I Love Coupon $ense!!

I just have to shout it from the rooftops that I LOVE COUPON SENSE!!!

I few months ago I finally, after hearing people talk about coupon sense for years, took the plunge and joined coupon sense to see if it's all everyone tells me it is. Well, it is.

I have had many great shopping trips, thanks to my instructor and friends (who tell me how to get the best deals)... but I think today's trip was, by far, the best!

Ok, so here's what I got:

2 bags of cheetos
2 gallons of milk
3 containers of Tylenol (24 count in each, I think)
3 10 packs of disposable razors
3 Dial hand soap pumps
2 boxes of Swiss Miss hot chocolate
2 boxes of Zatarains rice mix
1 3Liter Arrowhead water
3 boxes of Hefty ziploc bags
5 boxes of Betty crocker mashed potato mixes
6 cans of carnation evaporated milk

Drum roll please.... I got all of this for a total of $1.39 !!!!
(yes, that includes tax)!!!!
I saved a total of 98.42 % WOW
If if you're talking dollars and cents... I saved $87.12!!

Seriously, you really should look into coupon sense. The savings are ridiculous!!

Oh and if you end up joining, please mention my name (Rachel Peacock from Arizona). :)

I think I'm going to go back today for another round of savings!!

some catching up...

Here are some pictures of Alex in gymnastics class. I think it's so funny how he's looking at himself in the mirror during class. :) We're done with gymnastics for now. Hopefully there will be more to come! :)

Gracie got a blanket from our ward's Relief Society... isn't it pretty?!? I love it! She does too :)

More than meets the eye...

Alex is THRILLED to finally have his halloween costume (he's been wearing it almost nonstop since we brought it home)! His latest obsession is with Transformers and his favorite color is yellow so, of course, his favorite Transformer is Bumblebee! :) I told him to strike a pose and this is what he did (with sound effects, of course)!

He's also discovered that he loves the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It's so crazy that my 3 year old likes the stuff that was cool when I was a kid! Oh and speaking of him being 3... he'll be 4in 9 days!! wow! crazy.

Cousins and Kitten

For some reason schools around here have a 'Fall Break'. I don't really know why there's a break at this time, but we'll take it! Sage got a week off of school and we got to spend two of the days with Jessica and her kids! One day, we met at the Children's Museum (which was amazing!!) and spent many hours there (and could have spent many more)!! It was so much fun and it was really great for the cousins to play together! I hope to become a member of the museum so we can meet there for play dates at least once a month. :) Then a couple days later we headed over to the 'East Side' (lol, that's what Sage calls it) to spend the day playing at Jessica's house. The kids had lots of fun! And I had fun talking to Jessica and just hanging out with our babies :)!
Thanks for playing, Jessica! I hope we can do it again soon!
Here are some pictures from one of our play dates.

OHHh! and we rescued this cute little kitten (emphasis on little... I think he's only about 4 weeks old) a week ago!

Look Mom and Dad! We got a picture with all 6 of our kids together! Pretty cool :)

I want this. I don't know where I'd keep it but I must have it. How cool is this!! They call it a Food Rotation System. Anyone have one?

A new adventure...

Sage and Alex are now in their first-ever gymnastics class! They have been to 2 so far and loved them! They are in different classes, but they are one after the other so I get to spend 2 hours there, once a week, watching! :)

Here's Sage in action... she's the same size as the other girls in her group but I'm sure she's the youngest. She's so tall for her age.

I didn't get to take any pictures or video of Alex yet... hopefully next time!

3 months old!

Grace hit the 3 month mark while we were in Sedona!
I'm so late in posting this that she's already 3 1/2 months... oops!
It looks like she has red hair... but not in real life. I tell people I got my redhead (in pictures). ;) In real life she's blonde.

Grace has been reaching for and holding toys. She has been smiling, laughing, cooing, gurgling, kicking, and being so cute a lot! She is very good at holding her head up and steady and making everyone smile. She brightens up every day! OH and she's very good at eating (if you couldn't tell) ;)

Tales of our Trip

We took a very spontaneous trip to Sedona recently and, of course, took dozens of pictures!

I think I'll let the pictures tell the stories for me. :) It was a wonderful trip! ... so nice to get away from this killer heat and into much less intense days and blissfully cool nights!!
we had to be creative... :) (yes, that is cereal in a coffee pot!)

Look closely :) it's not just a tree:

the squirrel was following us...

huge ants!

Have you ever been to Sedona?
