I see you have a young child in the home. Please do your homework before exposing children/adults to all the scented things out there. Remember "clean" doesn't have a scent.....it is just clean. Give those as gifts or better yet don't buy them even if they give them away. Try essential oils that have "side benefits" not side effects. Read Kelly Preston (John Travolta's wife's story about her son and the trip to ER after breathing cleaning products. Wish this were just my opinion, but it's documented fact these days.

Hi Apron Pockets!
Thanks for the advice. I have heard of the dangers of these products. Actually, I just brought them home because they were money makers. Actually, $3.50 for every coupon. So I use the profit to buy the things my family can really use that I rarely see coupons for. Thanks for the heads up though!

Hi Alisa!
I just discovered your blog this week & am learning so much. I've signed up for ebates (through your link so I hope you got my referral bonus!) & due to my job as a personal shopper have already earned a significant amount, if they through - have you had any difficulties at all? I'm also going to use restaurants.com to buy some GCs and get ebates back:)
On this shopping trip, I noticed that you had a coupon triple - is that a special going on at Kroger in your area or does Kroger always triple coupons that meet certain criteria?
Thanks for all the help & advice!

Hi Alisa! Elaine told me about your blog. I am in the process of learning how to save on our groceries and such too. Thanks for all your helpful posts. I have one question so far...how do you know about the catalinas?

Hi Shellie,
How cool to be a personal shopper. I have wondered about that. And thanks for letting me refer you! The Krogers in my region (Texas, Louisiana) Triple up to .39 coupons and double up to .50 coupons everyday. And they will do this on 3 like coupons, per transaction. That is why you will see me buying in groups of 3.

Hey Shawna!
Your Ashlynn is so cute. I have been keeping up on Elaine's blog.
About Catalina's, I get on Hot Coupon World and read what is going on at my stores before I go shopping. Usually there is alot of chatter about big money makers like these. Also, I subscribe to moneysavingmom.com, which is basically a blog, and she gives awesome heads up about these deals as well. LMK if you have any more questions!
