Starting up is hard to do

12 January 2010
We started this blog with such good intentions. But it's cold! We're talking C O L D! We live in FL. It's never supposed to be this cold this long. To be honest, we just haven't felt much like shopping. We did do 6 or 7 Chips Ahoy deals at Walgreens and used some of those RR's for newspapers, tp and milk. And we sent Little Lord Parsimony to Publix for a few end-of-sale eatables. We had planned on making the rounds today, but it got to be mid-afternoon and we thought about how long it would take... dusk would surely descend upon us before we got home. We are ill-prepared for freezing temperatures at sunset. Tomorrow is another day. If we can get an earlier start, we should be able to catch up a bit.

In the meantime, we've been putting together our coupon binder. This is going to make things so much easier for us. We've been juggling envelopes and trying to keep track of which coupons we're actually using each trip. We already had most of our needs on hand and we found the best price on the rest on eBay. We're just waiting on one final element to complete the system. Then we'll post pictures.

God bless your budget!
Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^


About Me

My photo
I'm a native-born Florida Cracker, graduated Christian home schooling mom/teacher, jill of all trades and mistress of none. Rising prices and dwindling assets pushed me over the edge from casual to extreme couponing. In the first quarter of 2010, we cut our grocery budget from $1600+/- to $300! I always thought all those 'coupon queen' stories weren't for average people like me. Was I ever wrong! Just jump in and start clipping. Check out some of the super savers in my blog list. Honestly, I know you've heard this before, but REALLY, if I can do it, ANYBODY can!
