Hey all the Locals here that read my blog. I have a HUGE favor to ask, and I need you all to pass the word to everyone you know in the area as well. One of my dear friends runs a mission in Knoxville off Rutledge Pike, and they are in desperate need of donations.. Anything, food, HBA items, Clothing, Toys, whatever you can spare... maybe even a few dollars if you have that to spare. They need things to be able to help the needy. They help people in need pay their utility bills, they help with food, clothing, they are just there to help.. Period. So I know all you couponers out there have a great stock pile, and probably got alot of toys or clothing that you want to get rid of before the new rolls in this holiday.. well nows the time. James has a facebook page, so you can go HERE to leave him a comment and ask about the mission. You can also go HERE and see the missions facebook page, Or if you want, I can come get the stuff and deliver it to him. Guys, this is what its all about, and I have been on the receiving end of the generosity of others, and it is truly appreciated when you need something and you can go to a mission and they help you so lovingly. Please guys, pass the word, Jennifer if you read this, please blog about it on your blog.. these guys really need help!!
I had forgotten how much I LOVED Kroger until yesterday. It was their mega event, so we went in to get a good load of groceries, since I had depleted most of my stock pile assisting another family in need. Boy did I make out like a bandit... and many many people were amazed. I gave them all the CouponMommie.com blog site to go to, cause she keeps up with her stuff alot more than me, but I was so proud.... I got 450.and some change worth of grocery's for 207.00. That's taxes and all. I got 25 pds of butter for free plus made 12.50 on them... That's right, I had a bunch of I cant believe its not butter sticks coupons for 1.50 off, and its on sale for .99 so that was a profit of .51 each... They actually paid me to take it. Bryan is going back this evening to try and get some more of that, cause we cleared the shelves... after I asked everyone else in there around me if they wanted some, and gave them coupons to get it free... so I wasn't being too bad by clearing it! Oh, and if you can not find the carnation milk at your Kroger's, Wal-Mart will price match it! And Wal-mart's in our area has turkeys on sale right now for .40 a pound, limit of 2. I got me two yesterday, and going back today for 2 more, lol. Happy Couponing guys!!
