Monday July 27th- Rainy Gloomy Monday

Well today is the first day of my new blog. I'll be writing about the crazy life my family leads and all the really cool websites I find. My current obsession is coupons. I have a little competition with myself each time I go to the grocery to see if I can outdo the previous grocery trip on savings. Mind you, I'm not a die hard couponer, those women are pros, I just get ecstatic to save 10-15 dollars a trip. I'm fascinated by those women who pay less than $20 for a week's worth of groceries to feed their family of 5. The only thing I can figure is they seriously must not have an 18 year old boy living with them. Speaking of boys, my grocery bill this week will be reduced as my 18 year old boy is off to college for freshman camp. The whole college thing will be coming in future blogs because we are not only sending my son off to college but also my stepdaughter. They will be attending the same PRIVATE college. Come to think of it, maybe I need to become a die hard coupon lady!!

My other current obsession is signing up for freebies. I'm to the point that almost everyday I get something in the mail. It's great I feel like a little kid getting mail. I mean, come on, who doesn't love free stuff? However for those of you who might be concerned I only sign up for the free stuff that I will use and possibly purchase. Like today, someone had some kind of lunch sacks for little kids. I'm sure they were cute and if my kids were in preschool that would be great but I skipped them in hopes that some other mom would have the opportunity to get them and could use them.

I suppose this will do for a first time blog as it's almost time to leave this office and head home for a night out with the hubby then later we'll probably make sure our crops are harvested in FarmTown. If you don't know what it is don't look it up, it's referred to as Facebook crack!! hahaha

God Bless & have a safe and blissful evening!
