Nowadays I feel like a juggling act. Part mom, part business women, part blogger, part maid. Life is crazy, life is complicated, but life is good and I am blessed (I try to repeat that last part often... a daily reminder keeps me sane).
I always feel like I have a ton of things to blog about. Then I sit down to write a blog and my mind goes BLANK! I hate when that happens.
I guess I will blog about my coupon obsession. Yes, I am a crazy coupon lady. I started cutting coupons when I was pregnant and on average I save about $100 per week! Now I can't go back. If I go to Publix without my coupons I feel naked. Pathetic, I know.
I went to Whole Foods last week. I wanted to grab a quick bite to eat at the hot bar. I was attempting to eat healthy but I ended up with a nice scoop of spicy mac n' cheese. It was so good. While I had dinner, I watched all of the women shopping. I was so envious of the women in there. They just walked down the aisles and threw stuff into their carts. $7 orange juice, no biggie! Obviously no coupons, no price comparison, they just bought whatever they desired. That would be nice!
For now I shall cut coupons. The hardest part about cutting coupons is the time it takes to cut and organize them. I have tried a few different methods of organization. I started out with envelopes. That was a disaster and a complete mess in my drawer. Then I bought a special coupon book on Amazon. It is $19.99 and in my opinion it is well worth it. I loved the book and the only real issue I had with it was the fact that you couldn't really see the coupons in the folders and it was pretty thick to put in my purse. Recently I started carrying a backpack instead of a purse (I will blog about that another day) so I wanted to try a new coupon organization method that was the size of a school binder. I think I found my perfect match!!! It was at Target. It is the Mead OrganizHer (clever name) Coupon Binder. Confession- I purchased two because I wanted extra tabs and organizing sheets. I am going to combine all of the organization sheets and tabs in one binder and have it super organized. If you cut coupons or are thinking about starting, you NEED this!
After I finish organizing my new binder I will post photos. I am in organize mode at our house right now. I want to start posting my new Project Organization undertaking on the blog. Hope you enjoy!
FYI- Do you want to save some serious mula? My favorite website that helps me find all of the good deals is Southern Savers. Every women out there should check out this page. I promise, it makes couponing so much easier!
And I will leave you with some Photo Booth pictures:
