A Farewell to My Friends

To all of my faithful followers,

I apologize, because this will come as a surprise to most of you. I am retiring from my blog.

I have felt God's gentle prompting for several months now. Between my nursing career and being a wife and mother, I just don't feel like I have the extra time to donate to this blog any longer.

I love you all, so it really pains me to leave you. I will miss my sisterhood of couponers terribly, but this is the right thing to do for me and my family.

Thank you all for following me for the last 3 years. You are all dear to me, so please stay in touch!

Happy Couponing!

DIY Button Monogram

Yes, this is yet another Pinterest craft! I'm hooked! This is a Button Monogram. This was very rewarding to make, because I was able to use my Grandmother's old buttons! All that you need for this craft is buttons, glue, background paper and a picture frame. I had everything on hand, so I made it very inexpensively.

DIY Paper Flowers

I found an easy tutorial on Pinterest on how to fold Kusudama Paper Flowers! My version is pictured above. These are very inexpensive...all you need is paper and got glue to make them!

$0.75/1 Lofthouse Cookies!

Yum. You can print this rare coupon for $0.75/1 Lofthouse Cookies! Use the zipcode 90210 to locate this coupon. These cookies are my favorite!

DIY Curtain Rod Art Display

I found this fun Curtian Rod Art Display craft on Pinterest! This is an adoreable and inexpensive way of displaying art and pictures! My version is pictured above. I purchased the curtain rod for $2.97 and the curtain clips for $7 at Walmart!

Heads up: New Thrifty DIY Tab!

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up! I have added a new "Thrifty DIY" tab to my homepage! I will be posting crafts and other DIY projects on my blog. I will keep an archive of past projects under this new tab so that they may be easily located.

My Super Savings at Kroger: 3/29!

Today at Kroger, I purchased 41 items. My total before coupons and Kroger card savings was $90.93. After coupons, I paid just $35.32 for everything pictured! That's a savings of 61%!

I was so excited to find ground beef on Manager's Special. I was able to score 12 lbs of ground beef for just $19.96 total (about $1.66/lb)! Meat prices are soaring, so this special made my day! I plan on crockpot cooking all of the beef, placing it in 1 lb freezer bags and freezing it for later use.
