The other side of the store

I finally decided that I needed to make a few clothing purchases. I could not continue to wearing baggy and uncomfortable stuff to work. A lot of time in my days have been spent pulling up my pants and adjusting my shirts. I love shopping, but I hate shopping for clothes. I can never find anything that fits just right or that is flattering (in my eyes).

Savings this week

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Once again, I was able to keep my grocery bill under $100.00 this week.  My total prior to BOGO and sales was $155.68. I paid only $79.25 saving a total of $76.43.  In addition to my groceries I purchased two greeting cards at a cost of $4.75. 

Every time I think I am too tired or too busy to clip coupons and match up sale advertisements I remind myself that if I don’t take the time to coupon shop I am robbing my family of money that can be used for other things. Since we donate a lot of what we purchase I am also robbing my family of the chance to help others in need when I don’t take time to coupon shop.
