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!

What a day!

1 Jul

Yesterday was a day of all trades! 😀 In the morning for a couple of hours I worked on making cards for a couple of hours. I was tired of my pictures and other supplies just lying around and attacked it with a vengeance. (Looks like my next project should be cleaning my desk!) 😦

For another couple of hours or more, I worked on making tops for towels. That is an easy project that keeps me occupied even when I don’t have much motivation.

(It’s not as complicated as it looks. 🙂 )

In the afternoon, I had to take a break and go to a doctor appointment. There I learned I had lost 8 pounds, which really surprised me. (So that’s why I can get into the dresses I couldn’t wear for a while!) I didn’t think it was a big deal, but the doctor asked me what’s going on? I said, “Stress”.  Her quick  reply was “Do you want something to help with your stress?” The way she said it threw me off for a bit. My simple mind was thinking “What can help my stress besides trusting God?!” Before long, I figured out what she was saying and convinced her it wasn’t that kind of stress. I don’t think pills take stress away anyway, they just help you forget! So I think I will be a little more diligent and make sure I take my enzymes (and try not to worry). It’s so hot around here though, no one feels like eating anyway.

After that stressful ( 🙂 ) break, I went back to sewing towels and got them all finished! (Sigh of Relief) I sat down last night to list them and possibly post on here, which turned into editing pictures and listening to music. Oh well, sometimes there’s more important things in life.

To finish out the day I climbed into bed and started reading my new library book. I meant to read only for 30 minutes or so but the book was so captivating all of a sudden I realized I read about half of it. I will tell you more about the book, when I have read all of it.

I hope you have a great day! God Loves You!

ps. Yesterday was a good day for me! I love variety. 😉
