Worth The Time

Guess what?? I won the diaper giveaway! I just found out last night and was so excited I could hardly sleep. :) I won 3 packages of Huggies diapers and 2 packages of wipes. I am having so much fun with this coupon thing and entering giveaways for free things.

I have been on my cash-only budget for one month now and it's been awesome. I have stayed within my budget and managed to stock our basement shelves with whatever has been on sale. We have also eaten out less! That was something I never expected. I do feel like I cheated a little bit because last month my budget was more and I got part of that back in rebates this month. But I guess the end result is the same, no matter what my actual spending amounts are. I'm spending a lot less than I used to (about 50% less now) and getting lots in return. Good times.

you're going to be one of those women featured in people magazine who earn $300 a year grocery shopping with all the coupons/rebates/give aways. i can't wait to hear about how you get your budget down to $0.00!! :) good going!

good for you! it is a game and i love to play it too. i want to work on the "stocking up" part more. i get our weekly things at great prices, but haven't gotten my mind over to buying a lot ahead yet.
