I actually did a little Wal-Mart shopping this week. I usually don't go there because every coupon Natzi in my little small town works there, or so it seems. But I had printed the Kotex coupon and read about the Velveeta prices at Wal-mart so off I went.

2 -Velveeta Shells and Cheese cups $.98 each used 1 $1.50 off 2 coupon
2 - Velveeta Shells and Cheese boxed $1.50 each used 1 $1.50 off 2 coupon

2 - Sierra Mist 2 ltrs $1 each used a BOGO coupon
2 - Kotex Liners $1 each used 2 $1 coupons
Total Value $11.87 Total Spent $2.87

Thankful Thursday - A Mom

I have never done Thankful Thursday before but this week when I stumbled upon it I could not resist. Thanks so much Lynn for Thankful Thursday.
My Mom is wonderful. I think most people would say that about their mothers. She loves me and my family. She tries very hard to be involved in her granddaughters lives even though she lives a hour and a half away. She raised me well, in church with a strong faith and knowing the importance of family. I love her very much and I am very lucky to have my mom.

Unimportant Favorite Things

I was recently tagged by Sandra from A lot of Savings to list six unimportant things that make me happy.

This is going to be interesting. But before I start, here are the rules:

1. Mention the person who nominated you. Be sure to check out Sandra's blog.

2. List six unimportant things that make you happy.

My List:
  1. My morning coffee it may really be important, depends on the morning I guess. :-)
  2. The ocean, the beach, the sun I love all of it.
  3. Coupons and free stuff. It is important for me to save money but I get a real thrill from saving and getting things for free.
  4. Blooming flowers, either my own or some I just see driving down the street.
  5. Diet Mt. Dew, ok this is bad I know but I reaaly do like it.
  6. Candles, I love how they smell and look burning.

3. Tag six blogs. State the rules, and let them know with a small comment on their blog.

Here is who I've tagged:

Katie's Nesting Spot

A listmaker's Life

Savvy Squirrel

A Quest for Cents

A Happyhippy Mom
