Final Coutdown

It kind of feels like the final countdown. I'm trying to accomplish as much as I can before this baby comes or I end up on bed rest. I'm a month in to my crazy coupon summer, I'm not doing as good as I want to be, but still saving money.

Here's what I snatched up last week:

5 boxes of Nature Valley Granola Thins= Free

2 pkgs of Dixie paper plates= $3.00

2 packs Twizzler= $.50 each

$4.00 is not bad for all the snacks above, I can't calculate savings since I didn't save my receipt for original price, but still, fabulous! Oh, and the granola bars came with a coupon for free milk, so even cheaper here!

Both of our camping chairs broke last summer, so I found a great deal to get new babies.

2 camping chairs (reg. $10.99) on sale for $7.99

Used 2 20% off coupons

Used 2 coupons for "Free LED flashlight with any purchase"

Thanks Harbor Freight Tools!! (My husband adores that store, anybody else?)

Speaking of husbands, mine celebrated a birthday and he got homemade funnel cakes. Yum!!! I wasn't totally in love w/ the recipe, I felt it was a little too thick, but still delicious with caramel, powdered sugar and cinnamon.

To spoil hubby a little extra I couponed one of his favorite things- Minute Maid Lemonade. I bought 5 cases of the lemonade cans for $5. Hot! (We'll see how long it lasts, we sure cruised through them this 4th:)

I'm still working hard on getting freezer meals ready too. This is a Spaghetti Sausage Nest, it's actually very delicious, I'll post the recipe soon.

In my freezer I have:

4 bags grilled cajun chicken, sliced

4 containers of beef and bean taco filling

1 Spaghetti Sausage nest

1 Funeral Potato Casserole

Not bad right? Today for dinner I'm making homemade chicken nuggets, I'm tripling the recipe and going to freeze the extra. Throw some quick potatoes and steamed carrots on the side and we're in business!

And in between all of that, I'm just getting bigger:)

I never did properly thank you for your personal coupon class last week. ♥ I went and spent about $25, only saved $4...I have a lot yet to learn and tackle. LOL!

Now that we're back from our week of adventure, I need to get unpacked, order the paper and get this coupon thing in gear!!! :)

You are a force to be reckoned with!! When I was that far along I was lucky if I made it to the bathroom by myself.
You look adorable! When is the little guy scheduled to make his appearance.
Thanks for the sweet comments on my blog. I am working hard and it feels amazing to get the results.

I just loved your talk and idea on the Holy Ghost, I will be giving it at my granddaughter's baptism. I am also going to print out the bookmarks to for all the children that will be attending. (there are 7 cousins).
Thank you for sharing.
