A Change of Focus

Okay, so I dropped the ball with 28 days of being thankful. It's not that I haven't been thinking about it. That project just sort of dropped down on my list when it got more difficult. I plan to revisit the idea in the near future. I'm going to read the book in it's entirety first and then come back to the implementation phase later.

For now my focus has shifted to couponing - in a big way. I've been reading blogs, clipping coupons, filing coupons, watching YouTube videos on how to make a coupon notebook, filling out rebate forms, matching coupons with sales and shopping for the best deals out there. Whew! It makes my tired just writing all that down. Imagine how exhausted I am when I actually do all that. It's all for a good cause - to stretch the grocery dollars a little further. You see, since my husband took a pay cut and the industry he's in is struggling to get work it seems wise to brush up on the skills needed to pinch those pennies. So I'm back at it.

Couponing is no longer optional. But I don't want to spend more time doing it than I need to, so I'm on a quest for the most time efficient way to get the job done. More to come in the days ahead.
