"Sunday Favorites"

Hi Everyone! Welcome to "Sunday Favorites". Our Charming Hostess is Chari at Happy to Design. Chari's blog is so lovely and filled with beautiful pictures of her decorating. I encourage you to spend a little time looking around.

This week's Sunday Favorite is a post from March 18, 2009. I just thought a little "Thrifty" humor would give you a smile this week!

I snagged this cute little cartoon from Sherry...thanks Sherry :)

Today's Maxine-ism:

Some people shop at several
grocery stores to save money.
I do it to make a meal out
of free samples.

  1. Haha...I have to send this to my daughter, who is the most naturally thrifty person I know! My friends were envious; when Alida was a teen she'd say things like, "No, Mom, don't get that for me! It is too expensive. . . "

    She HAS done this with samples at the warehouse stores, like Costco. So funny.

  2. The cartoon is a hoot! I was thinking that you could make a meal out of all the samples given out when I was at Sams the other day!


  3. We all love Maxine don't we? The girl speaks the truth. Can I get a woot woot for Maxine. Alright.

  4. I would like to add that although I try my best to save a buck when I can I live in Canada and our options are fewer than yours. I shop in the US at least once a year and tell my friends "in Canada a sale is 10% off and in the US a sale is 70% off. That is almost unheard of here.
    Double coupon days? Nah, not here. I'll keep trying.
