We are all inventors, each sailing out on a voyage of discovery, guided each by a private chart, of which there is no duplicate. The world is all gates, all opportunities.

Saving Money

I've been inspired by one of my relatives to try super coupon shopping. I remember reading about it a few years ago and being interested but very intimidated. Seeing that a real person whom I knew existed was experimenting with this form of shopping and being successful at it made me deeply intrigued and itching to get started on my own. You can read about her forays into the super coupon phenomenom on her blog Adventures of a Wannabe Cheapskate, which I'm following with a passion. I've recently found another helpful site The Coupon Queen which is clearing up so many of my questions. I'm systematically going through these two blogs' archives to read every single tip they've ever typed on there. I sound obsessed. I like to think of it as committed. What with the crafts and couponing, it looks like I'll have more to write about. That's always a good thing. Therapeutically speaking. For me, I mean. It might be slow torture for anyone reading. But isn't that what's so great about this form of expression? I can put thoughts on here and have the satisfaction of having expressed myself, without worrying too much. There are no deadlines. No editors. Basically, no stress. I'm so glad I started this. This project has given me goals and a sense of focus I've been needing.

  2. Definitely! We will have to plan and go on a shopping trip together. It takes lots of planning and I'm so rusty myself, but we can do it and it's worth it!
