Coupon Crazy

I have always been a coupon user. My mom used coupons while I was growing up and I learned from her the value of saving money. Well, it seems lately that I have become coupon crazy. I get so excited for the Sunday paper each week to see what coupons are contained therein. It's almost like Christmas morning for me. I can't wait to see what coupons I'll get and what items are on sale where. I know I'm going to take a lot of heat from Clint on this post but I just wanted to share my coupon excitement. Example of the benefits of coupons. I went to Rite Aid this week and purchased these items. My total came to $50.97. I used my coupons plus the rebates Rite Aid offers taking my total down to a mere $11.24 for 19 items. I know I'm a nerd but I just wanted to share my coupon excitement.

Oh my goodness, I am so excited that you found my blog and now I have yours! It seems like forever since I last talked to you. Your little boy Easton is so adorable. What a cute family. It sounds like you and Clint are doing so good. I am so happy for you.

I am doing good. Burke has one more year of law school and then who knows where we will end up. It has been hard living so far away from family but it has been a great experience for us out here in Ohio.

You look so dang cute, as always. I remember all of our fun days in Provo and also in Logan in the brown house. Those were some great memories. I am excited that we can keep in touch easier now.

I too, am such a nerd. Try going to Ebay coupons when your ads come out. We get things that are on sale for like 10/$10, then you get coupons for $1 off, voila. FREE! It's awesome. Remember by free sausage post?
