Couponed meals

One of the most common questions I get asked in regards to my coupons is, can you really feed a family by buying with coupons?
In a word, yes.

Recently I showed you one of my coupon-ed meals with the breakdown of the cost. Here's another one.

Lunch yesterday...
This came in at $0.35 per serving, and here is the break down

2 boxes of Betty Crocker Loaded au gratin potatoes--- Free after coupons
1 package of Hill Shire Farms Hardwood smoked chicken sausage- $1.50 after coupon
1 bag frozen broccoli- $1.00 after cpn
Milk (for potatoes) $0.35
Butter (for potatoes) $0.11
Cheese $0.50
Total  $3.46
It serves 10, so it comes out to $0.346..rounded up is $0.35 a serving.

It's kind of hard to argue with that math..

'Til next time!

a bit of stitching..

Last night while we watched some Dexter, I got out some osnaburg and started stitching. These will become either banners or ornaments in the near future, I haven't decided for sure as of yet.

A bit more thrifting..

While out and about yesterday, Minion 2 and I stopped in at another area thrift shop. We didn't buy much, as we're trying to pace ourselves..and we have a antique show we want to go to tomorrow, but what we did buy was at a good price, and perfect for our booth.

This set of coffee mugs are just lovely..
They are more mustard in color that the picture shows

This boxed set of stainless steel knives from Japan
and lastly this little vase. Normally I wouldn't have bought this as these type of vases are a dime a dozen at thrift stores, but this one is a Hoosier glass milk glass, so we snagged it.
I hopefully will get these listed over the weekend..and maybe find a few more treasures tomorrow to add to them ;)
