A huge welcome to all you fabulous Moms. Thank you so much for asking me to speak today and I really hope you came away with some valuable information to start (or continue) incorporating healthier eating habits into your lifestyle. There was so much information to cram in to such a short time, but I hope what I had to say at least got you thinking of how you can trim your family’s budget.

Each month when the Costco home mailer comes in the mail, I trek on in and write down all the prices for the sale items and do a pretty extensive write-up. I include comparisons to smaller sized packages (per ounce, per pound) and let you know what I think is a good deal. For the home mailer that is running through January 27th, click here.
I currently write up some really extensive coupon match ups for Rite Aid over Frugal Living NW. If you are interested at all in saving some serious money on your household items, make sure to check out my weekly deals. For all the information you need to start shopping at Rite Aid, check out the Rite Aid Store Guide I wrote up.

I had a lot of fun talking with you today. I wish I could have talked for hours, this is such a big topic. There are so many different avenues to explore, it’s hard to touch on all of it in one short time frame. Thank you again for including me in your meeting today. Good luck on your journey!
