Now....brace yourself. The level of excitement might just get your adrenaline pumping, and I am not going to be held responsible for any medical intervention that may be needed to calm you. Remember, G-man is at work, so it is just me once the kids go to bed.
Earlier in the day on Saturday......
Clear out expired coupons. Such a shame.....I would send them to a military base overseas if I knew how. Someone enlighten me. Look at all that waste.
7:00pm - dishes
Clean sink. Not as shiny as FlyLady would want, but I will take what I can get. The dishes are done (and we don't have a dishwasher!!)
7:15 - start the couponing process
See...I have a TON of unsorted coupons (including a big pack that Mom sent me). If I am going to go grocery shopping, I need to sort them.
Lay out my rudimentary system (I am in the process of changing this over to a binder system, but I am not there yet).
Look, the pile is getting a little smaller.
8:00pm - Ok, now we are up to the coupons that still need to be clipped.
Wee people are in bed, and I am trying to rewatch season 5 of Lost before the season premier on Tuesday. So I sit at my computer and watch it on Hulu.com and clip clip clip. I jump up during the "commercial" of 30 seconds and continue to sort.
9:30pm. I am bored with this.
Got most of it sorted. Pack it up and call it a day.
I am happy to report that my savings at the grocery store was about 37% (about $90) with coupons and store card. We had nothing, so it was one of those "have to buy everything" shopping trips. Oh well. I tried. You hard core coupon people are my heroes.
