A work in coupon binder

Thanks to my fellow bloggers, I have gotten great ideas on organizing my coupons. I actually used this today and didn't feel as flustered like I always do when I take all 3 kids out.
I got the binder as well as the baseball card holders at Wal-Mart. The zippered pouch came with the binder which also zips. There are dividers to the left where I have stored my circulars and grocery list. To the right I have me coupons simply organized, such as dry food, cold food, health and beauty. I am sure I will reorganize until I find what works best.

Old Navy What a great deal!

Looks like I will be shopping for Malaina this weekend!

I had over 20 Free Marcal Product coupons so I have been going between 2 stores this past week getting all of them.
I got 2 Glade Wisp Flameless candles for Free at Kleins, they are on sale this week for $5 and I just happen to have 2 $5 off coupons.
I actually got 2 Glade Scented Oil Warmers from Food Lion for free when I used my catalina's from yesterday, I even got $4 back in catalina's.

Green Giant Steamers

Wal-Mart has them for $1.27 and there is a $1/1 coupon from a couple weeks ago as well as internet printables if you can find one. I have tried several sites but haven't been able to print any. Let me know if you see any I can print. Thanks!

New Pillsbury Savorings...

I had a coupon for these so I said hey why not try them I can't resist anything that has to do with pizza, lol!
I ate 3 and then decided they were too greasy for my taste but if you want to try them out you can go here for $1.00 off coupon as well as other pillsbury coupons.

Evening Rite Aid Trip

Went this evening to Rite Aid after getting Malaina from the bus and it was a pain with all 3 kids but I got what I went in for 12 bottles of Dawn and 1 Suave Lotion. I have 20 $1 off 2 Dawn and they are on sale right now for .99. There was a coupon in the paper for $1.00 off any Suave product, it is also on sale for $1.99 so I got it for .99!
I spent $7 and saved $7. Dawn is one of those items I always run out of and always seem to forget when I go grocery shopping so I am glad I got it stock piled now.

Food Lion and my new disovery of the catalina!

For those of you like me who don't frequent Food Lion, they have a lovely machine called a Catalina. A Catalina is a machine that prints out coupons.

Cameron is ONE!!

We had a great time this afternoon, I don't know who is more exhausted me or him, lol! The theme of his party was The Very Hungry Caterpillar. He didn't care for his cake, he isn't really into sweets so he wasn't impressed by it.

Early morning CVS trip

I don't have too much time to go through my 4 transactions because I have to clean and get situated for Cameron's party this afternoon.
2-33 Count Pull Ups
3 Johnson and Johnson Buddy bars
1-L'Oreal Revitalift
1-Halloween trinket(needed because I was a $1 below on one subtotal)
4-Boxes Flavor Ice
All this for a grand Total of 18.XX

I am looking at it like BOGO for the Pull Ups and everything else FREE!!! PLUS I ran errr...walked out the door with $20 Extra Care Bucks for next week!!

Celebrating Cameron's First Birthday Today

Today we are celebrating Cameron's First Birthday. The year of being a stay at home mom for first time and being able to see everything as it happened with him has gone by as my son Anthoney would say "super fast"!
The theme of his party is the Very Hungry Caterpillar. I will post pictures after his party.
