    Hi Everyone!!!

    I would have posted this earlier but yesterday when I went to hit the post button...the power went off!!! Damn those rolling blackouts!

    So I'm praying it doesn't happen again because I can't wait to tell you all about it!!!

    Started off on Friday!!

    Canadian Tire....walked in...got the $2 garbage bags on sale....got free Armoral and paid half of my bill with Canadian Tire money!!!! Nothing beats garbage bags for a buck!!

    That afternoon my son's school did an Autism walk to support his walk and they raised $208!!!

    Saturday was funny...at least for me! Picked Mom up for church and after church Mom says we have to stop at Canadian Tire to get her free Armoral. She hadn't checked her barcode and I didn't have a flashlight with me. So she sat in the car with my little man while I ran to the garden centre. I asked the cashier if I could just do the no purchase nessesary because I figured it was the Armoral. She was so excited (she must have not had many customers.) She scratched and I got $5!!! She told me to run in and grab something. So naturally like a good smart canucker I got to the clearance section. There was strawberry plants (I always wanted one) for $5! Grabbed one and brought it back. She scanned it in and it came up as $2!!! I was in shock!! I grabbed another two and walked away with 3 plants (originally $8.99) for $1.78!!!

    Sunday morning was the big Walk Now for Autism Speaks walk downtown in Toronto!!! I want to thank my parents, hubby, my son, and the Big Pink for helping me out this year. We raised over $2000 for Autism Speaks and I'm happy to say that couponing helped us tremendously raising money!! Also thanks to those SC'rs who donated directly!! You guys are so amazing!!! I put my son's grand club shirt in the photo as he raised over $1000!!! He even gave up birthday presents to help out!!! I love him so much!!

    So Dad and my hubby both got Strawberry plants for Father's day on top of having a great dinner and a wonderful day at the walk!!

    Now that all this has happened I have an empty fridge at this point. I grabbed my hidden jar of FPC's and grabbed a whole bunch of them!! Off to Metro I go!!!

    I got:
    Natrel Milk $5.49
    Steak $11.57 - $4 rip and stick = $7.57 (3 bonus airmiles)
    2x Strawberries (plants haven't grown that fast...lol) 2/$5 (3 bonus airmiles)
    2x Frozen Spinach $1.69 (3 bonus airmiles)
    3x Maple Leaf Prime Stuffed Chicken (thanks ssbean for the coupons) $8.99 - 3x $5 = $3.99 each ( 3 bonus airmiles for each pack)
    Black Diamond Cheese slices $2.99 - $0.75= $2.24
    Silk milk $3.99 - FPC = free (2 bonus airmiles)
    2x Oasis Health Break $2.99 each - 2x FPC = free (2 bonus airmiles)
    2x Mini Wheats little bites $2.99 each - 2x FPC = free (with breakfast pins...whoohoo!)
    Lindt Chocolate $2.99 - FPC = free including tax
    Glade Expressions air spray $4.49 - FPC = free including tax
    Glade Expressions oil thingy $7.99 - FPC = free including tax
    2x Rice Krispies Gluten Free $5.49 each - 2x FPC = free
    Dr. Oetker Mousse $1.67 - FPC = free
    Tetley Tea $4.99 - FPC = free
    Danone Yogurt $2.49 - FPC = free
    Nortica Cottage Cheese $3.49 - FPC = free
    Total $35.65
    Minus 95 airmiles for $10 airmiles cash
    Minus 2x $10 gift cards from stouffers/lean cuisine
    Minus $5.65 off a third gift card from stouffers/lean cuisine
    Paid $0!!!!!!!
    I saved $110.44 in total!!!
    Plus I had a bonus coupons if I spent $50 or more I got 25 bonus airmiles!!! I ended up getting 5 regular and 47 bonus!!! Sweet!!!!

    So with all these savings I feel like shouting from the car window.....

    (Please sing-a-long to Tom Petty's Free Falling)

    I'm a good girl, love my mama
    Love coupons and smart canucks too
    I'm a good girl, is crazy 'bout airmiles
    Loves saving and her husband too


    It's a long day shoppin' at the Metro
    Bonus airmiles runnin' through the store
    And I'm a bad girl 'cos I don't ever miss them
    I'm a bad girl for getting them all free


    And I'm free, free shoppin'
    Yeah I'm free, free shoppin'
