We are having Memorial Day lunch with my in-laws, closing on a house, and have a wedding that my hubby and son are both in this week! In my "down time" I might coupon, but it is highly doubtful and I will probably be more focused on paint colors, new carpet, bathroom remodel ect...and maybe start packing;) SO...needless to say,this blog is not my priority this week.

Remember to pick up your free Colgate, Weber seasonings(if you got that q), Smartwater, Vitamin Water, pork(if you found a $3 off pork tearpad), Quaker Quakes, ect. at Dillons this is good until Tues. It's probably good if I take a coupon sebatacle anyways, I need rest for the most likely June Mega Sales at Dillon's!

Have a great week and check out HIPTOSAVE.com! She is great about posting deals.

Have you done your coupon-ing this week?

IF NOT, GET TO IT!!! Alicia on at Gateway to Savings mentioned in one of her posts that she believed that summer months(May-Aug.) are the best for coupon-ers...and I would have to agree with her! The majority of "good" grocery coupons for food, convienece ones at that(the kind busy moms love!) are at rock bottom prices for summer holidays. If you pair this with rebates AND coupons...lets just say, that's a lot of free groceries. Target keeps being out of a lot of things, and we've been insanely busy(and will continue to be) this week...so my free Nabisco cookies, Ritz bitz, Kraft dressing, Dove travel deoderant, sunscreen ect. will have to wait*sigh*

BUT, I did manage to mess up a transaction at CVS(and could have gotten twice as many bucks back+a $3 item...which could have been Izzy's biter biscuits,grr) oh well, it happens.
Anyways, here is how my $44.48 did this week!

1 bayer Contour Meter $88(OUCH!)-raincheck(whew!)=$14.99-$30/1 SS=FREE+5 bucks back(I could have gotten two with the one coupon,limit 2, and had 10 ECB back....ahh!)
