heard good things. you get $10 to sign up. im saving mine till i find a daily deal i love lol... when you find the deal you like you buy the thing for the price shown they email you a voucher to use at that store

Ever wonder what companies will mail coupons!

check out

She has posted a list of site's/companies that if contacted will mail you coupons. So i have been spending tonight emailing them to get some coupons, some i will call tomorrow.

I have also went to a few of my favorite companies to see if they will send some as well. As I get replies from them i will post the site's/companies that are not listed that i have contacted.

One company i have contacted before that has sent coupon's is birds eye :)

new option to be added

I am going to start posting links to freebie's and other great deal's on here as if find them so others can enjoy them as well :)

checking clearance

How often do you check the clearance shelves at you're local store? did you know many stores still allow you use your coupon's on those item's. This is a great way to find amazing deal's. i got 9 boxes of asian hamburger for .44 cents a box today great deal.
