Welcome to my blog!!

If I can find out if and when Kroger might bring back is a deal that would be sweet!!

WackyMac usually sells for about $1.00 a pkg and there are $.50 Q's out there, but wait there is more...there are also BOGO Q's out, with one of each Qs there could be 2 bags free coming home!! There was also a Upromise E-Q out there...I can't find it now, perhaps because I have it loaded? but, you could even make some $$ in this deal!!

Thankful for all I have learned....

I just never know when my couponing skills will come in handy. As I have mentioned, our sweet dog, Fristy, has diabetes (we just learned this on Saturday). She is going to have to eat Hill's Science Diet from now on. My coupon buddy Paula told me that there is a printable for $8 off a bag. Today I just checked HCW's coupon database, and low and behold, there is a printable MIR for $25 off a bag and vet services!!! Thank you Paula and HCW for making a hard week a bit easier!!!

Some Random Thoughts....

Busy weekend....

First and most importantly...our sweet doggy, Fristy, has diabetes. We have caught it early, and she is going to be fine!!

I have done more shopping than usual this weekend. 2 trips to CVS netted me 4 Glucose Monitors, 4 Febreeze Noticebles, a bottle of Gain, a photo book (full of pics of my flower garden) a Gillette Razor and lots of school supplies for my daughter's class this next year!!

At 4 boxes of Kashi soft-baked cereal bars, 7 trial size Tide and 5 trial size ALL!!

I would like to give another shout-out to "MY" CVS!!! get aload of this..."my" sales person, Alisha walked me thru the store and helped me find my deals...when we discovered that some things were sold was she that offered to get me rainchecks...and she gave me rainchecks for not only me...but for my daughter too!! (my daughter couldn't go shopping today, as she is flying back from a trip to see her Grandpa!!
