    My freezer is also straining at the seams! I only went to Shoprite…spent $152 and got $486 worth of groceries 🙂 . My favorite head cashier closed a lane so I could check out without people complaining about how long it takes for me to get through the line. We timed it…22 minutes! No wonder people get annoyed!

    Anyway…thanks to you and your fabulous site I was able to give away Ball Park franks, Shake and Bake, Al Fresco sausage, San Giorgio pasta, Heinz relish, Hunt’s ketchup, Borden’s cheese, Zip lock bags and more to my brother (who has been out of work for over a year). He was embarrassed, but I told him I hadn’t paid more than $3 for all of that. He was shocked, and then accepted the stuff. I also sent my daughter with 5 bags full of things from my stockpile ( has occurred to me that I might bordering on “hoarding”!) for her friend who has just moved in to a new apartment and has nothing. I love that my couponing has allowed me to save hundreds of dollars off my own expenses, and has given me the added perk of being able to be charitable to others as well. Thanks Cindy!

    I have been taking advantage of the deals as well. Been keeping track of my savings during the month of May and it is well over $1000.00. My husband thought I was crazy until he saw the savings for himself. I have been able to pick up items for my kids and grand kids for nothing….. During these tough times it is nice to be able to purchase quality items and share with others.
