|Be thankful for ME!|
I had a great couponing trip to Publix today. I am stocked up on pasta, pasta sauce, Chex, v8 fusion, and cake mix.
For the pasta/sauce combo I had a coupon for a free pasta when you buy 2 Ragu sauces. Both the sauce and the pasta were BOGO at Publix, so for the price of 1 jar of sauce I got 2 jars AND 2 boxes of pasta. I usually make my own sauce since it has less sugar that way, but in a pinch jarred sauce is great. And good through 2013.
The Chex was another mega score! I have a small chex addiction and I'm infatuated with homemade chex mix at Christmas. The Chex, which is usually $3.49 was BOGO. I had three $1 off 2 coupons and $2 off 5 from Target. For $20.50 of cereal I paid $4.50! Winner, winner!
I also made money on a great holiday party item- Rondele Cheese. They have a $2.50 coupon you can get on their website. They cost $4.59, they were BOGO, so I made 41 cents after 2 coupons!
And the bragging continues...I got 4 free boxes of Duncan Hines cake and brownie mix. Those were BOGO this week AND I had a coupon for a free box of Duncan Hines that I got from the FoodBuzz featured publisher program. They were all totally free! I need to find a recipe to make something using Duncan Hines and Comstock fruit. Ideas? I'm leaning towards something cherries and chocolate.
With all my couponing success I felt a little treat was in order. Santa's White Christmas? Don't mind if I do! Oh I LOVE the holidays!
I am thankful for coupons.
I am thankful for so much more though. I'm thankful for every aspect of my life. Sometimes it seems the mundane and the little struggles can get me down. A mess on the floor or a late night at work. But it's really the mundane to be thankful for. That's life. And I love mine.
I'm really thankful for this guy.
He's amazing and I don't know what I'd do without him. I'm thankful for the little fur ball too...even when said mess usually traces back to her.
Kyle made dinner tonight and it was delicious. It's an omelet, but first he sauteed diced red potatoes, onions, and mushrooms. They get real crispy and makes the omelet more like a hash. If you ever come over ask Kyle to make it. It's delish!
I'm thankful for the little things.....
What are you thankful for?
Love and pilgrims,
Carissa & Kyle
