Weekly savings - giveaway

My new goal is to post at least once a week about our family and once a week about our weekly savings. I am finding out more and more that I am really enjoying researching the best bargains out there. I've always been somewhat of a bargain shopper, but since I've been blessed with a healthy hungry husband and 3 hungry little boys I have found that I really don't have a choice in the matter. I am just thankful that this is something that I enjoy and that I feel comfortable sharing with all of you.

I would also like to say that we can NOT wait until the boys are out of diapers. Whew, those things are expensive - we go through A LOT! That being said, I did not post an earlier shopping trip where I stocked up on dog food, diapers, and milk. We are also having to buy 2 kinds of milk right now, Regular and Soy. We have a suspicion that one of our guys has a milk allergy. We'll know for sure next week.

Would any of you readers care to guess how much money ($$$) we spend on diapers in a 12-month period? Leave a comment on my blog page and I will randomly pick the person who gets closest without going over. The winner will receive a pack of 6 of my handmade Daffodils & Dragonflies greeting cards, shipped to you FREE anywhere in the United States. So, come on leave a comment let me know what do you think?


I should note that some of my items in this photo were a gift. (Thank you, you know who you are.) Most of these were items that we needed to have and I believe that every item I purchased was on sale. My Super Sweet Deals
High efficiency Laundry detergent ~ $3.24

4 containers of organic juice ~ $.50 each
This trip was probably my favorite, most of the items in this photo were given to me as a gift as well. (Thanks you, you know who you are!) My favorite part is that I got the 4 containers of ORGANIC juice for a total of $.45 - that's $.11 each people!!! These normally sell for $3.99 each, but they were on sale 4/$5. These were not ringing up right, so by the time the cashier discounted and used my coupons I only had to pay 45cents!!! It was AWESOME!!!
I did not pay full price for any of these item, but here are my Super Sweet Deals:
2 Lysol spray, 2 wipes ~ $.50 each
2 shave cream ~ $.99 each
2 travel body wash ~ $.10 overage
1 toothpaste ~ $.75 overage
Total savings this week (includes only items shown in photos):
Retail value: $88.10
Total spent: -$23.30
Total savings: $64.80
Don't forget to leave your comment for the greeting card giveaway! Winner will be chosen Saturday, June 27 by 7:00pm.

Great deals you got! Does anyone have the pdf file on the Santa Cruz juice saved? I forgot to save it and now it is gone and we love it! I would appreciate it. Our email is dkak75@comcast.net.
Thanks a bunch!

I'm going to guess $1200 on the diapers. It's probably low, but I'm counting on gifts from others. (We still get gifts of disposable diapers from people, and we're on our third baby and use cloth 95% of the time.)

God bless you! I love my kids, but am very thankful they came one at a time over almost five years.

By the way, I would not use cloth with triplets. I'm sure it's been done, but it just can't be worth it!
