Mismikado Down the Highway - Vlogging from the Road 1

That's right, I'm giving vlogging a shot. Don't know if this will stick but it's worth a shot. If you don't have time to watch the whole thing, the moral is: Barnes & Noble believes that disabled people don't like coffee.

My father-in-law (Hi JD!) keeps picking on me about my absence here. I know it's been MONTHS. And I've thought about blogging often but my heart hasn't been in it. It just seems to take way more time than I have these days. Like even with this post, it was suppose to be quick and simple, but I've been sitting here for 2 hours now and ignoring my half washed sink of dishes.

10/6 Couponing Breakdown - Cheap Designer Jeans

I went to RetialMeNot and printed a coupon for me and my friend and made plans to run to the store today. Each coupon was good for up to 8 pairs.

10/3 Couponing Breakdown - Cheap Diapers and Wipes & Free Groceries & Johnson's

So I know I owe you guys so many posts like our most recent favorite baby gear, life update, breastfeeding update, etc etc etc. But I just haven't felt like writing those posts. What has been keeping me happy and busy though is saving money with coupons. I have created a spreadsheet to track how much I save in each transaction and if I would have bought those items without coupons or not. The results are pretty impressive and maybe I'll share at the end of the year.
To do this however, I breakdown every single transaction and post most of my deals on Instagram. However, sometimes my deals feel too long to breakdown there so on those occasions I will post here.
Today I bought all this ($82.42 retail) for $10.82 and got back $9.97 making it a net cost of only $.21. Below is how I did it:
