I Love Coupons....
Wednesday, January 25, 2012
Good Hump Day Sparkfam!! Its a chilly day here in Chicago but at the same time & I thankful its not our usual blustery 19degrees outside. WHEW! Its a quiet day here around the office so I decided to get a blog in. Had some fun times this week & thought I would share them with you......
Sunday I went to Walmart after church, I keep the coupons I use not just keep googobs of them in my purse for no reason. I don't know how people save like $100 on stuff? I want to save a $100 on stuff I use everyday not stock pile it. So I bought some Secret Mystic Melon which is a gel but it hangs with me. So it was $3.97. I dug deep in my purse to find the coupon but it was a no go. I went home, looked in my purse & found 2coupons which expire this weekend. I had to buy the deodorant & an oil of olay beauty bar to save $3.00. Guess what? My hubby went to Walmart & spent $12.99 on Tide. While I had $2.00 off coupon for that. So I took both items back to Walmart after work & I had an errand that was in that direction. Not gonna waste gas for $5.00. So I went in, got my beauty bar went to the register to return them (yeap return the items) then repurchased them. Most stores except Jewel will honor coupons as long as you have your receipt & the coupon is NOT expired. Well Walmart you have to use the coupons while you at the register or you have to bring the items back to the store. I peep their game a long time ago so I was ready. The cashier thought I was nutz but you know what? I saved $5.00 on 3items. Once I bought the deodorant & beauty bar, I paid $4.11. I PAID $4.24 for the deodorant by itself!! SERIOUSLY!! Now those are the kind of coupons I think that are worth having. I will have that deodorant for 6-7weeks so hopefully another coupon will be up soon. lol Yeah I know I get kinda crazy when I get my coupons out & people hate to see me when I pull them out but I don't care. If you shop & get in line you wouldn't have this problem. So wait your turn, okay! That means you too! lol
I made chicken breast & the meat was so tender made my hubby want to slap his momma. Well he can't smack mine she deceased but we still find humor with one another. We got into a heated debate on Sunday evening & went to bed without talking, He got up the next morning complaining that the water wasn't HOT??? Well did you check the electric water heater? No but I will. He couldn't find anything wrong with it so he left for work. So I went to get ready & water was smokin HOT! He asked me if the water was still cold? I told him no. He was like I wonder why it was cold for me? Well I told him that the Lord saw he was messing with me & that was his punishment. He can't go round messin with God's children. I laughed so HARD!! He was like I am one of His too. Well, He must have a soft spot for me then. It was funny. So here's another funny one for marriage:
Today is Jillian Michaels DVD hope I make it.....My choice of foods, being lazy & complacent made me fat. My attention to every detail will make me healthier. What bad habit are you willing to tone down or give up to be healthier? For me, being complacent is what I want to rid myself of. Laziness I can shake off complacency is a BAD habit.
God bless & enjoy everyday!
