My coupon book ripped this week. I could probably just tape it up, but I think it’s a sign that I break down and invest in a bigger system (aka, baseball card holders in a three ring binder). With the wet weather we’ve had this past week and all the craziness at work, I’ve been refocusing some of my energies on organizing my couponing efforts. My hope (fingers crossed) is that by couponing for our basic items and growing/canning the majority of our own food this summer, we’ll be able to save lots, and lots of money. And if my math is right, if we do this we’ll be able to spurge on things like farm fresh eggs and milk.
Which is exactly what we did on Saturday! Through some crazy coupon stacking we were able to get Seventh Generation dish soap and two packs of gum at Target for 89 cents, and then at CVS I was able to get the twin pack our contact solution for $7 (after extra bucks and coupons). So what should have cost me about $22, we got for $7.89. Not too shabby, and as a reward (and because the kid selling them was too damn cute) we got fresh farm eggs for omelets on this beautiful Easter Sunday.
So I hope your day was filled with as much love and family as ours was–Happy Easter from the L. Homestead!
