We have a WINNER!!

The winner of the book giveaway is

Mrs R over at Blogging away
!! You should go say "hi" She's a military wife and she plays the guitar!

I used to pick the winner.. (such a cool site!) I wish I knew how to do the cute little cut and paste thing but I can not figure it out!

Congratulations!! Email me at and I will get your FABULOUS book out right away!

I will let you know tomorrow what the next book is!! I need to get to reading!!

In other FABULOUS news. Actually in HUGE news I was at Kmart last night and I walked passed this lady with a HUGE binder of coupons. She looked approachable so I said "hi" (thats the Canadian in me) and she was SUPER nice. I totally did not get her name though however she did show me HOW TO SHOP FOR FREE!!!!

With coupons. See I can clip coupons with the best of them but I rarely use them. She had this binder set up super user friendly and she gave me a BUNCH of tips.

I think we created a MONSTER I have been up all night printing coupons for FREE STUFF, well not free really (yet) but Kmart has a double coupon week and she showed me how (I was buying shaving cream for the hubs) to do it.

Shaving cream $1.99 (on sale)
Coupon $1 off x2 (double coupon)
= FREE!!!

I am so excited to shop for free.... I am heading back to Kmart with all my coupons and I will let you know when I return how I did! I am sure I will not be able to master it like she did, her and her husband bought $193 worth of stuff for $1.89. WOW!! I am so going to learn how to do this. She says its been YEARS since she has paid full price for anything she uses on a regular basis including house cleaning supplies!

HOLY CRAPOLA!!! I have never won anything in my life. I always say that I couldn't win at bingo if I was the only one playing. I will email you my address. I'm so excited.

I wish I could learn how to do the coupon thing. My sister is working on doing and I've tried. It just seems I always find coupons for stuff we don't use and then I end up buying stuff we don't need because, "I have a coupon!" I just don't get it.

I wish you well on your coupon trip! I hope you can figure it out and make it work for ya!

Let me know how it works out. My sister has been doing it for years. She's even gotten free movie passes and meals from restaurants before!

I have been big time couponing for a year and a half! Like the lady you met I rarely pay full price for anything. I have cut our grocery bill in half. Do you have a CVS or Walgreens? I do some of my best work there! They don't double coupons but if you use their system of register rewards combined with coupons you can end up making money to shop!!

I'm guilty of doing that. I'll clip coupons and then forget to take them and use them! I need to be better about this!
