Target and Wal-Mart Couponing Trip.

I went to Wal-Mart and Target today after I went to the dentist. I got more then what is pictured, but this is the main stuff. Other then this I got a ton of bread items. We have a great bread outlet store here, and I had a coupon! I paid $0.40 for 4 packs of English Muffins, 3 loaves of bread, and some Pita Pockets! Score! I also picked up a few other items at Target. Here's what else I got!

                                         -I got all of this in the first picture FREE!!
-I got everything pictured here for $4.70 after coupons! That's cheaper then one of those bigger Pantene at regular price! Woo-Hoo!
-Everything here came to $6.24! The MIO came to $3.00 alone and the cheapest item here is the can of cat food at $0.02! YAY!
               -So if you think of all of these products at regular price, I got a GREAT deal! : )

Couponing: Wal-Mart and Walgreens.

I did some couponing at Wal-Mart last night, and Walgreens today. At Wal-Mart, I think I did a great job! At Walgreens, I became a little frustrated. I was expecting to get more, but they were already out of everything I needed. I did end up picking up a few items at both stores. Of course with coupons though! Who wants to actually pay full price for everything! Not me, I'm on a very tight budget! I also am not a "HUGE" Extreme Couponer. I take and buy what I know my family will use, or give some items away. With that said, here's what I got.

-Wal-Mart: The total came to about $40.00 and some change before coupons. After my coupons, I paid $3.00 and some change! I think this was a GREAT trip for me. 

-Walgreens: Now these are regularly $6.99 a piece. They were on sale for $2.99 a piece. After coupons I paid $8.00! Now some people get laundry detergent for way cheaper then what I did, but where I live when they come to $1.99 a bottle, I'm getting them! I wish I could have got more, but I didn't have enough coupons . The way I think about it though is that I got $27.96 (with out tax) worth of detergent for $8 bucks! I think that's good!
So if you put these 2 trips together, pretending the Arm & Hammer wasn't on sale. I got about $70.00 worth of product for only $11 bucks! Score! This was honestly a really great trip for me if you look at it like that!

                              What did you save on? Let me know here or on my Facebook page! : )

Smokey Eyes With Color.

I'm making this post because when I posted this look of just the eyes, many people liked it. I wanted to let you know what shadow quad I used since it is drugstore and easy to get. All the shadows for this look were from the Maybelline Eyestudio Quad in 20 "Sapphire Siren".  I used all four colors for this look.  Since this look was from the other day, I forgot what other products I used...

The above photo is edited. I did this for fun and to change my eye color. 
I was not planning to make a post about this look, so this is the only full face photo I have.
I did end up liking how it displayed the make up though : )

                  While this is a drugstore product, I personally think these shadows are great!

Couponing Freebies!

Today I haven't felt too well at all. Everyone in my home is coming down with something. I'm not too bad yet, and had to gain some strength to go grocery shopping. I'm not going to show you everything I got, but I spent about $170.00 total. I did get a ton of things without coupons like meat and veggies. I also picked up items for my diet and non-diet items for everyone else. I'm just going to show you what I got completely free with my coupons. Most of these coupons were from online promotions and such. If you are not filling out for free samples and coupons, please start! It has helped me out so much with getting items for my family.

                                                   (The Pineapple was not free! )

 I think all together these products are about $35.00! That's great! $35 bucks that didn't come out of my pocket! : )
I am in no way a HUGE extreme couponer. I just get what I can and provide my family with the products we need and use. I do have a stockpile, but it is very small.

This wasn't free, but they are on sale this week at Walgreens (in-ad coupons).  I drink these regularly so I picked a few up! : )
                                                 Arizona Tea 2/$1.00. 
                                               Vitamin Water 3/$3.00.

Julep Maven Box! Only 1 cent!

I just ordered a Julep Maven Box! I'm so excited! If you have never ordered one before you can get your 1st one for only $1.00! What a great deal since it is normally $19.99 and I believe has $40.00 worth of product! Go right now and use the promo code SHAREONFEB to get this great deal! You can only always continue to get the boxes or you can cancel after getting your first one so you won't be charged or have to pay anything again! I used a prepaid gift card with $1.00 left and it worked! This is a good way to use up those last few cents!

                          CODES I HAVE SEEN IN CASE ONE DOESN'T WORK-
                       SHAREONFEB-Get It for $1.00 ( I used this one and it did work)(EXPIRED)
                  COLOR2012 -I think this lets you get it for a penny! If it works, Woo-Hoo!
                                     MAVEN5-Get it for $5! Still a great deal!

Once you create an account click on Julep Maven and then the link to become one. It will pick the best kit for you. I didn't like mine so you can always change it to the one you want. Also, this is a great way to use up a pre-paid card. I had one with $1.00 and some change left on it! It worked fine!

                                       Click Here to Score this for only a buck!

Disclaimer-I'm not sure, but if you order this through my link. I think it will give me credit towards a free box! I only get this if you keep your account for 30 days. Most of you will most likely cancel and this is fine! You may also skip months I believe until you want another box.

Downsizing our Bootys and Increasing our Beauty.

It's a new year and a new us! A few bloggers/vloggers and I teamed up to do a get fit challenge. This will be a team effort and our goals will be personalized by each one of us. We will create new goals for ourselves every month. As an incentive if each of us reaches our personal get fit goals we will send each other some beauty items as a reward! This is a team effort though so each one of us has to meet our goal in order to get a reward.

I myself have gained a lot of weight over the past few years. I used to be pretty fit and active. I have really let myself go and would like to get a lot out of doing this. I'm not going to think of this as a diet. I will be thinking of it as a healthy lifestyle change. I want anything I accomplish to last, not just something for the moment.

                                       My Goals for month 1-Febuary
                                                    -Lose 3 lbs
                                          -Eat normal sized portions
                               -Re-place most snacks with healthy snacks
                                         -work out 3-4 times a week

 I will be my own inspiration! Here is a picture of me now and pictures of my old self! 

I own plenty of workout DVDS and have many options to choose from. These are the ones I will be working with this month
