So, as you can see...I didn't do as well as I have been. I eliminated Wal-Mart this week, just to see how I would do. I definitely think I would have saved more had I just gone to Wal-Mart and got the stuff that I needed but didn't have a coupon for. Oh well, I learned a lesson and I have a pantry full of food.

I think you did really well! Getting an Oral B toothbrush for only .48 was a SCORE! :o)

You'd think toothbrushes had been gold dipped these days.

Mother Mayhem said...

LOVE your blog colors btw. ;o)

I emailed you MrsM! Thanks so much!!

& I think that the toothbrush companies do think they have dipped their brushes in gold, because it's ridiculous how much you pay for those things. I think they should always cost .48 cent! I meant to get two toothbrushes, because I had another coupon for one, but I forgot so I'll hafta to go back and get another one. Oh, and I"m glad you like my colors :) I changed it back, because I don't think people liked the other look. It was a little inconvenient...
