Super Savings Saturday saved 80% @ Kroger!!!

Yay... I finally did some coupon shopping again!!! :o) There were so many things at Kroger this past week that I just couldn't pass up. So I made my list and went shopping the first night at 9:30. It was nice to shop that late... the store was super empty. I like shopping when it's not as busy, I feel that it's easier for me to take my time and not get rushed. This was all done in 4 transactions over the course of 2 days.

Total Spent: $35.43
Total Saved: $148.14 or 80%

Wooohooo!!!! It feels good to be back into couponing!!! :o) Also since i'm going to Alabama this weekend for my hubby's family reunion I will make this my Super Savings Saturday post since I haven't done one in quite a while!!! So how did you do this week? Feel free to link up below!!!

Where have I been???

So.... I hate that I haven't blogged in FOREVER. I haven't been doing much couponing here lately. I haven't even bought a paper in probably 3 weeks. BUT I am trying to slowly get back into couponing. I am now working 5 days a week- just shy of 40 hours a week. I have been staying super busy with anywhere from 5-7 clients a day. So this has been a huge adjustment for me. My daily routine is: get up, get ready, take Keaton to daycare, work from 9-5, pick Keaton up, figure out something for my family to eat, spend a few hours with Keaton & the hubby, put Keaton to bed, do some cleaning, go to bed. I usually hop into bed around midnight. I've been running to walmart when I get free time and spending WAY more than I want to. So after balancing the checkbook and seeing how much money I'm wasting i'm trying to get back into my old routine. So please bear with me while I get back on track. I will be doing a giveaway for a $25 gift card to Kroger soon!!! So stay tuned!!! :o) Hopefully once I figure out better time management I can get back to blogging!!!
