Today was payday which means YAY for $$$ but BOO to having to go to Walmart for groceries lol. I know I know..I'm not complaining we have money for food but who really wants to go to Walmart on a Friday night. But I also get to go to Target, which always scares my husband who is afraid when I go there alone and with the debit card in hand haha
Im kidding..I have gotten alot better with spending..especially at Target and even with scrapbooking. OKay, so maybe thats because I dont work at Archivers anymore and Im not tempted everyday but hey..I can say its all willpower cant I?! lol
I now have made it easier on me. I create lists and try to find coupons galore for everything! Another trick of mine is to take money out of the atm so that I cant spend anything more than that and I have to choose the little extras that seem to just beg and jump into my cart for me to adopt. Aiden always comes first though and I spoil him greatly even when its snacks to clothing to those silly 5.00 movies Target always gets me with at the checkouts...As Brent calls it..I am a markerters Dream baby...make anything pink and blinged out and I HAVE TO HAVE IT!!
I have to share this money saving thing for all my fellow mommies out there with children in diapers. If you have a toys r us or babies r us near you...sign up for the rewards programs!! I never buy diapers full price (We buy Aiden the Pampers Cruisers Value Box) which is 41.99 plus tax..its crazy but he comes first (see above paragraph) I can always find coupons in the newspaper...I get babies R us coupons, and I also get pampers.com coupons. They take their coupon AND a manufacturer coupon..so I never pay full price and the rewards is when you buy 9 they will send you a coupon for a free value box.. It was SO nice to walk in last week grab his huge box and not pay a dime!! Hey..Im going to buy these diapers anyways we might as well get a freebie or two.
