    I learned a VERY valuable lesson at HT this week! Thanks to Evic and my Huggies coupons, I got 2 jumbo packs of diapers for $3.99 each. I went back the next day hoping to score more, and to my surprise they still had 1 pack left in my daughters size! HOWEVER, at the register, it did not take off the $5 for the evic sale. When I asked the manager why it didn't show, he informed me that the E-Vic sales limits are per week, I thought they were per day! So where it says "limit 2" that means the whole week you can only buy 2! I was very bummed but they were super nice about refunding my money!!! Lesson learned!!!!!

    We make our liquid laundry detergent for about $2 per 5gal. Always use dish rags instead of paper towels. Also use coffee filters to put the kids sandwiches and snacks on instead of paper plates. Consigned kids old toys with Just4Kids so broke even on new toys/clothes purchased. Stayed within my $60 grocery budget for family of 4 for the week with of course coupons.
