Lil Change in my Pocket

I have had a week.
- - - - -
No seriously, I feel so OFF my GAME.
- - - - -
Sadly, I am not even sure why. I feel like I have taken on too much and yet not really done enough to make me feel that way.
- - - - -
Like yesterday, BOTH times I checked the MAILBOX, it was STILL Veterans Day.
- - - - -
I must need to make more lists. Yes a list will help...hopefully.
- - - - -
It's the things that get thrown into my week that make me feel crazy. Like yesterday, Madysen was beat up at school. Literally punched and kicked on the ground crying. Did I get a call from the school? Nope.
- - - - -
That one really threw me off. I feel like I really am behind on my Christmas shopping even though I am not. Probably cuz I have a 30% off at Kohl's and I haven't bought the whole store.
- - - - -
Just little things seem to be really throwing me off. Today, I start fresh. Cleaning house, bringing out the Snowman dishes, washing flannel sheets and listening to my Christmas music. Ahhh nothing a little Christmas music can't fix.
- - - - -
Two nights ago, I had a most joyous occasion, in the midst of my weird and ridiculous week. I am not posting about it to brag, but rather inspire. (Promise :) For those of you who have only stuck a toe in the water of couponing, or those who think its really not doable, try again. THIS WAS MY MOST AMAZING TRIP EVER! Just look...
- - - - -
With Thanksgiving coming up so soon there are TONS of GREAT grocery sales going on and I figured I had better take advantage!
- - - - -
I bought ALL this...
Propel, soups, bread, pasta....a BUTTERBALL turkey (can't wait to eat this mmmm)
Stuffing, grapes, broth...
Chips yogurt...seemed to go on and on!
Practically filled my entire table!!
- - - - -
I was just as stunned as anyone. I always try and figure out about where my bill should be, but in my mind I was going to spend about 7 dollars. So when I was walking out and the girl handed me my receipt PLUS 90 cents back, I seriously couldn't BELIEVE it.
- - - - -
- - - - - -
This was actually the FIRST time they have ever PAID ME to take groceries from them haha. I usually feel amazing about being under ten dollars, but this was WAY more fun.
- - - - -
If you don't believe in coupons, or think it just takes too much GOTTA try again! As always, let me know if you need any help!
- - - - -
Have a WONDERFUL weekend! I can hardly wait!

Love, ME

Amazing shopping! Matthew told me about the fight! I couldn't believe it but I was sure they would have called you. Definitely not okay! Hope today is better!

I still want to punch you for this:) I was with her to witness it people...and it was as shocking as you are imagining. I bought a gallon of milk ONLY...and spent $2.85 more than her.

I am with you on the holiday rush (and crazy traffic) making you feel late and behind! We've got some amazing deals this week though! wahoo

That is awesome! I get the newspapers so I have coupons can you tell me what you used to get this awesome deal.

Poor Madysen! Good grief, they should have called.

But holy moly girl! The shopping is awesome. Gotta get my rear in gear so that I can get paid to shop, too. ;)
