Sorry it's been so long since I have posted. I'm trying to get back into the working/school routine again. All those school meetings (and homeschooling), running around from place to place, and trying to work and maintain a house. It's crazy.
I did scan through the weekly ads and decided to go to Albertson's today. I saved $48%. Chicken Breasts on sale for $1.99 a pound. Nasbisco crackers/cookies were only $.84 if you bought 6, and picked up some steaks with $3.00 off stickers that I will use tonight, and Pepsi for a great price as well.
I am looking forward to posting those great 1/2 price deals and taking advantage of those.
When you have a busy life it's hard to do the extreme couponing. I love couponing but between full time work, blogging, working out, one child in school, one home schooling, cleaning, shopping, etc it's hard to sit down and match up coupons. I found an easier way for me to save money.
I shop at Winco, Costco, and sales at other stores (with or without coupons), I use a lot of Daily Deals on restaurants, entertainment, and household items. We buy fund raising coupon books. We are always looking for restaurant deals as well. We like to go out at least once a week to a nice dinner or date night. My husband and I normally always have some type of coupon on date night costing about $25-$30 for dinner and a couple drinks.
So if you couponing is too much for you look into other ways to save money. I share Daily Deals and some fun items to help you get the best deal.

I had a wonderful opportunity to design and order a car magnet for my husband from Signazon.com. From Signazon.com you can also create window decals, yard signs, graduation banners, and much more. I can't tell you how easy it was to get onto their website and create my own car magnet. I selected one of their samples and played around with it until I was ready to submit my order. You can save different signs you have created and select the one you want to purchase. The prices are very affordable and it would be an excellent gift for that special someone, your business, birthday, sports team, graduation, etc . The car magnet I ordered was a 10"X20" for about $27.00.
I received my car magnets just a few days after I purchased them. They are exactly how I created them (one for each side of the car). This is my husband's drag racing logo. He is very excited to display them when he travels to the races. We will be showing them off this weekend!
A fun idea would be to create an " It's My Birthday Today" magnet for someone in your office or family and put it on their car the day of their birthday.
