Being a mom is the greatest accomplishment of my life. And I am SO proud of it. But somewhere along the way, I seem to have forgotten who I am and what my interests are. I am MORE THAN A MOM. I love being a mom, and a wife, but I need to have some room to just be ME - without any titles. I look forward to when I can go back to being an elementary school teacher, when my youngest starts full time school. I think in order for me to be the best MOM and the best WIFE I can be, I have to just be the best ME - whoever that is.
Last week while grocery shopping, Wholly Guacamole was marked down to 10/$10. Since they didn't have any, I got a rain check. Guess what I found when I opened my Sunday paper coupons today? A coupon for $1 off Wholly Guacamole. And since I have 2 papers, I'll certainly get 2 FREE packs of Wholly Guacamole. Yum.
One of my resolutions is to save at least 30% on each grocery bill this year. Last week, my savings was 28%. I didn't hit my 30% mark, but that's not too bad, especially since I forgot to print out all the newly stocked coupons. I'm pretty sure I would have hit 30%, had I remembered those online coupons. Maybe next time. But I did get a FREE Pediasure and a FREE Kikkoman soy sauce. That's good, right?
A penny saved is a penny earned, and a penny earned is a penny earned! You Data helps me collect a few cents every week or so. So far this week I have collected $.20 to be directly deposited into my paypal account. It's only a few cents, but every bit helps.
I signed up for a free sample of Teekanne tea. I've been trying to cut back on the caffeine lately, and I think it comes decaf. Whew. Thanks Coupon Geek.
