I Will Here By Be Known As "That Crazy Lady With The Coupons"!

We just finished a 3 week series at church about money. It made me realize just how much gets wasted on silly things that we don't really need. I usually think, "well, it's 5 bucks" or something around those lines, but when you stop to think about all those 2, 3, or 5 dollar purchases, it all adds up. I don't want to live in a rented apt. my whole life. I don't want to struggle month to month and worry about what big pitfall is coming next. I would like to take the kids to the movies every now and then without having to make the decision about what bill would have to wait in order to do that. It is time to make a change. Jon has been saying this for awhile, but we all know that I rarely listen to anyone. ; )

I have decided that starting today I will be paying much more attention to what we buy, how we buy it, and where we buy it from. I have always used coupons. I usually save a few bucks doing it, but I have come across a few blogs and message boards that have amazing amounts of info on different stores, weekly ads, rebates, etc, etc. I think with these tools and a new determination to do what is best for my family, it will pay off.
