I went through their ad and circled the best deals. I then took out all the coupons I had for those deals. I headed to the local CVS and had a great time! I thought it went well for my first time. I hope to get better at this, so that I can keep my family stocked and be able to help others by donating.
Today, I stocked up on toothpaste! They had Colgate toothpaste for buy one/get one and I had three 75 cent coupons. Also, I was able to get quite a bit of gum. They had it for $1.00 (regularly $1.49) and I had coupons for buy one/ get one free. I was also able to get a free hair styling product!! I spent $29.79 (with tax) and ended up saving $34.14 between store sales and coupons. All in all I thought this was a good trip.
I would love to hear how everyone else saves on grocery and household items. Have a wonderful Friday!

We have been able to have some really great field trips this school year. The information that we receive at these places is wonderful. I appreciate how everyone at the places we have visited put so much passion into what they are doing.
We are enjoying the days of autumn here. The weather has been absolutely amazing this week. Watching the leaves change is always a fun event. We are near a state park that is having hayrides all through October. We hope to be able to take part in one of those. I would imagine that you could see some awesome leaves during this hayride!
This month has been full of birthdays in our family. My dad celebrated his birthday earlier in the month, and just this week we celebrated my mother-in-law's birthday. My youngest son will be celebrating his 15th birthday this weekend. What a wonderful month!
Have a super Thursday and enjoy autumn!

And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour." Ephesians 5 1-2 KJV
"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak." Ephesians 6:10-20 KJV
Have a blessed Lord's Day!
