Have A Super Special Memorial Day Weekend



I want to say thank you to all you soldiers out there who have spent time fighting for us. All soldiers and families  past  and present. Thank You for what you do and for sacrificing  for all of us. To the families and  friends  of all who have served thank you for your sacrifice. Here's wishing you a very special Memorial Day weekend.

Your in my thoughts and prayers always!


Many Blessings,


The Cute  Couponer


P.S. I am getting ready for the challenge. I am not posting a menu because like any true couponer I'm shopping for some of the stuff I'm  going to make.

Slim Pickings for Memorial Day




The number one reason to coupon is to get food super cheap. Crest is known for  great deals  around the holidays so I flew out of the house this morning to see what I could find. Not much to be found but I did come home with a few deals.

Cucumbers are 4 for $1.00
Watermelons are $3.99
2 20 packs of Coke are $9.00
Small pint size sour creams and dip are .69
Taco Shells are  .69
Teddy Grahams and Animal Crackers are $1.50 per bag.

Like I said no mind boggling deals but a few quickies to get for the weekend and some yummy snacks.


Happy Shopping,

Gearing Up For The Challenge

Slow and steady wins the race. That's what they say isn't it? It works in couponing. No burn out.

Well in order to make this challenge work I made myself a simple little list. Here it is.

Little List

Check out freezer, shelves, fridge, and pantry to see what ingredients I have on hand for weeks 1 and 2.

Buy containers for freezer storage. ( I figure this is worth it since I will be saving a fortune from eating out)

Check sale papers and coupon supply for upcoming ads so I will have lots of goodies on hand.

Pull out my recipe file and get creative.

Enjoy the planning and knowing that I will have an extra months worth of homecooked dinners in the freezer at my beckon call.

I can't wait!!!!

Are you joining the challenge?

Happy Preparing,

The Cute Couponer

P.S. Staples are always a good thing to keep on hand! Milk, flour, Sugar, Meat, Frozen Veggies, Noodles, Rice, Cheese, Cream of Mushroom, Cream of Celery, Cream of Chicken Soups, Lots of different Crackers, and Frozen Biscuits are a must!!!

30 Day No Eat Out Fill the Freezer Challenge



It's back the 30 Day No Eat Out Challenge. This time I'm adding a twist I'm going to fill the freezer with 30 meals by the end of the month. So every night I cook I will make another portion and freeze it. How's that for simple savings? The question is are you going to be joining me come June 1st???


Every day you will get an update and a recipe.

Delicious, simple, and affordable meals to feed the entire family all at your fingertips on a nightly basis.


Stay Tuned for more details!!!

Aldi's At It Again


I love Aldi during Spring and Summer Time!!!

They have such a bountiful supply of fresh fruits and veggies that are really super duper incredulicious.

That's Right.

If you missed the .99 fresh pineapple deal a few weeks ago.... it's back!

They also have .79 cantaloupes... delicious for breakfast and snack time....

( This rate is cheaper than the lady on Wednesday night's Extreme Couponer paid with a coupon)

Remember while you are there to pick up lots of .79 a loaf white bread and freeze it. I love the doughy smell when it defrosts!!!

Happy Aldi Shopping,

Mega Home Decor Clearance at Kirklands


Who needs to spring clean when you can shop and decorate instead! I was on a mission for baby things yesterday and popped into Kirklands Home Store. I didn't have time to stick around but I decided I would come back another day. A few things did catch my eye but I wasn't going to jump course. This morning  I had an inkling to run back by and pay dirt!!!!

They had those really expensive family photo collage frames on clearance for $10.99. I also swiped a gorgeous french high-heel picture at 40% of the green tag. I also got the cutest bag for carring my insane # of coupons for $8.00 and some change and the sweetest little doggie leash holder.

Grand total $33.07

Before Clearance Total $305.99

If you have one go check it out! You will be glad you did!


Happy Decorating,
