I shop frequently at Costco, so I buy in bulk. If I get anything that comes in a multi pack, I make all but the last item with a "HR" in marker. The "HR" means I have a replacement somewhere. Works for stuff like ketchup and canned goods that I buy multiples of on sale.

Money, money, money, MONEY!!! Remember that old song? I took on a whole lot this week. First I ordered inserts for coupining. I had to do this as our small town doesn't have much in the couponing dept. You can go to TLCextremecouponing.com and check out the sites (some are tricky, trying to get you to look at their sites). And I joined SP. I got the coupon in the mail today. I went to a neighboring city whose biggest grocery store advertised all kinds of buy one get one free's. I looked
through all my coupons and VIOLA!!! I had coupons that I had duplicates of and could use on both the item I paid for and the item I got free, bringing down further the amount I paid for it. Definitely worth checking out the t.v. show EXTREME COUPONING.236
I listed every item in my kitchen cabinet (spices and baking ingredients, etc) when I cleaned it out tonight and created a document to put on the inside of the door for easy reference. The list tells me which shelf the item is on and if I have more than one of the item. This will help me when checking ingredients for new recipes as well as helping me avoid duplicating items in the future. I plan to do this with each cabinet as I get to them.334
