There are a TON of great deals at Walgreen's this week.....go get'um!

You may have noticed my little "savings bar" on the right side of this blog. My GF ,Tanya, asked me how much I save in a month, and I did not have an answer! I did not keep track of weekly/monthly savings-so I decided to start doing that! I separated it by stores and then put the total for the current month at the bottom. EVEN I am shocked by how much money I have saved, just THREE days into this month ($456.90!) ! I encourage each of you to start keep track too!! It really is an accomplishment to be able to save my family money, have plenty of enough for ourselves and have plenty of enough to give away...esp on our teeny, tiny budget! You should be proud when you save money for your families too!
I just have to say...I saw a talk show yesterday and I could NOT believe when the talk show host was SHOCKED by the fact that a family of 5 could live off of $60,000 per year. Are you serious??
