Just call me the Crazy Coupon Lady

This weekend, I have used more coupons than I have used my whole entire life.  Ha!  Remember Eric and I set a budget.  And we are sticking to our budget.  Here is my weekend.

1.  Saturday, my mom gave me two $5 off coupons to a grocery store.  You had to spend $30 to get $5 off.  Which is no problem for us.  I had Corbin and Allie steer one buggy, and I had the other.  So I had the cashier ring up two separate orders and saved $10.  Score!

2.  My kids wanted lunch after the grocery shopping.  So I went to Sonic.  I got Sonic coupons in the mail on Friday.  We had to each have separate orders to use our coupons.  Ha!  But we saved $4.

3.  Allie had gotten Build A Bear reward certificates ($10 each) in the mail a couple of weeks ago.  She had a great report card and tried her best in soccer, so we went to Build A Bear.  I told her I would give her $5 if she needed it.  My girl is a smart shopper.  She decided on a Small Fry and two outfits.  I only had to pay $4.04.  That's the cheapest I have every left the mall.  Go Allie!

4.  Then Corbin wanted a pair of pink football gloves.  Yep, you heard me right.  Pink!?!?  So we
went to Dicks Sporting Goods.  Eric had given me a $10 off coupon a while back. I had forgotten I had the coupon until I got into my car.  I made Corbin and Allie go back in with me to use the coupon.  The cashier gladly took the coupon and gave me back $10.92. 

5.  Since C and A were cooperating and in good spirits, I decided to tackle some Christmas shopping.  I had a $100 gift card from the Disney store.  Somehow I received it after out Disney trip this past summer.  I purchased all 4 of my nieces and one little girl from church Christmas gifts.  I spent NO MONEY.  Winner, winner Chicken Dinner!

6.  Sunday, after church, Eric wanted to go to LJS.  Yep, I had coupons.  I had the cashier ring 3 different orders and saved $ 6.25. 

I used to get so embarrassed when my mom would use coupons. But now, I totally understand why.  My mom was the first person I called to celebrate my victories!  Ha!
