Each voucher is redeemable at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington for two (2) tickets up to an upper box value each for 2009 regular season home games.

Brookshires Matchups and deals for 6/3-6/9

Coupons Acceptance Policy: What to know before bringing in coupons...

The cashier will ensure that each coupon they accept complies with the rules printed on the coupon.
All coupons must have a barcode and will be scanned.
Doubling and tripling of coupons will be offered on a store by store basis as determined by Brookshire Grocery Co.
Internet coupons may be accepted up to $1.99 in value per coupon. No “free item” or bulk internet coupons will be accepted.
Management has the right to refuse any coupon they have reason to believe is counterfeit.

My Brookshire's does not double and triple coupons on a regular basis so I will not post doubles and triples. (Although, if I drive 20 minutes to the next closest Brookshire's they do almost all the time.)

All ad prices effective with your Brookshire's Thank You Card.
I try my best to match as many coupons as possible but if I miss some, I apologize. Also, seeing how I've just starting listing them like this, I do not have the SS, RP details, but will have the internet printable match-ups.

Colgate savings

Finding the time to make it all fit

How do all of you ladies out there do it? I have such a hard time balancing everything. I have a tendency to go head first into something but then other things suffer.

I have so many great coupon/money saving blogs (you can find of them listed in my blogroll) that I visit everyday that it's hard for me to keep this one up to par with theirs. I think 'what in the world do I have to say that everyone else has not'? 'What would make mine special or different'? It's a tough question for myself to answer.

Not only that but I've been trying to get back on track with my weight loss. I started about a year ago and was able to lose 62 lbs by Halloween. Then the holidays hit and I totally went off my daily meal plan (that I had made for myself, not something premade by a diet company) and left my exercise by the wayside. Now I've gained back 20 lbs and am really kicking myself. Today I've kind of decided to really get back into the swing of things and have started to track my food again using the website Spark People. Now to get off my butt to exercise. I also help run a group on SP called 'Crochet the Pounds Away'.

I'm a stay at home mom so I do feel it's my job to try save as much money as I can for my household while my husband works so hard to bring the money into the house.

So...blogging, weight loss, researching money savings and coupons, running the challenges for a weight loss group, kids out of school at the end of the week (15 yob, 10 yob, almost 18 yob, almost 19 yog), my son's high school graduation on the weekend......phew! Where do you all find the time????

I will wait for your input while I pull my hair out!!
