Sav a lot

I admit I do not shop at Sav a lot very often.  But this week they have two pretty good deals.  Oscar Mayer hot dogs for 99 cents.  If you have any of the Oscar Mayer $1.00 off two coupons that makes them $.50 per package.  Now that is a good deal.  And if you have kids you can never have enough hot dogs in the freezer!! They also have Peter Pan Peanut Butter on sale this week and there was a coupon in Sunday's Red Plum insert.  Split chicken breasts on sale for $.99 lb.!

Sunday...my favorite day of the week! (ads and coupon day)

Since beginning my fairly new couponing hobby, my favorite day of the week is Sunday. I am not an early riser by any means, usually hitting the snooze at least twice; however knowing that ads and coupons are lying in my driveway gets me right out of bed. I can't wait to see what I can get free or almost free! One Sunday my husband ran off to work with the paper, ads included, and you would have thought I dropped my ice cream! The Sunday edition of the Lexington Herald includes ads from Meijer, CVS, Rite Aid, Target, Wal-Mart, Dollar General, and numerous others. Sunday isn’t the only day ads arrive. Other stores like Food Lion send their ad in the mail on Monday, with sales beginning on Wednesday, and Ken's New Market arrives in my mailbox on Friday, with sales beginning on Monday. Kroger and Walgreens do not come to my home in hard copy form. I have to look them up on the store website. On Sunday afternoons, after church, I spend most of the afternoon perusing through the ads and clipping coupons.  Oh what a wonderful life!

Here It Goes...

Internet surfers beware! I am on the loose and on the blog. As a former teacher, now staying home with a toddler, I find myself with the desire to do something with myself beyond the duties of mothering 3 boys, filling my husband stomach and Facebook. In an effort to fulfill this desire I will attempt blogging. But what of the subject? My recently newfound hobby of couponing it will be. I know there are many couponing sites and blogs but I have yet to find one addressing the geographic area in which I live. Therefore I will attempt to inform others of my bargain finds in and around the city of Lexington, Kentucky. And she's off!
