I am so ready for SPRING to arrive!!!!
So when Scott came home he said that he drove home in a full out
snow blizzard. We both came to the same conclusion that we are so
tired of the cold, cloudy, snowy days. Then he said something that I
hadn't thought of which made me count my blessings for what I have.
"He said I would take this snow any day rather than be going through
what those poor people are going through in Alabama"
Even though it is snowing like a day in December, I can stay warm in
the comfort of my home.
It is so sad to look at the video's and hear the people's horrible stories
of them losing everything they owned.
The most horrible stories are the ones where they we're able to survive
but one of their family members didn't or having a family
Just imagine your daughter or son, husband or wife,
father or mother missing .....that is a personal pain that I can't even grasp
what they are going through.
One couple lost their home of 30 years or the couple that just 2 months
ago bought their first dream home ever. The father who was eating dinner
with his children and felt the air pressure drop and knew instantly to get them
to safety in a special built closet just before the tornado hit, When it was done
they walked out to their house being totally leveled.
So yes I will take the cold, cloudy, snowy days of winter! Because I know someday
the sun will come out and melt all the snow away.
I am truly blessed to have my family that I love with all my heart safe and sound.
My home that I have many memories of raising my daughters, my grandson laughter
and toys strung all over, my son-in-law Jon love/smiles he gives us and last my husband's love he has given me all these years within these walls.
My prayers are with the people who's lives have been torn apart from the
tornado's and floods.
May today be the end of their dispair, that they may find a new dawn and begin
a new day of the rest of their life tomorrow.
God Bless Everyone!!

Stove Top Stuffing: For .99 cents when you by a combination of 10 items. Go to Coupons.com and there is a .50 coupon for Stove Top, print it twice. Making 2 boxes .99 cents.
(I just match it at Walmart so I didn't have to buy 10 items).
Best Foods: $2.99, Red Plum .75 cent coupon making them $2.24 each.
Albertson's ad ends today.
$5.00. In the mail last week you got a circular from Playland,
in there is a $3.00 coupon for the game Operation which makes
the game $2.00. Also you can go to Coupons.com and print out
2 coupons. They would make good birthday or Christmas gifts.
My sister even suggested that you can donate one to Toys For Tots
at Christmas time.
I bought the Connect 4 game last week when Target had them on
sale for $8.00, then I used one of the $3.00 coupons from Playland
making it $5.00.
I was going to post this last week sorry......but it was kinda hectic
dealing with a new addition to the family .....story will follow soon:)
I like to blog about my family, home improvements and what is
happening in my daily life.
I like to also blog about the bargains I find from couponing,
visiting other bloggers (thanks guys), or items on sale that we
I guess I'd just like to know if me blogging is interesting to you
and if it is helpful also.

I follow a few bargain bloggers
- Utah Deal Diva
- Coupons 4 Utah
- Deal Seeking Mom
- Hey, It's Free!
- Todd and Erin
They post updates on deals daily, even a few times during the day. So I always check on their blogs when I get on the computer because some deals have free giveaways for the first 5,000(example) people who sign up so they go quickly. Some might be for a number of coupons and when that number runs out you can't get any more. So the saying "first come first serve" is true in bargain shopping.
Set up an bargain email account, mine is through yahoo. This will keep the spamers, miscelleanous out of your good email account. You will also then be able to go to that account and see any offers you might want to take advantage of. For example I have offers from Kelloggs, Kraft, RCWilley, Fresh Market, etc.
When signing up for freebies or coupons they will ask you for your name, email account, address (where to send the freebie to) etc. So this account will help through this process also.
Other sites to sign up for are:
Recycle bank: You get points for various things and then you can cash in those points for free coupons (this week I cashed in 60 pts and got 2 free coupons for 2 cans of Friskies cat food)
SWAG Bucks: You get points for visiting various sites and you can get free Amazon gift cards for so many points, which I never signed up for until lately and now I have 70 bucks. (300 pts is worth like $50.00 amazon gift card)
Fresh Market: They will send you a weekly super bargain of 3 coupons. Last week I got Bounty paper towels, and Charmin. I have gotten Jiffy Peanut butter, Smuckers Jam, whipping cream for example.
Coupons.com: THEE big internet coupon site, when bringing it up it'll ask for your zip code I just click the "No Thanks" tab and then the coupons will come up. Go through and check the coupons you'd like and then print them out.
I check this site around every other day unless a blogger shows a deal for a product and then the coupon from there then I will go print it out for me.
NOTE: when printing these out with deals mentions on the paper I will write down the deal from what store and price for example. This week a blogger mentioned a coupon from Walgreens for Heinz vinegar 32 oz. for .99 cents on coupon.com they had a .50 cent coupon (which I printed one and then went back and printed another). So when the page came out printed I turned it over stuck it back in the computer printed it again, then wrote ...walgreens coupon .99 cents , then when I went to Walmart I gave them the walgreens coupon when ringing up the vinegar and then at the end of checking out I gave them the 2 .50 cent coupons which I got them for 50 cents each when originally they were $1.58.
Red Plum: This is like the circular you can get in the sunday paper. They have some of the coupons on line but not all of them that are in the circular. So on some of the products you'd like more coupons check there sometimes you might be able to get more.
Smart Source: This is the other circular you can get some coupons also.
Facebook: Alot of companies will give you either free samples or high redeemable coupons if you like them on facebook. Example: Starkist tuna, Miracle whip, Cheez its, Tide, etc If you don't have a facebook account it might be worth signing up.
I tried putting the links up but blogger won't do it so I'll try at a later date. Sorry....
These are some of them that I can think of now I am sure I'll remember more later. I hope this will get you started online for now.
Thanks see you at the next post:)
