- I'm so addicted to couponing and chasing a good deal. Thank goodness I have a wonderful husband We've been married 12 years. (He must love me very much because he puts up with my couponing and low carb cooking)!!! We live in San Antonio, home of the NBA champions, San Antonio Spurs!! I am a big Dallas Cowboys fan and have always admired my favorite player, Roger Staubach. We belong to a Texas Hold 'em Poker League and have made some really good friends while playing poker. I am a proud Grandmother and love spending time with my "munchkins".

It was crazy trying to get away from San Antonio on Friday. We both worked half day and had to get end of month reports/paperwork done. We had both been working non-stop last week. I did the serious packing Thursday night until midnight and got up at 4:30am on Friday t0 get to work as early as I could. As it was, I didn't get home until after 1 Friday afternoon. It took us an hour to load up the truck and off we go!!
We're having a great time! Fishing, swimming, eating, playing games, watching movies.............sleeping late cuz we're staying up late.............to be continued

We've been fighting with getting our pool under control and we were almost there and we got some much needed rain for a couple of days a week or so ago. After the rain, the pool got very green and we haven't been able to get rid of it. Now, we discovered a dead creature in the pool and we're all freaked out and have decided to start over. What a mess and hassle and expense.

Back to the challenge-
Tried to find more Ecotrins at WAGS since they were a $2 money maker. Darlin Dan took me hounding Friday night to 3 different WAGS and we couldn't find any--I ended up blowing some RR's on clearance items-
I actually had to work today-it was our last day for the school year-on a Saturday!
We left for Corpus Christi around noon. This overnight trip cost us about $130-room, gas, and food included. Room $65, Gas $30, 3 meals-$35 (we're super cheap when it comes to eating out).
We actually found Ecotrins in Corpus Christi! We did 2 deals- $4 money maker!
Attended graduation ceremony and a BBQ after.
We bought 10 Corpus Christi Sunday newspapers- at $1.50 each- $.50 cheaper than at home.
However, this was not such a perfect deal, much to my dismay. Corpus Christi inserts, do NOT have all the coupons we get in San Antonio. When I got home, I compared the inserts, and discovered they had fewer coupons in the inserts. Boo Hoo. I'm assuming that maybe the amount of coupons are issued according to the population?
No other shopping today. Visiting and traveling home.
We cut the yard when we got home!
Weird day- NO SCHOOL!
I worked my part time job for 4 hours.
I bought 5 more San Antonio Sunday papers and gave 2 to Amanda. ($10 OOP)
Went CVSing with Amanda and spent $ .77 OOP!!
I took this picture with my new phone-not bad!
I spent $12 ECBs and got back back $10 ECBs!
All this for $ .77!!
2 boxes of Frosted Flakes (for our week at the coast)
2 grape jellies (for vacation)
2 Dawn liquid dish detergent(will take one on vacation)
1 Contour meter-Amanda donated one of her coupons!
1 Fusion gamer razors with bonus trial items
2 boxes of Hefty bags
Tomorrow we are going to WAGS!!
My vacation box is full and I'm starting a second box!

Sweet Jessica made dinner last night. I went home and went right for the bed. My stomach decided to act up!
Sweet Amanda scattered some fertilizer on the lawn yesterday. It looked like a storm, but it never happened. I was able to water down the yard this morning before I left for work. I wasn't up to it last night.
I was able to score 12 smart source inserts from the freebie neighborhood paper today!
