On blogging and summer and school

Hey readers! Once again time has gotten away from me. I have let the blogging get pushed aside in favor of summer, playing with the kids, birthdays and the upcoming start of school! Forgive me. I hope to get back into a routine soon.

I also want you to know why I have this blog. I started blogging to share my deals and teach others how they too can save money. I don't blog to make money. I have never made a single CENT off this blog. Sure, there are ads on here, but nothing has ever been paid to me. I will continue to blog for as long as I enjoy it. However, when my life dictates it - the blog is pushed aside in favor of family. I hope you can understand that.

That is all- I hope you are enjoying the end of the summer and having fun.

Happy deal making!

Mad/Crazy Deals again!!!

I noticed these crackers on sale at Kwik Trip 3/$1. I had coupons (from a tear pad) that I've held for a long time. The coupons were for $0.60/2.

Since they were essentially $0.33 each -- I got them for only 3 cents each!

I may have bought 30+ of these in the peanut butter cracker flavor............

School is coming and the kids love them!! (and the expiration date is end of November)
