My Great Shopping Trip!

These are the items I got today, visiting two stores, Walmart and CVS.
Here's a rundown on the numbers.
CVS:  Starting with 6 and 2 ECBs, plus a 2.50 ECB from the machine when I walked in this afternoon!
  John Frieda and Biore- Buy $15, get $5 ECB.
    Biore wash $6 - used Buy pore strips, get wash free Q.
    Biore pore strips $6
    John Frieda hair product $5 - used $2.50 Q.
           = $5
  Puffs Plus $.99 - used $1 Q from VocalPoint, they adjusted to $.99.
            = FREE
  Dove Shampoo $4.49, get $4.49 ECB
      used $1.50 Q
             =  FREE with $1.50 overage.
TOTAL OOP at CVS = $1.07, paid in change from my coin purse!  Took home 5 and 4.49 ECBs!
                  Savings at CVS $27.96.

   2 Benedryl Itch Sticks $2.28 each - used $5 off 2 Bendryl products from last Sunday's paper.
   Planters peanuts as filler $.48
TOTAL OOP at Walmart = $.04!!!  The cashier looked shocked, and even checked the coupon, almost like she might try that little trick! haha. Love it!
The cashier at CVS and I had a great conversation about teaching our children the value of saving money this way.  She seemed impressed that my children will know from a young age how to be good stewards of what God has blessed us with. Praise the Lord!

Rinnah is 9 months?!!

Yes, I know, I can't believe it either!  My little miss is already 9 months old, closer to 1 than she is to a newborn, and actually getting ready to walk.  It breaks my heart and makes me smile all at the same time.  I already miss her snuggling in my arms, but am so proud when she learns how to do something new.  What a blessing it is to be your mommy, Rinnah Lorraine.

Easter Weekend and some recent photos of the girls!

We had a great Easter weekend with family and friends.  It was so much fun to really start conversations with Selah about the real meaning of Easter.  She did ask some questions and even told us some of the story.  What a blessing to be able to talk to your child about Christ!
