Savings Saturday

Alright, I have need to get back to normal with my coupon shopping trips!  I can deffinately tell that I have been slacking in that department since the hubby left. (Insert poor me rant here)  I'll tell you why.....because I HATE going to the stores with three kids!  Really!  It stinks!!  When you are using coupons you have to pay very close attention to prices and making sure that you are acctually putting your coupons in the correct piles as to not miss any of them at checkout.  You don't know how annoyed I get when I realize AFTER checking out that I put a coupons of a item that I did buy, in the pile that I thought I didn't buy.  Yes, it's normally one 50 cents or so....but sometimes its more than that.  And even at 50 cents....it ads up over time.  BOO!  (End rant here)

I decided it was time to get over myself and bribe the kids so I could shop!  lol  I took them to the movie department and had them pick out a $5 movie and told them that if they were good for me, then I would let them keep taht movie.  If they weren't good for me, then they lost the movie.  Yes, I am out $5 extra....but honestly, I would have bought them something anyway.  So it's a win, win.  ;)
