How is it That Saving Money Can Make One Feel Better?

I love saving money. It is like breathing for me. My dear friend Jennifer met me and the boys in town today to give me a hand buying groceries and running errands. We went to the consignment store and picked up the last of my winter stuff and my check for the month. I also went by the post office and then off to Wal-Mart. While the cashier was quite unpleasant and thought I had lost my marbles when I told her I had "comp ads", she really gave me a look when I brought out my coupons. Nevertheless, she did her job and I got my savings while handling the situation "gracefully" as I was later told. So here's my savings.

2 pk. Pepperridge Farm 5 cheese garlic bread
20 ct. Great Valu trash bags
64 oz. OJ
2 Muffin Mixes
2 HB Helper
2- 64 oz. Gatorade

Great job saving Marva! I was kinda bummed with my last trip to Wal-Mart. I got home and when I read my receipt, I noticed the cashier only scanned half of my coupons.

Nicole, That is awful!! It is so hard to watch when the kids are with you too! At least for me.;)

I was happy with the savings! Thanks and many blessings!!
