A year of savings Days 15, 16 and 17

Jan 15. I had a pay-it-forward post last month on my blog. I made three aprons to send to the bloggers that signed up to also do a pay-it-forward. I found the pattern for the half apron online, I already had the flapper apron pattern as well as all the fabric. So the only cost to me for this fun giveaway was the postage.
Jan 16. I got a $5 coupon for Glucerna cereal in the mail. I find freebie sign ups on the forums at
Jan 17. Match up coupons with sales for maximum savings. Food Pyramid has Farmland bacon on sale for $2.50. I used $2 coupons that were in the Sunday paper 2 weekends ago and that brought the price down to just 50 cents.


  1. Aww, I love my apron. It looks so cute in the picture. :)

  3. Woohoo! I got my BEAUTIFUL apron in the mail today from Rhonda! Mine is the green one and it's reversable!!! I am so proud. I have worn it all afternoon and not once have I entered the kitchen! It is too cute to get dirty! Thank you Rhonda!!!

  4. Susan, you are very welcome. but it is OK if you get it dirty, it will wash up just fine, just might need a little pressing afterward.
    I am glad you liked it!
