How I've Been Saving a Bundle

Those of you who know me know I coupon shop. I am not embarrassed about this; in fact I usually bring it up in almost every conversation I have. I save a LOT of money doing it. I started over a year ago and my family has enjoyed huge savings on our grocery/Walmart/Target/Sam's Club shopping bill. We also enjoy a HUGE food storage that is not limited to just food. We have everything from toothpaste to soap to pasta and sauce. (Just a warning to the crazy's it is well guarded and password protected, if you get my drift!)

Anyway I did this post right after I went to the class. All the info is included to get started. Anyone locally interested in getting started or for a refresher course I spoke with Stacy last night and said she would be happy to host a gathering on how to get going. (She will come to your home and teach you how)
We spend about half what we did previously on all consumable items. I always know what is on sale and even if I don't use coupons on my trip to the store I ALWAYS buy sale items. Today for example I got boneless chicken breasts, bacon, milk, eggs and cheese ALL on sale, items we use all the time but don't realize how expensive they really are. Once you get your food storage then you can menu plan from your supply. It saves time and money you should give it a try.

I am extremely impressed. I have tried many times to get into coupons, but I tend to loose interest in putting the effort in. I still secretly wish I could find the time and energy to be a coupon queen. Now, I AM a thrift store queen! With as many kids as we have, we know a lot about getting good deals and saving money.

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot .  It's a gift I know. I digress. Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you. All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great. You will need: 3 Tablespoons Baking Soda 8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide 1 drop dish soap Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longe

Yes they are!

Question of the day well actually question of my life time as a mother.... "Are they all yours by birth?"  Um yes, yes they are.  I think they look like me don't you?  Thanks to my friend Peter Loosli for the great photo. I am linking up with Really Are you Serious today for her Mommy and me Monday.  This is an older post so if you want to see what we are up to today click here .

Master Bedroom Makeover Board and Batten

 I highly recommend a few items although you don't HAVE to have them it just makes this project go so much faster.  I bought a pancake compressor with three nail guns included saved me on this project and a miter saw.  I bought both from Home Depot and they didn't pay me to say that it is just where I happen to shop.  I actually had this all measured out and went to Home Depot and they cut the mdf primed boards for me.  However I later purchased the miter saw and was then able to cut things right here at my house.  The nail gun I used is a 16 gauge gun that can shoot nails up to 3 inches.  I used a 2.5 inch nail to cover the thickness of the board and wall. Ok so I recommend deciding how you want your boards spaced first and measure and mark on the wall where you want them.  I tried to do every 16 inches because that is how far apart my studs were but then I realized my wall wasn't an even length and so I have some that look a little off on the ends.  Lesson learned
