Trying to save money

You know, i've been trying to get on the "frugal" train for a bit. I joined a couple of things to see where I can become frugal, and save money. I have 4 kids, and they're going to start the college thing soon, one right after I want to help them as much as I can. I've been playing the "grocery game" for a couple of weeks now. And I want to be frugal in my scrapbooking as well. So I just bought about 300 sheets of paper off of ebay for $40, I'm figuring i'm saving a couple hundred by doing So now, I want to use all of the stuff that's in my scraproom before I buy one more thing. I have enough stuff to make layouts for the next year, and I need to use it.
For the last couple of weeks, I have been taking the 40% off coupon from Michaels, out of the paper, and going and getting me one bottle of Prima flowers. After the coupon, they're only costing me less than $5 each, which is great! So now i'm up to 4 new bottles. I love prima's, and try to put them in every layout. : )

So, I want to see what I can come up with, by just using what I have, and not buying anything for at least the rest of the year....I want to see how much $ I can save all together...hehehe.
I'm going to have to get imaginative with these layouts...

Wish me luck!
