Coupons Coupons - and loving them!

For years and years, I've purchased the newspaper every week to cut out coupons and maybe a total of 10 times I've used them. I always hear about how these women who go shopping and spend very little to no money, heck some of them are making money. I've always wonder how?

Moving out to OR, it's been easy meeting new people. I never thought I would be making or meeting friends as fast as I have been. There are wonderful mom networks out here and the neighbors are just amazing! Within 1 week, I've become friends with my neighbor Fara and had Adrianna in school, been to a home party and a coupon learning class. Fara and I have learned so much from her wonderful friend Rachel who was so kind to teach us her coupons skills.

Since last week these are my savings:

The Biggest Loser Wii Game - Price $49.99 Paid $19.99 SAVED $30

2 Reams of Paper - $4.99 each - Rebate $3.99 each = $1.00 each = $2.00 total
Ptouch Label Machine - $19.99 - Instore Savings $9.99 - Rebate $10.00 = $0.00 Total
SAVED $27.97

A bunch of different groceries items Price $55.06 Paid $26.64 SAVED $28.42

Rite Aid:
Buy One Get One Free Sale plus coupons Price $62.10 Paid $31.05 plus $5.00 off = $26.06 SAVED $36.04!!!

Buy One Get One Free - Got all of Gabriella's bday presents here, she made out great!!
plus a on sale item - Price $48.30 Paid $29.22 SAVED $18.98

I have one for the grocery store but can't find the copy of the receipt that one I did AWESOME on. I'll have to post again.

Total Savings to date: 141.41

These are all items I needed this week and would have been on my list to get. To think that I would have spent way more makes me ill.

I am sure addicted to coupon savings now :)

Blush Hair Combs w/ a Giveaway!!!

I've been honored to introduce Blush Hair Combs to you all :)
I feel in love with the product the day one of my best friend got married. Her sister in law April had the cutest hair accessory in her hair and I think pretty much all of us bridesmaids where in love!

April, a soon to be blushing bride, set out looking for the perfect hair accessory for one of her bridesmaids (co-founder, Trista). After looking at all the local stores and finding nothing, she searched the web. She did find some pretty hair pieces, but not exactly what she was looking for, and definitely not her price range.

April and Trista came up with a hair accessory of their own using their creative side. After getting many compliments and much interest in the hair piece, the two friends decided to begin designing one of a kind, affordable hair pieces for weddings, special occasions and everyday. The philosophy of Blush was quickly born: great value, smart design, vintage aesthetic, bespoke, and nothing would come out of their shop the two women wouldn’t wear themselves.
I have purchased two accessory and fell in love all over again. I love how light the hair prices are, how affordable the accessory are, how much it can change your hair - you can go to Blah to WOW in a matter of a second and the best part is the designs are just so darn chic. I've worn mine out just hiking, dinner with my husband, just to take my daughter to school (when I didn't have a whole lot of time to do my hair) and to mom meet up.

Take a look at April site. I know you will love the pieces and the prices. It's soo affordable. It would be a great gift for bridesmaids, for brides, for mother of the bride, for that perfect princess getting ready for her school dance, and I know I'll be telling my husband I want some for my stocking :)

Now on to the Giveaway:

April was kind enough to offer The Delaney !!!
Delaney would be perfect and just in time for the Christmas Holiday!!

Ohhh Salllly!

I love my dog don't get me wrong, but some days I could kill her (i am joking for those who are taking me seriously).

When we got her about 2 years ago she was a pup and we didn't really have to do so much training with her. Only training we had to do is trying to get her to NOT eat our stuff! I see that we still have to work on that but she's getting better.

1st it was my fav pair of high heels that she ate.
2nd it was Adrianna's Snow white headband for her Halloween costume.
3rd it was my hearing aid and $2500 later we had to get a new one!
4th it was my coat
5th it was my pillow
Now today it was my glasses!!

I am seeing a pattern here, it's my stuff she's eating!!! And I am the one who takes care of her! BRAT! :)

Wouldn't trade her for anything! Love you Sally!

Will be back later today for our 2nd Giveaway!! Trust me you won't want to miss out on this one!

Oh so excited!

I got some great people that I've found that are going to be part of the Review and Giveaways!! The littlest things that make you so excited in life ;)

On a side note today Gabriella and I went for our morning walk while Adrianna was at school and it's just amazing how you really do learn something new everyday! We found a new path to walk on and it had some interesting facts about the Solar System during the whole path. It was nice to get out in the cool crisp fall morning and just explore. It's a bonus when you find a path you didn't know was there and then find out there is a chance to learn about the Solar System, double bonus!

Moving away from our home state has been so rewarding I wouldn't change it for a thing!!!

Don't forget to respond to yesterday blog for a chance to win an awesome giveaway!!! You don't need a blog to enter :)
