An actual receipt of mine! (BEST YET)
 My newest addiction hobby!!! What better time for me to pick up on couponing than when I'm needing to save money for our wedding??? This stuff has CHANGED MY LIFE! I ain't lying! LOL!!

The hardest thing is just getting started! I've watched my coworkers do this for almost 4 years and still wasn't on my game like I should be. Then one day (SUNDAY) I just decided to get a paper. Just a mere $2 changed the game for me!! You are bound to find at least $2 worth of savings that apply to you! So it's worth it! then you combine that with going online.

Kroger and Publix have their own coupons that you can use WITH the manufacturer's coupons. That's called STACKING!! And they also double coupons that are $0.50 or less EVERDAY!! Check out their weekly ads so that you can go into the store PREPARED!

Only purchase what's on sale. I know that's hard but you can shop to the sales. Before you know it you will begin to have everything on hand that you need and then will only need the essentials (milk, bread, butter, etc.)

There are tons of sites dedicated to helping you find the best deals and even FREE items. They often put out what's free at Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, as well as the grocery stores! They will tell you when the coupon was printed in the paper and sometimes even give you the link to a printable coupon.

Southern Savers
Coupon Divas
The Krazy Coupon Lady
Coupon Katarina
Smart Couponing

Subscribe to their blogs and you can get the tips sent right to your email. I use google reader and I will just go there and all of my blog subscriptions are listed together. These sites are not just dedictated to groceries. You can find deals on electronics, clothing, toys...anything!!! They also do a weekly round up of retail stores with coupon codes or printable coupons.

My fiance became a believer when he came with me on a mini run! My total then was $0.41!
Most of the stuff in there was for him! LOL!

30 is 30...

THIRTY IS THIRTY!! PERIOD! It is not the new twenty! Shoot you can't even drink at 20. So why would it be the new 20??? LOL

Jay Z even has a song about it. Like to hear it?? Here it go...

30’s the new 20, I’m so hot still
Better broad, better automobile
Better yard now, bet a hundred mil’

I know everything you wan do
I did all that by the age of 21
by 22 i had that brand new AC coupe (Acura)

i guess you could say that my Legend just began

You young boys ain’t ready fa’real
30’s the new 20, I’m so hot still!

I'll break this down a little!! If 30 is the the new 20 and you ain't even get started til you were 22...why do you want to go back? I think it just sounds good. Even Jigga got caught up! Now he is 40. Is that the new 30?? Or does he still want to go back to 20?
I KNOW I don't want to go back to 20. I mean I was about 30 lbs smaller...and I don't even want to go back to THAT! Still in school. Making no money. Acting crazy. Naw...y'all can keep that! I'll roll with thirty! Some of the best years of my life have been spent with people over 30. So I welcome myself to club! WHOOP WHOOP!! :o)
So who wants to be the new thirty or the regular ole thirty thirty!!?!
Looking forward to 31

Bloggers Day of Silence

Even though I've been quite MIA over here I will be joining many bloggers in a day of silence tomorrow for the relief in Japan. I ask that you all lift those up that have been affected by this disaster.

Thanks guys!!
