Winner Winner

Thanks to everyone that entered my giveaway!  GBR1980 from the bride-onicles blog has won and I have contacted her! She will have 48 hours to claim her prize.  If I don't hear from her by then another winner will be drawn. 

On a wedding note, I'm extremely glad that the Duke and Duchess have snuck away to a honeymoon.  Good for them.  I hope they are busy doing their "duty" and making adorable little babies to be heirs to the throne. 

Mr. ST and I talk about our honeymoon like it's a mythical creature that we would like to see one day, but most likely never will....I know, a bit unenthusiastic, right?  I'm hoping it will be in the budget, but it's more the time of year that will determine if we go at all.  As of right now, my career in education and his career working at a university do not have the same "off" seasons.  We are only able to go away the week after Christmas if neither of us wants to use up the very little vacation time we get through the year.  So, it's still way up in the air.  Maybe I'll have a different career by then...who knows?!?

On another totally unrelated note, if you are at all into couponing, you should check out Living Rich with Coupons. I went to Pathmark this weekend, got a 112.97 bill and spent only 55.62!!!!!!  It was INSANE.  I followed the tips and coupons that pop up on the site.  Just a warning, it puts about 10-12 updates A DAY in your reader.  It's a bit much, but SO worth it!!

For my last and final rant, I kept trying to get a free Swiffer from their facebook page, but within 18 minutes 12,500 were gone.  The page would not load correctly, or if it did, it did not register all the way through.  UGH!

Do you coupon?  Hunt for deals?  Sign up for EVERY free offer out there?  :-)

How awesome!! Thanks so much!!

I used to get the Sunday paper and clip coupons but then it was almost like I was buying stuff that I didn't need just to use a coupon. I realized since its only Groomzilla and I were really didn't buy much that we could use coupons on..then the papers started piling up because I didn't have time to clip and I finally cancelled the newspaper. But I am beginging to wish I had it back again!! I felt so satisfied when I actually did save a substancial amount on a grocery trip!

Wow, I am really impressed by your savings. I use coupons but I think the most I ever saved in one trip was about $40. I will have to check out living rich!!
