Hello everyone!

Hi friends... I haven't been hearing much in the way of comments from anyone out there lately, and I'm wondering, are these deals working for you guys? Should I keep taking the time to post the deals I find and sharing them.. or am I talking to an empty auditorium? LOL, I know it isn't necessary for anyone to comment, just click and go get a good deal, but it has been VERY QUIET!

I know I haven't been taking pics of my recent shopping deals..and since I haven't been tracking my monthly spending online (our current budget is $300 for groceries, health and beauty, paper and now eating out (this wasn't included before when we were shooting for just $100 a month).) I know it isn't as ambitious as before...but my average from January through June was $200 (or a little less, or a little more..but really very steady) So after "running out" of budget money after 6 months, we adjusted the budget to reflect that spending, allow for a few more fresh veggies and allow for our eating out. Our eating out does NOT include a $100 budget, but we are also giving ourselves a little more wiggle room, and we do not HAVE to spend it.

With school back in session, I both have more time to shop and less. Does that make sense? I mean, I can shop while the girls are in school, but I need to have more done before dinner and bedtime and homework time so I can spend that time with them or doing things for them.

So that puts our weekly budget at $75 or less, including eating out. Really, I have been closer to the $200 a month with my shopping and we have had the ability to buy a few extras here and there and grab a quick meal at Crispers, or Boston Market once a week. We may cut that out though and shoot for a $250 a month since the $300 is a bit more than we NEED.

Hey, isn't $75 a week still pretty good? Some of my girlfriends that practice extreme couponing don't think so! (You know who you are, ladies!). They can spend less than $20 a week most times (seriously), but it does take a little more finagling and some great store sales and coupon flyers. I am actually pretty happy with my more modest goal, but it is still a great savings for our family!

What do you all think? To those that are also doing extreme budgeting, how have you been doing? Do you all miss the pics of the great shopping trips? Do you like the quick updates of freebies and good deals and some fun coupons and links to other deals listed? Let me know, dear readers, how you feel! Just checking things out!

Blessings to all,
Tracey C.

Kids Eat FREE Every Day @ Boston Market! YES!

EXCELLENT! Boston Market has a really great promotion available through October 31st! The new promotion is called, "Two Kids Eat FREE" dining program. Two children, ages 14 and younger, can receive a FREE kids’ meal all day, every day with only one adult purchase of just $6 or more! Wahoo! The best part--there is NO coupon needed to snag the FREE kids meal. This means that you may also be able to use a Boston Market coupon to save even more on any Adult meals purchased! For instance, buy 2 adult meals for around $14, use the $2/$10 coupon and for $12 Feed your family of 3-6! If there is a question about getting, say, 3 kids meals free with two adult purchases, simply pay seperately! Hubby gets kids one-two and you get kids 3-4 (or whatever!) Of course, if you only have one, or two sweet little people puppies to feed, you don't need to worry about that at all! Sweeet! You can currently print a $2 off any $10 Boston Market purchase coupon here, valid thru October 21st.

Thanks It's Hip to Save! for this GREAT deal alert!

**Also, don't forget to check out this post from It's Hip to Save! and learn how you can "roll" buy one get one FREE deals at Boston Market!

Tide Clearance @ Walgreens!


Be on the lookout for TIDE Total Care (regular size) 20 load bottle. This is ringing up for $2.29 at most of the stores around here, though only 1 store had it marked with a clearance sticker. 50 oz size, the "regular" 20 load size NOT the bigger bottle. Have them scan it to check the price. Use the $1/1 any Tide coupons from the 8/30 (most recent) Proctor & Gamble Sunday insert. Get cheap Tide! ALSO!!! Look for the Lavender and Vanilla 40oz (purple bottle) which was also on clearance for $2.29. I only found a few of these at one store. Heads up but your results may vary: Check for Tide to go minis ($1.59), Resolve Spray for carpets, Spray N Wash (only saw one type, but you never know!) Scotch nail saver sponges/dishes, All Small and Mighty (aqua bottle) (less than $2), Febreze Candles, Febreze Auto spray (in automotive section), and so much more! There were so many new markdowns in some of my local stores and I really scored on the Tide, my favorite! Also check the Thermos containers (small size) for kids lunches (or yours), perfect for coming colder weather and for sending soup! The character ones were $17.99 and marked down to $8, CARS and Disney Princesses. If not marked, ask them to scan to be sure! Hope this helps you all find some grea deals! Go with your coupons because these items go really fast!

Remember you can print at least 2 of each of these simply by clicking the back arrow/button on your browser. Or you can just go to the home page and print again. usually lets you print 2 of each coupon. Great coupon! Hurry before the limits are reached and they pull the coupons!

Possible FREE Huggies Baby Wipes!

Thanks to reader Catherine for this heads up! Head on over to and print out the coupon for $1.50 off any one Huggies Diaper product. This likely includes wipes since they are a diapering product! Catherine suggests using the coupon at Walmart where the wipes were $1.50 for the 64 count at her local Walmart. Your results/mileage may vary..but print the coupon NOW..these coupons disappear FAST. Was still showing for me and was on page 6....may be different for your area. Hurry! Of course, you can use the coupon for diapers too! :) Thanks again Catherine.

By the way, you may want to consider saving the coupon for a good sale if you can't find the wipes cheap at Walmart. Look at for the $3/1 Huggies Overnights coupons & $3 off Huggies Pure and Natural diapers too, if they are products you (or a friend) can use.
