Wednesday WIP's

Hello everyone!
I know Wednesday is nearly over BUT I just had to write a post tonight.

I would have posted earlier BUT I was so busy today. 
I took my youngest to school. 
Came home and ate breakfast and had some coffee.
Went to Bible Study.
Then had a couple meetings.
I left my house a little after nine this morning and didn't get back home until nearly 3!!

I thoroughly enjoy doing the Lord's work and I just love staying busy.

Today's post is about my crochet works in progress.
I started this blanket on the 21st and this is as far as I have gotten.

This blanket is being made for another member of my women's Bible study group. 
You know the best part? She has no idea it is for her!

I just love the surprised looks when I give them blankets.

Anyway..that is all for now. I have some studying to do.

Until we meet again..
Stay blessed

Coupon update

Hello again all you beautiful people! 
I hope this day finds you well.
Today has been crazy bad for me. I think if anything could go wrong today it did BUT that is another post altogether.

Today I want to chat a little about my coupon ventures. I have posted a few posts about couponing before. I've even shared a video I made about my previous storage method.

Well, I have tried all the methods out there I think. I did the binder thing..Let met tell ya....whew that binder was HEAVY and it was a pain to keep organized and to find coupons and clean out expired coupons. It was a hassle and it made me quit couponing for a while.

Next I ventured into the coupon box. This method was a lot easier than the binder to organize all my clipped coupons. It was easy to take to the store. I loved it. I used it. I was content.

Well, with this summer being so hectic and with no end in sight, I just didn't have the 2-3+ hours on the Sunday or Monday to clip all the again I quit using coupons as much as I could have.

So now I am to this method. Using a file box and file folders. I will let the video tell you the details BUT I am loving this method. I can buy my papers and file them in about 15 minutes. When I get ready to go to the store I can clip what I KNOW I am going to use AND since I print out the lists (and I check the list with the inserts...sometimes my inserts don't have some of the coupons on the list and sometimes there are coupons not on the list so that is why it takes me 15 minutes) I can take my coupons to the store to grab an unadvertised deal if I need to. 

Enjoy the video and if there are any questions please feel free to ask in the comments or on youtube and I will try my best to answer them.

Until we meet again
Stay Blessed

I'm Back!!!

Hello everyone! 
I sure have missed you all! Guess what?!?
As most of you who follow me know, my computer decided to quit on me a while ago and being a single income family, we were not able to purchase one right away.
I missed blogging so much. So many things have happened I didn't get to tell you!

So here is a little snippet of what I have been up to.

I have been crocheting my little heart out!

I have also made ninja turtle masks, scarves and a couple other blankets but I was so excited to give them to their owners I forgot to take pictures...shame on me!

My oldest daughter went to homecoming this year! I cannot believe she is in high school already!!!

Daughter number 2 is in marching band so we have been to many football games and parades here lately.She is between the two girls in the front.

And fall is in full swing and the leaves are absolutely gorgeous in my area. This picture doesn't capture the beauty of it all.

We are a super busy family as of late. On top of the kids' activities, we have been remodeling some rooms in our house. We have also been making sure we keep up with our responsibilities at church.
I tell you, we have very few days were we can just sit down and breathe.

I hope all of you are doing well. I also hope you all look forward to more blog posts from me. It may take a bit for me to get on a regular schedule BUT I certainly will try to make sure I post at least once a week.

Until next time,
Stay blessed
