As I have said before here and here, we live as frugal as possible. After all, frugal sounds so much better than cheap! I used to think that pinching pennies meant that you didn’t get the ‘good things’. I was wrong. Crystal normally does a thing on Saturdays called Super Savings Saturday. I have not participated yet. Even though I get good deals and save a good amount of money in the process, I never mange to get a picture of it all before I put it away. I went to CVS this week and saved a little more than $141.00. When my mom tells my dad she saved money, his first questions is how did she have to spend to save that much! I spent a little over $11.00!

Did you see that? I spent a little over $11.00 total! It took three transactions, rolling over ECBs and using coupons. I was so excited to tell Heath! The best part? We needed the items pictured. Well, all except the glucose monitor. The monitor was on sale fro $30.00 this week and I had a coupon to save $30.00 off 1, so it was free. I plan to donate it to an elderly lady we know. I think the best part about saving is having the ability to still give to others. Some months it feels hard to simply feed 3 growing boys, a hubby and myself and I wonder if pinching pennies is even worth it. This month, it sure was! Now, if I had only taken the picture of my Publix trip…where I spent around $24.00 and saved $28.00!

    I have no concept of this what so every. You are going to have to tell me how you do this. I tend to make savings trips to the store and it ends up costing me more.

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting! I’ve just, in the last month, figured out the CVS thing – and I’m so glad I did! My next goal is to actually menu plan, lol.
    I love your title picture and “about me”- I couldn’t have said it better.
    God bless!

    You have got to tell me how you did that! We’re really trying to start pinching pennies since Jared’s back in school.

  6. […] 11, 2008 Thanks to all of you who commented or emailed about the Super Savings post on Saturday. I confess that there are weeks I am unable to get the great deals like that. […]
