"smart shopping"

I love getting a good deal. Seriously, it pleases me to no end to shop online, save more $ than I would by buying it at a store, and usually have it delivered right to my doorstep too!

I've been researching products for a while so we'd decided which things we were going to buy... but I hadn't sat down and done it yet or found the best places to buy from until tonight. Knowing some things take 3-4 weeks to come in, we decided to buy the big stuff now so we have it before school starts the 2nd week of August and life gets crazy!

I didn't pay any shipping, though 3 items will have to be picked up at Wal-Mart (not like I'm not there 3 or 4 times a month anyway!). I also saved over $70 on the things we bought based on the lowest price available in-store or without online coupons... And I didn't buy anything I hadn't intended to! Even better! :)

I'm especially pleased at the deal I got on the Graco Snugride 32 Infant Carseat/Carrier! $126 :) This was with a coupon and by ordering it as a 'new customer' through I also got $5 off of a pack of the diapers I use all the time... Yes, an ACTUAL $5 savings- less than what I pay at Wal-Mart... with a coupon... and delivered to my door! I may start doing that more regularly if it costs the same as buying them at the store even, because it's one less thing to pick-up while I'm out and there are occasional promotions. You can even use regular clipped coupons there (I think).

Not so bad?


  1. you only go to Walmart 3 or 4 times a month?! I feel like I live there! I go at least 2 or 3 times a week, LOL>......sometimes we go just because we are bored. when we go on vacation I get excited when i see a walmart! my poor husband groans.
