Getting Juiced & Keeping Hairy Legs At Bay

I want to thank everyone for their fantastic support with my blog, facebook page and emails! I didn't realize my blog would become this popular! Thank you!! Slightly overwhelming, but it's keeping me out of trouble! Not keeping me from shopping though!

A big thank you for the email from Lina over at Grocery Alerts--will definitely look into the coupon trader application--will be easier for everyone! Have been working my butt off getting all the envelopes done--should be all out by Monday!

Had an interesting thought provoking type conversation with my favorite lady at Shoppers Drug Mart. She made an awesome point about extreme couponing and hoarding. Extreme couponing is fine, as long as it does not exceed or cross over into hoarding. But, keeping a good and healthy supply of necessities, like toilet paper (not for 40 years), paper towels, cleaning products, and non perishables is fine. Smart really. What would happen if there was a job loss, especially in a single income family!?! At least you would have your basics covered, and then you just have to worry about the fresh stuff! Something for every one to consider!

Here are my deals for today. Hit Wal-Mart and London Drugs today, got some great deals! Here goes!

Thanks for the link to the grocery deals! What coupons did you use for the Gillette and Venus? Looks like you're stocked up for awhile! We agree with you on couponing, and think that it can benefit both customers and businesses equally when done right!
