One Month of Stockpiling...

What a difference one month of stockpiling can make! I have saved a TON of money OOP and have over $100 of rebates coming to me! I am so glad that I have decided to start couponing and I can't believe that I didn't do it sooner! Hopefully those savings can start going into the girls' savings accounts!!

I love Walgreens!

This has been such a great month for me with all of the Easysaver Rewards! Anyone who doesn't shop Walgreen's should because their deals are great! Here is my breakdown:
Windex: $3.79-$1 Rebate-$1.50 MFG Q=$1.29
Fantastik: $3.79-$1 Rebate-$2 MFG Q=$.79
Pampers Wipes(Not the best deal, but I needed them): $2.50-$.50 MFG Q=$2.00
Bic Razors: $3.99-$1 IVC-$2 MFG Q=$.99
Glade Glass Scents: $3.29-$1 Rebate-BOGO Sale=$.64
Total OOP w/tax: $27.94
Total after Rebates: $16.20
Full Price: $45.10
Total Savings: $28.90

Passing time with small children

I have been looking for a long time for a small project to help pass the time with small children while cooped up at home on a rainy or cold day. Well, I got the perfect idea and I wanted to share it with you because of works for me!

1 cup Peanut Butter
1 Cup Sugar
1 Egg

Mix together, roll into a ball, roll in sugar, fork and bake at 375 until done.

This is super easy and not a big mess. Kids LOVE to roll the cookie dough in sugar and make the pretty little fork marks in the top!

Giving this a try!

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

Thank you, Jenna for having this site in your blog! It has made me realize that I can do one thing a week and feel like I accomplished something!! No more massive home overhauls in one stressful day!!!

Today I decided to tackle my husband's desk in the office. I have always vowed to stay away from his stuff, but I just couldn't take the mess anymore!!! It made me stressed out every time I sat down to the computer in the afternoon!

It wasn't a difficult job, just one that was long overdue! It took me about 10 minutes to finish, but the outcome is GREAT! I think I like this cleaning stuff!! I can't wait until next Tuesday!
