Flying Vikings

Yesterday my son Keagan got a wonderful opportunity provided by a group called Flying Vikings! They provide an opportunity for children with special needs/chronic illness between the ages of 6-18yrs old a chance to get to be a pilot or a passengers and a sibling be a pilot for them if they are not able to physically do it free to them and their families.
They had partnered up with our church and Keagan got to go be a pilot and daddy and brother rode along as passengers! He hasn't been able to stop going on about this since yesterday! Just seeing the pictures and knowing what a wonderful memories it is for him really brought tears to my eyes!
They had a lot of wonderful sponsors there with food and crafts for them as well. I am very very thankful to these people. They are truly blessed for what they do and I am blessed to have them offer this to our family. I hope that many others have the opportunity!

Well I started couponing about 2 months ago I believe? I did the HEB coupons for close to a year now but just started checking sales, matching up and using manufactured coupons and building a stock pile! It has really grown and grown for nothing more then my normal grocerie budget (if even that)

I'm running out of room to put things so I'm going to have to take a break on a few things! My deep freeze is completely full as well as all the pictures I'm about to show! I remember a time when we lived pay check to pay check and did well on our great budget and got plenty for our family of 6 but would run out before the next pay day! Now we can't choose what to eat and have over a months worth of dinners I know off the top of my head.. more if I played around with some recipes!

I scoped out Kmart today because well I wasn't paying attention and thought the double coupon started today lmao and here are a few things I found that were a decent deal on match ups if you have the coupons for them! Now there may be some more that I didn't have c oupons on me for that you might be able to match up or in the sales ad tomorrow!

I wasn't impressed with a few thigns because as always I think kmart drastically jacks up their prices and noticed a lot of items that were priced $1.00 to $2.00 more then what I would pay at HEB, Walmart, Commissary.. etc leaving it not even worth it after the coupon was doubled.


So remember the coupons will be doubled for what I put them for!
