Galations 2:20-21

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly." Galations 2:20-21

My mom and I recently started Super-Couponing. Super-Couponing "combines the best techniques for following sales with using newspaper and internet coupons to their fullest advantage."

In these tough economic times I've been desperate to find any and all ways to cut back. It's hard when you already feel like you cut back as far as you can go. A family friend posted a note on facebook about her success with SC and it intrigued me. A few weeks ago I ordered Jill's Super-Couponing workshop on DVD. The next week my mom and I attended her 2nd workshop at a local church.

With little work or effort (thanks to the internet and the many women who do all the leg work) I was able to save A LOT of money. Just two weeks into it and look at what I did today!

-30 boxes of Betty Crocker Potatoes
-3 boxes of Chex cereal
-1/2 gallon of orange juice
-I bag traditional Chex mix
-1 box Cutie manderines
-Olay body wash
-2 Gillette Men Hair & Body wash
-Travel sized women's shaving gel
-2 tubes Arm & Hammer toothpaste
-1 tube crest toothpaste
-2 bars Johnson baby soaps
-Excedrin Menstrual Complete
-Pep. Farm Tim Tams
-Gillette Fusion Razor
-Gillete Venus Razor
-4 new placemats
-PicturiKa card game
-Trident Layers gum
-1 caramel candy

All of this for only $39.76! PLUS, I also have $12 worth of catalina coupons and Register Rewards
(store money)! It's like paying $27.76 for that whole table of groceries!

You really do have to change your mindset about how you shop. Don't be intimidated. It's WELL worth your time!

I'm really excited to see where I will be 2 months from now. It can only get better, right?

If you are interested in Super-Couponing, here are a list of websites that are helpful:

Jill Cataldo's Super Couponing Website
(this is the best source) She is also local (NW suburbs of Chicago), which is also really helpful. She shops at all the stores I do!

A few Videos

Here are a couple videos of the little guy. Sometimes I think he just can't wait until his dad gets home to play.

Oh yeah, this kid will try to eat anything

Last night we had a little reunion with our Bradley class. It was so much fun to meet everyone's little ones and hear all of their birth stories. Even though they were all different, the result was the same-Beautiful, handsome baby boys! Yes, we all had boys! It really was a great class and I look forward to getting together with them again.
