Back to School Shopping


Back to school shopping can be very expensive.  Especially if you have multiple kids in multiple activities.  If you have the time and patience, you can save a TON of money on school supplies.

My advice to you, don't go out in one trip and buy everything.  You will end up spending WAY more money.   Your best bet is to look at Staples and Office Depot ads every week.  They almost always have a few items each week for a penny or quarter.  You can check out those ads HERE and HERE.

I will try my best to post my favorite Back To School deals each week to save your family money.  Happy shopping, and enjoy the last month of summer!

Bessy's Best is the Best!

Have you tried Bessy's Best dairy products?  If you haven't, I highly suggest you do!  They are made with all natural ingredients and nothing is added!  Plus they're made at a local dairy farm in Sterling, North Dakota.

My family and I got to tour their farm on Monday, and we all had a blast.  And the best part of the tour, their products were WAY cheaper than at the grocery store.  I got a gallon of milk for $3.50!

So, if you are looking for local, natural dairy products, look for Bessy's Best at our grocery stores, or head out to their farm to stock up.

New Mexican Restaurant in Bismarck


There's a new AUTHENTIC Mexican restaurant in Bismarck: La Carreta!  My family and I went there last weekend and loved it.  Their prices are a bit lower than Paradiso and Fiesta Villa, and the food is WAY better.  So if you're craving some Mexican food, head on over to La Carreta, which is located just south of Kirkwood Mall.

Coupon Organization

Coupon Insert Organization

When you read my posts about deals around town and I mention the 8/12SS or the 8/5RP,etc, you know that I am talking about the inserts from the paper, right?  If not, go HERE for a further explanation.

Well, I wanted to show you how I keep my inserts organized, so right down there is a picture.  I take a sticky note, fold it around the inserts for that week, write the date, and file it in a drawer in my kitchen.  I also keep all my All You magazines in there since they have so many coupons.  This is a lot easier than clipping coupons each week!

Do any of you have any helpful coupon organizing tips?  If so, please feel free to share!
