 I need to tell my good friend Olenka what a kick ass job she did at the grocery store with her coupons. Totally amazing. She ended up leaving the store and only spent like 40 cents. She rocks. You should get some kind of award baby girl. Keep up the good work : Here is her story below (yes I C&P it but I knew she wouldn't mind LOL . YOu can also check out her great site at

In all my short time of couponing.. I have never spent so little at the grocery store. I wish I would have taken a picture of my groceries tonight because it does not look like $84 worth of stuff.

My experience was not pleasant at all, especially when I paid my *change*. But it was not a scheduled trip. I just got out from the schools open house and decided to pick up some lunch meat for tomorrow. I decided to pick up a couple money makers and then got my groceries. I handed my coupons to the cashier and received a huff from her. I already had a feeling pulling into her station that this was not going to go over nicely.. But I still continued and just hoped the experience would be as pleasant as the previous trips. Off the bat she spouted you cant use this coupon.. ooh no this one goes over the amount of the priced item so you cant use that... I simply said Paul your store manager allowed me to use that coupon just the other day and I called here to make sure I could use the competitor coupon.. I will be honest I did get an attitude because It just annoyed me at how unhappy this cashier was to have to deal with coupons.. I told her to call over the manager... the store manager was not there so I got someone else.. LONG Story short.. Attitudes galore!!! I never get an attitude so I really need to make sure I do not if this happens next time and just leave the store with my coupons and go to another one.

Now according to my calculations, I should have paid close to $10 so I have no idea how the amount went so low. But I do need to remember to count the exact amount of coupons and make sure that I buy the same amount of groceries and possibly a couple over from this point on. Just to keep the register and an unhappy cashier go crazy because she cant ring me up quickly. OOH and there were a couple of people in the back of me who huffed even louder and left the lane. The other day that same thing happened and I apologized to the store manager and he responded with no need for an apology I turned my light off for a reason 80).

Ice cream Truck

 I'm sure most of you have an ice cream truck that comes through your neighbor hood. I swear ours is a stalker LOL. Not in a bad way though. She makes me insane, more so than usual. Every night she comes creeping down the road with her music extra super loud. If I hear her before the kids do then I try to turn the tv up really loud or get them in another part of the house. This usually doesn't work and they go running out the door. What also makes it bad is she ALWAYS will just stop right in front of the house. I'm like are you kidding me? I have 4 kids and this crap can get expensive since she comes every day of the week. Her loud music playing and she's on the microphone saying HELLO, HELLO.

This goes on from May-September. She's stressing me LOL. I at one point told her I didn't like her very much. So did my next door neighbor because her little one has to have ice cream every night as well. If I hear her coming, I also try to throw the kids in my truck really fast and go somewhere. They don't need treats every night but if I don't get them one the 3 & 4 yr old have super meltdowns. It doesn't matter if I have stuff in the freezer it's just not the same.

Last night my son came running down the stairs yelling, "there she is, there she is." Well, I looked out the window and she was already past the house so I sat back down. Next thing I know he's saying, "she's coming back, shes backing up." I was like no way, she is NOT backing down the road!! Yep, there she was in front of my house. I was like, SERIOUSLY!!! I can not believe this. So the kids are running out the door and I'm like ,"WAIT!!" I'm digging in my purse for money and of course all I have is a 20. Nice, sending kids to get icecream with 20. Unlimited possibiliteis there.  Just 3 kids were at home so I thought ok, the 9 yr old is pretty responsible, she won't get tons of stuff. HA!!! That was funny.

Can't wait to see what today brings or when the truck will be down the road. She comes anywhere between 5-9. Yes 9. If it's dark, she'll spotlight the house. Anyone else have an ice cream lady like this LOL???

I won, I won LOL

Ok, now when it comes to winning stuff off of the Internet, I am EXTREMELY lucky. It just blows my mind away at how much stuff I've won since the beginning of the year. I seriously need to play the lottery or hit the casinos.That's how often I win stuff. This time my win was an Everepure Water Analysis Kit (valued at $90). So weird because like 2 nights ago I told my husband that I hoped I won it LOL. This kit comes with everything you need to test your water and the steps are easy. You then send the results in and I think I read that you get them back in less than 2 weeks. Thank you for hosting this giveaway and so many great others. You rock!!
