Yesterday Ingard and I headed out to use our  Albertsons twice the value coupons.  But once in the store were found a lot of empty shelves.  The Christmas music was jamming to “keep our spirits bright” and we were determined to find some thrifty deal.  I was having fun dancing up and down the isles looking for the best way to use my coupons. When I decided to show Ingard  my new “friend” I bought this weekend, it is called a Revlon Twirl-Ups.   It made her laugh out loud… I hope it makes you smile too :)

If you can not see the video above you can watch it on our A Thrifty Mom YouTube channel.

 Thought I would re-post this How To Make a TuTu video for those of you looking for a Frugal Halloween idea.

How to make a tutu, easy DIY Halloween costumes, #Tutu, #DressUpClothes

With Halloween just around the corner and the idea of being thrifty still nagging at your shoe strings, what should you do? Well one idea is what our little Maleeya came up with last Halloween was an “evil princess”. So we made some cute pom pom hair clips and a super easy wrap around Tutu that just took a few minutes to make! You can even order the Tulle online and get it shipped right to your door.

I wanted to alert you that TONIGHT, December 29th, at 8pm (eastern), Nathan Engels (MrCoupon) or Nathan Engles (they misspelled his name) along with three other people will be featured on TLC Extreme Couponing and you bet we will be watching it. Extreme Couponers are what many non-couponers call us and it will be fun to see how they portray those who love to live Thrifty by using coupons. We hope that it is positive, but whatever the outcome our goal continues to be one that inspires people to use coupons!

We may be a little ‘extreme’ but our desire and hope is for families that need to save money will check out couponing!!!

Nathan wanted to hint towards something that he built, that was about 15 feet tall!! They filmed it’s creation and it was almost entirely donated to local foodbanks! TLC also filmed the giving aspect of couponing!! During this episode they donated around $6000-$7000 in product to a fantastic pantry!!! (they shared this not to brag, but to lead by example, giving is such an amazing aspect of couponing!!!)

So check out TLC Extreme Couponing on The Learning Channel at 8pm TONIGHT.
