I just have to tell you all that I am loving all these money saving sites. They have great coupon deals and tell you where to find the best bargins. Also, it seems like I win at least one giveaway a weel. My last win was some homemade soap (see my last blog). It is so much fun to get all these great ideas and then win some free stuff along the way!

I found another great giveaway. It is on "The Simple Things" http://www.wishnonstars.com and the giveaway if for some great homemade soap. The soap can be found on CCrafters http://www.etsy.com/shop/CCrafters. The soap sounds so yummy and looks divine. You all know how hard it is for me to brag up someone else's homemade soap because of my own homemade soap business but this is the real homemade stuff while I am only at the melt and pour stage. I will be trying this soap out and then will be learning how to make the "real" stuff myself. Be sure to check out this giveaway, it ends on the 25th of July!

I just have to brag about my big find today...I went over to Fresh Market in Centerville and they had a big display of 2 Ltr. Dr. Pepper with a sign that said $.69 each. Then they had $.55 coupons for 1 2 Ltr. bottle. I filled my cart with these, not because I drink Dr. Pepper but because my kids love it. I figured at $.14 a bottle it was a steal. When I got to the register they were ringing up at $1.25 each. I asked the cashier about the price and told him that the sign said they were $ .69 each. He told me that was after the $ .55 coupon. I'm a bit of a math nerd and told him that $ .55 off of $1.25 was not $ .69 and that the sign just said they were .69 each. He went over and checked the sign and sure enough, I was right. They had to give me the whole cart load for what ended up being $ .14 a bottle. So for less than $2.00 I got enough Dr. Pepper to keep my kids happy for a long time! Also, they had the Western Family 2lb blocks of cheese for $3.99 so that came out to $1.99 a pound! Got to love those little unadvertised bargins!

I am getting into couponing big time. Tomorrow I will mail in for $106.00 in rebates. My goal is to try to pay for Christmas 2010 by winning giveaways and using rebate money to pay for things. Everyone help me to keep me in line on this. It is a noble goal, hope I can make it!
Check out the Diaper Bag set giveaway on www.babasfarmlife.com/2010/07/diaper-bag-bundle-giveaway.html it is an awesome deal for any expecting parent or for a gift to someone you love that is having a baby. I hope I win the contest because I know that Tiffany could use this. She is moving into her new house this week and we hope it doesn't put her into preterm labor. We want this little guy to stay put until after September 10th!

We are getting ready to leave and head back home from our vacation to St. George with Zack and Jasmine. Jon and Marie went to Maui and we took the kids with us to St. George. We have had tons of fun, swimming, hiking, and relaxing. The kids have been great. We went to the Grand Canyon yesterday. It is now time to head home. :(
