She's Back!

It seems like an eternity since I last worked on my own blog and vented through the written language for many unknown readers to hear my plea! Well, I hope to share more for my own benefit and sanity, hopefully!

Much has transpired since I last posted and I will try and do a little update, but life is a dramatic, difficult roller coaster to ride. And sometimes you just have to hold on, with all your might, and pray your seat belt holds you in. And to those few friends and God, I thank you! I have had SO, SO many ups and many, many downs. And been spun all around, I was quite disoriented. I think I have started to face forward now, but my coarse is still a little wobbly. Nothing shakes you more then having to question who you are as a person, what your purpose is, and what you will stand for. And then even more challenging is to stand! I have both feet planted and try to step, ever so lightly forward, with more determination and confidence each day. Simple, subtle prayers are answered with each waking moment, I am a testimant to that!

Now less on the drama and more on the puzzles and fun of money, or lack there over. Over the last 6 months I have tried to understand the world of "COUPONS" and how to work the system better and smarter. Thanks to a great sister-in-law and trial and error. I feel like I am finally starting to get the hang of it. At least I am on the edge of the ice berg.....

This was my trip to Walgreens this week.

I came home with:
6 Soft scrubs @ $4.19/each
2 Soft Scrub Total Bath & Bowl cleaners @ $4.19/each
3 Hydro 3 blade Schick Razors $7.99/each
2 Johnsons Body Care Washes $5.49/each - found on clearance for $2.99/each
4 John Frieda Root Awakening Hair spray $6.99/each
2 John Frieda Root Awakening Detangler $6.99/each
4 EOS Shave Gels $2.99/each
1 Kitchen Scissors $3.99/each - found on clearance for $.99/each
2 Cutters bug spray wipes $5.49/each - found on clearnce for 1.59/each
1 Bite Kids, after bug bite cream $3.99/each - found on clearance for $1.14

I paid $12.47 out of pocket after all said and done!

If you are interested I love the web site
It takes a little time but worth the original price of $141.43!

Hope all is well with everyone! I'd love to hear your feedback!
