All You Champions For Kids - Couponing for Good #CBias

This month Champions for Kids is teaming up with All You to bring you Couponing for Good.

As most of you know I am a couponer.  No, I am not one of those crazy extreme couponers.  I like to call myself a smart couponer.  I was SO excited when I heard about this Simple Service project from Champions for Kids.  I have been using coupons for good for years so this project was a natural fit for me and I jumped on the chance to sign up.  This month I will be donating to the Grand Lake Community Ministry (aka The Blue House).  They provide assistance to many families in my area not only with food but also clothing, household needs and utility assistance.

Did you know that one in seven Americans receives food stamps?  The overwhelming majority are in
families with children.  Did you also know that every 34 seconds a baby is born into poverty in America.  That is alarming to me!  We have got to take a stand and help these families!  Couponing is an easy, fun, and cost-effective way to help these families by providing them with food and items that they otherwise could not afford.

I know there have been rough times for my husband and myself and we have wondered how we were going to put food on the table.  But, thanks to couponing we have never had to go without and have actually been able to help other families with food.  I may not be able to give you $100 but I can sure give you $100 worth of groceries that I paid little to nothing for.  Whoever thought a simple coupon could be life changing?  I know I never did, but in the past 4 years I have seen first hand just how life changing they can be.

Yesterday I spent my day getting my coupon binder reorganized, printing off coupons and looking at store ads to make my price match list.  After church, I grabbed my binder, shopping list and price match list, and headed to Walmart.  I was able to get around $150 worth of groceries and health and beauty items for just over $75!  That is half off!  AMAZING!

While I was shopping I picked up a copy of All You Magazine.  There are always TONS of coupons and money saving tips inside.  While I did not use coupons from this issue on my shopping trip I do plan to use some soon.

If you are a couponer I would love for you to join me in this months Simple Service project!  You can find more information here.

If you would like to see all of the deals I got and the rest of my shopping trip, head over to my Google+ album.

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Getting ready for summer with #MyHartstrings #cbias

Is it warming up where you are?  It has been warming up here for a few weeks now.  With spring break over and the temps slowly getting warmer and warmer, it can only mean one thing.... SUMMER is just around the corner! We like to spend our summers at the lake or at the pool.  Last year we practically lived in our bathing suits!  Since we spent SO much time in our suits last year, they were looking a little warn by the end of summer.  Plus both girls have grown so much this year, they needed new suits. I have been peeking at some suits on and decided to go ahead and get new suits!  We may be going to Houston soon so the girls will need something for that trip.  It was REALLY hard to decide on what suit to get the girls, they have such cute options.  Mads is old enough to pick for herself (somewhat) and MG really doesn't care as long as it includes pink. I pulled up and let the girls have at it.  I did guide MG into the green and p
