So...we've been trying to get a bit more organized around the house...one thing that has bugged us is that the kids can't figure out how to "reseal" the cereal bags (in the boxes) and the cereal goes stale. So we bought this nifty little item. Each canister holds an entire box of cereal and keeps it fresh. The kids love being able to dispense their own cereal by just turning the handles. They are even having cereal for snack after school.
We also bought a magnetic knife rack. It hangs over the stove. This should make sure we don't cut ourselves with the knives just being stuck in a drawer. I think it should be safer too since the kids are wanting to help more in the kitchen.
I also bought a magnetic spice rack...I didn't realize it when I bought it but it also came with spices, and I can get free spices for the next 5 years...score!!!!
I bought new canisters (only $15 for the set) left to right: salt, sugar, flour, rice
And we bought a food saver vacuum system. I figured that if we were gonna try to buy food on sale and try to stock up that we should make sure that the food stays good as long as possible. (plus, it's fun to play with...Adreyn thinks it's AWESOME!!!)
Then I spent a few hours yesterday reorganizing my coupons and putting them in a new binder. I have ALOT of coupons!!!
We'll see how all of this works...hmmmmmmmmmm

So, anyone who knows me knows that I've really gotten into using coupons lately. Yes, I am that crazy lady at the grocery store who buys an entire cart full of groceries and then has a large stack of coupons to go along with them. And yes, sometimes scanning the coupons takes longer than scanning the items in the cart. But, lately, I've averaged about a $200 dollar savings every time I go on a big shopping trip. Just recently, we also got dog food for Molly for FREE!!!! I am loving figuring out how all this works and get sooo excited when I can stack coupons and get stuff really cheap if not free. The other day at Kroger just by buying certain items (that I would have bought anyway) I ended up with $17 worth of coupons for money off my next purchase. I'm also SLOWLY learning the CVS game...but that one is time consuming so I'm taking it very slowly!
Here are some pics of my stockpile...I didn't think I really had much of a stockpile until I realized that I had it stocked numerous places LOL
My new freezer (there's still room...I want to buy more bread and milk to put in there..and we are low on hamburger)
Pantry (not even the entire pantry)
Shampoo/conditioner/body wash, hand soap
Toilet paper...this is only about 1/4 of my stock for this (Jason thinks I'm crazy...but we won't run out!)
Our bedroom closet...shampoo and conditioner, meds, deodorant, lotions, body wash, razors etc...
freezer of the fridge/freezer combo in garage (needs to be stocked up actually LOL)
Freezer in the house...packed full!
Fridge in the house
Cheese drawer...can you tell that we like cheese?????
Anyone wanna come over for dinner???? LOL Hope you enjoyed the pics!

So, I've got my new upright freezer filled up! Today we bought Tristan and Rehanyn new beds, bought new twin mattresses for all the kids, and bought a tempurpedic mattress and foundation for our bed! Then we bought Jason a new laptop. Thank God for tax refunds, huh!!! Now to buckle down and get back to couponing and saving money!!!
