some inspiration...

I am STILL working on the lonnnng Florida blog post. But in the meantime, I thought I'd post about my stock pile.Shelby posted a pic of her stockpile and has done an AMAZING job with explaining couponing. It not only inspired ME to post pics of my stockpile (which I find rather embarrassing...but at the same time am pretty darn proud of) but I'm hoping it will inspire YOU to start couponing!!!

I am so sorry dear friends that these pictures are C-R-A-P-P-Y. I ran down this morning just to snap a few shots and forgot Ryan framed out our basement and that my neatly organized shelves had been shoved around. :( But still- I think you'll get the picture :)








SO... there it is! EVERYTHING (except for the diapers) have been completely free. The candles were money makers (I earned over 400 dollars in gift cards with those). I have yet to find a way to get diapers to be totally free BUT I bet I've averaged around 2-3 dollars a pack. Not bad... but we're burning through them quickly. I guess I've got to start finding some good diaper deals again. Hmmm... lets see... I have more air fresheners and cleaning products than I know what to do with (hence the blog give-aways? :) And I forgot to take pics of the tupperware bins full of playdoh. I seriously have 2 ENTIRE BINS full of play-doh. WOW.

Alright... stay tuned... long FL blog post coming right up :)

I'm completely jealous of all your deals! I consider myself a pretty conscious shopper, but you blow me out of the water. Some day I'll try to be as organized. HA! :)

Awesome stash! We have all of our health and beauty/home stuff stored at Ty's Grandparent's house...I think probably a good 30-40 boxes FULL of stuff. I've stopped buying that kind of stuff and stuck to food now because it's taking over! Don't you just love not having to pay for anything full price when you run out :)!! Thanks fo sharing
