I don’t know about you but I love the IDEA of using coupons.
The problem is, even though I collect them, I never use them. Hmm. Some people really do great with extreme couponing and save a ton of money, like seriously TONS of money using them. Someday, I do hope to be like them but I think it takes a lot of practice and time so it could be
forever a while until I join the ranks of penny pinchers. In the meantime, I finally made a file for my coupons to put in my desk drawer. It’s really nothing fancy, just a folder with coupons, so no picture but it makes me feel good to know where they are and specifically, that is, not all over my counters, shoved in drawers, on the floor, hiding in baskets, etc.
I also decided that instead of making a file for organizing my decorating ideas I’d just take advantage of my Pinterest account. The less paper in my life the better! I think pretty much everyone knows what Pinterest is, but if not, basically it is a way to save and organize images you like or find inspiring, etc. It’s pretty much a virtual bulletin board, the idea is somewhat brilliant actually. It’s really easy and fun to use and I have 6 invites if anyone out there wants one just let me know and I’ll send it your way!
If you happen to be interested in seeing what my Pintrest looks like I’ve added a link on the bottom right column of this page, feel free to check it out. I’m getting all fancy with these links… Now if I could just get on the ball with my super-duper long blog roll page, we’d be in good shape 🙂
Okay, so for today, I’m crossing those two items off of my list, I know they are boring and dull items to cross off, but they needed to be done and they were just perfect for this stormy achy Sunday.
2 more down and only 225 to go!
