Is Your Spouse or Significant Other On Board?

One of my Google alerts today was a recap of Doomsday Preppers. Being that we choose not to have television/cable at our house, I only watch the program occasionally after it's uploaded to YouTube. ;-) The summary from Entertainment.Gather.com got my attention: it was the recap of prepper Janet. "Janet Spencer is the next prepper who is planning for an attack. She believes that her location is the prime place for an attack to destroy weapons. Planning to care for survivors of a nuclear attack, Janet is prepping her home to take victims in. She then reveals that she does a majority of her … [Read more...]

Week 10 – $9.90 a week Challenge Results

survival 020

I will admit that this week was by far the most challenging week for me. I sat down Tuesday with my ad's and my coupons and I just couldn't make anything click. Just before calling it quits, I decided to head on to the store and see what I could get for $9.90 and I was actually surprised! I ended up with 4 things of mac n' cheese, store sale for 50 cents a box. 2 Classico Alfredo sauces, on sale 2/$5 and I had a $1.00 off coupon for 2. 2 BBQ sauces, store brand and price is only 98 cents, but if you recall the little coupons booklets I spoke of a few posts back... there was a $1.00 … [Read more...]

Week 9 – $9.90 Challenge Results!

Week9.1

Boy how time flies, it's already week 9 of the $9.90 a week challenge... the whole thing started a few weeks back with the challenge of what can you add to your preps for $99 bucks. I figure we can all spare at least $9.90 a week for the betterment of our preps. This week, the video explains better (just click on the "My YouTube Channel" under Favorites) than I can in writing, but I'm going to list it out for you, because, if you read on my "About Me!" page, I was floor boarded when my husband said, "Hey let's prep!" I immediately started learning my stores, learning to coupon, and … [Read more...]

Week 8 – $9.90 a Week Challenge – Results!

At times, when you sit down with all the sales papers and coupons spread out in front of you - you have to stop and wonder... what the heck!Today, for me, was one of those days... and then it jumped out at me!I first noticed that my CVS  had the 4.0 ounce size of Colgate Total - Advance Whitening on sale for $2.79 with $2.00 EB awards. I know I downgrade CVS a lot here, but it wasn't really like I got it for .79 unless.... I used my EB's right away!So, the limit was 2 for card carrying members.I purchased my 2 toothpaste and submitted 2 coupons... one for .75 off and one for 1.00 … [Read more...]

Week 7 – $9.90 Challenge Results

Fighting a little bit of illness but still managing to get out and get some deals today! Here's the video, if you'd rather watch than read! If you'd rather read... well, here's what I did! My store ad showed this... and I circled the deals that I could stack coupons on top of: I had one .75/3 coupon for Tuna Helper, 2 .50/2 coupons for Suddenly Salad, and a peelie coupon for .60/3 Pillsbury Grand Biscuits! I mill my own wheat for bread but have yet to learn the art of biscuit making, so I still buy biscuits!  … [Read more...]

Week 6 – $9.90 a week Challenge! Results!

I can't believe we're already in Week 6 of the $9.90 a week challenge! Wow! We've accumulated a lot of things so far and this week is no different!I tried something a little different this week and I'm not sure I really like the results. My local CVS - had a couple of deals but the brain work that went into it almost pushed my last button. Maybe I was already tired before I started looking through the sales paper - I don't know. I don't normally buy into the Extra Bucks that CVS offers for their card carrying customers, because CVS is typically higher on most everything! I can find it … [Read more...]
