Moving Next Month ----- Texas, here we come!!!!

This may cause us some problems with keeping our buget; however, we are still going to try very hard to maintain it. We are trying not too spend anything that we don't have to on groceries until we are settled in there. We are moving with only what we can fit in our vehicles (as God has told us to). Therefore, besides a small stockpile of bathroom and cleaning essentials we will pretty much be starting over on building up our grocery stockpile when we get there. We are moving about 1 1/2 hours SE of Dallas, 1/2 hour S of Tyler so any advice on grocery shopping with coupons in that area would be greatly appreciated. We are really excited to see what God has in store for us.

Rebates and more ---- Love getting mail !!!

Here's what I've gotten in the mail the last few weeks.



$15 in Pepsi coupons (for the MIR pepsi/tostito)



$15 Mastercard Gift Card (for the MIR Olay buy 2 get $15 GC)



$5 Quaker coupon off your next grocery order (for the MIR Quaker buy 5 products get $5 Qpon)



Coupon for Free Gillette Shampoo (for MIR for buying one Shampoo get coupon for free product)





***$2.00 Check for Sutter home MIR



****$2.73 Check for Palmolive Pure and Clear MIR



*****$7.50 Check for Coors Lite MIR



So I'll be adding $12.23 back into my budget for the rebate checks.
