Wylie Mom's Weekly Recap-Week 10

Here's how last week turned out for me.

Savings - $76.74

- $2.00 eBay coupon, I got poly bags for shipping clothes.
- $1.00 Redbox, free Monday promo code
- $31.88 at CVS, Target and Staples
- $41.86 at Kroger

eBay Sales - $83.76 (all store sales since no auctions were listed week 9)

Misc. Income - $1.00 (Dollar Surveys)

And here's my big money saving story!!! I started at MyPoints and was lead to NetQuote. I was searching for new auto insurance. I figured we had 2 different cars since we last shopped around. Plus, I am no longer driving to work. But, getting an insurance quote does do a hard pull on your credit.

NetQuote was super fast! I had at least 4 quotes e-mailed to me within 15 minutes. I changed back to Geico and will be saving....okay this is the embarrassing part, $1071.20 a year!!! Why didn't I do this sooner? Yay me! I am very excited about the savings! I won't add it to the weekly number, but I will add it to my yearly impact number. Also, I'll get 5000 points from MyPoints for switching. With MyPoints you cash in points for gift cards and 5000 will get you about $35 worth.

Weekly Impact - $161.50
Yearly Impact - $4167.07

I listed 21 new items on eBay, requested samples and clipped coupons and cleaned out my coupon binder. In addition to receiving fun samples in the mail, I got a new product to try on my son (I'll be paid $5 upon completion) and I got super cute hoodie and mouse pad from Mr. Rebates. Yay!

Any deals to share for a great week? Email me at Thanks!
