About Me

My photo
I have two kids - a girl and a boy - and live in north-central Minnesota, land of snow and ice. Well, for 9 months of the year, that is. I work full-time for a local government, and on my "free time" I enjoy cooking, baking, hanging out with my kiddos, and RELAXING.

And This Is Why I Use Coupons

I love coupons.

Have I mentioned that before?

How much would you guess this all cost?

Retail Value (before sales or coupons) was $225.25

Sale prices brought the total to $207.37

Coupons brought the total to $131.26

I saved $17.88 on sale priced items and $76.11 with coupons for a total savings of $93.99.

I love it when I can match coupons with sale items.

Some highlights:
