Super September

October 12, 2010 at 4:46 am Leave a comment

The month of September was full of supers:  super savings, super crafting, and super shopping.

Mrs. Darci Combs was the guest speaker for our meeting on the 1st and explain to us how to become super savers.  She is a coupon guru and shared her tips and know-how to get products significantly less or even free.  A few of her pointers include:

-get an AJC Sunday paper, or two, or three, or four

-visit iheartpublix.com, especially on Mondays

-don’t clip coupons, just file them according to the insert name

-know the stores you shop at; who are their competitors and what coupon combos do they accept?

-check out Youtube “extreme couponing”

The superness continued with our craft project on the 15th.  We have some super crafters in the group.  Here’s a picture of one of the cookie pan chalkboards one of our mama’s made.  Too cute!

This idea came from: http://www.inspiremecrafts.com/inspireme_crafts/2008/01/gotta-make-it-9.html

We rounded out September with some super shopping on the 18th.  Since we had some extra change in our purse from learning to how to use those coupons earlier in the month, we headed up to the Dawsonville Premium Outlets.  Christmas shopping was the objective for some, others did some window shopping, and others just bought themselves a little something.  Goodies all around I say.

Side story:  On our way back home, we were talking and enjoying our adult conversation when all of a sudden we realized that the road ahead of us was closed.  The bridge was getting a fresh coat of paint.  Neither the detour signs nor the navigation system were really helpful, but after a couple of carefully selected turns, we were back on track heading home.  Add built in GPS to a mother’s set of senses. 😉
