If you are here for the first time, I am taking some time off from this blog but I encourage you to please visit the links on the right. I have learned GREAT tips from these bloggers about how to get my groceries for fabulous prices. Some of these women post how they get things for free or almost free by clipping coupons. You don't have to subscribe to the paper either, there are tons of sites where you can print your own coupons. Don't forget to use them at stores that double and triple their value.

Also, please read my earlier post about knowing your prices. I have created a spreadsheet where I list the prices that 4 different stores charge for the items I buy. I look at my store's ads online each Wednesday and find out what it on sale, what I have coupons for, and what store coupons are available.

I've let my self down!

If you are still coming to my blog, I can't believe it. I was so gung ho about my adventures in savings. I thought for sure I'd have MORE time to keep up with this blog once summer break got here but it just hasn't worked out that way. My pregnancy had me "under the weather" for the entire month of June and I just had time today to clip coupons from the last 4 papers. That's sad!

Yesterday, while my 2 older kids were in VBS and the 18 mo. old was taking a morning nap, was the first time I've had all summer to give my house some attention.

So I hate to do this but I'm just gonna have to say I may not be back until the new school year starts. That will be my 2nd trimester and hopefully I'll have my energy back. I won't delete this blog though because I have some fabulous links.
