Happy Easter!!!



Greatest man in history, named Jesus, had no servants, yet they called him Master. Had no degree, yet they called him Teacher. Had no medicines, yet they called him Healer. He had no army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet he conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him... He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today.  Happy Easter!!

What, When and Where!!!

Every time I go shopping I have someone stop to check out my book, check out what I purchased and they always asked the question, "where do you get your coupons?"   To a couponer that's asking the golden question.   

 It's organization that helps me keep them in tack.  Most "couponers" have there own way of organizing.  I prefer to clip my coupons and store them in my book.   I clip what I know goes on sale or items I know that my family will use.   Anything else I clip and file for others to take.  I found that filing them by the Sunday paper dates wasn't working for me since most stores don't advertise their clearance items.   I would get to the store and see something on clearance and not have a way to get the coupon since it was @ home or better yet not know that I have it to make it a cheaper better deal.   This way, I have my book with me, I see something on sale, well guess what, I now can get it right then and not risk it being gone by the time I came back with the coupon.  This was a way for me to be able to save more money.   I create my shopping list the day before I go so it gives me some time to think about it and make sure I have all the coupons ready.   It takes me about 30 minutes to get my shopping together and pull coupons from my book. 

I started out couponing and using my store layout as a guide.   It was easier for me to be able to find items.  After couponing and seeing other "coupon bibles"  I think doing it by food item would be easier to locate the coupons.   I now am in the process of "revamping" my book to make it easier for me. 

Everyone that uses coupons have different websites different resources for coupons.   I found where I live the best for me is.....  drum roll please......   I get 2 Sunday papers each week, I use Yes I Have a Coupon  which has links on it for coupons my biggest resource is
I Heart Publix   she helps by providing the sales for the week along with the following week so I can see if it's something I need BAD or if I can wait to catch a better deal.    She has resources of coupons that can be printed and used.   In my area our sales run in a 6 week cycle so I know if something is on sale today it won't be on sale again for 6 weeks.   Viola!!   There you have a couponer's golden rule.
Just remember the sites because they are the key to a cheaper shopping experience!!

I'm sitting here this evening just chilling @ home.  Kids are in bed long asleep.  Bryan and I watching
TV.  My friend and her family came over this evening, we, well  she, made dinner.  I hung out.  It's nice every once in a while to be able to do that.  Tomorrow we have Tanner's baseball game.  I don't get to see many during the week.  Not nearly as much as I would like.  However, he said he's going to do his best tomorrow to hit mommy a home run.   Since Bryan is coaching and I will be doing the baseball book, I will get to see 1st hand play by play.  I hope destiny shows my little man he's a good ball player. 
I'm going to do my best to start some spring cleaning and get through some of the things I need to get done at home.  Garage sale, is on the mind....  out with the old stuff and Spring Clean my home.   We will be starting off on Bailey and Tanner's rooms.   Wish me luck!!!   Off for a relaxing and productive weekend!!  Oh and I gotta do some couponing..  lol
