With the rising cost of almost EVERYTHING it makes me feel like I am doing something to help my family. We all talk about wanting to be that "Proverbs 31" woman and I think more of us are closer to her than we imagine. I believe saving money is part of her character, part of how she would have looked out for her family in 2009.
My purchase today at Target
Total $101.42, I paid $47.54 - total savings $53.88, so I am getting there! Until I get to be that woman on the morning news, I am happy to save more than I spend.
Notice there are four large frozen dinners in there ($6.94 each) and two boxes of hair color (Revlon & Garnier) found them on clearance and had coupons. There are also two large bottles of Suave 2 in 1 shampoo for my kids. I did not buy anything today that I did not have a coupon for. I got four free apples too!
