Ughh ..My walmart is driving me mad!

There's nothing worse than having a plan all laid out for scoring some deals with coupons only to have it go awry. My Super Walmart is remodeling and you can't find a blasted thing in there. I searched high and low for the trial sized Crest White Strips which would have netted me some pretty sweet deals with the overage but alas they had everything crammed together and nothing restocked ...uggh. The plus side is it's going to awesome when they get it finished and I can get back to shopping normally .... until then here's what I happened to get.

9 Gillette Fusion Razor Box set ringing up at $5 - $4/1 gilette fusion razor coupon made them $1 a piece.

10 Gillette Body/Shampoo Wash $2 a piece - $2 Gillette shampoo coupon = Free

6 Huggies Clean Team Buddies .97 each - $3/3 Clean Team coupons = Free

7 Febreze Noticables $5.97 each - $5/1 Febreze Noticible coupons = .97 each

6 Jello Singles .50 - .50 coupon = Free

Total : 115.61

Coupon Amount : $ 100.00

Out Of Pocket Paid : $16.55 (including tax)

Pumpkins, apples and sweets oh my !

It's my favorite time of the year and I was just enjoying the view of the mountains from my porch and I thought I would share it with you. I just love fall ... the crisp air, the beautiful array of colored leaves but nothing says fall to me more than pumpkins, apples and sweet potatoes. With fall comes wonderful seasonal treats that I look forward each year. There's nothing more comforting than being curled up in a blanket on a crisp autumn day while baking a pumpkin bread or sweet potato pie that fills your home with the most wonderful scent. So to kick off the fall season ... I am sharing my most favorite recipe for Southern Sweet Potato Pie (Recipe below) with you. May it fill your heart and home with much comfort and love as it does mine ....

Take Care,

4 ounces butter, softened

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 prepared pie shells, unbaked

Mix butter, potatoes, sugar and evaporated milk until well blended. Add vanilla, eggs, and cinnamon; mix well. Pour into the prepared pie shells. Bake in a 350° oven for about 1 hour, until set. Makes 2 pies.

Since Harris Teeter is having a promotion with Unilever that when you buy $15 worth of products you'll get $5 coupon toward your next order I couldn't miss out on this deal .....

Total : $42.93
Savings with coupons/sales : $41.30
Paid out of pocket: $1.63 and received 2 coupons for $5 off my next order !!!

Lowes Foods Triples

Finally, here is what I scored from Lowes Foods Triples. (Sorry about the pictures I'm still trying to figure out how to work the new I totally love getting amazing deals and I put a lot of effort in finding the best ones and this is my first triple experience at Lowes Foods and I have to say I am totally spoiled by Harris Tetter. My Lowes Foods ran out of 90 % of the stuff the first day and NEVER restocked plus 2 of the managers were ... well let's just say they weren't very friendly. So I'm glad that is over and done with and I can't wait until HT's next triples.

Total : $259.02
Savings with coupons and sales : $236.83
Paid out of pocket : $22.19
