I just updated the site with a fantastic listing of blogs, look down on the lower right side of this Blog, just scroll down. Printing out coupons from these and other web sites will allow you to save a monumental amount of money! I have even gotten several items for free by using all of my resources. Just click on the most updated resources to see how to do the deals. I love this because I can have them do the work, and I can use all of their great resources. They even link to the printable coupons. It is like printing money and it is free!

Sorry for not posting in a while, but I have been busy with the newest addition to our family, Zoe. Zoe was born in June this year and is our best reason for couponing and saving money. Zoe goes through a lot of diapers, so links to great $3 off diapers are great. On these sites they will show you how you can combine that with rebates and other great deals that are out their as well.

Rite Aid currently has some outspoken deals where you can get many items free or you can even make a profit on them if you do it right. They are prominently listed in their ad and on their web site. Just go and check them out to save tons!

Another short tip is to look for short term specials. Many of the stores have short sales. Like today and tomorrow at Vons they have pumpkins 2 for the price of one and a few other fantastic deals. Soup for 60 cents a can, that you can also use the $1/2 cans from the Campbels web site. Remember too, always look for in store sales. Stores will often have a clearance area. If they have an on site bakery also make sure to check out the day old section. If the bread they made yesterday was not sold yesterday a lot of times you can get it at a great discount. I always shop this section. What I do is freeze whatever I buy as soon as I get home from the store. So I often end up with six great rolls for under $1. These are the bakery fresh rolls, so they are great for sandwiches and other uses and they are dirt cheap!

Annual Learning Disabilities Conference

This is a great inexpensive conference that features two renowned speakers, William R. Jenson, Ph.D. andLawrence Diller, M.D.. According to the conference web site, "Dr. Jenson, Ph.D. has worked for many years with behaviorally disordered children. Dr. Jenson is currently Professor and Chair of the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Utah . For the past 15 years, he has been an active staff development presenter and consultant for many school districts, mental health centers, and parent organizations. He is probably best known for coauthoring The Tough Kid Book and The Tough Kid Tool Box . " and "Dr. Diller, M.D . is a behavioral/developmental pediatrician in Walnut Creek , CA and on the clinical faculty of the University of California , San Francisco . Dr. Diller is the author of many professional articles and the books, Running on Ritalin and The Last Normal Child.

The cost for the conference is $45 for regular preadmission and $15 for students with proof of enrollment. Lots of instructors will also be giving extra credit for students to attend this great conference. This also includes food and drinks in the morning and a great Mexican buffet lunch! This is a great bargain! Some professional units are also available, see the web site for more information. Hope to see you at this great conference.
