Saving Money shopping - 85% saving

I have a new love in my life... Coupons! I have been hunting them down and looking for the best deals. There is no way I could large shops with tons of them, it would take way too long, but picking the bits up little by little I have made some successful savings. BUT remember its not a saving if it is not something you would not normally use!

Yesterday I went to Sainsburys to pick up a couple bits so here is a break down of what I got and Prices:
  • John West Steam Pot - £2.69
  • Shape peach and passionfruit yoghurts x2 - £1.50 each 
Total cost - £5.69

Of course I had a few coupons for this and there was some offers too, so these were what I had for savings:
  • Sainsburys Brand match from previous shop - £1.32
  • Sainsburys Brand match from previous shop - £1.00
  • coupon £1 off any two shape yoghurts - £1.00
  • Coupon £1 off any steam pot - £1.00
  • Two for £2 on shape yoghurts - £0.50
Total of coupons/savings - £4.82

This meant that I got £5.69 worth of goods for a mear 87p! That 9p an item. As you will know I can't eat couscous but this was brought for my dad to try and from the machine I got another 50p steam pots and double nectar points on fuel, which is handy because I need to fill up! 

Why not give it a go

11th Birthday Card

I had the challenge this week of creating another boy card! I am terrible when it comes to boy cards but I think I kept the ribbon and glitter under control (maybe!).

This card was for my Dads colleagues son, he was turning 11 and my Dad said he was at their house that day so I told him it would be rude not to take a card! (any excuse to get crafty!) I didn't have much time so I decided to spend more time colouring than paper layering but I think I'm happy with how it looks!

This is what I came up with:

Products Used:

  • 5x5 Card base
  • Paper Cellar 6x6 pad in 'Checks'
  • Party Time Cling stamps in 'Cookie'
  • A number of pro markers
  • purple Card Candi
  • stickles in 'Gold'
  • Circles and Scalloped circles nestablities
  • Blue Cardstock
