Return to Blogging
School is out now and I really hope to keep this up a bit better. As I sit here today there is a gentle rain coming down so I am naturally forced inside today. My flowers will get a drink and I will get to focus on the inside of the house.
I have many projects that I want to work through this summer. A few have already been accomplished and today I should knock off a few more. We are getting ready for vacation soon. Can I just tell the world how very excited I am about this year's vacation? This is HUGE to me after what we went through last summer and I plan to soak up every possible bit of joy there is to be had.
We will be going to gorgeous area in Massachusetts. I have never been to that state, so I will add another one or two on my list. I need to learn how to spell it though since I am going there. (thank goodness for spell check) We will focus on mostly scenic, outdoor activities, and just relax!
I am taking an unofficial break from crazy couponing. I will still buy the papers if I think they will benefit me, but I have a huge stockpile now and I do not want the stockpile to outlive my family. There is just so much toothpaste one can use. Actually it is time to thin it out and give a goodie box to someone in need. I just do not feel the need to chase every bargain. We will live out of our freezer, pantry, and stockpile for a while. My grocery bills over the last month have been quite small because of all of this and that excites me. This way of shopping really pays off. I am sure I will take advantage of the super deals out there, I made $8.00 this week at Walgreen's and I won't stop doing those deals (Ecotrin aspirin, I bought 4 boxes with coupons that made them free, then got back $2.00 on each in register rewards--I paid a total of 8 cents and made back $8.00) I just am slowing way down for a while. Don't worry, I am not going back to my old ways. I will return in full force later on. I am too good at this to stop. Ha.
More posting to come so check back more often.
