Couponing and Other Things

26 Jul

I enjoy getting good deals, but I am not an “extreme couponer” as it’s little difficult here since we live so far away from the stores. You can’t just run in and pick up a few little items when there is great prices. I do try to save some coupons though and today I had fun getting a few great deals! It is very exciting to go to CVS and the receipt says “Today You Saved: $20.33!! Wow. I only spent $12.40 plus I got $3.99 ECB. I wasn’t expecting the savings to be that high, but I found a pack of Emergen-C for 75% off.

For help with couponing and frugal living ideas, I enjoy following the Money Saving Mom blog. I also like the lists that My Frugal Adventures does for shopping at CVS. They are a BIG help!

We also went to Target this afternoon. My bill there wasn’t as good, but still got some deals. My sis-in-law got two pillows for .50 each! That was definitely worth it.

I was a little nervous about planning a coupon shopping trip when I still don’t feel that great. It’s hard enough to think through deals with a clear head! But everything went well. I do feel completely exhausted now. The 107 degrees didn’t help much. I hope to rest up the rest of the week. At least part of the week. We do have plans for helping make freezer jam, putting up sweet corn, and sewing school uniform jumpers sometime this week!

I saw one of my doctors today, but he didn’t really comment on how I am doing. He just oversees my IVIG. I did get a report from my Pulmonologist on Monday that my chest x-ray shows no new issues. That was very good news! So now I am hoping to soon feel normal again… To be able to do simple tasks without becoming exhausted… I always forget how long it takes to get well again… Then I get to this stage where I am tempted to become impatient. So just now I am trying to focus on counting my blessings instead of the “I wishes”.

I didn’t get my Something to Think On post for today up yet, but I hope to do that soon. I hope you have a blessed week!
