Scotch Gift Wrap Cutter

Hey y'all! This is what I just got at KMart to cut my coupons with. I saw on someones blog awhile ago where this gal had something similar that she bought from Amazon that you just slide down the coupon pages and cut several coupons out at the same time. I couldn't find anything like that today, but I found this and figured technically it should work. So I just tried it using 3 pages and it worked pretty well. It didn't fray the paper and the only problem I ran into while cutting coupons was that you can't just turn another way with it. You can only go 1 direction at a time, so it was a little time consuming but not too bad for my first time using it.

Here is the product from Amazon, I just searched for coupon cutter...DUH!!!!

Well, I'm heading off here for a bit to get a Coupon cheat sheet for those coupons I use & don't use. That way I can keep it so I know what is going to expire soon and when. I'm still searching for baseball / business card holder to put all of them in. KMart didn't have either one. Next stop Walmart.

Have a blessed day!

Take care,

My $avings @ Winn Dixie today

Hey y'all! I'm so excited!!! I just got back from a shop @ Winn Dixie for Rob & I and I saved $20.44 between my WD Rewards Card and Coupons!!!! This is just what I got using those coupons & rewards card. Of course, I wish I could have SAVED more, but it is a start.

I went thru my WD sales flyer to see what they had and then went thru my little stock pile of coupons and found what I could use. I was so proud of myself. I "stacked" coupons with my Kellogg's B1G1F cereal. I had a $1 off, so instead of paying $4.69 for the big box of cereal, I paid $3.69. WOO HOO!!! I know it isn't all that much, but I'm so excited that I am slowly but surely getting the idea of how things work. Now if we could just get them to "Double Coupons", I would really be in business. ;)

Well, I thought I would share my excitement with you! Have a Blessed day!

Take care,

Too Hot for This

Our house has been on the market for about 3 months now (give or take a couple weeks). For the first time, we had someone come and have a look. So we decided that since Pebbles needed a nail trimming & bath (she has allergies & itches & sheds so much) that we decided while waiting to take her to PetsMart.

While DH (Dear Hubby) Rob and I were at Starbucks waiting for Pebbles to get done. This lady walked in...

She was wearing a PINK HOODIE in 90 something degree HEAT!!!! I was just starting to cool down from walking from PetsMart to the car and she made me hotter. I know people get cold sometimes in places during the different times of year, but goodness gracious...don't wear a hoodie. Bring a sweater or jacket to take on & off. LOL

Here is Pebbles after her bath and nail trimming...

Doesn't she look BEAUTIFUL!!!! She was panting because it is so HOT outside. But she looks like a new girl...even though she just turned 12 yrs old a few days ago. Baron didn't make it to his 12th birthday, he has been gone for almost a year now. Pebbles misses him so. Now she thinks she is the ALPHA of the house. LOL She hasn't been eating much, so in order to bribe her, we bought wet food, to see if that will get her to eat. It worries us, since Baron started doing that a few months before we had to have him put to sleep.

Well, I'm off to plan out my menu for the week so I can go grocery shopping w/ coupons tomorrow.

Have a Blessed week!

Take care,
God Bless,

Ordered my 1st set of Whole Coupons

Well, I finally jumped into the ordering whole coupon inserts water tonight. :) I am trying which I hear is the "cheapest" online. You can order clipped and whole coupon inserts thru her. I read a little bit ago thru an experienced coupon clipper that you should have enough whole inserts for each person in your family. So, instead of purchasing an additional 3 newspapers, which I won't read, I went to Coupon Dede and bought 3 more. My order came up to a little over $11 which includes the shipping for regular US mail. I figure that I don't need Priority Mail for $5+, which is a waste of money (I personally think), since most of the coupons do not expire until the middle to end of July. We are only a week and a little bit more into June. So, regular ole snail mail it is.

I still need to finish getting my "binder" organized...I need to get the coupon holders and buy more ink for my printer and I should be good to go. I got the Office Depot bag for 20% in the Sunday paper, so guess who is going shopping there. :) LOL

While I'm thinking about is a link to get FREE $10 P&G Laundry Care

If I get any more good deals, I will post them for ya.

Thanks for reading and Happy Couponing!

Take care,
