About Me

My photo
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".

On a quest for Ocean Spray at HEB--Saturday shopping at HEB & Walgreens

Since I have a pretty great stockpile, when I go to HEB, it is just for the best deals. This morning I was on a quest to get the almost free  32 ounce Ocean Spray cranberry juice cocktail. I went to three HEBs before I found them.
Here's the Ocean Spray deal:
Buy 2 Ocean Spray 32 ounce at $0.88 each =$1.76 - $1.50 for 2 =$0.26 for 2 or $0.13 each after coupon!!
After visiting 3 HEB's,  I bought $107.10 worth of groceries and spent $26.82 cash OOP.  I saved $80.28 by using coupons!!
Then I was off to Walgreens....................................

Walgreens..........I visited Walgreens this morning for the Saturdate. I picked up lots of very cheap Revlon eye makeup and Crest toothpaste. This afternoon I went to another Walgreens to grab some of the big packs of Huggies Wipes (they turn next weeks sale price Saturday evening).

I also picked up some Conexion Newspapers with some inserts included!!

I had lots of fun shopping while Darlin Dan was playing a round of golf. Now it's time to plan for next week!

We're back!

We're back from the beach and today I'll be shoppin til I drop. Darlin Dan is playin' golf and I'm hittin' my favorite stores!! I'll be going back to my full time job on Monday.....I'm so sad that another summer is over. Although I've worked my part time jobs, I've thoroughly enjoyed my summer.  I've had  some free time to shop and bake. I read a couple of books and enjoyed the pool. Yes, it's been tooooo hot this summer. Makes me appreciate the rain a little bit more.

Having a blast at the beach!

Having a wonderful time at the Mustang Towers on Mustang Island. We've enjoyed our vacation! We'll be packing up and heading home soon...................

Can I handle a week at the Beach?

We made it- we're at the beach!  We arrived Saturday afternoon and this is the first time I've been on my computer. This year our trip is funded by our yard sale profits! Our goal is to not touch our debit or credit cards! We are completely stocked up with food and drink- thanks to stockpiling during the year at my favorite stores, Walgreens, CVS, and HEB. Mustang Island is only about 2.5-3 hours away from home, so the gas bill will not bankrupt us.   We also brought several gift cards that I've been collecting from rebates. The biggest question on my mind is how in the world am I going to stay away from Walgreens & CVS for a week?
