I love a bargain

Once every few months a store in our area does triple coupons. I went yesterday to see if I could get some good deals. I could not believe that at 10 am they were already out of some stuff I had coupons for. Sometimes I wonder if they don't stock the items that have recently had coupons in the paper.
Anyway I was able to get a nice stash of things we use. Before discounts the total bill was $73.97
minus $7.99 for the store card discount, minus $48.50 for the coupons and I paid $17.48. Not a bad way to start the new year.
A very rare thing happened yesterday, I went out by myself for a couple hours. I left Kris and Zack at home while I went walking around a few stores. I was able to get next years Christmas wrapping paper at $.74 per roll for 100 sq feet. I also found a great bargain on the silicone baking sheet I have been wanting. So I snagged one of those.
I don't ever make resolutions but I do think this year I am going to try to be even more frugal that I have been in the past.

Ditto. I have GOT to start paying attention to those sales flyers....

I have been on a super frugal kick the past few months. Saved 53 bucks at Winn Dixie today. No stores around here have triple coupon days. I'm jealous!
