Free toothpaste!

My first good deal of the week. If you are a Wegmans or Dollar General shopper, you can get free toothpaste. There is a coupon in Sundays (February 1st) paper in the Smart Source for $1.00 Colgate Toothpaste, which is on sale at Wegmans for 99c and Dollar General for 85c. I am learning with my coupons to exchange coupons with friends, or get a few extras from people who do not want their coupons. That way, you can have three or four toothpastes stocked up until the next coupon.


Lately it seems like everyone I talk to is interested on saving money. With grocery prices steadily rising, the downturn of the economy, it seems. We have a family of 5 and spend an average of $85-$90 on groceries per week. Several people have asked how we do this, what things we eat, recipes, etc., so I thought I'd try blogging, in hopes of sharing my ideas and also hearing ideas from others on reducing our family budget.

Please feel free to share coupons, sales, recipe ideas here!
