I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!

I saved 8.24 today by stopping at the closed checkout after I'd grabbed all the stuff I wanted, and forcing myself to remove 5 items (1/3 of the things I'd picked up). I kept telling myself, "if I really need it, I'll still need it in a couple of days, I'll come back for it then and get more exercise!" And the second I got home and unpacked everything, I realized I hadn't left any holes in the pantry; everything I got rid of, I will not miss.

Just because you have been through the rain of life doesn't mean I have to walk around in wet clothes forever; there is a warm towel, a big hug, and a mug of low fat cocoa waiting for you somewhere!

It was a combo of both. The actual coupon savings was only $11 or so. Most of them were one dollar off and they doubled the ones that were less than a dollar. I bought very few things that were not on sale to start with, and I had coupons for many.

How you anything is how you do everything...but don't let perfect be the enemy of good.

Question.....Were these savings from coupons that you used, or was it savings that the store passed on to you for shopping at their store...you know...like Safeway does?
Just curious. emoticon

Thought it would be kind of fun to have a place to post how much you saved today. Let's see who can save the most in 1 day, and post it here. emoticon
