So, I had every intention on blogging Saturday but I had a lupus flare and it completely zapped my energy. After grocery shopping and hanging out with my sisters, I was supposed to come home and brag about how much I saved at the store, but I crashed and burned. I think I was asleep before my head touched the pillow. I had that “I’m so angry that if I don’t go to bed NOW, somebody is going to get hurt” type of sleepiness.
Then, at 2:30am, I woke up in pain in my side, in my back and I had a migraine. I didn’t even get sleepy until a half hour before I had to take my daughter to swim class – ten hours later. I couldn’t take any meds because they just make me sleepy or woozy and I never like feeling like that. Sure, my body would’ve felt better, but it’s like walking in a fog. I decided to just drink some coffee. LOL Yes, I have tea and I know that would’ve been a better choice, but I have a serious coffee addiction. Thankfully, it doesn’t keep me awake. It totally relaxes me.
Having said all of that, I didn’t save a lot of money. I did okay, but I recognize that I needed more help with couponing. I’ve signed up to a few of the Facebook couponing groups to get tips and tricks. I’ll go tomorrow to see how well I do on buying school supplies at Target using their ideas. Either I need more coupons or I need to make a list and travel to different stores instead of getting everything at one. I did end up going to Kroger to get my free eggs and free Ragu pasta sauce using the coupons they sent me though. Love those! Here are my savings:
I’ll post my savings from Target tomorrow – God willing. Good night!
