My new world record of savings. . . and a card to celebrate!

I warned you. . .. I told you I was going to ramble about my grocery store savings. And here I am to do just that. This week I wasn't going to Publix to do a MAJOR shopping trip, and we didn't need much produce or dinner food - so I was mostly stocking up on lunch, snack, and breakfast food. But here are some of my BIG-deal DEALS:

-Oscar Mayer lunchmeat . . . .FREE! (thanks to two coupons and a sale!)

-Beechnut Baby food - I think it came out to about 10 cents a jar (two coupons, and BOGO)

-McCormick Steakhouse Grinder - 50 cents

-Betty Crocker cake mixes and frosting . . .. about 86 cents each

All in all, I spent a whopping $9.53, and I saved $41.91 (And I even got a few things that weren't on sale, and treated myself to a soda!)

I also had AMAZING deals at CVS this week. Everything I bought ended up being better than FREE!!! I spent about $9 out of pocket, but I walked out with $12 in Extra Care Bucks (which I then used at Publix on this shopping trip!)

I also have a card to share with you today - the special release sets are up now, at The {Stamps} of Life!!!! This 4th of July set is SO fun. I have been totally into making fun summer cards with it! It has lots of terrific stars in it, so really you can use it for MUCH more than 4th of July!

Not sure where that piece of ribbon is from (Maya Road maybe?) but it was the perfect little scrap for this card!!! And I had one more blue Doodlebug button sitting on my desk, so I threw that on there too. Oh how I love "clean-and-simple-throw-together" cards.
Have a terrific day!!!
