coupon trains and other news

June 29th, 2006 at 03:53 pm

Midlight has mailed her trains off. She still wants to contribute coupons to the team, even though she is too swamped to keep up with a train. New babies, no sleep.

So, kicking off two new coupon trains today, one that bounces all over the place, and one that is extremely localized.

DH helped me sort coupons. The entire room is covered with onesies and twosies. So many I just have one or two of, didn't post, because hey, I do have a life, and hey, I'm not that great at typing and, well, no one is THAT interested in random coupons. But, it's quite funny and so sweet. The trouble with being a rocket scientist, as I've learned over the years, is that they are either completely unorganized, and the random piles make complete logic to them, or they are obsessively accurately and precisely (there is a difference!) organized to the point of shutting down the process. Which is why he doesn't cook.

DH was responsible for putting our coupon box together last year, when we started from scratch. Which is, again, why it has 72 categories. I think there are more dividers than coupons at times, but then again, when I'm rushing through a store, I do know EXACTLY where to look.

Email is backed up, the problem with 15 inches of rain and no power, I'm afraid. I have surveys to take, and companies to contact, and articles to write (sorry, Jeffrey!). I've probably spent more than I saved this week. DH managed to save two of our birch trees, but they are, well, topped off? Other than that, we are in great shape.

So, nothing new to report in the challenges or savings. Other than we are hanging in there.

    I just hope you realize how much your efforts are appreciated by us who benefit from them. The train has helped be so much in stretching our budget!!

    I am eager to get a good coupon box set up....have you perhaps, already written a how to on that???

    A big {hug} to you for all of your (and your DHs) hard work!

    I'm sure when you retired this is the hobby you and DH chose to participate in - right? Tee hee! Just kidding! I'll second Ray with a hearty thanks for all your hard work and great advice! Keep up the good work and try not to float away!!
