Hey, Y'all!

It's been a while since I have sent out any coupon updates.  I have been soooo bizzy with my big family.  I wish I could afford to pay someone to shadow me during my daily routine.  That would surely be a viral video.  I feel like a real grandma.  Cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, doing dishes, checking homework, making snacks, putting bandaids on microscopic booboos, settling spats, combing hair, and just listening to what they say and don't say. WHEW!  I got out of breath just typing that. 

Thankfully, tomorrow we start with a brand new chore chart.  We had one this summer but never really did anything with it.  I usually just grabbed someone as they walked by to do whatever had to be done at the time.  This worked okay for the youngest kids (ages 4 to 9).  However, we have four teenagers and a preteen who quickly figured out how to avoid me and any chores. 

So, now since school routines have settled in, we are going forward with our chore chart.  I will have to let you know how this pans out later.

I am currently on a 4 to 6+ week challenge to refrain from purchasing any meat products of any kind.  My two freezers and three refrigerator freezers are so tightly packed that I could barely stuff in a package of bacon.  So, rather than spend more money on more meats, we decided to save money by eating what we have on hand.  We are only buying bread, dairy, eggs, fresh fruit, veggies, juice, and toiletries for the next 4 to 6 weeks.  This is the end of week 2 and we have been pretty good at sticking to our challenge. 

My job is to scan the freezers and make a menu (breakfast & dinner) from what we have on hand.  I cleaned out my freezers a few weeks ago to make it easier to see what we have.  That was the best thing I have done all summer.  I organized it according to meats, poultry, seafood, frozen prepared meals, frozen make ahead meals, veggies, and fruit.  I did make a video but have not posted it just yet.  I should have it up by late Saturday.  I will be sure to send you the link when it is up and ready to go.  No frills, just the video.

There are some great sales coming up at Harries Teeter next week (Super Doubles double coupons with face value up to $2) and ShopRite where they double coupons with a face value up to $1.  Also, I have been doing quite a bit of shopping at Aldi's and Save-a-lot.  Aldi's brands are very good and they offer a double guarantee (they will refund your money and replace the item) if you are not pleased.  I have tried several of their items and have been pleased with all except some veggie chips.  They were just plain gross.  I took them back and got my money back.  I chose not to get the item replaced.

Next, I know several of you have been asking about coupon classes.  I have been quite busy with my eight grandkids (minus the two who are away in school) and their father who now reside with my husband and I.  It is coming up on a year in November and we have come a very long way but still have a long journey ahead of us all. Anyway, I will not be doing another coupon class this year.  I am teaching four financial bootcamp classes on four Sundays at my church during the church school hour in Nov & Dec.  Hopefully, I will be able to return to coupon classes in January.  I will do my very best to stay in touch via coupon videos and the weekly coupon deals updates.   Next week, I will share with you some of the links I used to teach myself the art of the deals using coupons.
