Potholder Pass 2

I received my potholders from Sara at and I love them. They match my kitchen really well. She also sent a pin cushion and some recipe cards. Thank you so much, Sara!

I went shopping for grocries for Easter dinner and just some things we needed. I used coupons combined with sales again and I saved another 67.80. I saved 57.58 at Winn Dixie and 10.22 at CVS. That brings this week's total to 207.80. It takes some time and effort but I think it is well worth it and we are eating better than we would without shopping this way. I like to look at is as making money, after all if I saved it and it was stuff we were going to have to buy anyway, then it is making money. So this week, I made about what I would if I worked fulltime at a minimum wage job. Not too bad for my first week.

I hope to spend some time in my studio tomorrow. I decided not to make my youngest an Easter dress. I think making a dress in one day would be kind of stressful especially with all the interuptions from the kids. I think I am gonna get back to my dresden plate quilt. I am making it to hang in my studio and it is kind of fun sewing. I will work atleast an hour or two on the drapes just to prove I am responsible.

Happy Sewing!


  1. Our local news has had a couple of people on who do "extreme couponing"'s the websites:
    Although I have to wonder, after all you saved, if you even need to look at these, lol. You saved a LOT. Good for you!

  2. Thanks, Allie. I will check them out.

  3. OH my goodness! I am amazed at your couponing skills! You have saved a fortune already, and it's only early days yet :)
    Happy Easter to you and your lovely family xxx
