I had some girls from my ABF over to my house on Saturday for a little "coupon class". I tried to show them all I know about couponing, I think we had a pretty sucessful morning!! I'm not a pro like this girl, this girl, this girl, or this girl but I still think I can catch a few deals here and there!!

Here are the deals I snagged this weekend and how I got them. Nothing great, but I definitely saved some money. I did my regular grocery shopping at Kroger this week, but stopped by CVS and Albertson's for some sales.


I won't go into all the detail of this shopping trip because it wasn't that great. I took advantage of the meal deal for the week and the buy 10 specific items get 15 free music downloads. As you can see I didn't get very much, but I got everything I needed to the dinner and lunches for this week. The rest of the things needed for my meals this week were things I already had at home!!
