CentsAble Shopper Show & Tell

Welcome to Centsable Shopper Show and Tell!!

This weekend my sister-in-law is getting married so we have a crazy weekend planned. I didn't do much shopping today because we got tons of left over food from the rehearsal dinner and we will be out most of the weekend. Grandma also gave us a ton of fruits and vegs so I will wait and do a big shopping trip on Mon or Tues but here is what we got this week.

CVS (I had a $19 ECB to use up and needed diapers)

2 jumbo playschool diapers $6.99 each
1 gallons of skim milk $3.39
1/2 gallon of whole milk(this is all they had)$1.99

coupons used
-$2.00 cvs playschool diaper coupon
-$3.00 off $15 CVS coupon

got back $5.00 in ECB on diaper


Iams weight control dog food -$5.00 coupon
4 cans of tuna
1 box whole wheat noodles
2 gallons of milk

Total for this week is $40 ($25 of this was the dog food) Since my grocery Challenge was $60 I will save the extra $20 for later when I need it!!

Show and Tell gives everyone the chance to share how they did this last week. Let us know if you made your Grocery Challenge for the week and how you did it. It your time to brag--go on you have earned it!

Frugal Friday: My 2 year old's handmade greeting cards!

My son is in a Mother's Day Out program at a local church 2-days a week. They are a wonderful organization who litters my home with an innumerable quantity of artwork every week!

Since my son is only 2-1/2, the artwork ranges from the "obviously NOT done by a two-year old" kind to the cute "aww, look at his littel hands and feet" kind to the "obviously done by a 2 year old" kind!

There are SO many that I can usually only display a handful for a few days and they have to go "away" (the keepsake box or the trash). I recently read a post (I can't for the life of me remember where so I will credit everyone generally and no one specifically) about using your child's artwork as greeting cards.

This is the most fabulous idea I have come across! I immediately went and grabbed two that I had no sentimental attachment to and sent them to aunts who had mailed Valentines gifts to the kids this year. Ah-ha! FREE and much more meaningful to the recipient than a store bought card they know I picked out anyway!

I'm looking at this artwork in new ways now. I sort them when they come home into "greeting cards" and "keepers" with some ideas about who needs a little pick-me-up, thank you or has a birthday coming up!

Try it!
