Newspaperless experiment

09 December 2010
We've decided to stop buying Sunday papers for a while. We end up with huge stacks to haul to the recycle station in the next county. (Our county has no recycling program as yet). And, despite our good intentions, the unused/expired coupons don't regularly get sent to our military families.

So far, it's been working out better than we hoped. 'Buying' the coupons online reduces waste and makes it much easier/cheaper for us to stock up on items we use often. Example: we 'bought' 12 Idahoan coupons for a total, including shipping, of $2.07. Using the coupons during a BOGO, we got 24 FREE packages! This was a $30 value, so we're actually $27.93 ahead! Yes, we're thinking this experiment is going to be a monumental success. the pantry is filling up nicely and the grocery account is still in the black. Momma's happy! 8-]

Coupons in Chung's packages!

Save on ink!

22 September 2010

Do you ever print out your shopping list? You might want to change your font!

A study by, a Dutch independent printer comparison Web site, found that consumers can save anywhere from $20 to $80 per year on printing costs just by changing the font on their documents. Fonts, depending on their thickness of lines and height of characters, require varying amounts of printer ink, meaning the more efficient your font is, the fewer ink cartridges you have to buy. read more...

ApologetiX - half price!

08 September 2010

From the ApologetiX newsletter:
All ApologetiX CDs and stickers in our online store are half off while supplies last. Downloads are on sale, too.

In the meantime, even Recovery and The Boys Aren't Backin' Down are half off. Our songbook download, our Christmas downloads, and our Rare Not Well Done downloads are half off, too.

If you wish to get downloads for any of our CD titles and save the shipping cost, you can get the downloads for the same sale price as the CDs.

The prices posted in the online store are already marked at the half-off price.

Deals of the week!

06 August 2010
This has been one of our best weeks since we started hyper-couponing about 8 months ago! We finally made it to Staples on the last day of their free 'backpack' special and were delighted to find some very nice selections. Choosing one was quite difficult, but we did narrow it down to two. Then our shopping pal volunteered to put one in his cart so we could have both! The black one was half price and the tie-dye 25% off. We also used a 20% off coupon for the black one, which brought it down to $23.99... and we're getting a $29.99 rebate on it! CHA-CHING!

We also bought several other items, using Staples Rewards, that offered a rebate. So we now have a total - including cash back, Staples Rewards, and gift cards - of around $87.50 coming. Add to that a $10 Publix gift card from the Publix/ConAgra offer, $10 from Aveeno, and $4.96 from the lunch tote we got at Target. Can't wait for these to start rolling in!

Another AbFab deal was at Publix. We did this one three times. Each time, using five $1/2 coupons and the $5/10 ConAgra products Q, 10 bottles of Hunt's Ketchup (BOGO) gave us an overage of $1.25 toward other items! Twice, we opted for the Sabra Hummus (can't stop eating that stuff!) that was on sale and paid exactly $1.75, the cost of one ketchup, for everything! And at the end of the month, each use of our credit union ATM card has earned us 15¢. That came to over $40 this month! CHA-CHING!

Last, but certainly not least, for the final of several Friends and Family deals at Walgreens, we used a $25 Walgreens 'check' from a prescription transfer. Missing from the picture below are 6 more Big Rolls and 8 gallons of distilled water. We bought the 2 vitamins - which our insurance/wellness account paid for! - earlier in the day. Each one cost $7.50 and returned a $10 RR! CHA-CHING! We used the RR from one, along with a couple other RR's we had on hand, to pay for the Complete, one of the razors, and three Huggies wipes. (Almost forgot, we used a $4 coupon on each of the razors and combined store and MC's on the Huggies). The other $10 RR went to Publix for a few last minute deals on the final day of their sale.

Our final deal at Walgreens filled a cart and cost us exactly 13¢! Remember, we get 15¢ for using the ATM card, so we actually made a 2¢ profit! CHA-CHING!

OOP between Publix and Walgreens: $3.63.
RR's in our wallet right now: $23! CHA-CHING!!!!!
Oh, and we found that the cashier made some mistakes, so they owe us 75¢.

Also, we didn't even get a chance to post our CVS deals, which gave us a chance to roll some ECB's with a mere pittance, mostly tax, OOP. This is WAY working for us! :)

Who'da thunk, a year ago, we'd actually be buying more and paying less?! One of the very best things about this new lifestyle is 'buying' so many things we don't need. We've been able to donate quite a few items to the local 'children's home'. They tell us it's a blessing, but we truly believe we are blessed even more. We always leave their office with huge smiles and singing hearts!

OO! OO! Edit: Almost forgot the 2 Alive! coupons, making the vitamins $6.50 each; with a $10 RR per, those 2 alone netted us a $7 profit! CHA -CHING!

God bless your budget!

1/2-price book + free bumper sticker

21 July 2010

Although biblical principles are found throughout the book, BE is really about how the free market works (or should work, if bureaucrats don't get involved). Many misconceptions arise when the word "economics" is used, not the least of which being that economics is only about money. Noah Webster, in his 1828 dictionary put it this way in the first definition of the word "economy" : "Primarily, the management, regulation and government of a family or the concerns of a household." Rightly understood, economics is about far more than managing your money, it is about managing your spouse, your children, your time, and your mind. Economics is a measurement of value, where people place their priorities. Biblical economics is about placing value where God places value; esteeming what He esteems, desiring what He desires. In other words, biblical economics is about stewardship.

FREE BUMPER STICKER WITH YOUR ORDER: On March 23, 1775, the great patriot and founding father Patrick Henry concluded his speech to the House of Representatives with these chilling words: "Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"

This new bumper sticker is your opportunity to remind fellow Americans that government bailouts put our very freedom in jeopardy. That's right. The more power we give to the federal government over our lives, the less liberty we will enjoy.

About Me

My photo
I'm a native-born Florida Cracker, graduated Christian home schooling mom/teacher, jill of all trades and mistress of none. Rising prices and dwindling assets pushed me over the edge from casual to extreme couponing. In the first quarter of 2010, we cut our grocery budget from $1600+/- to $300! I always thought all those 'coupon queen' stories weren't for average people like me. Was I ever wrong! Just jump in and start clipping. Check out some of the super savers in my blog list. Honestly, I know you've heard this before, but REALLY, if I can do it, ANYBODY can!
