Life is what you make it. It's the small gestures that mean the most. My mom always was one for making the most of everything I guess that really helped me perhaps her sayings didn't make as much sense as they do now. I know now with a fiance I live with and a job I'm not thrilled with I have to look at all the small things in my life that do make me happy! Like getting him to put his dirty clothes in the hamper ha ha. I also know it's the small things him getting a box of canning jars he thinks I'll like or stopping in at work and having dinner with me. Just those things mean the world to me. Corny, I know but if people looked at the little things perhaps we'd all be happier.
So lately I've just had issues getting house work done and I've been very tired. Not sure if I am homesick or lacking vitamins or what. So I ordered some vitamins and got points while doing it. I think they were cheaper then buying them at wal-mart at least the one I got anyways. Nick is trying to lose weight so I am trying to help him by cooking better with less carbs. Or If he does get carbs there from veggies not boxes of pasta. He also has been complaining about grocery's and to be fair we do like to eat; and eat well! I have been trying to get more into coupon clipping but seriously we don't use a lot of brand names because usually even with a coupon they're more expensive. So we've been eating a lot of chicken and hamburger ( what we have most of in the fridge) and squash the one thing that did well in my garden! What's your trick to coupon use?
