here is where i store everthing....

So i've had a couple of request of pics of where I store everything. I have been blessed with a kitchen that has TONS of cabinets, so that's one place. After those were full, I had to get creative. And, thankfully outside of my bedroom i have a small storage place that majority of my health and beauty aid go, cleaning items, nonperishable foods, and I also have another fridge out there. I have a frdige and and small chest freezer in my kitchen(again blessed with an amazing kitchen! Since Wes has left I've only done small shopping trips and i can see that some items i'm depleting...and that's fine and great!!! I'm going to attempt to post all of my pics!!

I have been accused of hoarding...and that's fine. But when I know that I have enough Capri Suns to last my daughter everyday of the school year and it hasn't even started yet, and I only paid 7 CENTS a box on them...i say hoard away Renee hoard away. In the next couple of days I will post pics of my binder and explain where I get all of my coupons!! Have a great night!

Oh, and by the way, I've only been doing this for about a year!!

Who said Rebates weren't worth it??

Well, they so totally are worth it. The 8.97 rebate was actually a rebate for the Schick Hydro 5 razor. COuple of weeks ago it was super cheap after ECB's at CVS and then there was a Try me FREE rebate. So, I got about $5 in ECB's AND i got my 8.97 back!!!

The other 2 $5.00 rebate were part of a SC Johnson deal. Buy 3 products and get $5 back. Again, another cheap ECB deal at CVS and got $5 back. You could do this deal 3 times(I only did 2).

So this weekend, while sitting at home doing nothing but hanging out with the kids, I made 18.97!!!

Talk about a great weekend!

how's this for a quick trip to Target
