Recent successes

19 Sep

I remembered to check the clearance section at the grocery store. Aluminum-free baking powder was half off.  After checkout I saw there was a store coupon that brought the price down to 50 cents/can.  Went back and got more; this time the store actually owed me money. First time ever.  Woo, extreme couponing, look out.  Also got some different kinds of applesauce on clearance and worked the Just for U program to save 40% overall.  I’m doing better at stocking up when things are on sale.  The emergency food stash is growing.

Started making yogurt.  Huge savings, much to my surprise.

A pile of 50 cent books at the thrift store for #1 child’s classroom.

… and failure: a trip for frozen yogurt where The Other Adult came along. $10.50.  Ouch.  I should have looked for coupons online.
