I have to tell you about the Krazy encounter I had this week!  I was standing in line at CVS purchasing my deals, which included the free Hallmark cards.  The woman behind me was buying one $0.99 card.  I told her she could pick up two more and get them all for free, plus buy a small pack of Cadbury eggs for free too!  She shrugged and said, “No, I have four children and I’d just lose the cards!”  Can you believe it?  She has four children!  She needs to coupon shop!  I tried to encourage her – but she was not buying it.  I’m so glad I put forth the effort to learn how to shop using coupons.  It has changed my life!

It was a great week of freebies and moneymakers!  Check out how I did!  It was an amazing week!   How was your week?
