Money Saving Linky!!

I ran into a blogger recently that showcases her weekly finds/deals. I thought it was a great idea! I can't help it! I get soooo excited when I score my weekly deals. I want to tell everyone and share my deals and excitement.
If you have never been to her site you should get typing on over there!!

I thought it would be cool if I started a weekly linky party of my own where we could share with each other all our super savings.  I know a lot of you have been couponing so let's give it a try! 

Last week I didn't have time to get to the grocery store until Sat. night with two boys in tow. Two boys ages 4 and 5. BIG mistake! I knew it would be a pain but I needed to get there and I didn't have any other choice. So here are my savings for the week!

Meijers Trip
I spent -107.14
I saved - 74.92

5 Brawny Paper Towels reg. 11.99 Sale 5.50 w/coupon
5 Sweet Corns
8 Boxes of Fiber One
4 Boxes of Nature Valley Granola Bars
2 Tubs of Cottage Cheese
3 Boxes of Fruit Snacks (My boys grabbed them up and I just happened 
                         to have a coupon and they were on sale so the boys scored.)
3 Packs of  Jell-O puddings
9 Boxes of Toaster strudels
8 Boxes of Honey Nut Cereal

Other big scores this week include:

Walgreens Score
Spent - 57.27
Saved - 85.94
As I look at this receipt I'm finding a couple things that were rung up wrong. My kids and hubby were waiting in the car and the register wasn't working right. I was feeling the pressure. :)

12  Bottles of Sunblock ( My tree removing hubby already scammed a bottle:)
3    Bags of Cottonelle Flushable Whip Refills

The lotion itself was reg. 10 - 13 dollars a bottle!

This hasn't been my biggest score but it was "REAL". I'm not a psycho couponer from TV I'm a real working woman with three children 7 and under. So how about you "REAL" ladies?? How are you doing in the savings department? I'm sure you can top this!

So Link Up Ladies!!

What a great idea!! I'll have to take pictures of my next shopping trip. I'm not an extreme couponer either, but I like getting good deals!
