My Little Pony Madness!

I got word that MLPs were on sale at Toys R Us Buy One, Get One today ONLY, so armed with some MFQs (manufacturers coupons) I headed to the nearest store. I called before going and was told they honor MFQs, but I doubled checked when I walked in. I had 3 BOGO MFQs that I used in 3 seperate transactions. Total OOP (out of pocket) was $.51 for two ponies! A TOTAL of $1.53 for SIX ponies!

I am going to have one very happy 3 year old come Easter Morning!

Heard Around Town

If you haven't guessed, I'm pretty jazzed on saving money. I get a thrill getting an awesome deal and am always on the hunt for coupons!

A couple of days ago, while checking out at Safeway using the new self checkout kiosks, a Safeway employee was helping a man use the system. She reached for the Catalina Coupons (those things that spit out as you checkout), and said "don't forget your coupons!"

The guy laughed and said "I don't need those. I'm a guy".

Huh. Apparently money only grows on trees if you are a guy. We get Aunt Flow, and they get money trees.

The Safeway employee offered me the coupons (good ones at that!!) which I gladly accepted. I said to the man, "these are as good as cash on the products you normally buy, you know that, right?"

Again, he just laughed. I can't help but hope he thinks twice when throwing the coupons out next time. And if he doesn't, I hope I'm there to catch them again! (what?? I already said they were good ones!!)

After that encounter, I went on to pay just $.74/product for hair care stuff using coupons and sale shopping.

Frugal Missus Takes Over The World

Ok, so I may have exaggerated a tad... I'm just taking over the blog, because as you may have noticed, Frugal Mister doesn't do a whole heckuva lot of updating. I'm just tired of trying to think of new and exciting "Frugal Missus..." blog titles.

So, to them, Frugal Missus Bids Adieu (to the kitchy blog titles, NOT the blog!)

Frugal Missus Gets Back On The Horse

I know it's been AGES since I last wrote, but we've been sticking with our debt payment and envelope system loyally!! To date, we have paid off all of our credit cards and are working on selling our Acura to get out from the $556.45/ month payment. Selling that bad boy would basically equate to us being able to pay off all of our debt by September 2011, rather than the projected payoff date of November 2013! HUGE difference, and well worth it, in my opinion.
