"Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do,
and He will show you which path to take."
~~Proverbs 3:5-6~~
I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. Jesus is Lord of my life and I strive daily to draw closer to Him. I love being a homemaker---taking care of my family and home. I enjoy couponing, cleaning, and cooking. I love to get the best deal on everything and find that yard sales and thrift stores are the perfect places for that. I have recently felt lead to write a Bible study and have been working on it in my spare time. I truly enjoy leading women's groups as we all seek to grow closer to the Lord. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy reading about what happens as I strive do all of this.

Saturday Savings Summary

Each Saturday, I plan to post a summary from my coupon/store sales.  I like to save 50-100% off of original prices for groceries, household items, and toiletries. It requires strategy, planning, and patience.  
Here is the summary from this year so far:
Original Price:  $308.88
Store Sales Savings:  $75.33
Coupon Savings:  $85.74
Total Savings:  $161.07
Final Price:  $147.81
Savings percentage:  52%

Not a bad start to 2011. I hope to blog the first of the week about my coupon binder and my coupon strategy.  I  think of it as part of "my job" and I have figured out a quick and simple way to clip, organize and use coupons.  Everybody has a different way to handle their coupons but I have found after YEARS of using them that the way that I currently handle them is what is best for me.
