NOV 18~L’Oreal Make-Up at CVS~Great Stock Up Prices!!

                                        I have heard from more than one source that CVS had great deals on L’Oreal make-up this week. I found LOTS of make-up 75% off today. ( I checked if they had the OralB tootbrush-RAINCHECK) Anyways I took these two pictures with my phone to show a few of the things on sale. There were others too. Some items are only on certain shades, but $13.39 with 75% off comes to $3.32 and if you have a $1 off coupon you can do even better!

Pantry Overflow New Look!

    If you have been on this website before, you may have noticed that I have a new look. My son actually started this website and my daughter has been working on this design for awhile now and she was just able to implement it. I am very grateful because without them this website would not be possible.
If you have any feedback and/or comments, please leave them for me, and if you know or see my kids-thank them!

Stockpiling or Hoarding?? Part ONE


When talking to people about coupon shopping, stockpiling, and buying multiple items, a common thing I hear is “I don’t want to be a hoarder or anything like that.”  At first I kind of took it personal like people thought I was a hoarder or that I had a some kind of problem. But once I explain the difference in hoarding and stockpiling then most people understand how beneficial it is to stock up (stockpile) when things are on sale.

Stockpiling is ‘stocking up’ on items you use in your house when they are FREE or at rock bottom prices so that you do not have to pay full price when you run out. Then they are not needed items and you can start cutting your expenses  because you are spending less -because you need less. .

Here is an example of how  to ‘stockpile’ household items .  READ MORE

Herbal Essence Shampoo and Conditioner  is on sale for $3 at Rite Aid with $2 +Up Reward back, and I have $2 off coupons(which means I make $1 for each bottle I buy!). Now I have 10 coupons. This makes it possible for me to get 10 for FREE. Now, by getting 10 bottles of shampoo am I hoarding them? NO. There are four girls that use shampoo and conditioner in my house. That means we go through 2 shampoos and 2 condtioners  a month-48 bottles in a year. At $3 each, that is $12 a month. If I buy the 10 bottles and use my coupons getting them for FREE, then I have 3 months that I can cut my costs by $12. By the time those are gone, there will have been another sale for hair products,  and then I can repeat the process.
By doing the same thing with multiple products you use in your house, you can cut your expenses dramatically, eliminate running to the store to pay full price, and have the ability to spend money on produce, milk, and meat (or whatever you choose).

 **If you have said “I don’t want to be a hoarder..” Then most likely you will not become a hoarder!

Now, if shampoo and conditioner of another brand goes on sale and I have the same opportunity and do the same, and the same again with another brand, and another brand, and another brand-and end up with 100+ bottles in places shoved all around my house and my kids are using them as building blocks…that could be considered hoarding!

Christmas Giving Idea~Using what you have

        This is a Priority Mail Flat Rate shipping Box. Flat Rate Means it is a Flat Rate of $10.70 for whatever you can mail in this box. It is not measured by weight. I have friends and relatives that live out of town/state that I want to include in my Christmas giving, but when you factor in a gift AND shipping it seems like it isn’t worth it sometimes. Well here is a picture of what I fit IN this box.
There was room for all of these items ($35 worth) plus room for cards, pictures etc. So what I did. was I got a few of these boxes for some people that I will have to mail gifts too, and as I get things for FREE or really great deals, i add them to their box. Then when the box is as full as I can get it, I add a card, some pictures, or anything else, and I address it and mail it for $10.70! The gift may not be a new sweater or cash, but giving the items that I can get good deals on, I am saving them their money and am able to get them a gift that is more than I would have been able to actually spend (or may not have even given a gift at all).  Depending on who you mail them to, you can do it by couple or family as well. If my family is all going to be at my grandma’s for Christmas, then I can just send all the boxes there and everyone will get theirs at the same time, and maybe they can trade with each other or something!

This was another idea I am working on too. I have a bunch of Christmas stockings that are extra because of family members being added, we had to change our stockings to match! Also they have cute ones at the Dollar Store too! The items that we get with coupons can be put in stockings to give away as well. You can save on wrapping pape,r ribbons, and time! I had the earlier post where I made some things into gift baskets, and that looks neat too. (With a stocking not everything has to match!).
Well, hopefully I have inspired someone to think about giving, and how to use what you have (or what you can spend less on). If you have any great ideas you would like to share, let me know so I can pass them on. If I come up with more, I will post them too. I just hate coming close to Christmas and being stressed, or wishing I could have gave more people gifts so I am trying to avoid that this year.
