Reader Spotlight!

I'd love to have some reader feedback. Please let me know what you enjoy reading about here.
Also, if you would like to do a guest post or have me link your blog giveaway LMK


First Transaction
7 x Electrosol - $3 each $2.25/1 Q's
Excedrin $6.99 - FREE Q (not sure why but looking at my receipt it deducted $9.79)
Used a $5/$30 CVS store Q
Paid $2.41 O.O.P
Got back $10, $1.59, and .89 ECB
Second Transaction
5 12-pk Pepsi products on sale 3/$10
2 chips $2/$5
case of water $2.88
used 2 x $10, $1.59, and .89 ECBs
paid $4.10 O.O.P. and got back $10 ECB
I know some people can do better, but I was happy with these transactions. I could have skipped the chips and added another case of pepsi to lower my out of pocket but I knew the kids would appreciate the chips. My sales tax is also 9.75% so my O.O.P. is always higher.
