About Me

I'm a Utah mom, just trying to make ends meet. Several years ago, I was introduced to a new way of couponing. I've been addicted ever since. I have a hard time paying full price for anything anymore.

I love couponing so much, I decided to become a teacher for Grocery Smarts.

I teach free classes and show you how to get everything you need at the grocery store and still leave $$$ in your pocket. I'll also teach you the best ways to get and organize your coupons. The best part of the class is when I show you how to match your current coupons up with the current local sales - getting the most bang for your buck!

Can you feel it in the air?

I really must admit, I love this time of year. Warm days, cool evenings and mornings are the best. We planted a couple of new trees in our yard this year (Maples - Autumn Blaze) and a couple of the leaves are already starting to turn red. Along with the changes of season, come changes in what you'll start to see on sale.

This time of year often brings on a sense of "storing" for the winter. You will start to see case lot sales happening in the next couple of weeks at a variety of stores. Hopefully you've budgeted well and didn't spend all your stash on back to school supplies and clothes for the kids.

As I realized this Labor Day holiday - is probably the last big BBQ of the season it got me to thinking.....what kind of supply do I have on condiments. Summer is the time to really stock up on those BBQ items (ketchup, mustard, BBQ sauce, pickles, paper products etc...). I went down to my (still messy) cold storage to take a visual inventory and I've done well with everything, but mustard. I did not have any mustard! How could I have gone all summer with out picking up mustard???? I did a mad dash to this weeks ads to see if I could find any on sale at Albertsons (this is where I'm going shopping this week). Whew....with great relief they actually had a 10 for $10 deal on mustard!

So I'm challenging you to take an inventory on your condiment supply to make sure you have enough to get you through the colder months or at least until the next sale!

Stacy- thanks for your comment on my blog. I appreciate the prayers. Hey do you see Chay anymore? You should ask him about his college film he made called "A penny earned is a penny saved"
