Coupons ROCK!!

So, I know it has been a while since I last blogged....and, I am not going to catch up now, but I felt like writing tonight.

The house is ....quiet. That is a rare occasion. I am the only one awake...another rare occasion. Anyway, I just got back from Kroger and HEB. I am trying to be a better shopper, so I started looking at the ads on Wednesday, going through my coupons on Thursday and Sunday, and shopping on Monday or Tuesday. Today, I got $158.23 in groceries and household items for $100.34. Not too bad! I am going to try to get even better at it. I found a site that you can see what the sales are and what coupons to use. It is www.couponmom.com. I have not figured out the best way to navigate through the site, but I plan to work on it. She is amazing! Also, if you did not clip your own coupons or don't have enough for the deals where you need a certain quantity, you can get them at www.thecouponclippers.com. They usually ship pretty fast, so if you get the circular on the first day out and go through coupons, you can see which ones you need and get them there.

In trying to save money, we switched our electricity provider to Greenmountain energy. They use natural resources like wind and water to provide electricity, which lowers the amount of pollution used to get it. And, it was less expensive than our current provider. Look at that!

In addition, if you have not seen the video clip of charlie on our website, you need to check it out! Neo is starting school next week....second grade! Can you believe that?

My how time goes by so quickly!
