Coupons and whatnot!

Wow, where does time go…
As I look back on my prior blogs, it seems like I haven’t been here in like months, then it skips to a year prior…so to get everyone up to speed, I originally started out working for 2 attorneys, due to the alignment I was then assigned 2 more attorneys and now I have been assigned a 5th attorney due to my efficiency…WTH??? Yes, my thoughts exactly, anyways I thought I would let you know what I’ve been up to. I think I now am addicted to couponing. I have gotten my self a big binder, (one that was going to be recycled at work) so I didn’t have to purchase it, next I got myself some baseball card inserts and now I’m in the process of doing my coupons. I need yet to get a printer to hook up to my older than a dinosaur computer at home, so it will be compatible and I can utilize all the coupon websites. I can access them at work, but since we are on a secure server, no downloading is allowed on my computer unless it is a corporate generated download. Anywho, so until I find myself in the land of the “advanced computer techies” will just purchase 4 papers every Sunday to get me started on a smaller scale. So that is where I am, I’m organizing my new found coupon binder.
I still am making my own laundry detergent and its hard to believe that I have been doing this for at least 3 years now, and I really notice the extra money that is being saved. I now am religiously putting money into the savings account on a weekly basis to get a cushion established for Xmas gifts. We have been doing a lot of home projects to keep costs down of hiring people to do same, wherein we can do for a much cheaper price. Next thing on the house list is to get cabinets for our kitchen, so hopefully by the beginning of the year, we will have a lil cushion of money put aside with my tax return and bonus to get everything under way. There is so much that we want to do and well its our house so we can take our time. Hope everyone is having a great day, as I am now turning over a new leaf, I am pushing the unwanted “stress” out of my life, not listening or being brought into drama, and relaxing, relating and releasing….*thanks Patty*.
