  1. This might be my favorite list yet! I LOVE #7! My couponing career has fluctuated over the last three years, depending on the ages and stages of my children. Don't be too hard on yourself if your couponing wanes once Baby arrives. Just do the very best you can, and realize that sometimes saving time is just as important as saving money!

  2. I so enjoyed our lengthy phone date too - felt connected and almost like we were together...almost. :) Isn't it nice feeling accomplished if you save even a wee bit of $ these days? I'm with Ashley on some weeks are better than others depending on which kid let me look at coupons let alone actually get them out at the store, but I always love knowing I tried and that I saved something by doing virtually nothing, even $1.00. That is $1.00 that can go towards a margarita. Ha! I am glad you had a good week and are feeling productive and as ready as you can feel. Don't forget to rest and relax this weekend too!
