After watching stocks drop, people losing jobs due to lay offs, learning that the government has lots tons of money and is now broke .... it did not sound like a promising life!!! So I decided why not give the life of a Frugal Mom a try ! I even did a little research, when I was grocery shopping today I of course took my calculator that I had not done in a long time and keep my self on a small minimal budget. I only purchased what was on sale and when they had those 10 for $6 I jumped on the deal.
Once I got to the register she rang it up .. it came to 145.00 .. OMG I honestly almost had a damn stroke... I said .. " oh my god I just spent too much money, how could that be " she then realized she did not put my card in to where it took it right down to $120.00 like I expect it to me!! THANK GOD ... though then something clicked ... I asked her if I was to bring in coupons would they honor them even off the sales that Walbuams already offers... she said YES .. as an example: If they have a sale for eggs.... 1.99 for a dozen and you have a 1.99 off of a dozen .. you get that dozen free. I got so excited and even more when she told me story's about people here that would come in and shop... But the best was her aunts story ... how she would walk out with ton's of FREE products in just one shopping trip!! She does it all the time. So if she can do it .. why can't I!!
And so between that .. and entering sweepstakes ( YES I am going to give it a try ) let's see how far I get.
Maybe you have some ideas you would like to share with me .... Please do :)
