CVS Free-Bee of the day!

So I am very new to the whole couponing idea but there is nothing like free stuff to get my blood hot and ready to is the day I got my first FREE items today using a coupon!
I am super stoked!!!!  Heck-to-the-yea!!!

Dove Men+Care deodorant regular price $4.99 with CVS card $.99 -$1.00 coupon = FREE!!

You can only print 2 from your computer which is a bummer but I saved $10 which makes me a happy camper :)

Whos the Boss?? Baby Braden!!

Since I have moved to Chicago I have made one friend, Megan.  Megan was preggers when I met her and has since had her baby.  I am so excited to see her with baby Braden.  Yesterday I went to her house expecting that we would go to the store Braden had other plans. 

I got there around 4pm and we packed a diaper bag and she fed Braden.  She is breastfeeding and must have the most yummy milk because that baby would not stop eating.  Braden ate from 4pm to midnight!!  My poor friend.  No shopping for us.  We are hoping that church tomorrow goes better.

New Budget/Extreme Couponing

This week my hubbs and I got a big blow to our weekly/monthly budget.
So big that it looks like eating and driving may be out of the question. :/
At first I didn't know what we were going to do....until TLC: Extreme Couponing happened.
I don't know if this can save our budget but by God we have to try.  
I am praying that God will supply all our needs according to HIS riches (cause we sure don't have any) and glory.

So since we are broke (not a joke).....I used to pick up a FREE printer (in amazing condition with ink!!)
The only thing the printer was missing was a printer cable.  I checked it out on Best Buys website and it was $30 bucks!!!  Way to I checked out  I found one for $2.39 SHIPPED!!!  AMAZING!!!!  

Now I can print coupons I feel like I also need a subscription to the Chicago Tribune to help collect coupons.  So I checked out the prices and looks like I can get Wed, Thurs, Fri and Sun paper delivered for $1 a week!!!  HELLO!!!  Great deal!!

I am now truly on my way to start my journey as a bonified couponer.  I will keep you posted on my deals and I hope to save our budget!  So far looks like God is on our side!!!
