But seriously, back to the coupon thing- I spent the better part of yesterday printing, cutting, sorting and arranging coupons. Please, save me the Sweet Brown "Ain't nobody got time fo dat" speech. I got myself a shoebox from the dollar tree (addicted to that store- but with a purpose!) and I made 40 envelopes out of scrapbooking paper. Since I have massive hoards of that sitting around, I count what I did was "free" minus the $1.10 I paid for the box. Wait, .10? Yeah. taxes. Have to count those suckers in.
AAAANYwho, last Tuesday or so I went through all of my local grocery lists, and decided what I was going to get within our budget. I have a set budget for both the 1st and the 15th. Since I spent a few hours yesterday getting the coupons ready and today I'll be getting about 6 news papers (no, I'm not kidding!) to also cut the coupons out- and I'll be putting the newspaper to good use too, I have to start my seedlings- I'll be filing them before I do my grocery shopping today.

What coupons did you clip this week? Oh, and don't freak out at the time I spent. It's worth it to me to save my large family lots of money to get the things we want or may need in the future.
