Happy New Year!! 2013!!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, I know..........I'm a little late with the Happy new year, but I have pretty good reason to be. At least I THINK I do! LOL!! Boy, our new year's started off with a bang let me tell ya. My youngest, Rachel, got strep throat on New Year's Eve and so we ended up at the Express Care at the hospital that evening......isn't that where EVERYONE wants to spend some of their New year's eve??!! Nah, I didn't think so, but, we did.........thankfully the pharmacy where get our scripts was open til 9 that evening too, so we were able to get Rachel's meds so she could be on her road to recovery. Well, she did finally recover....thank the Lord!! Both of my girls have had a pretty good start otherwise to this near year.........they both enjoy playing outside in the snow, but the little peanut pie (Rachel) still gets upset when older sister Julie hits her with snowballs! Ah.....she'll learn one of these days that she can, and is encouraged, to get her sister back with more snowballs!! lol!! I have been having a fairly good start to the new year as well. I have been trying to be more organized with things around the house and I have also started on the road to savings using coupons! Here is a picture of ONE of my good deals! Total before coupons and store reward savings was $110!! (there were just a couple things not pictured) After store reward savings and coupons..............drumroll please!!!! $62!!!! Not too bad I didn't think for my second time of using coupons!! This also included a beef roast and some beef tips for stew that are kind of in view behind the chicken noodle soups! I keep collecting coupons and keep trying to find on sale and/or clearance items to use my coupons on to get better deals......we'll see how that goes!! Stay tuned!! For now, this is about all I have.....hope to be a better blogger this year! Thanks for keeping up with me! Lisa
