Taking a Day Off

I've been busy with so much lately, especially in dealing with the last few things before my wife has her Visa Interview in Manila on the 3rd of November.  I've also been busy around the house cleaning and tending my vegetable garden, which I will write about on Saturday with pictures.  I've also been saving money through the use of coupons.  No this isn't extreme couponing, which is stupid in my opinion.  Why buy stuff that you're not going to use?  Just so you can have a garage full of more laundry detergent than you'll ever use in a lifetime?  I make my own laundry detergent for the cost of a couple dollars and an hour of my time.  In this sense I only cut coupons on stuff we use. Then it's a waiting game to see if the items go on sale before the coupon expires, which they usually do.  Last time I went to the store, dad and I bought $150 worth of groceries and only paid $66 saving $84 using coupons and sales combined.  This is actually more realistic than the show where you see them buy $1500 in stuff and get PAID $15 in the end.  Pleh, sorry, this doesn't happen in the real world only in the fantasy of TV.  However it is possible to save over 50% on your grocery bill through smart shopping and coupons.
