Long time no post...

Summer has come and gone and I have been super busy with the kids...keeping them out of that boredom state that we moms know all too well.

Confession time...I didn't use my coupon talent this summer much.  I was so busy with other things that clipping, organizing, and actually using coupons was not my priority.  Plus, we have been trying to eat healthier and coupons done get sent to me for fresh fruits and veggies...wonder why???

So, here we are with one child back in school full time...:)  and the other will start 1/2 days 3 days a week next week... :) :)  Once my oldest went back to school things calmed down around here.  Crazy how one kid can cause so much extra commotion....which I call picking on the little brother until he screams.

I am actually using my skills at couponing again.  Today I hit up Walgreen's for the few items that were on my "usable" list.  I have decided that I will not get things that are free that I can not use...they just go to waste.  For example, one item that is FREE after RR is Estroven...well I really have no use for Estroven so I decided to skip that one.  Instead I picked up 4 bags of M&M's and Tampons...yep...that was all.

It looked like this:

Tampax Tampons: $2.99
Used $2 coupon
-Get $1 RR

(4) bags of M&M's 4/$10
Used (1) $1.50/2 coupon from Sept. All You Magazine
(1) $1/2 from the newspaper (I don't know where anymore I clip my coupons) :)
-Get $5 RR

(1) Small bag of coconut M&M's to keep the child happy while I stood in line at Motor Vehicle.
Used $4 RR from last week.

Paid $6.46
Got back $6.00 in RR's!

So I am back to stock up mode because we only have 3 boxes of cereal on hand and that is a bad when we have lots of cereal to choose from the hubby is really happy.  Gotta keep the man of this house happy. 

I will keep you posted on our stock up status...hoping I can stick to it now that the kids are back in school and I will have some time to do some catching up.
