TGIP

Thank God for Friday.. but more importantly.. it's payday. Is it sad that I'm excited to put gas in the truck and go to the grocery store tonight?

I had the Amazon clip coupons for me yesterday and go through our two (count'em.. TWO) coupon wallet thingies. I get a little giddy with excitement at the prospect of doing the weekly hunting and gathering. It's a challenge, a game almost, using the coupons I have with the sale paper to see what kind of deal I can finagle. I don't think it would matter if I had plenty of money to spend, I'd still get a rush from a good deal.

I get alot of strange looks from Ma while putting groceries away. She rolls her eyes when I hold up a bag of Chex mix and proceed to excitedly explain how I got it for only nine cents.

Anywho, plans for the weekend include some laundry, some scrubbing and tackling some creative endeavors. We're supposed to have thunder boomers for the duration, so it's a pretty safe bet there'll be some nappy time in there too.

Ya'll hang in there.

Later Taters.

Okay, you gotta teach me how to do the coupon thing. I have a total of $100 for food until the next payday on the 1st. So c'mon, lay it on me. Do I buy a Sunday paper and start clipping away?

A primer on coupon cliping would rock.

Mmm, naps. One of my favorite things EVAR.

Nappy time rocks my world. And yes.. I realize that the fact that I used to fantasize about sexy, bare chested men and now day dream about curling up for a nap with my teddy bear and a blankie.. to be a sad reflection on the state of my life in general lol.

A nap during a thunderstorm sounds perfect!

I'm going to have to pay close attention to your coupon clipping review. I've never been good about coupons except to grab the handful of weekly deals for the local grocery store. I never seem to have more than 5 coupons.

My mom's great at the coupon thing, but I apparently didn't inherit that gene. *g*

Apparently it skips a generation. Ma comes out of there lookin' like one of the Trumps.

I'm broke too and PD is a week away. I'll think about you doing the domestic goddess thing while I'm at the sawmill this weekend :)

I LOVE clipping coupons! I have no doubt that even if I won the lottery tomorrow, I would still be clipping away the next day. My personal best was getting $74 off my grocery bill one week using them; you just can't beat that sense of satisfaction!

Mahala said...

Goodgawdawmighty!!! $74??? You have me beat by a mile lol.

My daughter's quite the little "Coupon clipper" here - cuts them out of the papers regularly, files them away and like I used to do -I think -all too often, forgets she has this or that coupon for stuff. Me, now I just rely on getting a couple things we need on Wednesday when the local grocery store gives a 5 percent discount on all but the damned nicotine! Wouldn't you just know it though!

Um, my daughter goes back to school Sunday afternoon so I just can't engage in any of those domestic duties you speak of. Maybe later in the week. Yeah, that's the ticket.

I'm terrible with coupons - I forget to bring them, they expire, I get annoyed and just don't bother. Then I feel guilty and spendy so I try again - one time I got so frustrated I just left the store.

I'm such a dweeb!

Happy napping.

I suppose I should cut coupons but living alone I hardly ever grocery shop these days.

I'd rather nap. :-) Enjoy your weekend. Check out my newest addition to the family on my blog.

Ain't she sweet?

Oh and the puppy too...
