Couponing Deals for the week of 04/15/2018

Couponing can be overwhelming and/or time consuming~ I was there.  Completely overwhelmed with the amount of coupons and deals.  It doesn't have to be.  My advice to new couponers is to take it slow.  Start by picking up a Sunday paper and focusing on 1 deal for the week and adding on as you feel more confident and comfortable.  Soon you will be couponing like a pro :)

If have ECB's and/or Register Rewards, go ahead and apply them to this week's deals to lower your out of pocket expense :)

How was your weekend?  We had a wonderful weekend.  The boys had hoped to go outside on Saturday and have a water balloon fight but it was too hot to make that happen.  Sunday was a super windy day but it was nice enough to go outside and play with next door in between rain showers.  I even got to cuddle with the baby~ he is so precious and so cute and loves to cuddle :)  That totally made my day.

Here is our menu plan for this week:
