Coupons! Coupons! O My!! Look at all this merchandise I have gotton from coupons!!!

I have only been blogging for less than 2 weeks, and I have found great coupons, and I have snipped and clipped at various coupon sites, and found sites that list the various items on sale for the week, and I really can say I have saved a ton of money. Herbal Essence shampoo for a 1.00 a bottle, pro health toothpaste for around a 1.00, kotex item for a 1.50 a box, regular 4.00. Pantene shampoo, razors, Fructis hairspray and shampoo, men and women deoderants, lotions, so much just look at my inventory that I will keep adding too.  I  find items on sale, and use manufactors coupons with in-store coupons, lots of times they double and I use other coupon ideas, I may have 2 different coupons for the same item just a different amount off and I'll use both, they go through:0. I have really starting to figure out the whole getting an item for little money. Blogging has become a quest for finding the best coupons, best money saving ideas. I am learning so much, and really having fun saving all kids of money!!!!

Check out what I got for free just by Blogging!!!

I have been blogging for a very short time, and really enjoy it. I am not in it at all for the money!!! I will not make any money at all from my blog!!! I am only blogging to meet new people and make new friends, and see and hear the bloggers out there's ideas, and see and promote their blog or something they make. I will probebly buy more of fellow bloggers items. Starting with a tray I seen being given away, heck I am just gonna buy it. Anyhow, I went to one of the many coupon blogs and found one for bath and body works, it was buy any item get a travel size 5.00 item for free. So with coupon in hand, we yes we, went and I printed out nine coupons why I stopped at nine who knows, there was no limit on printing of coupon, and bought 9 .50 cent antibacterial carries as visiable in picture, they did not say a word about using the nine coupons, we all went in family that is and got first round, and went back later got second round, so we ended up with 45.00 worth of travel size items for under 5.00 The cost of the 9 antibacterail carriers, and tax. All under 5.00. I love the idea of blogging, I am learning so much, and am having so much fun finding ideas, and of course saving money!!!!

Making my own inexpensive Valentine bouquet!

I was shopping about  at Wal Mart of course...I always come across the mark down flowers, the roses sometimes don't look the best at all, but the carnations always still have life left to them. I bought some pretty baby carnations and they were only $2.50. I cut them to fit in a vase I got at a yard sale(.50) last spring( my favorite vase) which I love, and added some ribbon from Dollar General that I got after Christmas for 75%off (.25 cents), and wrapped it around the vase, it amazes me how much the Christmas ribbon can be used for any occasion, and added two puffy glitter stickers, It adorned my table for several days untill the ones my hubby got me yesterday for Valentines Day finally took there place...I am sure the ones that my hubby got did not cost under 3.00 to make or put together...:)

My son and his cake, Yes I said my son!!

My son Austin had a biology project do. He made a 3-D  cake for his project. It turned out really cute, and I took a liking in seeing him enjoy something I never thought he would enjoy at almost 15 and hates to even make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.:0 He gave it a try and I must say the cake turned out really very cute. He had to find flowers to cut out and paste on his board with the cake and all he could find was pink, girly looking flowers no plants, he wasn't to happy about putting flowers on his display, but knew he had too, and given there were no other pictures to choose from he went with them:) I say he enjoyed making the cake, of course he says o mom it was ok. Take a look at his cake pictures, and thanks for taking the time to read what this bragging mom has to say about his cake.

Learning the ends and outs

I am so happy to be a new blogger to the blogger world. Let me introduce myself, My name is Michelle I am a Christain stay at home mom to 2 teenagers. I am happy to be able to share my love for thrifty finds, bargains, and home ideas, cooking, decorating, and all things fun to share with all my visitors, and hearing all of your ideas. I am what you would call a bargain queen, well I admit I watch what I spend, and people know me as a bargain gal. I am not ashamed of owning used items.  I get told often I can't believe you got that there, or you only paid that much. I love yard sales, and thrift stores. As I am now learning the ends and outs of blogging, to share all my ideas with you. I know I will love the thrill of finally having my very own blog, and meeting fellow bloggers, and sharing ideas with you, and making lasting memories, in the Blogging World!!:)
