It’s been a crazy week, and I’m just trying to keep up. I went just about $20 over budget on the groceries this week, but that’s how it is sometimes. I’m having a ard time keeping up with the boys, and they must be growing through a growth spurt or something.
Feel free to share your Friday finals at the Weekly Savings Linky below.… Read more
With the end of the school year rapidly approaching so is the countdown for our kids school changes. Next year all three of our boys will be at new schools, and there will be no school uniforms. So, I’m putting the final touches on the kids’ school wardrobes, and thanks to online consignment shopping I’ve been able to get great name brands for pennies or even free.… Read more

Our boys are going to a growth spurt, at least that’s what the lack of contents in our fridge is telling me. Thankfully ALDI is my ally in keeping our family of six fed on a tight grocery budget. Even better yet, I don’t have to deal with coupons, which is absolutely freeing, since I already spend so much time dealing with coupons in the first place.… Read more
With a tween and a teen boy in the house, we are beginning to feel the growing pains. Between refereeing, filling the fridge and keeping them clothes I have to get creative when shopping, and as they grow I have to find new ways of saving. Size 13 men’s shoes, hair gel, and more, plus they won’t be wearing school uniforms next year – oh boy it’s going to be expensive.… Read more
We sure love shopping at JCPenney, and this week there are some great clearance deals in the kids department. We spotted beautiful Easter type dresses for girls on clearance at $4.99 with an original price of $50 – $60. We decided against getting them, because Bellamy Blue already have so many dresses that we got for free through online consignment. We did have a baby gift to buy, so we used our most recent $10 off $10 JCPenney coupon toward the gift, and we got a beautiful baby summer dress for only $4.34 after coupons and sale.… Read more
Since Publix limits the amount of items you can buy at a time, I decided to make a second trip to Publix during this ad cycle. We needed more Scotties facial tissue, because we go through a lot between colds and allergies. I also wanted to pick up cheap Buitoni pasta – guess what we’re having for dinner, and I picked up a great deal on dips.… Read more
This was a successful shopping week by the simple fact that I found $29.97 Nike shoes for our oldest son. I’m sure that anyone with teens in the house can relate, and teen and men shoes sure can be expensive. As for the grocery budget, we stayed close to $70 for our family of six. We treated the kids frugally with free ice cream at Carvel yesterday and today we got two free Redbox rentals.… Read more
