CRAFT CORNER-Happy Sunday. I just had to post the new CTMH promo running in June. I LOVE the acrylic stamp sets and when it's FREE I just love it even more. Buy 2 get 1 free. I have not been very pro-active about my CTMH business. (ok truth be told I haven't sold a thing in months, I haven't even kept my quota up for over a year and currently stand as a jr consultant...) Anyways...I have always loved being a part of the CTMH team and spent all of last evening with my bestie upline Sandy doing scrapbooking pages. Thing is...I have been so out of the loop (my fault totally) I missed last months promo and she just happened to have one on hand so I spent the entire evening using one paper pack and it made me get motivated to, if nothing else place an order myself and tell my small followers about THIS months promo. So here it is, and I am going to place an order for myself today too. Hoping to be more on this as the summer progresses.
Still been committed to scraping my life weekly. I am right up to the last day. This is pretty impressive for me, right now it seems kindof silly especially when I have a DULL week, but someday when I am wracking my brain about the time when and how old was....I can simply look at my book and ta-duh there is the answer.
Still need to do some scrambling on making cards for #1 Son's graduation.
Every other week I try and hit the grocery store and have been happy to make claim that I am hitting my mim. $150- limit or below. I cannot say that we do not eat out a few times a week sometimes and yes we do make small runs throughout the week, but for about two months now, I have been committed to a $300- grocery bill per month. I have been a CRAZY nut about cutting coupons, following theses coupon blogs and just recently found that I can print coupons off the computer too. Each trip I seem to be getting better at it. Last trip I saved $112.00 after coupons and instore savings. I was under my $150- (total bill was roughly $122.00). I really should get some kind of system to put that savings somewhere (maybe for my next grocery trip) and start regulating what my family spends on meals out, little stops for the extras during the week, nonsence buys (like those God awfully delicious little Debbie cakes and garbage my hubby buys...and to make it worse he never uses a coupon) as well as plan a menu and stick with it. I am getting there...one thing at a time.
So far, I am failing in this department of my life. Any previous blogs note that I have not always been so good at taking care of myself...at least physically. I made one small step today and had whole grain toast this morning instead of hitting up a dougnut or a requesting my traditional Sunday morning baliy. Was thinking of a bike ride this afternoon...but it's raining, maybe the sun will peek it's head out and later I can still do that. If not we still do have that YMCA membership!!!!! DUH!
