Laundry Detergent Bargin

This week I stocked up on laundry detergent at CVS with the Extra sale. They had extra laundry detergent on sale for $1.49. I had traded for 10 $1/1 extra coupons. I paid a little over $5 for 10 bottles of 50oz laundry detergent. Which = .49 plus tax each. I now have 14 bottles total of laundry detergent in my stockpile! I think I'm stocked up for a while.

An Opportunity to Bless Someone

We take so much for granted and need to slow down and think of how we can bless those who are going through difficult times. I have a friend, Rachel, who had a 13oz micro preemie who lived in the NICU the first four months of her life before going home to be with Jesus. Rachel has started a yearly preemie onesie drive in her daughter's memory. She collects, preemie onesies, outfits and clothes up to 3 months and gives them to the neonatal nursery where her daughter lived her four months. Rachel also collects, receiving blankets and socks for the babies. The neonatal nursery cares for up to around 100 babies.

Rachel, shares on her blog ( how the journey isn't easy with your child in the NICU. She was given an annonymous onesie when her daughter was in there, and Rachel was greatly blessed by this act of kindness from a complete stranger.

The delivery date for these items to the NICU is March 9th. We really need to collect these things asap so I can get them to Rachel.

If you would rathar give a monatary gift I would see that it was used to buy onesies etc. for the drive.

I'm excited to see what our small blog can do to bless these tiny babies and their families.

Thanks so much in advance!

Saved $127 Spent $14.85 So Far In 2011

We're only into the 14th day of the year and I've already saved $127. this year and spent $14.85.

I've been back to Food Lion and bought 2 more of the spaghetti for $1. I found 2 more of the $1 coupons. I also bought 2 more of the Healthy Choice soups, some bananas, and 2 more containers of the bestlife butter spread. I had coupons, of course, for everything except the bananas. Not sure how this happened but I paid only for the bananas. The soups should have cost $1. I only paid $1.30 and the bananas were $1.16 plus .14 tax. I'm not complaining at all!!

I got 2 of the pure protein bars, 1 of the Johnson and Johnson baby bars of soap, and 4 boxes of the fiber one honey clusters cereal. I paid 4.26 for all of this and .26 was tax. The only thing I really paid for was $1 a box for the cereal.

I was really excited with my free paper towels. With what I got yesterday and today I probably have around 9 rolls. They're tan so they aren't the prettiest but hey, they were free. A pack that big in the store would cost you several dollars!!

Food Lion Freebies and Great Deals That You Can Grab This Week.

I'm normally not a huge couponer at Food Lion because they don't double coupons but this week will be different. I will be couponing there this week. BestLife Buttery Spread is on sale there this week for $1. There was a $1 coupon in Jan.2nd newspaper. I'm also going to grab some of the Healthy Choice soups. They're also $1 this week and $1/2 coupon was also in this past sunday's paper. .50 a piece for Healthy Choice soup is not a bad deal at all.
