Part of being prepared and living providently is being debt-free!  If Budgeting (yes, I said the B-word) is one of your goals for the new year, check out these links over at the Frugal Find.  Here you can find a link to a free Dave Ramsey budgeting guide download, along with other articles and downloads to help with finances.  (Thanks, Frugal Find!)

We have felt the weight of debt!  (An ambulance ride, a helicopter ride, and five weeks in the hospital without insurance can do that!)  But I am thrilled to say that we were able to pay our debts without claiming bankruptcy.  Currently, the only debt we have is our mortgage (and oh how I'd love to be rid of that!)  Getting out of debt is doable, it just takes some work sometimes.  The freedom we've felt from getting out from under our debt is worth all the work.

Smith's CASE LOT Sale

Circular Page Image
I like to stock up at the Smith's Case Lot sales (and replenish with my coupon finds) and it is here NOW!  This sale usually lasts two weeks but items are "while supplies last" so once they're gone, they're gone. 

Add a few coupons to your Smith's Card to get your total even lower:

HERE for a $3.00 off when you spend $50.00 in one transaction

HERE for a game to win up to $15.00 off.  (I won $1.00.)

If you're interested to know how these case lot prices stack up to Costco prices, go HERE to see Valerie's comparisons.  I LOVE this because it helps me see what really is a good price.

Happy case lot shopping at Smith's and Happy New Year!
