Raise A Paw....

Today I found a cute fabric for my daughter who loves animals! I was at Walmart and there was some clearance on fabric. Now, I do not sew very often, still learning, but I can do some basic items. When I saw the fabric I thought of simple curtain for her window and maybe a couple small blankets for her stuffed animals. When my daughter arrived home from school I showed her the fabric and she loved it! Course she asked me to make pj's for her animals too and I told her I wasn't sure.
Here it is:

Cereal for $0.99 A Box! Sweet!

Couponing does not have to be done on a large scale, it is not about being "extreme". There has been many times I have gone in with a few coupons at a time. When you do that you become less overwhelmed and can focus more on the task at hand. The other day I went in with a mission to get four boxes of cereal, ten pasta sides and one reusable bag from my local Price Chopper. Keep in mind that sale prices and coupons vary from store to store and location to location in the USA. I was able to view the store's weekly flyer as well online and create my shopping list from it.
Kellogg's cereal was on sale for 2 for $5.00
Knorr Pasta Sides was on sale for 10 for $10.00
One type of their reusable bags was $0.99 
I noticed online on their site they had downloadable store coupons I can put on my store loyalty card for the Knorr Pasta Sides to save $3.00 on buying ten. There was also a coupon for saving $0.75 on a reusable bag. Make sure to check local stores in your area to see if they offer downloadable coupons. From here I noticed that there was an "iSave" coupon as well that would print in the store to make the cereal $1.99 a piece if you bought four. This was a "store" coupon and Price Chopper coupon policy allows you to combine it with a manufacturer's coupon. Price Chopper also doubles coupons up to $0.99 which means a coupon for $0.99 would be doubled to $1.98. This is where understanding your store's coupon policy is important.
