Making Cents! =P

I am a coupon clipping, binder carrying, deal searching coupon-er!
It only makes cents to be! hehehe ;)
It can be alot of fun! I love to see how great I can do, and what items I pay little to nothing or nothing for! A coupon nerd of some sort... and that's ok with me. I have no problem with keeping more money in my pocket! So this past Sunday evening, a couple of friends and I set off to Harris Teeter, (they are having double coupons up to $1.98, which is awesome!) to see how well we could do! We did great! I must share my experience because I got completely excited about it! It was probably a little ridiculous to be that excited over couponing, but bring it on, I was totally excited, even the cashier was excited, which led to more excitement!!! I think I even blushed! I purchased 14 items...

2 boxes of Fiber One cereal
4 bottles of Ken's salad dressing
1 jar Welch's Jelly
2 bottles of Suave lotion
1 bottle of Pert Plus
2 Sure deodorants
2 packs of Bic ink pens
2 packages of Sargento shredded cheese

WITHOUT coupons this would have cost $30.29 on sale, but WITH coupons
Dum Dah Dah Dum - drum roll please :)

My bill totaled $3.99!!!
Yep, For what one box of cereal normally costs, I got all of that!

Couponing does pay off, you just have to know how to work it and maximize it to your benefit!
It was awesome!

So, here I am! I have been wanting to start a blog for a while now, but have been afraid of posting... I can't really explain why, I guess just the fear of the unknown. I have decided that it is time to get on with it, as you can see. So, if for any reason this isn't up to par with other blogs (and I don't expect it to be at this point) just bear with me. I enjoy reading the blogs of others and thought it might be interesting to have my own to share my thoughts and the happenings in my life with others as well.

I suppose since I am new to this, it might be a good time to share some things about myself. I am 29 and will remain 29 forever (shhh! stop laughing)! I am the wife of an amazing man (we recently celebrated 10 years), and a homeschooling mama to a wonderful little girl! She is just fantastic! I am a professional cake designer when I have the time! I'll share some work soon! My favorite color is purple, and turquoise as of recently... I love antiques, adore vintage items, Marilyn Monroe, warm weather, fashion, decorating, swimming, outdoors, animals (partial to kitty cats!) reading, learning, writing, cooking, baking, the beach, mountains, thunderstorms, and time with family and friends!

I am really excited to be beginning this blog and hope you enjoy!
