Coupons and Free Stuff!!

I've gone full force into coupon-mode!!  I have joined groups/ websites..forums...anyplace possible to get a coupon or two for diapers...wipes....food...toiletries....cleaning supplies... etc..you name it, By the end of the month, I should have a coupon for anything and everything we need...plus some left over.
Thank you to a good friend, letting me in on a few secrets...I did pretty well today-my first day:)
I bought about $50.00 worth of stuff for $25.00, including toilet paper/diapers/dishwashing soap/laundry detergent/shampoo/razors--2 free packs of batteries and hair dye for me:)  and I have $12 in cvs bucks....so I think I did pretty well for the first time around....but MAN--alot of work, between scanning websites, printing coupons, checking out flyers..dragging two beautiful babies around finding the exact stuff on the coupons... and then wrapping my sleepy head around the math part....hummmm...I'd still say it's worth it.  A little effort can get you a long way--and I'm committed to saving!! 
Hopefully I will be able to keep up with it:)

Another cool thing I've been doing lately-I've joined a local Mom's group, which is another awesome way to connect and network.  They have classifieds, playgroups, ideas, recipes, exercise advise....everything--I'm pretty excited!
I found my son's first walking shoes for $20.00 today--See Kai Run shoes--brand new in his size--didn't fit the previous owner anymore:)..but never worn....And they are sooooo cute-little bowling shoes.  Usually they are like 40 bucks--

Here are a few cute photos from a recent park adventure!! They are just getting more fun every day:)   They interact so much more now...giggling and tickling each other, and smiling all the time.  I thank God everyday for my two wonderful gifts!  And thank you MUM:)
