Happy Mother's Day to all the Smart Shopper moms!

Posted May 11, 2014

My mom and my girls

 

I hope that all the moms out there have a wonderful Mother's Day!  I woke this morning to find that my high schooler had made me pancakes and strawberries for breakfast! It was incredibly sweet. 

The picture above is of my mom and my girls and me at the annual Gail Parkins Ovarian Cancer fundraiser walk many years ago.  That was her last walk and I still think of her every day. If you are missing your mom today, I wish you peace and happy memories.

    jabbo22 - Happy Mother's Day to you as well and thank you so much for your note! I am thrilled that you have saved enough to be able to spend more time with your kids! That is exactly why I started couponing 14 years ago. And congrats on getting them through high school and into college! We have 3 more years until our oldest starts college and last night, she and I were actually looking at the expenses for the schools she is considering. Whew! It is a very good thing I coupon considering the cost of just the basic tuition and fees without room and board. I am sure your girls love to raid your overstock!

    Happy Mother's Day to you Faye! And thank you for all you do for all of us to help us save money! You have enabled me to be a better mom by allowing me to remain a part time employee, by working sales + coupons. I don't do near all I could, but the hundreds of dollars we save each year are amazing! Now that my girls are in college, they love raiding my pantry, and I love sharing. Hope your day was wonderful with your family!

    Thanks everyone! My mom was amazing in every way and we were so lucky to have her for as long as we did. And Happy Mother's Day to you including the mom's of 4 legged family members, too! :-)

    Happy Mother's Day to everyone :) I had the pleasure of running into old time coupon friends at Aldi's and CVS today. And enjoyed passing on the cart at Aldi's to a Mom as a 'gift', no quarter returned - made me feel good to do that!
    What a wonderful photo Faye! You'll smile and cry today remembering, but you're not alone, we were blessed to have the Mom's we had!!! Not everyone is given that gift.
