Hard at work

September 6th, 2006 at 04:25 pm

I am hard at work trying to figure out this whole couponing thing. Right now, it is fun. But I can see the fun waning and then where will I be? It takes me forever. I don't feel like spending money on a coupon organizer when I am not even convinced I will continue. And I am not patient enough to stick each coupon in its own sleeve of a photo album. Therefore, I am spending forever hunting through my coupons and matching them to sale prices. I haven't found any truly great deals yet except things I will never use. But, like I said, the search is amusing me for the moment. But I am spending way too much precious time on it.

I think I wrote that we fixed the drippy water problem. We turned off the water underneath the sink. Today I did even better than that. I figured out that I can leave the cold water available and it does not drip. So it is only the hot water that is the problem. I wonder if my energy bill will now go down since hot drip water is not running down the drain.

I hate these days when no money comes in. I feel inactive in my money quests. I think that is why I enjoy the couponing. I feel as though I am doing something.

    You don't need to buy anything to sort coupons. Get envelopes, even used ones from the mail. Mark them, pets, cleaning, snacks, drinks, health and beauty, etc. and sort your coupons into the envelopes and put a rubber band around it. Viola! Then when you get new coupons, just stick them in the matching envelope. It is worth it, when you think that you can recoup at least the tax you have to pay! Free money!

    I love your journal and relate so well to your "planning your plan" and the insomnia ramblings - jeez I thought I was the only one who does that.
    Well done on your progress - sometimes I think the "no income days" are little tests to see how focused we are.
    Keep it going Smile
