    I used to be pretty serious about money-saving and coupons a few years ago. Then I got pregnant and moved to a new town within a short time period and found myself too overwhelmed to keep up with it. My husband has been talking about us getting back into it and I was a bit hesitant. It’s a lot of work and I find it difficult to just jump right in. Your $5 challenge would make it so much easier for getting started. Thank you!

    My $5 :

    Butterfinger Snackerz 2/$1 – x3
    Halls 1/$1
    Valentines candy – Various Price

    …Butterfingers snackerz buy 2 get $1.00 off – x3 = 6
    Halls – VidPerk $.50 off and All You march mag $.50 off
    Valentines candy was marked 75% off but I think it was more!

    $0.56 – I paid out of pocket because I didn’t want to use up any ups since I didn’t get any back!
