Coupon Savings Monday!!

I know!! It's been a while since I have done a Coupon Savings Monday, and thats mainly because I haven't had a grocery shopping trip worth mentioning in a while. I'm not sure why, other than the fact that the Hubs has been doing the grocery shopping over the past few weeks & quiet frankly...not doing a good job. I decided last Sunday that I was gonna start doing it again. Bottom line, I HATE grocery shopping. Nevertheless, I got ALOT of stuff this week for next to nothing. So, here's what happened:
Althought I didnt have any coupons for BiLo, I did get a good bit of stuff on sale:

This is my favorite :)

- Kellogs Nutrigrain Bars: On Sale for 2.39 + FREE Gallon of Milk when you buy 2 + 1.00 off coupon = 3.78
TOTAL: 12.01


So, over all, I think it was a pretty good week for groceries. We would have spent less than that, but alot was for Bree's birthday party (Hence the 3, 12 packs of Pepsi products). My favorite thing was definitely the Target deal. Free Gallon of Milk?! I mean, you really can't do much better than that. I am tempted to go back and get another because I have another 1.00 off coupon for the Nutrigrain bars. I get excited when I save money like that. It makes me smile :)

How was everyone's weekend? Ours was okay. We went to a wedding Saturday night. I've known this girl my entire life, and it was probably one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever been too.

I took this picture from the balcony. Not with my Canon Rebel, which I wish I had taken with me.

It's a pretty gloomy day here in the South. Being lazy is definitely on the agenda after I vacuum the floors, do some laundry, mop the kitchen, wait a minute...that doesn't sound like a lazy day to me. Oh well. Lazy days don't exist for Mamas now do they? Have a happy Monday! Oh & I lost a Follower, so if you stopped Following me, lemme know what I do/did wrong & come back!! Pwease? Pwretty pwease with a cherry on top?

Great shot of the bride and groom! :o)

Milk and gas are about tied right now. I'm thinking of buying a cow that would let Jack ride her to work.

Thank you :)

& Milk is a bit on the crazy side, and gas is headed back into that direction. Paid 2.29 for it the other day, BUT this time last year we would have done anything to pay only 2.29 for gas. So, I'm not complaining...yet :)
