CVSing, part 2

I tried to play the CVS game again, and I failed at my second attempt.I thought I was spending 6 ECB’s on something that would give me 6 ECB’s back, but I messed up and got the wrong package size and so it didn’t work. Lesson learned:4 Johnson and Johnson Easy Grip Buddy’s Soap…99 cents […]

My first Couponing Expedition

I have always loved to save money. Lately I have been researching “couponing”, kind of as a hobby. It is a good potential hobby for me because I don’t have a lot of money to spend.Today Deaky had his 6 month check up and got some more eczema prescriptions as well as some iron vitamins […]

Even though they drive me crazy sometimes, I can’t imagine life without them.I love my boys! (I wish that Deaky didn’t suffer from eczema…look at that little chapped face!) Jojo loves pirates. I love pirates. I love that Jojo loves pirates.
