~Garage Sale Saturday!~

I'm in full swing garage sale mode today. Not really sure why I thought attempting a garage sale during possibly the busiest week of my life was a good idea. I'm just tired of dodging the stuff in the garage with my car. It is a little dangerous!

Feel free to drop by Saturday from 8-12. I like fast, 1 day garage sales. No need to drag it out! I've recruited a few neighbors to also have garage sales at the same time. Hopefully, there will be multiple sales going on tomorrow!

A few items for sale include:

1997 Isuzu Rodeo
Graco infant car seat & base (excellent condition)
Eddie Bauer infant car seat
crib mattress
Graco pack n play
Bailey double electric breast pump
Clothing (men, women, children & maternity)
Full size bedding sets
White wood changing table
Ceramic pillars
home decor items
Toiletry items: Pads, liners, razors, toothpaste, etc.

Possibly the most exciting part of the garage sale will be Mini-me's 1st lemonade stand! She is super excited!

If you need directions or information on any of the items listed, please email me( or leave a comment!

Happy Friday!

~2 Coupon Inserts Scheduled~

~My CVS trip this week~

Ran into CVS this week to use up some ECB's that were going to expire soon. This is what I purchased:



Sub-total= $11.78
-$1.50 (coupon used to purchase both items)
-$3 (off $10 health care CVS coupon that printed)
-$3 ECB

I'm posting this to show that not everything I get at the drugstore is free. However, this was a better deal than buying it elsewhere once the coupons and store offers are combined.

Happy Thursday!

~All Natural Foods on Sale at Kroger!~

Good Monday Morning Sassy Savers!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! We had fun with our guests in town. They came down for mini-me's dance recital. It was darling. I was so proud of her!

Ran into to Kroger to pick up a few more mega-event sale items. If you only feed your family "all natural" items, this is the time to buy chips & cereal. This is what I got:

Mom's Best cereal

Boulder chips
-$1/2 q (printed last week)
=.50 each

Anytime I can get "all natural" items for the same price as my normal brands, I buy them.

Happy Monday!

~Menu Wednesday!~

We are back in business and I'm able to cook again. Yeah!

This is what the menu is looking like for the week:

Spaghetti, spinach salad, bread
Tacos w/ pinto beans
BBQ Chicken sandwiches
Grilled Hamburgers
Lasagna, salad & rolls

This is a very busy week for us and we have company coming to stay. After they leave, we have more guests coming to stay. It is good to have a menu plan so that I don't have to think about it. I just get up and follow the schedule. Works for me! Plus, my hubs loves to know what we are eating BEFORE he gets home. He must like to think about it during the day :)

Happy Wednesday!

~Mother's Day Weekend FREEBIES!~

Good Monday Morning Sassy Savers!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day and were celebrated. Did any of you take advantage of the Mother's Day FREEBIES that were being offered at restaurants? We ate out for lunch and dinner. Lunch was Grandy's where I ate for FREE, so our total was $6.47 for our family to eat lunch. Dinner we ate at local Mexican restaurant where I ate for FREE, PLUS my hubs had a gift certificate, so our entire family ate for FREE. That was nice ;)

I'm having some major issues with Blogger right now. Check back in a few for my Kroger trip!

Happy Monday!

~Menu Wednesday!~

Menu Wednesday...well, I wish I could say that I had a menu and was able to "cook". However, we had a very scary event at our home on Friday. The oven caught on fire! Literally, a few years were taken off my life that day. It was a very scary event! Luckily, the Lord kept us all safe and secure. We serve such an AWESOME God!
The company is coming out to assess the damage today. We're praying that they just replace the unit. That would bring me great peace.

Due to not being able to use the oven or stove top (due to fire) or the grill (due to the rain), we have been using the microwave for burritos and such. Here is what I've pieced together with my few resources:

Crockpot chili
Crockpot chicken w/ broccoli steamers
Bean & cheese Burritos
Spinach salad topped w/ chicken (leftover) & kidney beans

Hope you are having a very blessed week!

~Discounted Fuel~

Kroger Fuel
I'm sure most of you have seen all of the signs about Kroger & Shell joining forces to offer discounted gas with Kroger fuel credits. It is actually a good deal! You have to get 100 fuel credits at Kroger (see bottom of your receipt) and then you will get .10 off per gallon on 1 fill up. You can earn these throughout the month. Shell gasoline is normally a few cents more than Wal-mart, but after the .10 discount you are still getting it a few cents cheaper per gallon.

Tom Thumb Fuel
Tom Thumb offers a little different deal on their discounted fuel. It is actually a better deal, BUT you must spend $50 in 1 transaction to get .20 per gallon on 1 fill up. If I'm planning on buying meat or something else that is on sale in bulk, I carefully shop their circular and plan a trip out so that I can spend $50 in order to get the fuel credit.

In order to get the most savings, you would want to fill up an empty tank as both deals are only good 1 time until you earn more credits. It is now taking $80 to fill up my car, so every bit helps. They are projecting gas prices to be at $5 by Memorial Day. Wish I had a hybrid about now ;)
