"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.

Frugal Friday 12-30-11

I really meant to get a picture of the items before I put them up last night.  I went to Bi-lo, my favorite savings place, to use coupons that are expiring tomorrow.  Here is what I got:
1 Bottle ERA detergent
3 33.9 ounce cannisters of Folgers Decaf Coffee
16 bottles of Kraft BBQ sauce
1 package Idahoan Instant Potatoes
3 packages of frozen Cooked Perfect Meatballs
2 40 count packages of Tampax Tampons
2 boxes of Zesta Saltine Crackers

Total Before Sales and Coupons:  $101.02
Total After Sales and Coupons + Tax:  $17.69
Savings:  nearly 83%


  1. I was recently telling my husband how impressed I was by people like you who shopped based on coupons and save so much money. I need to get better about that. The only thing is most of the huge savings I see by bloggers who shop based on coupons are usually in the South or midwest. I don't seem to have the same kind of savings here in Los Angeles but maybe I'm just not diligent enough. I need to work on that more. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Girl, you are a savings diva! I am IMPRESSED! Glad I found you through (in)courage!

  3. Glad you both found me! :)
    I have been using coupons for years. I go not clear shelves, buy 200 of anything, or maintain a HUGE stockpile. I am just a wife and mom that is trying to feed my family for as cheap as possible. :)
    Blessings to you!
