Hot Coupons, What I'm Wearing, and a Prayer Request

I had to share this coupon deal with you!

I visit Hip2Save on a weekly basis and she always posts amazing coupons and deals. Yesterday, she posted about Kraft coupons and Target deals and it was like hitting the jackpot! In addition to the items I bought with the coupons, I also snagged a few other coupons that allowed me to get even more for less.

The best part of the whole thing? I needed all of these items for Thanksgiving!

I bought EVERYTHING in the picture for a little over $10. When each item is usually around $2 or $3 at regular price, I found this to be a steal! I just used the Kraft coupons and combined them with the online Target coupons to do this.

Shredded cheese - 80 cents each ($1/2 Target; $1/2 Kraft)
cream cheese bricks - 44 cents each ($0.50/2 Target; $1/2 Kraft)
Nabisco crackers - $1 each ($1/2 Target; $1/2 Kraft)
Ranch dressing - $1.39 ($0.50/1 Target)
Crescent Rolls - $1.41 each ($0.50/2 Target)
Pie Crust - $1.99 (in store promotion of $0.55/1)

This shopping trip saved me $9.55 off of my total price. Amazing what you can do with a little coupon clipping!


And on a completely different note, my Wardrobe Wednesday outfit!

It is COLD here (we're talking 50's here, people) so I've been sticking to my typical cold weather gear - leggings, boots, sweaters, and scarves. This outfit is incredibly boring, but I do love the pashmina I'm wearing. I got it when my family and I were vacationing in Rome over Thanksgiving, 7 years ago this week. The pashmina is varying shades of orange and gold. It's warm, soft, and it reminds me of one of my favorite family trips.

On a family note, my mom is in the hospital for some tests to check her heart, and I'd appreciate any prayers for her. I'm very worried, and it stinks to be stuck so far away, feeling like I can't do anything to help/comfort her.

Of course I will keep your sweet Mom in my prayers. Being so fr away must be troubling but help her by saying a few prayers. I believe it will help you both :)

I’m starting to get better with coupon clipping, but could do more. I also always try to make a list off the circular and things on sale. You got some amazing deals though!

I love your cold weather outfit. The pashmina is a gorgeous color and I really like your boots too!

Your mom is definitely in my thoughts and prayers. I’m thinking of you. XOXO

I do understand the feeling of being far away! My dad had heart surgery (5 bypasses) 5 weeks ago. He is very active, and had only gone in a coupole of weeks before that to check out a little light-headedness...well...needless to say, we are very thankful and blessed that he did. He was scheduled for tests and scheduled for the surgeries. My mom had passed away in 2004, so he is living alone. I was not able to go up during his hospital stay (and he said he did not want me just "hanging" out while the surgery was happening). so, thankfully, he has a family member taking turns to be with him each week and then my hubby and I were able to get Thanksgiving week off to drive up there and help him, which worked well, since we took him to his follow up appt and he was given the ok to drive again. I still wish we lived closer!

I know you are looking forward to...and it will be great when you are able to spend time with your family.

Continued thoughts and prayers to all of you.

Blessings & Aloha!
