This is a trend I am seeing all over the internet from my creative BLOG “friends”. Taking something and re-purposing it for yorself…morphing it into something new. I love this! So I did it.

A coat of black paint, well several coats actually and we were in business. Well, the best part was the dresser I scored for $35 at my local consignment shop to replace the change table in her room.

Ok so I am truly inspired after watching TLC’s {EXTREME Couponing} Season Premiere on Wednesday Night. I spent the day making my “Special Coupon Binder”.

The key is collecting the coupon circulars in the Sunday Paper and filing them by date. Then when the store sale ad comes out go to couponmom.com and look under sales by state. Find your grocery store of choice and see which coupons of which weeks can be matched with the store’s sale ad for maximun savings. Ingles doubles coupons up to $50 and Bi-Lo up to $60. My friend went this week and checked out with a total of $75 before store sale and coupons. She only paid $13.00!!!!! I am so excited! It will be like my own little challenge to see how well I can save. I am going to start out getting 3 Sunday Papers a week.
