Not sure if I can claim this one or not, but I figured I'd post it anyway. Roxanna can decide if it counts or not.

Talked Bill's dad into giving him his old car instead of buying him a new one that he would have to make payments on. If he had to make payments that would be that much less he could pay me every month to pay back all the money he owes us. So I figure I saved him at least $5000.

Total Spent ZERO, ZIP, NADA!
Total Saved $5000


Can't beat it when someone GIVES you a great little car like this!

I knew I had some more!!

BiLo, 12-30-2002; spent $26.91; saved $18.00 with Christmas clearances

JCPenney; 12-27-2002; sandles for the girls; spent $2.99; saved $7.00 with discounts and sale

JCPenney; 12-27-2002; portraits; spent $12.72; saved $12.23 with discounts and sale

Thing I don't like about shopping at Piggly Wiggly is that there is no card to scan. If it's on sale it rings up that price.

Jennifer, I didn't look. Their ad had DP, but I think it also has 7UP. Let me look real quick and I'll get back to you.

Can't find the ad now. Figures! But I am pretty sure it it also 7UP, one of the orange drinks and a rootbeer. Just call the closest one and ask. They should be on sale thru Saturday.

Oh, and you have to have the coupon from their Sunday flyer. But there should be plenty in the store. And it is 6 12 pks per customer. I made Bill get some with me so I could get more! LOL!
