Fun Friday

I have a cold... Jack has a cold... Hailey will probably catch our cold =) But it's still FRIDAY and that's reason enough to put a smile on your face! I really love Friday's because I have to whole day with Jack. He loves to just hang out and is such a great helper. I don't have to run back and forth from Hailey's school and his school 4 times! We just drop off Hailey and then pick her up! Much more relaxing day!! Now don't get me wrong... I really love Jack's preschool and he loves it too!

We are going to go to Hailey's class this afternoon for a PACT activity (Parent And Child Time). They are going to make bird feeders out of pine cones and peanut butter. Guess who donated all the pine cones for both pre-k classes (over 40)??? ........ Yours Truly! Me and the kids grabbed our plastic bags and picked the best of the best from our backyard!

Oh and I did my Publix run yesterday with my little Jake!! He's such a good baby and I'm really enjoying my mornings with him. I didn't take a picture of my deal because I really needed to put the groceries away and didn't want to haul them all back out just for a visual aid.... But my total was $116.98 and I saved $60.26 so out of pocket was only $56.72!! That's less than half =) This was the first time I used Food Lion and Target coupons ON TOP of manufactures coupons and it was awesome!!

So I'm off to go get some cleaning done... Our weather is kind of crappy today so we are probably going to be stuck inside all weekend. I'm sad... I wanted to go to the zoo! I was going to be really nice and take the kids too =) We'll just have to save it for another weekend when Daddy is off.

I think we've got the same sickness you guys have!
Don't you just love getting those grocery bargains? I've been hitting up diapers and wipes this week.

How do you manage to save that much? Where do you get your coupons? Do you have to hit several stores to get the sales, etc? We have such few stores to choose from. Sounds like you are doing really well with your savings. As long as it is something you will use and it doesn't take up a whole lot of time, it is worth it.
Love you,

You are doing awesome with your couponing! Glad you and Jack are having a good day. The pinecone birdfeeders sound like fun!

Sorry you guys are feeling bad and that the weather messed up your zoo plans. Now you'll have more time to look up those coupons I was telling you about though. Hope you had fun making bird feeders. You'll have to tell me how it went using the competitor coupons.

And they were the best pinecones ever! Seriously, I could not have found nicer pine cones than the ones you brought. What would we do without you? Thanks for doing it for us. And for my coke. :)
