recycled gift bag

Here is a cool youtube video of how to make your own gift bag out of newspaper. How cool would it be if you got a paper in a different language. I would love to see a bag made our of Arabic, Korean or something like that. It would be even cooler if you could find aged newspaper.

Grocery shopping

In attempts to get back on the savings wagon, I have switched my grocery store to shop rite instead of Giant. Besides the larger selection, prices are so much better. I used to have a goal which was achieved prior to pregnancy of $50 a week. When cravings hit, my budget was never kept and here we are today. Also, sending your husband to the grocery store when you need something always equals OVERSPENDING. I am going to try to stay within my budget. Now just as a fyi, I don't usually go looking for coupons, nor do I have a printer. I would like to see how a family of 3 can stay at around $50 a week. Eventually I will implement the couponing but for now lets see how well we do..

Here is what I spent on 2/12 for groceries. I don't have all the extra recipts for my husbands trips but at least it is a starting point for me.

Shopping total: $46.41
On sale savings: $11.00
Manufactor Coupon: $ 0.78
Store Coupon: $ 0.47
Total Savings $12.25

Just to let you know the coupons where actually receieved when I swiped my shoprite savings card. I didn't have any coupons on hand. I really like shop rite because every ad has coupons, so that will help in the future. The only left is my reusable bag savings, this shopping trip I received $0.15.

Baby Ralph Lauren Deal

I was shopping at Macy's, my favorite place for baby clothes and I cam across a Boys Ralph Lauren Polo winter jacket on the clearance rack. I went up to the Register to see how much it was on clearance for $11.98. After coupon the final total was $10.16
I don't know if its me, but I didn't realize that a ralph Lauren Jacket for babies would be soo expensive. As I was leave I noticed the orginal price of the jacket was $165.00 I walked out with a $155.00 savings!

Macy's deals

Friday I was at the mall with a friend and stopped by Macy's. I normally don't even bother with name brand items for my infant because they tend to be to pricy. But I decided to humor myself and this is what I found.

Blue and Brown puma track suit for $6.74 orginally $44.00
Ralph Lauren Blue and white pjs for $4.48 orginally $32.50

I saved $69.03 and I am super happy with how these items look on my baby!

Marshalls shopping

One of the many best places to shop is Marshalls. I don't usually go there because I didn't know there was one near me. Today I was at a shopping center for something specific and passed a Marshalls. Although I was kind of in a rush I did find baby deals. My baby's new sippy cup.

This is the exact one I got my son for $3.99. The cheapest I found this one online is $36.95. I did find other colors as cheap as $5.99 online, not including shipping.

I also bought my son socks and a wall decor. I will share details on the wall decor later.

Book club

For as long as I could remember, I've always wanted to be in a book club. My friend started a book club a few months ago and today was the first day I got to attend a meeting. Great food, great company and a nice discussion. Well every meeting someone wins the book that will be read for the following meeting. Today I won the copy of the book this month. How lucky am I?

My new read Bossypants by Tina Fey

Walmart Deals

Everytime I sit down to write someone for this blog, something happens! Between husband, baby and life, I am not sure where all the time goes. I stopped at walmart the other day to see what kind of deals I could find. I found a huge toy selection that was 50%. I guess it is the christmas leftovers but these were not christmas toys. I didn't find anything my son would enjoy for a few years except a sing a ma jig toy.

Also, if you like eating candy canes, they are marked down to $0.10 a box.
