Bargain Shopper

Now that Roy and I are on one income we are trying to save money where we can. Like eating at home, Roy takes his lunch to work, etc. Well I went grocery shopping yesterday and for the first time ever I used coupons and shopped the sales at Fry's. As I was checking out the cashier was ringing up my groceries and I was looking at the total like, Oh my goodness I did not think I was spending this much. But at the very end, he scanned my Fry's card and then my coupons. My total was $88.02 and then it came down to $52.36. I was so super excited. I saved $35.66! Oh yeah bargain shopper! ha ha
Well the moral to this story is I want to be able to save money like that all the time if not save more. So I need your help. Do any of you have any good strategies, Internet sites, or ideas for coupons or just being a savvy shopper. Please comment or email me your ideas. It will be much appreciated.

All at Once

This week has been a very interesting one. It was finals week, which I couldn't wait for it to be over. But not only am I done with school now but I'm also done with work. Not by choice. The owner of my restaurant came in on Wednesday night to tell me they were letting me go. His reasoning: I was lazy, the staff had lost confidence in me and he felt I didn't want to be a manager anymore. If you know me and you have seen me work, I am not a lazy person. Yes at times I did sit but every manager does. And from what I am told, they sit more then I do. The owner was right on one thing and that is, I don't want to be a manager anymore. I was planning on quitting August 1st because I really disliked the place and the General Manager. But I guess I'll be done a little earlier than that. So I went from a extremely busy person with school and work to a completely open schedule. So call, email, or text me whenever because I'll be around. :)

20 Weeks

Today I am officially half way through my pregnancy. I can't believe how fast it has gone by. She is kicking a lot which is really exciting. It is the craziest feeling. I have felt her a couple times on the outside which I was really excited because I want Roy to be able to feel her. But it seems like whenever we are together she not kicking as much or as hard. So he can't feel it on the outside. But that's ok, soon enough I'm sure he'll be able to feel her. We are still thinking of names. We haven't agreed on any yet but that's ok, we still have enough time. If you have any ideas, throw them our way. I like really different names so don't be shy.
